  1. Even More Cars For GT Sport Coming In February Polyphony Digital boss Kazunori Yamauchi has dropped a tweet letting us know that a new content update with another 12 cars is coming next week. Like before, the posting also includes an image with silhouetted cars, but again, many of the shapes and lines are recognisable. And this time it appears that this addition will be made up of mainly road cars. Those that are clear to make out are the original shape Audi R8, Toyota Supra Mk3 (which joins its younger offering from last month), and Lamborghini Aventador. There is also a nice throw in of the old and new with the classic and modern-day Alpine A110 making appearances. Also worth noting is the potential De Tomaso Pantera, some classic US Muscle cars, and of particular interest, an open-wheeler on the bottom right. The others are open to debate, as even though their general shapes can be made out, the type is still up for debate. This update will bring the total of the planned ‘50 cars before March’ now to 37. And with March basically here, the wait to find out what the final lot will be, shouldn’t be a long one at all. Looking to this one, all eyes will be on what else might be packed in. As those that have come before haven’t only just come bearing only new metal, but also new events, new track layouts, and even whole new tracks!
  2. More GT Sport DLC Cars In January A second lot of DLC cars are dropping into Gran Turismo Sport next week, according to a tweet from series supremo Kazunori Yamauchi. Sticking to their plan to add "approximately 50 cars" before March 2018, this second release carries on the immense good will of the initial 3 and 12 cars that arrived in two separate updates at the end of last year, with this further ten incoming taking us to the half-way point of that goal. What cars are coming this time? Just like before, a number of the vehicles to be included are player favourites, with some that were staunchly missed from the very beginning. This, along with other factors, gave the game a somewhat slow start, but recently they have been turning GT Sport into a must have title for racing fans on PlayStation 4. The tweet itself also included an image with silhouettes of the cars slightly distorted. And even though they’re like that, we can somewhat confidently identify a fair few of them such as the: Ferrari 330 P4, Jaguar XJ-13, Ford GT40, Dodge Viper, Lamborghini Diablo, ...and a Toyota Supra. [caption id=attachment_7641" align="aligncenter" width="800] Now this is a damn fine selection of cars.[/caption] That last one is surprising, especially when you consider that Toyota road cars have been missing from all the main racing games. (has GT Sport got exclusivity???) Speculations at those that remain are out there and you can make up your own minds and hazard a guess at them if you want. (I’m thinking like others that the third from left in row 2 is the McLaren F1) We don’t know the day of next week the update will land, but at least it isn’t going to be too long a wait.

  3. GT Sport: New DLC Cars, Play Offline & Traditional Campaign It’s been just over a month since Gran Turismo Sport launched and already Polyphony Digital are getting ready to act on the feedback they have been given. Two updates are destined to drop for November and December, each of them bringing with them their own surprises and goodies. In a posting made on the official PlayStation Blog by Kazunori Yamauchi, we learn that as of the start of next week, patch 1.06 aims to right some wrongs and deliver some improvements, whereas the December update will see the classic GT Mode campaign return, now titled ‘GT League’, together with 12 FREE cars! Hello GT Mode-o If you haven’t heard, then GT Sport hasn’t gone down too well with classic GT players because of the seriously lacking single player campaign mode it has, and if this was a reason you yourself held off on buying then you’ll be delighted to hear that the classic GT Mode long-time players know and love is making its appearance with the December update, with the new name, ‘GT League’. [gallery type=rectangular" link="file" size="small-post-image" ids="7433,7434,7435,7436] The old favourites are here: Sunday Cup, Clubman Cup and the FF/MR/FR Challenges, plus more. In the past these were hampered because of GT’s abysmal on-rails AI, but players tolerated it because it allowed them to take their cars out on the many excellent tracks available, against some form of competition, but with GT Sport improving in this area finally, the fun factor of these should hopefully be taken up a notch. It is quite amazing to see this happen so quickly after initial release, and there is some debate as to whether this has been in the pipeline or has been done in response to the wealth of criticism regarding a true campaign missing from the new game. Whatever the case may be, it is just damn good to see GT Sport turning into a proper Gran Turismo, and quickly at that! And with a promise of more to come in 2018, this should see even more players picking it up. No Online Required*! Another big annoyance for many is the mandatory need to be online to use non online-centric modes such as the Scapes and Livery Editor. Fortunately that’s another irk that will be sorted out with the first update, as of 1.06 there will no longer be a need to be online to use both of these or the forthcoming GT League... *BUT, an online connection is still required to SAVE your progress in them. So yeah, if the servers or your connection are down you can still use these modes (unlike before), but to save that extra progress will need to wait until online connectivity returns. GT Sport DLC Cars We’re used to Kaz and his hyperbole but if there is one area where he and his team stay true to it is in the adding of new cars to their games. And a total of fifteen cars will be transported to players’ games for free with the upcoming updates, starting with three new vehicles in November and a further twelve in December. The first of those to roll on through are the Zagato IsoRivolta Vision GT (how many cars/concepts can you see in this thing?), Shelby Cobra 427, and the Audi R18 racer. [gallery type=rectangular" link="file" size="seven-post-image" ids="7437,7438,7439,7440,7441,7442,7443,7444,7445] December’s shipment continues on the randomness in choice by including everything from two iconic Ferraris, a Suzuki hot hatch, a monster Ford Raptor, Nissan R32 and R34 Skylines, and even a VW Samba Bus (Camper). The full inventory can be seen below: 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) What are the odds that there’s going to be some crazy mixed-class grids on show after this! GT Sport’s Future It may have been a bit of a stalled start for GT Sport with those hesitant to make a purchase because of the change from previous titles, but the commitment to support the title from now and beyond looks to be one that should reassure all types of player: be they multiplayer racing diehards, keen virtual automotive photographers, talented livery designers, or single player campaign aficionados. From now to March 2018, a total of approximately 50 cars are already planned for addition to the game. And the updates will continue beyond March! You can of course look forward to the addition of new tracks as well, so stay tuned! PD (and Kaz?) appear to realise all of these areas need attention, and as long as people keep making their voices heard, and in good numbers, chances are they could get acted upon as perhaps they are starting to finally get, that listening to your community will result in a better game.

  4. Better sound? That would be Grand With every new Gran Turismo there is always that inevitable wait, delay and disappointment felt due to the lack of attention in the areas that have been cried out to be improved by its community and fans. GT Sport was looking to continue this tradition on – and may still do so – but with the announcement recently that the new GT will support 4K, HDR and in a rather surprising admission, not have VR being fully-playable but instead having a ‘VR Tour’ mode, it certainly seemed to be more of the same with little attention not being paid again to those areas that need it. However off-screen videos captured at Paris Games Week and the Paris Motor Show are showing a cause for excitement as an area that has been sorely lacking for the series, sound, is showing a real sense of improvement. Gone is the super screechy tyre squealing, replaced instead with a real-world noise that is more authentic and hints to what the car is doing. And when you have reports like this by Eurogamer showing their surprise at the sound being thrown out by what they are playing, there has to be something going on that people are noticing. Engine notes are starting to properly resemble those of the real thing – the Mercedes-AMG GT S seen in the video by PlaneteGT above has that throaty angry sound that AMG Mercs are known for and the Dodge Charger shown in the video by MotoGamesTV below has a real grunt to it. It’s not perfect but it is an improvement for sure. There is still work to be done but it does suggest that the grab of the former Forza Audio technician was a damn good one, and that they are showing Polyphony Digital how to do what has been asked for so long. If Kaz and co can see just how much accurate sound means to people then there is a real hope that GT Sport, even if not a proper GT title (that will be GT7) because of its more esports focus could be the game to take the GT series out of the shadows that it is, in my opinion, now in due to titles such as Forza Motorsport, Assetto Corsa (though still needing work on the multiplayer side) and even Project CARS. Considering how long it has taken to get into and tackle this area, I guess we might see accurate damage represented in GT8 ??? GT Sport is due out in 2017 for PlayStation 4 and will be enhanced for PS4 Pro along with some doodads for PS VR.
  5. The Real Pic Taking Simulator A large amount of new screens have been released for GT Sport and with them we can see that Polyphony Digital have been busy little squirrels. (why... why squirrels?) 2016 has been a bit of a torrid affair for Gran Turismo fans, starting with the FIA-partnered event in July that seemed to show a less than stellar looking version of the game. As is the case though with anything GT, that worry is being put to bed with every morsel of media and impression that manages to slide out. The latest is this dumping of 78 images featuring a selection of road, racing and rally cars on a variety of circuits, along with a first look at a new to GT dirt location called – if the banners plotted along the course are to be believed – Fishermans Ranch. With steep uphill sections that inevitably end up in a jump and some high-speed sections with some hairpin bends at the end, this new addition will ideally turn out to be another well-designed fictional environment that the Polyphony team do so well. As you may know, the main man behind GT, Kazunori Yamauchi, is an avid racer and can regularly be found participating in major races such as the Nürburgring 24 hour. In that race this year he was one of the drivers who raced in the #101 BMW M6 GT3 and this car, just like a number of his previous will appear in GT Sport. Visuals have never been an issue for the series and natural colouring and lighting has always been a strong point of the GT series and again Polyphony are looking to excel at this better than any other. Always being able to get the most out of the hardware that’s available and continuing to impress onlookers (usually family) with those glorious replays. It is of course a little tricky to judge a GT game by only its still images as they have almost always been through the usual the post-processing tricks. However, What is clear to see, is that the game will be a looker and that with every day from now until release it looks like Polyphony are well on the case of bringing Sport up to scratch. And with PlayStation VR coming fast and the rumoured more powerful Neo version of the PS4 likely to be unveiled at a Sony event next month, the potential of this game is increasing massively. Good things come to those who wait. Indeed. Gran Turismo Sport is scheduled for release exclusively for the Playstation 4 on November 15th in North America and Asia, November 16th in Europe, and the UK gets whatever is left in the cargo container on the 18th.
