Gran Turismo Sport Receiving Offline Play, New Cars, And More
When Gran Turismo Sport launched for the PlayStation 4 back in October, it was met with mixed reactions due to its relatively low selection of cars and maps. It was also very apparent that they were making the jump to an online racing model and leaving a vast amount of offline play in the dust. That being said, a recent PlayStation blog post goes into detail about what’s coming to the title, including offline gameplay, new cars, and a career mode.
In the post, they mention that new cars will begin arriving in-game on Monday, November 27. Also coming with patch 1.06 next week will be the ability to play a few different modes while offline. Livery Editor, Scapes, and the Campaign will all be available to play without internet. It’s worth noting that in order to save your progress, an internet connection is required. “Various tweaks and adjustments to balance the gameplay” will also be joining in on the fun with the next patch.
The month of December is when things will really begin to heat up for Gran Turismo Sport players. A new “GT League” will be arriving next month, which is not unlike previous titles’ “GT Mode”. Previewed in the images above, this single-player mode will allow drivers to race “through a series of cup competitions from beginner to pro levels, and even partake in endurance races!” Joining the garage in December will also be 12 new cars, all of which are listed below:
- 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 — Samba Bus Type 2 (T1)
- Chris Holstrom Concepts — 1967 Chevy Nova
- Chevrolet — Corvette Stingray Convertible (C3)
The blog post mentions that “a total of approximately 50 cars are already planned for addition to the game” before March 2018. New tracks are also expected to arrive in the future, but no word has been given as to when they will come to fruition.
