As teased over the weekend, Gran Turismo 7 studio Polyphony Digital has today revealed the PS5, PS4 racer's biggest update yet. Dubbed SPEC II, it adds a four-player split-screen Couch mode, seven more cars, a new track in the Lake Louise Snow Circuit, the chance to try SOPHY AI in Quick Race, and an extra 50 challenges. All of this will be completely free, with the 1.40 patch going live tomorrow.
The seven new cars you can hit the track with are as follows:
- Dodge Charger R/T 426 Hemi '68
- Dodge Challenger SRT Demon '18
- Lexus LFA '10
- Mercedes-Benz 190 E 2.5-16 Evolution II '91
- NISMO 400R '95
- Porsche 911 GT3 RS (992) '22
- Tesla Model 3 Performance '23
You could combine one of the new racing cars with a new track, which is set in Canada. Across three variations (long track, short track, and tri-oval), the entirely original course challenges you to master high-speed and low-speed corners as well as picturesque straights, all at the base of the World Heritage Canadian Rockies.
Alongside new Menus to complete in the GT Café, weekly challenges, and a Master License event, PS5 players can now enjoy four-player split-screen. "The updated local multiplayer function will allow you to change cars in the pre-race menu, making it more user-friendly than ever. Each player must have an individual controller to play Split Screen races."
There's also going to be new Scapes, an updated progression screen to map your way through the campaign, and the Photo Mode has received a refresh. All of this arrives free of charge in the 1.40 update, available to download tomorrow. What excites you the most about this Gran Turismo 7 patch? Let us know in the comments below.
