It was only over a week ago that the release date for Gran Turismo Sport was revealed, and it was confirmed that the beta for this game has been cancelled. More information about the title will be disclosed as the release comes near and while there’s no confirmation on this just yet, it appears that Gran Turismo Sport may not have an offline career mode.
It merits mentioning here that this game isn’t a proper sequel to the previous Gran Turismo title, the sequel is still in the pipeline, and GT Sport has already been described as a “Prologue type experience” by series director Kazunori Yamauchi.
Several slides detailing the campaign mode have been posted on GTPlanet forums. They reveal that the campaign is divided into Beginner’s School which features driving lessons, a Circuit Experience that allows players to familiarize themselves with tracks, Mission Challenge that requires players to meet specific goals and Racing Etiquette where players learn about the teachings of sportsmanship.
The online multiplayer is called Sports Mode, and that’s the end of it. Surely one must ask where the offline career mode has gone, has it not been included on purpose?
It certainly appears to right now even though none of this has been officially confirmed as yet. We’ll update when we find out more about this.
