Almost like a Christmas present, Sony announced two big updates coming to GT Sport that add a long-awaited offline mode and new content. On November 27th, the first update, labelled patch 1.06, three cars will be added for the low price of free. The cars in question were not specified, but images do exist. In addition, the Livery Editor, Scapes and Campaign modes will be playable without an internet connection. However, saving will still require online connectivity. So, if you have shoddy Wi-Fi, then this update won’t be that beneficial for you. Then again, if you do have poor internet connection, updates in general would be more of a nuisance.
The second update will provide more content, including 12 cars (such as the Mazda RX-7, Ferrari F40, Suzuki Swift Sport, and Ford F-150 SVT Raptor) and GT League, which brings back competition cups the racing series is known for. Endurance races are also in the new mode. This update will arrive in December of this year (would suck if it was 2018). No specific date was shown, might be a PSX announcement. The publisher promises to add more races in GT League in 2018. Speaking of 2018, Sony also announced there will be around 50 new cars from now to March 2018. New tracks were teased in that time span as well. (More images are on PlayStation’s Flickr profile.)
At the rate of these updates, it’s likely the game will immensely improve by next year and complaints are already being addressed in the rather disappointing installment of the long-lasting racer. It’s also likely future updates for early 2018 will be shown at PSX of this year, so look out for that. As always, the majesty of updates are here to stay in the industry with big ones for games like Splatoon 2 and Titanfall 2 that vastly ameliorate already solid gaming experiences!
What do you think of this update? Does it excite you? Tickle your fancy? Rev you up like an engine? Pump you up like a tire? …Okay, this got weird, but let me know in the comments below.
