Gran Turismo Sport – New Update Adjusts The Penalty System

The Gran Turismo Sport update frenzy continues. This time, there is no new content, but amongst others an important change to the penalty system.

What Was Wrong?

With the current penalty system, many users in the community reported issues of penalties being awarded for very minor contacts when racing online. This lead to quite controversial opinions.

However, Polyphony has now taken action and has adjusted the penalty system accordingly with the new version 1.14 update.

Apart from that, a few other changes also made it into the patch. See below for details.

Gran Turismo Sport version 1.14 is now available for download!
