Kazunori Yamauchi, founder of Polyphony Digital and creator of Gran Turismo, took to the PlayStation Blog to announce that an upcoming beta for Gran Turismo Sport will be coming. The closed beta is scheduled for March 17 for U.S. players.
The closed beta will give fans a sneak peek at the all-new driver profile, track and car selections, and see first hand how Polyphony Digital plans to pave the future of competitive racing. Watch the brand new closed beta trailer down below:
Participants will be able to choose from a select rotation of cars and tracks each day to race online against others during the Beta phases. Track and car selections will vary during this period, and we made sure to offer different race class categories and course configurations to properly test our GT fans!
As with most BETA programs, in order for the development team to capture data in an optimal manner, the sample size needs to be increased gradually and in stages. While we begin to roll out the BETA, we have decided that the time differences across the U.S. are best matched to the development team in Tokyo.
Players who want to get their hands on the upcoming racer, can sign up for the closed beta here.
