Gran Turismo Sport launched exclusively onto PS4 a few weeks ago. While a lot of folks were excited to finally have a Gran Turismo title come to the system, GT Sport wasn’t totally well-received due to changes that were made to the formula compared to past entries in the series. It looks like the folks over at Polyphony heard those complaints loud and clear and are seeking to make amends.
A post was recently rolled out onto the official PlayStation Blog which details some big new updates coming to GT Sport over the course of the next few months, leading into next year. Things will kick off in just a few days (November 27th, to be exact) when patch 1.06 is released. This new patch will add three new free cars to the roster and will also allow players to finally access the Campaign, Scapes and Livery Editor modes offline. It was mentioned that you’d still need to have an Internet connection to save your progress, but something is better than nothing, right?
The next update will be coming next month (December 2017) and will add an-all new single-player mode: GT League. It’s based on the old GT Mode that was in past entries and will allow players to progress through a series of cup competitions, starting from the bottom and making their way to the big leagues. It will also include endurance races to really put players to the test. It was confirmed that new races will be added to the various leagues in 2018.
The final announcement is that 12 new free cars will be added to the game via another update coming in December. It has also been stated that by about 50 cars will be added to GT Sport between now and March 2018. Not bad! Here’s a rundown of the new vehicles coming next month:
- Chevrolet — Corvette Stingray Convertible (C3)
- Chris Holstrom Concepts — 1967 Chevy Nova
- Ferrari — Enzo Ferrari
- Ferrari — F40
- Ford — F-150 SVT Raptor
- KTM — X-BOW R
- Lamborghini — Countach LP400
- Mazda — RX-7 Spirit R Type A (FD)
- Nissan — Skyline GT-R V?spec II (R32)
- Nissan — Skyline GT-R V?spec II Nür (R34)
- Suzuki — Swift Sport
- Volkswagen — Samba Bus Type 2 (T1)
