With the Gran Turismo movie right around the hairpin bend, Sony will be expecting sales of sim racer Gran Turismo 7 to increase. Polyphony Digital, reliable as ever, has announced that its next free update will release next month, on 7th August. Teased on series creator Kazunori Yamauchi’s social media feed, there’ll be four new cars included in the patch – but the Japanese developer usually sprinkles in some other content, including Scapes and Menus.
The list of cars includes the Toyota GR Corolla Morizo Edition, although this won’t be available to purchase from Brand Central immediately. Instead, it’ll be available in Sport Mode as part of the 2023 Toyota Gazoo Racing GT Cup, and anyone who participates in the tournament will be gifted the car for free by 27th August.
The other three cars include the Maserati MC20, the Chevrolet Corvette, and the Toyota Hiace, which is of course a delivery van! It’s an interesting mix of vehicles, but Gran Turismo has always been a little eccentric with its selections, so we’re on board with the offering.
To be honest, we wouldn’t rule out further content relating to the movie, but for now all we have to go on is Yamauchi’s tweet. We expect a full announcement to follow in the coming week or so.
