New content coming to ‘Gran Turismo Sport’…

When it released, Gran Turismo Sport was roundly criticised for not having enough content to satisfy its players. Now, Polyphony Digital has confirmed that it will offer a free expansion in its December update. The update will include 12 new cars and an array of single-player races.

Company president Kazunori Yamauchi previously went on record as saying that 500 new cars would be added to the game in due time. With this update for GT Sport, it’s just a fraction of that number. The cars that will be added in this update are as follows:

  • 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
  • Suzuki Swift Sport
  • Volkswagen Sambabus Typ 2 (T1)
  • Chris Holstrom Concepts 1967 Chevy Nova
  • Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Convertible (C3)

Yamauchi-san has also announced that 50 more cars are going to make their way into GT Sport by March, with more cars and tracks to follow thereafter.

As for where you will be able to drive these cars, Polyphony Digital has decided to reintroduce the Special Events page, rebranded in this game as the “GT League”, which includes favourites such as the Sunday Cup, Clubman Cup and drivetrain challenge. The GT League is split into four divisions: beginner, amateur, professional and endurance. Like the car roster, more races will be added to these events in the coming months.

Furthermore, players will now be able to use the livery editor, scapes mode and campaign while offline. Saving your progress, however, still requires an internet connection.

Patch 1,06 will start to roll out on November 27 2017.
