Sony has revealed its roadmap for upcoming Gran Turismo
Sport content for the remainder of 2017, as well as early 2018. The free updates
revealed include new cars, an extensive GT League campaign mode, the addition
of new offline features, and more.
With more than 26 million hours of gameplay around the world
over the first few weeks of GT Sport since launch, developer Polyphony Digital
aims to expand the experience with Patch 1.06 in November and the introduction
of GT League in December.
From November 27th, Polyphony Digital will roll out new cars
to GT Sport, with three unique models leading the way:
In addition to the new cars, the patch dropping on November
27th will also enable offline access for the Livery Editor, Scapes and Campaign
modes. However, you will still need an internet connection to save your
progress, which is a shame, as if you quit the game before it connects to the
server and saves your data, you will lose whatever you did over the timeframe
you were playing offline.
Polyphony Digital also said there will be “various tweaks
and adjustments to balance the gameplay” included in this update.
Coming in December as part of another free update, fans can
look forward to the new single-player experience called ‘GT League.’ Based on
the classic ‘GT Mode’ campaign of previous titles in the franchise, players can
look forward to racing through a series of cup competitions from beginner to
pro levels. They can even partake in endurance races!
The below screenshots should give you an idea of what to
expect from this mode once it rolls out worldwide in December, but Polyphony
Digital has teased that additional races will be added to these leagues in
In addition, the following 12 cars will also be added to
Gran Turismo Sport in December’s free update:
These cars come at no additional cost to the player, and
will simply be available to purchase in Gran Turismo Sport using in-game
credits. In fact, Sony says players can expect a total of approximately 50 cars
from now to March 2018, and teased that content updates will continue beyond
March as well.
Polyphony Digital also revealed that new tracks will be
coming to Gran Turismo Sport as well, but didn’t specify when they will be
added, and if they will come at an additional cost. With online racing being a core
focus of Gran Turismo Sport, it would make sense for Sony to add these tracks
for free to the game in order to avoid splitting the player base.
Sony has yet to confirm what new tracks players can look forward
to, but we’re sure the wishlists are substantial. From Imola to Silverstone, as
well as Indianapolis and Tsukuba Circuit, there’s a bunch of circuits we’d love
to see added into Gran Turismo Sport.
GT Sport launched on October 17th, 2017 for PlayStation 4.
It’s the first entry in the long-running racing series to make its debut on Sony’s
latest console. It also takes advantage of PS4 Pro with Dynamic 4K and HDR
features, as well as PlayStation VR with a virtual-reality tour experience. We’ll
be sure to keep you updated with all future Gran Turismo Sport announcements as
they happen, so keep it on FullThrottle for the latest.
