Downloading and installing

You can launch GT Sport after the initial “Data to Start Application” has finished downloading, which will allow you to play in Arcade mode with a limited selection of tracks and cars while the rest of the game data downloads. You can check the progress of the download by going to  [Notifications] on your PS4 system.

The GT Sport game data download is 43 GB in size, with a mandatory 12.4 GB ‘Day 1’ patch also required before online functionality will be available. Please make sure you have enough free space on the PS4 system (we recommend at least double the required space) to make sure the download and install is successful.

Saving your progress

Gran Turismo Sport is designed primarily as an online experience. Progress will only be saved in Gran Turismo Sport during online gameplay. If you are unable to connect to the Internet, you will only be able to play in Arcade mode. This mode offers a limited selection of cars and tracks, and does not count towards your game progression while offline.

Gran Turismo Sport supports autosaving. To save manually, select 'Save' from the GT Sport main menu.

Display settings and 4K/HDR

When you launch GT Sport for the first time you will be asked to choose your display settings. If your display device is HDR compatible, or if you're using a PS4 Pro and your display device is 4K ready, you'll be given the option to switch these settings on. If your display device does not support 4K or HDR, these options will be greyed out. Find out more about how to enable 4K resolution on your PS4 Pro system.

You can change the display settings at any time in-game by selecting the GT Menu icon in the top left corner of the main menu, then selection 'Options' > 'Display Settings'.

Game progression and rewards

Credits

Credits are earned through completing in-game events, and can be used to purchase new cars from the Brand Central area of the main menu. Aside from the pre-order and digital deluxe bonuses, credits are only earned through in-game progress.
