Polyphony Digital pushed out patch 1.06 for Gran Turismo 7 only a week ago, but it's now moved things forward with another update. Version 1.07 is available to download and install right now on PlayStation 5 and PS4, and it makes a whole host of fixes and improvements.
This patch appears to be mostly concerned with squashing bugs or fixing errors, but there is a new feature added that streamers and YouTubers will be happy about. A new Broadcast Mode has been added to the settings menu, which disables all licensed music within the game to prevent any copyright issues.
Elsewhere, there are a bunch of isolated issues addressed such as the wrong tyres being equipped in certain events, an adjustment to the physics model, and more. As we said, this isn't an update filled with exciting additions — just some housekeeping and tidying up, which is fine by us.
Here are the full patch notes.
Main Features Implemented
Added a [Broadcast Mode] option to the 'Sound Volume' settings within the 'Global' tab of the Options menu. For details, please refer to the 'Broadcast Mode' Added to the 'Sound Volume' Settings' article.
