The Gran Turismo Sport demo has now come to an end. The PS4 exclusive experience ran for three days, and gave players a chance to check out the Sport, Campaign and Arcade modes. Multiplayer was enabled, too, allowing for a thorough testing of online functionality against other players. Any in-game credit earned, as well as unlocked vehicles, will be transferable to the full game when it launches on October 17.
As for how many players test-drove the demo, GT Sport‘s game director Kaz Yamauchi tweeted out that it had surpassed 1 million:
I was surprised to see over 1 million players off the bat in the Open Beta. #GTsport

That’s a pretty good figure for a PS4 exclusive racing title. It also took place during the week, when some potential demo testers may have been busy. Weekends are generally better for peak player counts.
Were you one of the 1 million+ players? If so, what did you think of the demo build?
In other GT Sport news, the game’s complete car list has been revealed. You should also watch this PSVR gameplay, which shows off the Nurburgring Track.
