Free new cars arrive next week, new career mode arrives next month.
Polyphony Digital president Kazunori Yamauchi has revealed some of the new content set to come to Gran Turismo Sport over the next few weeks.
Patch 1.06, available on November 27, will roll out with three free new cars, including a Vision GT model from Italian design house Zagato, Audi’s last LMP1 racer, and the Shelby Cobra 427. According to Yamauchi the patch will also disable the online-only requirement for the livery editor, photo mode, and campaign mode, but he notes “you will still require internet access to save your progress.”
GT Sport’s free December update will include a new single player mode called the “GT League.” GT League is based on the classic GT Mode of previous Gran Turismo games and will include a variety of familiar cup competitions, championships, and endurance races for players to progress through.
The December update will also come with 12 new cars, several of which will bring a much-needed injection of retro content into the game. Those cars include:
- 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)
- Ford F-150 SVT Raptor
- Lamborghini Countach LP400
- Ferrari F40
- Ferrari Enzo Ferrari
- KTM X-BOW R
- Suzuki Swift Sport
- Volkswagen Sambabus Type 2 (T1)
- Chris Holstrom Concepts 1967 Chevy Nova
- Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Convertible (C3)
According to Yamauchi, Polyphony is planning to add approximately 50 cars to the game before March 2018. He also stressed the “updates will continue beyond March” and that players can look forward to the addition of new tracks.
As discussed in IGN’s review of GT Sport, the significant lack of car and track content compared to competitors like Project CARS 2 was one of the game’s major weaknesses.
