A massive free update is going to make GT Sport what it always should’ve been.
If you’ve been stalking the latest PS4 and PS4 Pro Black Friday deals, you’ll probably have seen lots of GT Sport bundles. A few weeks ago, I’d have said they were good, but a massive update to Sony’s flagships racing game now means those deals look even better.
Announced on Sony’s blog page today, the new, free update addresses my two biggest problems with GT Sport: a shortage of single-player content, and a severe lack of classic cars.
The blog post says a new GT League will be aimed at single players and will give gamers the same cups and endurance races we used to get from the old GT games. What’s more, 12 cars will also be introduced to the game, with an old Lamborghini Countach, R32 Nissan Skyline GT-R V and an RX-7 being my personal favourites. The post goes on to say that there’ll be a total of 50 cars added for free between now and March 2018. Below are the cars included in next week’s update.
- 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 Sambabus Typ 2 (T1)
- Chris Holstrom Concepts 1967 Chevy Nova
- Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Convertible (C3)
Fans of racing games and GT Sport should be very happy about this. Not only does this new update give you the single player mode GT Sport lacked at launch, but it also finally gives us some classic, legendary cars. With any luck, the next 50 vehicles will include the Toyota GT One, Suzuki Pikes Peak car, Pennzoil Skyline and all those other classic Gran Turismo cars.
