Gran Turismo Sport's release date is set for October 18 in the UK, watch the new trailer

GT Sport's release date has finally been confirmed: the next game in Sony's flagship racing series will punch the gas and roar into your PS4's Blu-ray drive (or hard drive, if you prefer downloads) on October 18 in the UK and across Europe. It'll hit North America the day before, October 17.

The high-end competition-focused racing sim will arrive with three editions spread across a handful of retailers: the grand Collector's Edition is available on Amazon, GAME, and ShopTo; the SteelBook edition is only on Amazon; and Tesco gets to hand out the Day 1 Edition. The game is available for pre-order now.
