June 21st, 2012 by Jordan

The official Italian Gran Turismo website has just published (UPDATE: this content has since been removed) new details about Gran Turismo 5‘s upcoming downloadable content.

As expected, Twin Ring Motegi will be coming to the game, including four different configurations: the Road Course, Super Speedway, East Course, and West Course. It will be available at a price of €5.00 (prices in other regions have not yet been confirmed).

    Nice track… But the car i have only two word… Another one?!?!? Its ridiculous the price they charge for a track and even more the price for 1!!!! car… Thats one of the reasons why i stopped playing GT5!

      You’re not paying for the car, and you’re getting 4 variations.

      We are getting the Scion FR-S for free.

      Not only the NSX, but the Viper. ANother game got it almost at the sme tiem it was released.

      ^ Actually… Forza 4 STILL hasn’t gotten it yet (but there’s gameplay of it on the TGTT), surprisingly, but it’s been confirmed to be in Forza Horizon.

      Unless you mean another “another game”…

      what he means by NO CARS is that we ALREADY HAVE the FR-S, it’s called the Toyota 86

    Well I’m happy with any new track and have no problems with paying for it – especially with the four variations and I’ll be very happy with the Scion – especially if it comes with some different aero options than the 86. But I do agree we need more than this and more often.

    • Jun. 21, 4:03pm
      DA6righthand

      My thoughts exactly. I’ll pay for whatever dlc they put out. It’s like investing in the game. I just hope for bigger and better things in the future and I’ll be happy for the here and now.

    Same car again, wheres the bzr too lol. Want brz sti and trd gt 86 or gt300 gt 86. welcome the new track but prefer tracks

    Ok Hmm – But if you already paid for GT4 – why the hell should we pay again for tracks that is coming straight from the game, I know that some porting/data has to be altered, But That is called Service, and nursing the Millions of buyers/Fans, Not something you take money for, than produce some new stuff, and make the money there – This has been said before by many and probably grown-ups, GT5 will be the Most expensive Race game ever, before it even are Finished – I actually think it’s a Donkey methods to take for money for old GT tracks ( Just conversions) that already have been paid several times – I’m also hungry for new tracks, but Damn if i will see a Donkey in the mirror every time PD sends New Tracks out if they haven’t been totally updated, then it’s just the worst of the worst kind of Capitalism, which we already know is killing the economy worldwide – Damn!!
    The next Japanese tourist guy that comes to the statue of the little Mermaid in CPH, will have to pay me, to take a picture of the old statue * It’s solid and apparently good honest business :(….

    I’m sick of PD half assing it. Old track and a car we already have with a different badge. Look at how good and how frequent FM4 DLC is? I’m a die hard GT fan but I can’t deny that forza is the better title at the moment

    • Jun. 21, 4:22pm

    This track has been available since the last GT update of 400+mb. All you have to do is purchase via PSN and activate it just like previous content.
    It’s an extra track cool now if only PD could add some new cars…..:)

    It’s cool they add new tracks and cars. But THEY NEVER ADD NEW EVENTS!.
    Come on PD, new events should come for all DLC packs!.

    Playing this game online is not an option. Too many disconnects, online players only do “drags” (and yet they claim GT5’s AI is uber bad…)

  25. Jun. 21, 3:04pm
    Quakebass

    What’s with all the hate on PD for “recycling” the classic tracks…? Sure, there’s some high-priority real-world tracks out there (and we know PD’s working on Bathurst), but there’s licensing issues.

    Possible solution for this problem? PD creates new “fake” tracks.

    I said previously “we’ll be lucky if we get anything”

    Twin Ring Motegi is great as a track, I’ll enjoy driving on it as someone who didn’t get to play GT Academy 2012 due to the massive download time.

    But if they are just going to waste even 30 seconds on replacing the toyota badge with a scion badge, I’m not going to defend PD when angry fans start throwing bricks with “BAKA!” on them through kaz’s bedroom window. I personally don’t understand the point in taking up that extra harddrive space with a duplicate.

    • Jun. 21, 2:58pm
      Quakebass

      I don’t think the cars take up THAT much space… but I may be wrong. Usually it’s the physics/engine edits and tracks that take up more space in the updates. I do sorta see the point in it though; It’s simple short work PD can do to get a “new” car out, and it’s free. So the only thing that one could really complain about with it is the space it take up on their HD… but that’s only if they don’t want the car… I believe there are slight body differences (aside from the badge) and maybe performance differences, but don’t take me up on that.

    • Jun. 21, 3:17pm

      Also, the Scion should be LHD. If it’s not then I won’t be impressed with PD.

      I don’t mind them recycling tracks, I just wish they’d improve the models and textures on the tracks. Instead of just doing a flat out conversion.

    • Jun. 21, 2:44pm
      roflcoptor

      I have to disagree, I’d love to see some of the “old” tracks like Hong Kong and El Capitan appearing as DLC, with updated graphics.

    • Jun. 21, 2:54pm
      Quakebass

      Yeah, some of the most wanted tracks are ones from previous games… Plus, they’re much easier to get licensing for… because there isn’t any! XD

      Seattle is one I’d LOVE to see. The only issue with “recycled” tracks is when they actually look and feel “recycled”, like many of the classic tracks that made it into GT5. Kind of how like Route X is the new test track; updated in every way. Though PD doesn’t have to go THAT far with most of the classic tracks…

    • Jun. 21, 3:11pm

      I have to be honest when I say that I don’t see anything wrong with the tracks. They are all within the standards of the Gran Turismo.

      Also, I rather have more track packs than car packs. I remembered that what kept me glued to GT4 was the vast selection of tracks.

    • Jun. 21, 4:32pm
      Quakebass

      @Flagmo-T: It isn’t minor code edits. It’s a full HD Re-Scale. THAT’S what we’re paying for.

      “But if you already paid for GT4 – why the hell should we pay again for tracks that is coming straight from the game”

      There was a LOT of things we paid for in GT4 that we got in GT5… same with the previous games and their successors… so that argument isn’t quite valid. And it isn’t something DIRECTLY out of GT4 (as I had stated) – it’s an HD re-scale.

      We have Sarthe, Nurburgring, Spa, etc. in GT5… Do you not want them in GT6…?

      @HuskyGT: A prime example is Trial Mountain. It’s got some pretty crappy textures in some places; almost looks like PS2 in some places.

  34. Jun. 21, 2:37pm
    novcze

    ok, €5 isn’t much, but at this point I would like to know what is their plan, GT6 on PS3 or PS4? I don’t believe GT6 will be on PS3 but still, would be nice to know officially.

    PD really sucks at coming up with new ideas. First they recycle TRM from GT4, and now they just change around the logos on the Toyota 86 and call it DLC? Pathetic… Glad I got XBOX and Forza, because I’m tired of PD’s bs.

    • Jun. 21, 2:43pm
      symustafa1996

      Recycle? It’s already part of GT. It’s new to us. And the car comes at no extra cost. So I don’t see any problems here.

    • Jun. 21, 3:01pm
      Quakebass

      What’s that problem with bringing the classic tracks back…? Sure, there may be some other higher-priority classic tracks, but c’mon, FOUR variants isn’t that bad. And as symustafa1996 said, the Scion is free with the update…

    • Jun. 21, 3:05pm
      TokoTurismo

      Oh BOO HOO ZDUPH. BOO FREAKIN HOO. Honestly at least were getting Motegi with all FOUR of its layouts, and a FREE Scion FR-S which may also bring an update along. WTH is the problem!?

    • Jun. 21, 3:19pm
      ZDUPH

      Your arguement in invalid Toko boy. First off PD was too lazy to redesign TRM, so they imported it from GT4. Second Forza 4 HAS all four configurations of Twin Ring Motegi. At least Turn 10 took the time to revamp Twin Ring Motegi and make it bloom with life, while GT5’s version is dull and boring like all of the other tracks. So before you bitch at me with such blasphemy, maybe you ought to research. And really people? You’re SO excited for a reskinned GT86? Give me a break. Turn 10 gives us anywhere from 8-12 cars EVERY MONTH, while PD sits on their Asian asses and waits 4 MONTHS before release one clone of a car that’s already in the game, and a pixelated mess that PD calls Twin Ring Motegi. Thank you very much for taking time out of your wonderful lives to read this paragraph. This arguement is closed. Any further inaccurate remarks will be ignored. Have a wonderful day.

    • Jun. 21, 3:32pm
      HuskyGT

      @ ZDUPH, I have to slightly agree with you but it isn’t as terrible as you’re making it sound. In my humble opinion, TRM doesn’t look half bad. It looks pretty much like any other track in the game. And we all know that track details are not a GT5’s best features. I fired up my PS2 with GT4 and compared it with GT5 and trust me, it’s not the same. The best thing is that we are getting four more tracks. That’s four more ways to have fun in GT5.

      And the Scion, although it’s not as bad as with the multiple GTR’s, I agree it’s somewhat another pointless duplicate that after all this time waiting, it leaves a bitter sweet feeling. But you know what? It’s being added for free.

      If I had an XBOX and Forza, I would be playing it, but I don’t. You have to option to play Forza, so hey, enjoy it and leave GT players enjoy what they have.

    • Jun. 21, 6:03pm
      ZDUPH

      I respect your opinion Husky. I wasn’t in any way trying to anger GT5 fans. In fact I was in full support of the GT5 fans, believing that after 4 months of waiting, all they got was a reskin of the 86; you deserve better! At Toko, before you go and accuse others of being Forza fanboys maybe you ought to look deeper into what I and many others have to say. I’m angry FOR the fans, not AGAINST the fans. Is this how you like to be treated by a powerhouse like PD? So what if it’s free? All technicality aside, it’s not even new content! And I “hate anything PD makes?” I’m pretty sure that I had purchased every DLC pack that PD created for GT5, so don’t try that one with me. And while I realise that PD polished up Twin Ring Motegi from the port-over from GT4, it looks lifeless. I guess you don’t like Forza players who are in full support of it’s arch nemesis’ fanbase. Maybe you ought to take a vacation, because it seems, like many other GT5 players, that GT5 has taken full control of your life. I apologise for angering you in any way. Again I wasn’t trying to, but if you think i’m just another whiny Forza fanboy, go ahead, because in all honesty, I could care less.

    Oooooh no you don’t. Don’t start with the same car, many variation stuff like with the GT-Rs and Miatas especially. The FT-86, BRZ, and FR-S, topped off with the concept and a tuner concept of the same vehicle is okay, but please PD don’t go over board. Focus on newer vehicles out/coming out like the new Dodge Viper, Camaro ZL1, 2013 Mustang GT500 (with an independent rear mod available), 2013 M5, Lotus Exige, etc.

    A counter to the Forza Porsche pack with a serious RUF pack would be awesome.

      You didn’t pay for the Toyota GT86, and you’re not paying for this Scion FRS. Maybe the Scion was leaked due to testing for a new brand to be added into the premium dealerships. There could be more, but don’t expect much. You’re better off not hyping yourself if there is more.

    • Jun. 21, 3:08pm
      Quakebass

      ^ Yeah… I just realized that there isn’t a Scion section in the Premium dealer… I wonder if PD is going to just add a brand to the end, re-adjust the grid to make a perfect rectangle, or if there’s some other brands we don’t know about…

      I’m not going to get my hopes up, I’ll just end up disappointing myself.

      Why would you think it would be free? The car’s free, but the track makes sense to pay for, especially for 4 different variations. We only got to see one of them in GT Academy.

    id like to see some turbine cars included into gt5. two examples, the 1968 howmet tx turbine Lm car and the stp paxton turbine f1 car. id also like to see some other race cars such as the 1952 diesel cummins special, the awd cosworth garish f1 car and the six wheeled tyrell p34. those are just some suggestions for cars that could be cool to see in gt5 or maybe even gt6. But, im still happy that we are getting a new track and a free car

      Copying and pasting old comments isn’t going to grab PD’s attention. Creating a thread in the forums will likely have a beter chance of grabbing a read, but your best bet is to put this in the feedback section. I highly doubt that the news section is the first thing that Kaz/PD reads when he/they have the time to.

    I’m actually starting to think that NO developer has someone actually playing their X game or someone following what the players want.

    If they will include Subaru BRZ in some DLC, my hope in humanity will be lost forever. It’s like adding yet another Skyline or Impreza…

    • Jun. 21, 3:07pm

      Well to make a BRZ you can just paint it WR Mica Blue and it’s the same damn thing. It’ll have different lights and emblems but it’s practically the same car. Or if you want a tuned STI one just go on one of the replica tune threads.

    • Jun. 21, 3:13pm
      Quakebass

      Yeah, the BRZ is a bit different… I would’ve taken that over the Scion, but it’s free, and I’m glad for that. I just hope PD won’t start spamming us with duplicates of different cars.

    Ah, the usual “€5 isn’t anything, I can’t buy a cup of coffee for that blah blah blah”. It doesn’t matter how cheap it is, it’s about how much it’s worth. If PD added a cone DLC which covered all of the track in cones like the GT Academy and charged €2 would you tell us to stop moaning because it’s only €2, irrespective of whether cones are worth that?

    • Jun. 21, 2:47pm
      roflcoptor

      I’d buy it. It’s the only reason I go on the Top Gear track… to kill all the cones… KILL ALL THE CONES!!!

    • Jun. 21, 3:17pm
      Quakebass

      ^ I’d actually like a variant of of the TGTT with no cones… and having to pay for that just doesn’t make sense (neither does paying the proposed cone DLC…) – it’s too simple for PD to do, unless they did variations for EVERY track, and had weird “mazes” of sorts throughout certain tracks/sections…

      But I get your point. DLC should be pried based on how much work was put into the content.

    Please, Collectors Edition suffered the hardest by paying over $100 for the game…only to have half the “exclusive” cars given away for free. Then we get a slap in the face with the XL Edition selling for $39.99 which includes the Racing Car Pack, Car Pack 2, Course Pack, Racing Gear Pack, and Paint Pack.
    How about giving at least SOME good reasons why we bought the collectors edition? I certainly didn’t buy it just to get ripped off over time…

    • Jun. 21, 2:35pm
      Bobby-Vegas

      How we get a slap in the face? Did you buy it a week before GT5 XL came out, it don’t add up. Also, they never gave Chromeline cars away (which are exclusive dlc), unlike preorder/Signature Ed. Stealth NSX and GT-R. FYI, I have the Collector’s Edition too.

      Ok, really. It’s like complaining about paying more for a brand new TV than someone who buys the same TV for several hundred dollars/euros/pounds (whatever currency you use) less a year later due to price dropping. And what other PHYSICAL merchandise came with these special editions? GT5 XL is really just an efficient bundle for GT5, and makes it easier people to get an updated GT5 if they don’t have an internet connection. And it won’t fill your HD with update data; it’s all on the disk. That’s what happens when a game gets a lot of updates; you need to release new disks with the new versions.

  47. Jun. 21, 2:04pm

  48. Jun. 21, 2:03pm
    SkierPS3

    That’s kind of pricey for one track, but I’m still glad to see new cars and tracks being introduced. And assuming PD is still saving quite a few new tracks for GT6, then what we’re getting as DLC is only scratching the surface of what GT6 will be.

    • Jun. 21, 2:07pm

      I am hoping if they port all the tracks that at least textures would get updated. I hate Suzuka in gt5 because it is exactly like gt4’s not pixel out of place.

    • Jun. 21, 3:34pm
      Quakebass

      It isn’t so pricey for 4 different variations… Look at the pricing for Route X and Course Pack 1; Spa (standard and weather variants) and Kart Space I and II forwards and reverse: $5. 5 Euros = about $6.31, and consider the size of the track and it’s variants; One is a large oval. I think the price makes sense.

      Well, look at it this way; we wait a long time, hoping for great new content, and then we get content we don;t like very much. So then we have to wait AGAIN. THERE’S a reason to complain. But what annoys me here, is that this content (excluding TRM) is all free in an update… and we don’t know what else is coming in the update, or if there’ll be a car pack – everyone just assumes that this is all that’s coming out. I think there WILL be a car pack coming along side the track pack.

      …Wait… …Why…? We’re getting 3 extra variants that weren’t in GT Academy… The only thing that would make a REMOTE amount of sense would be a voucher for a small discount on the pack… Was GT Academy not free enough for you…? They already gave a free preview of the track in it… and what about all of the people who weren’t eligible for GT Academy? That isn’t fair at all. And that’s coming from someone who IS eligible for GT Academy.

    • Jun. 21, 4:43pm
      hobanator24

      I can see your point. People that were not eligible for GT Academy should get it for free with the rest of the people that participated. But those that had the ability to participate and didn’t should have to pay for it. Those that took the time to download and complete the GT Academy should get a free track.
      If there are any other dlc items like new cars or other tracks then everyone should have to pay full price.

    • Jun. 21, 7:06pm
      Quakebass

      ^ That would be too complex to decipher who’s who, and some people would likely get ripped off, while others could get the discounts unfairly. If anyone were to be discounted, I think it should be people who are in ineligible regions and hadn’t downloaded GT Academy through an eligible region account. These were people who were essentially cheated out of new GT content for a bit, and weren’t allowed to have a chance to become a real racing driver.

      But they are both the same car. I’m still happy there is DLC but were getting things that we already have. That’s all. :)

      2 version of the 86 is not that bad, even if they put in the BRZ will make it 3 variant is still not bad compared to how many S2000 EU US J version which are all the same in anyway.

      Well I guess we’re already used to it, because of the Skylines, Miatas, ect.
