The modes available in the game are as follows; Arcade Mode, Campaign, Brand Central, Sport Mode, Social Features, Livery Editor and Scapes.

Series producer Kazunori Yamauchi has stated that the previously announced beta will probably not go ahead. This is to release the game sooner, as the beta would have delayed the game by about three months. There has also been no mention of the titles PlayStation VR compatibility as of yet.
There are several different editions of Gran Turismo Sport that are now available for pre-order. There will be a Collector’s Edition, a Steel Book edition, a Digital Deluxe and a Bonus edition alongside the vanilla release.
