"Gran Turismo Sport" is getting new tracks as Sony Interactive Entertainment recently announced a new press kit which will be included in its upcoming racing game. Moreover, the game is also expected to reveal a number of excellent cars and recently, Sony revealed that Porsche will be coming to the game. "Gran Turismo Sport" is already set to launch as an exclusive on the Sony PS4 this year.

New Screenshots of Upcoming Tracks Revealed

The "Gran Turismo Sport" publisher also released new screenshots of the upcoming racing game. Sony revealed a closer look at the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution rally cars and the Ford Focus coming into the game. In addition, three new tracks have been revealed including the Blue Moon Bay, Dragontrail Seaside, and Sardegna Windmills.

Porsche Is Coming To "Gran Turismo Sport"

In other news, the "Gran Turismo" series has been known to give a wide variety of cars to its gamers. However, in its 20-year history, there has been one big omission--the Porsche. Recently, the studio behind the series, Polyphony, worked around this using cars from the independent automaker RUF, which sells Porsche-based cars.

"Gran Turismo Sport" is now confirmed to include the Porsche. The cars are set to be available on Tuesday as gameplay screenshots were revealed featuring the 911 GT3 RS. This is the only Porsche confirmed for the upcoming game yet.

"Gran Turismo Sport" is expected to feature other Porsche cars in the game via future expansion packs. It should be noted that the Porsche video game scarcity is due to the fact that Electronic Arts, the studio behind the "Real Racing" and the "Need For Speed" series had an exclusive licensing. However, some early "Forza" games unveiled Porsche cars as "Forza Motorsport Six" first offered its Porsche expansion package in 2016.

"Gran Turismo Sport" also announced a closed beta program for select players last month. Take note that the game was originally scheduled to release before the end of 2016. However, as is with other "Gran Turismo" games, its release date was pushed back to 2017. Moreover, the exact release date is yet to be revealed other than the time frame of sometime this year. Watch Porsche coming to the game in the video below:
