GT Sport Closed Beta Starts on March 17th

GT Sport must be progressing nicely because Polyphony Digital is ready to launch a closed beta for GT Sport. The beta will start on March 17th for select U.S. PSN IDs. There is a beta sign-up page here and if chosen you can expect your invite to be sent to your PS4’s dashboard. And don’t worry if you are not selected at first because there is still a chance you will get in as more and more people will be brought in gradually.

Here is what players can expect from the beta per the PlayStation Blog:

“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!

This will also be the first time users will see how the Driver Profile is integrated within GT Sport. The introduction of Sportsmanship Rating (tracks a player’s behavior and manners on-track) and Driver Rating (represents the overall speed of the player and how well they perform in races) will ensure those that race online will be equally matched, naturally creating a balanced group of competitive drivers for every race.”

It was also noted that the servers will only be open at specific times of the day which will be announced across GT’s social media channels.
