on July 29, 2016 6:47 AM

During a presentation from Chinajoy, Gran Turismo Sport Producer Kazunori Yamauchi shared a few more screenshots of the game, on top of a few interesting details.

You can see the screenshots at the bottom of the post, but there is more. The presentation mentioned 60 mission challenges, contributing to a total of 115 campaign missions for the offline mode of the game. An earlier version of the presentation mentioned 62 mission challenges for a total of 117. Apparently, two mission challenges might have been removed.

Another interesting element are the slides detailing the game’s “Advanced matchmaking system.” It will rate players for Driver Class and Sportmanship points.

Driver Class will depend on group average rating, qualify results and race results. Sportsmanship points will indicate a driver’s manners on the track, and will decrease or increase depending on the factors that you can see below.

This is a system in some ways similar to what sim racers experience in iRacing, but it will be very interesting to see how it will perform in real gameplay, considering that the system in iRacing combines the action of human race officials with the automated mechanics.
