Polyphony Digital appears to have settled into its post-launch content progression plan for: Gran Turismo 7, as the team continued to fill out the game’s vehicle roster, progress balance, and other miscellaneous functions somewhat slowly, albeit steadily. The latest in the long line of these content updates doesn’t break the mold, but it sure is interesting for car collectors of GT7†
Specifically, the team just announced that: Gran Turismo 7 would get its 1.17 update on June 23. While the peak of GT7June’s update is undoubtedly the introduction of the legendary 1998 Suzuki Escudo Pikes Peak Special, there’s also a new track and three all-new menus for players to navigate through at the Gran Turismo Cafe.
Update 1.17 is very similar to: Gran TurismoApril’s update 1.13. With three new vehicles and a newly added historic race track, the update underscores the franchise’s commitment to racing culture. The new cars are most notably the aforementioned Pikes Peak Escudo, Suzuki’s new GT model of the baseline Vision car, and the 1932 Ford Roadster. As neat as the Vision and Roadster may be, long time GT players are probably most interested in Escudo as it used to be one of the old ones Gran Turismo the ultimate crank cars of games when properly modified.
As for the track, New York’s Watkins Glen is included in update 1.17. “The Glen” is a dense, dynamic track with two disparate halves that push racers to their limits. While the first half of the track mainly features fast sections with fast through corners, the second half is more technically inclined as it requires tight turns and a tight pace. There is also a high-speed chicane towards the end of the course, but it is not yet known whether this track will also have its own version of the track. Gran Turismo 7 kidnapper UFO.
Finally, update 1.17 also introduces three major new menu items in the Gran Turismo Cafe. These are the Toyota 86 Collection, Honda Type R Collection and the Rotary Engine Collection. All three unlocked at relatively high collecting levels meaning new players may need to complete others first Gran Turismo 7 Menu Books instead.
While Gran Turismo 7The full list of cars was remarkably impressive on launch day, Polyphony Digital looks set to fill it up even more. The team hasn’t said anything about major paid expansion packs or DLC yet, so it’s possible the game will continue to get moderate content drops for the foreseeable future. Be that as it may, fresh content is always a good thing, and GT7 is on track to get more of it.
Gran Turismo 7 is available on PS4 and PS5.
