A Proper Campaign Mode Is Coming To Gran Turismo Sport In December, New Cars Coming Next Week
Tremendous news for disappointed GT fans, Gran Turismo Sport’s next updates will start adding more cars into the list. The 1.06 update will start off with the addition of three new cars. They are:
- IsoRivolta Zagato Vision Gran Turismo (Gr.X)
- Audi R18 (Audi Sport Team Joest) (Gr.1)
- Shelby Cobra 427 (N500)
This may not seem much, but it also comes alongside the ability to access the Livery Editor, Scapes and Campaign Mode whilst offline (though you still require online connection to save) and various other improvements. The list is as follows:
- Campaign Mode, Scapes, and the Livery Editor features will become available also when offline. (However, an online connection is still required to save game progress)
- Some elements of the car physics simulation model have been improved. This can be noticed especially in commercial cars, which exhibit less grip on the road, with improved sense of realism and controllability [sic]
- In line with the changes above, we have adjusted the difficulty level of the Driving School and Mission Challenges in the Campaign Mode, to allow a smoother game experience
- In Sport mode races, the judgement algorithm of the Sportsmanship Rating (SR) has been improved. Furthermore, it is also now possible to see the deductions of SR points not only for yourself, but also for other drivers involved in a collision/incident with your car
- ‘Autumn Leaves’ has been added to the featured Scapes photos. Some new photo spots have also been added
Improvements to how SR works and changes to how commercial cars drive are welcome new additions. Stay tuned for the update next week.
The big update coming next month, 1.07 will finally add what most would consider a proper campaign mode. The GT League will feature at least 89 different races broken into various leagues and cups. Those are not screens from GT4 as the top image there, those are indeed from GT Sport. It certainly evokes that spirit so expect the good old Sunday Cup and Clubman Cup, the various drivetrain races and all the way to crazy endurance races to be available.
12 more cars will also be added in update 1.07:
- 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 Samba Bus Type 2 (T1)
- Chris Holstrom Concepts 1967 Chevy Nova
- Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Convertible (C3)
The RX-7 and two Nissan Skyline will surely be celebrated by old fans of the series. The Countach and F40 makes sure older beasts get some love in GT Sport as well. Suzuki and KTM will have their first car in GT Sport with this update as well.
The announcement promises around 50 cars to be added until March 2018, with new tracks coming as well.
Our review of GT Sport regards highly of its multiplayer racing focus, but shedding a lot of content along the way certainly will disappoint most fans. Thankfully developers Polyphony are keeping their promise of free additional content, now let’s hope they will deliver more in due time.
