Gran Turismo Sport has been the main sim racing title on the PlayStation 4 since it arrived in October 2017.

With a massive list of tracks and a garage of over 300 cars, players have been living out their dreams behind the wheel for a while now.

GT Sport has been well-supported by Polyphony Digital since its release, with constant content updates, graphics overhauls, and even the addition of a livery editor.

With rumours of Gran Turismo 7 being a launch title for the PlayStation 5 later this year, it is reassuring for current racers to see GT Sport continue to receive support.
