Gran Turismo Sport: Game info


Game overview/synopsis

Gran Turismo is a popular and long-running racing game franchise that is exclusive to the Sony PlayStation.

Players can drive a range of makes and models in a variety of tournaments, ranging from rally courses to traditional tracks such as Le Mans and Silverstone.

Gran Turismo hasn't historically had a huge esports scene like other games, but it can be played competitively, and the latest game in the series (Gran Turismo Sport) has a greater esports focus.
