Gran Turismo 7

Gran Turismo 7 may have had a rough launch, which includes blowback from the in-game purchases, but the game has steadily worked on these aspects. To gain favor amongst the fans of the series, developer Polyphony Digital has now released a free update. This update is live right now, and it offers players a new version of an existing track along with three new cars. The in-game currency has already been altered, allowing players to earn more in challenges to buy the expansive list of cares more easily. This should make acquiring these three new cars a breeze. You can see the free update trailer below:

One of the biggest things that have been added to Gran Turismo 7 via the free update, is the 24h format of the Spa-Francorchamps circuit. This new expanded format has been added to the overall track list. The placement of the pit area has also been changed from the normal format to the 24-hour format. On top of the new track, there are cityscapes that have been added. These are the Gassho-style Houses in Ainokura and Cherry Blossoms at Night. Players can now go explore these new additions. Now for the part which fans are waiting for, the new cars. Three cars have also been added to the April update, which includes the Subaru BRZ GT300 ’21, the Subaru BRZ S ’21, and the Suzuki Cappuccino (EA11R) ’91. All three cars look stunning in the trailer, with the Suzuki Cappuccino looking more like a smart car. However, it is likely a fast one.

Polyphony Digital recently revamped their entire in-game currency aspect in a previous update, after the game caught some serious flak from the cars being too expensive and little rewards coming from challenges and races. Now it appears as if Gran Turismo 7 has rolled out this new update to say “thank you” to the fans that have stuck around. Also, since this update has been aptly titled the “April Update,” it could mean that smaller updates are on the way. Should Polyphony Digital add more tracks and cars on a month-to-month basis, fans will certainly be ecstatic. That is a huge undertaking for any developer, but EA certainly knows the value of listening to fans and delivering on their promises. Also, considering fans were mad about the multiplayer aspect of the gaming always needing work, and the in-game purchases, Polyphony Digital should be wanting to do things to impress their loyal fanbase.

Gran Turismo 7 was released on March 4th, and the game now has provided a free update a mere month and a half later. That’s quite impressive. It appears as if Polyphony Digital aimed to make up for the past issues when the game launched, which is a fantastic idea. Now that this free update can keep fans of the game busy when acquiring the new cars, the developer can continue working on what might be smaller updates as the months go on. Overhauling the game’s currency gains was a step in the right direction, but adding more end-game cars could be the course to take from here on out.
