One of the really cool aspects of Gran Turismo Sport is that it's compatible with Sony's virtual reality (VR) headset.
That's right, your immersion in this game gets even deeper thanks to VR, and here we're going to talk you through how to use it.
Before you get started
Using a VR headset is essentially tricking your body into believing that you are in a world that isn't real.
You can see and hear the world you are in, and that can be quite disorientating to some. It can even make some people feel motion sickness. Just a heads up!
Jumping into the VR content in Gran Turismo Sport is very simple.
First, you must connect a PlayStationVR headset and a PlayStationCamera to your PlayStation 4 console, and turn on the power. For more details on this, please refer to the instruction manuals for each.
To play in virtual reality, first head to the Arcade area of the game in the top left of the main menu screen, and select the option for the VR Tour.
Selecting this will prompt you to turn on your VR headset. Once connected, you will be able to choose between VR Drive, VR Time Trial and VR showroom.
VR Drive, VR Time Trial & VR Showroom
VR Drive allows you to experience what it's like to be sat inside a car, with the steering wheel and dashboard in front of you while you're surrounded by the car's interior. Here, you can race against AI opponents in virtually any car (the only exceptions are the ones without any interior view) at every track available in the game.
VR Time Trial is similar, except that it's a, um, time trial instead of a race, and the aim here is to beat your lap time. This is perhaps the best way to get to grips with the world of VR racing early on.
Finally, there's the brilliant VR Showroom, which, to some of you, probably won't seem all that fun. Here, you move to a dark room where you will be able to look closely at any of the game’s cars, and admire the little details of each car from every angle.
Unfortunately, that's it. The main campaign and online modes cannot be played in VR as the compatibility is limited to this section in the Arcade mode only.
