Gran Turismo Sport review

In Gran Turismo Sport review we felt that despite most of the game requiring you to be online, it delivers a compelling racing experience. This is thanks to great looking cars and tracks, a more than competent Driving School mode, and Challenge mode in its single-player campaign.

Do you need PS Plus to play Gran Turismo Sport?

Granted you’ll need to be online to play Gran Turismo Sport, you won’t need PS Plus. As with all PlayStation titles, PS Plus will only be needed for the online multiplayer and portions of the Arcade Mode including limited two-player split screen. Single player races on select tracks and time trials can still be played offline.
