The European Gran Turismo Sport beta starts this Saturday, and it’s not too late to take part.
Following on from the North American beta – which was held in March – Sony has confirmed that the European beta for Gran Turismo Sport will begin on Saturday, April 15, at 14:00 BST.
According to Sony the first wave of infrastructure testing was a vital step in the development of the game. The EU beta will continue to test server stability, and provide an opportunity for more feedback on game play. Sony will be issuing invites to successful applicants from today, so you should have plenty of time to download the game and find your driving gloves.
If you haven’t signed up, don’t worry, there’s still time to get involved. Head over to the Gran Turismo website, complete the beta application form, and think nice things about Kazunori Yamauchi.
The 1.04 patch update is also available from today, and includes a number changes implemented following feedback from previous play tests.

We hate to ask, but...
Thumbsticks has a couple of goals. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough to meet those goals! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
