Ah, so this is Games as a Service done the correct way. As promised, Polyphony Digital has released a ginormous update for Gran Turismo Sport, which adds a requested single player campaign, 12 new cars, and a bunch of other features all free of charge. You can download it right now – in fact, if your PlayStation 4’s in Rest Mode it may have already grabbed it while you were in bed.
The headline addition is the GT League, a more traditional single player campaign featuring a series of races for you to complete. Some of these have restrictions on which vehicles you can use, giving you plenty of incentive to put Gran Turismo Sport’s growing car roster through its paces. Speaking of which, the update also includes 12 brand new cars. Here’s what’s on offer:
- 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)
If that’s not enough, there are also some new holiday-themed Scapes for you to photograph your cars in, while Lewis Hamilton has dropped by to share some tips on the famous Nurburgring circuit. It’s an absolutely monstrous update for a game which is guaranteed to grow through 2018 and beyond. And if you haven’t bought the racer yet, it’s currently on sale on the European PlayStation Store.
