Polyphony Digital has dropped the Gran Turismo 7 (opens in new tab) Replace 1.11, which fixes the microtransaction hell by vastly rising race reward quantities. Alongside this, you’ve obtained new occasions and loads of small upgrades.
It’s been an odd few weeks because the launch of GT7. It began with fanfare, then hassle got here as Polyphony nerfed credit score rewards and began to ruin the game (opens in new tab).
Following the swift and sharp response that made this the lowest-rated Sony sport on Metacritic, a screeching U-turn was made and that is the primary of many responses to the issues.
What has been mounted?
The full patch notes (opens in new tab) go into all of the element about each replace made throughout the board, together with small-but-welcome tweaks comparable to:
- Including an extra degree to the anti-lag system.
- Elevating the max in-game credit cap to 100 million.
- Updates to automotive physics simulation, comparable to bettering soar landings on grime tracks.
- Bettering the penalty system to be a bit fairer on Goodwood and penalize shortcut-takers higher.
- Choice to play music in 7.1 encompass sound whereas racing.
- Rising the time restrict of automotive buy invites to 30 days.
- Rising the variety of used automobiles and legendary automobiles on sale at anyone time.
Nonetheless, this replace does much more than that, which we are able to sum up in three factors.
Dip into the world circuits and mission menus and also you’ll discover some new additions:
- World Touring Automotive 600 Tokyo Expressway East Clockwise.
- World Touring Automotive 700 24 Heures du Mans Racing Circuit.
- World Touring Automotive 800 Sardegna Highway Observe A.
- ‘The Human Comedy’ 1-hour endurance race missions (accessible at Collector’s Stage 23).
That is the large one. Polyphony promised huge will increase and we definitely obtained huge will increase. Credit score reward quantities have been vastly elevated for the latter half of World Circuit, Arcade and Customized Races, Circuit Expertise missions, on-line races and Missions — principally throughout each sort of occasion.
To offer you a flavour of what to anticipate, endurance occasions are dispensing 1.2 million credit apiece, and if you happen to get all gold on Nurburgring Nordschleife Circuit Expertise, that’s 5 million credit.
You possibly can simply earn more money in at some point on this sport than you’ve made in a whole week (from private expertise). Additionally, if you happen to already went gold in Circuit Expertise occasions, simply pop into the sector choice display and hit the exit button to obtain the up to date award.
What’s left to repair?
One apparent one which Sony has confirmed is coming, however isn’t right here but, is the choice to promote your automobiles. This characteristic needs to be arriving in a future replace, because it was on the separate checklist with no set launch window.
Lastly, I sound like a damaged document now, however Polyphony actually must make the entire sport’s single-player content material obtainable in offline mode.
Not all of us are graced with good web connectivity. For instance, I stay subsequent to a ruddy river and that (for some odd purpose) means I’m the sufferer of a number of outages. Getting this drawback in direction of the top of a protracted race is a correct kick within the tooth.
Hundreds of thousands of gamers are left with mere crumbs of content material when servers are in upkeep mode. I’m certain this gained’t be the final time I ask. Please, Sony! Make it so!
