Gran Turismo Sport, the next major release in the popular Gran Turismo racing franchise, will be released on November 15 in North America and Japan.
Publisher Sony Interactive Entertainment revealed the news earlier today in a post on the official PlayStation blog.
Sony and Polyphony Digital first unveiled the game at the annual Paris Games Week trade show last October. At the time, the two stressed that this was not Gran Turismo 7 but rather, a completely new game that'll be more substantial than earlier Prologue releases. It'll be a PlayStation 4 exclusive and the first Gran Turismo game for the PS4.
With today's announcement comes a new trailer and details regarding both a pre-order bonus and a limited edition version.
Those who pre-order GT Sport will receive the 3-Car Pack which grants early access to the Ford Mustang Group B Rally Car, the Toyota FT-1 Vision GT Group 3 and the Peugeot 908 HDi FAP LMP1. Individual retailers including GameStop and Amazon are also offering their own pre-order bonuses consisting of various cars, avatars, themes and in-game credit.
The limited edition bundle, priced at $69.99, includes what Sony says is more than $130 in content including the GT Sport starter pack (eight cars), a livery sticker pack, 30 GT Sport-themed avatars, an in-game racing helmet, a limited edition steel book plus packaging and $1 million of in-game credit.
