Gran Turismo Sport closed beta announced for PAL users

12 Apr 17

After a successful Gran Tursimo Sport closed beta in North America, Sony has announced one will be held now for PAL users. 

PAL users include gamers living in Europe, Australia, New Zealand and more. If you live in New Zealand, the closed beta phase for Gran Turismo Sport starts on April 16th at 01:00 NZST. 

A series of online races will then occur over that weekend. Bear in mind, a closed beta means only select people are able to participate chosen at random. To try your luck, you can sign up to the beta by clicking here. The racing schedule for Kiwis can be seen below.

It was also revealed that Porsche will be added for the first time in the series. A new screenshot shows that the game will have the Porsche 911 GT3 RS.
