Gran Turismo Sport will feature racing star Lewis Hamilton as an in-game mentor.
Lewis will “reveal his driving philosophy and techniques through driving images and interviews for players,” Sony detailed over on the PlayStation Blog.
Hamilton used the opportunity to speak of his love for the franchise.
“I have been playing Gran Turismo since I was a child, so to actually be part of the gameplay design has been an incredible experience,” he said.
“From watching Lewis drive on TV all these years, I had an idea of how he might drive, but the experience of watching him drive in person was well beyond my wildest expectations,” Polyphony’s Kazunori Yamauchi added. “And I’m really glad to be able to share his driving and philosophy with the players in Gran Turismo.”
Gran Turismo Sport heads to the PS4 next week on 18 October.
