Gran Turismo – Patch 1.15 To Add 13 New Cars, Tsukuba Circuit, 3 GT League Events And More Tomorrow

Whilst it was F1 2017’s turn for updates today, Gran Turismo Sport is up next tomorrow. Recent teasers already promised a big update and those expectations were indeed met.

These Are the 13 Cars

Many of them should already be familiar from previous (Gran Turismo) titles. The full list:

  • Lexus au TOM’S RC F ‘16 (Gr.2)
  • Nissan MOTUL AUTECH GT-R ‘16 (Gr.2)
  • Honda RAYBRIG NSX CONCEPT-GT ‘16 (Gr.2)
  • Gran Turismo Red Bull X2014 Standard ‘14 (Gr.X)
  • Gran Turismo Red Bull X2014 Junior ‘14 (Gr.X)
  • Aston Martin DB11 ’16 (N600)
  • BMW M3 Sport Evolution ’89 (N200)
  • Eckerts Rod & Custom Mach Forty (N800)
  • Ford GT40 Mark I ’66 (N400)
  • Lexus RC F GT3 (Emil Frey Racing) ’17 (Gr.3)
  • Mazda RX-7 GT-X (FC) ’90 (N200)
  • Nissan GT-R NISMO ’17 (N600)
  • Nissan SKYLINE GT-R V・spec (R33) ’97 (N300)

Finally, a New Track!

One of the main points of critique with Gran Turismo Sport is its rather sparse track selection. Polyphony is now adding a community favourite to GT Sport – the mighty Tsukuba Circuit!

Located just around the corner of Tokyo in Shimotsuma city, it has been host to various Japanese racing events since its opening in 1970. Its relatively short length 2,045 m allows for a very technical and compact layout.

It Doesn’t Stop There?

Three new features on top of the afore mentioned were especially emphasized:

  • ‘VR Time Trial’ has been added to the VR Tour Mode.
  • “Cherry Blossoms” has been added to the ‘Featured’ section of Scapes.
  • Museums have been added to the Mini and Renault Sport ‘Brand Central’ sections.

Gran Turismo Sport version 1.15 is set for release tomorrow on a PlayStation 4 near you!
