Gran Turismo 6 PS3 PlayStation 3

While we eagerly await information on the PlayStation 4's first Gran Turismo game, developer Polyphony Digital is still cranking out updates for its last-gen predecessor. Announced on the PlayStation Blog earlier today – and available to download right now – a new Gran Turismo 6 update sees the popular B-Spec mode finally added to the simulation racer.

For those out of the loop, this allows you to assign career events to AI drivers, meaning that endurances races don't have to be quite as gruelling – unless you want them to be. The latest update – numbered v1.16 for those keeping track – also incorporates the Mid-Field Raceway circuit from Gran Turismo 2, complete with time of day and weather options.

Finally, there's a new vehicle in the form of the GT Vision Mini Clubman, which has been custom designed for the first-party release. This is all in addition to the usual roster of tweaks and bug fixes. Of course, those of you reading this will probably be pondering where the property's inevitable PS4 entry has got to. Creator Kazunori Yamauchi says that it's on the way.
