Another Update is Incoming for GT Sport This Week

Gran Turismo Sport 225 August 6, 2018 by

We’re still absorbing all of the content and changes in the July update to GT Sport, but already there’s another on its way.

An in-game notification reveals the existence of the new update. It’s due to be with us following a short maintenance period on Tuesday morning. The announcement reads:

At the following time, we will perform maintenance on the ‘Gran Turismo Sport’ servers. A new game update will also be available after the maintenance. Please note that during this time the online services, including [Sport Mode], will not be available.
 
[Day & Time]
7 August, 2018, 04:00 – 06:00 UTC
 
* The above time is subject to change.
 
We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause and thank you for your understanding.

There’s no patch notes at this time, but it seems unlikely that there will be any more content, or that this update will be a weighty one. The fact this update comes so soon after the last suggests that it’s intended to fix bugs introduced in v1.23.

GTPlanet users have noticed issues with the Mercedes-AMG F1 W08, particularly when it comes to braking. Others report some problems with low quality decals in the game’s livery editor.

The timing of the update is also of note. It comes the day before the final season of FIA Online Championship qualifiers. This may mean the update will tweak some aspect of the handling or tire model, or it may be connected to the fact that one event involves the W08, as above.

As always, GT Sport’s online functions will not be available from the moment the maintenance starts until you install the update. This includes saving the game, so be sure to perform a manual save well ahead of time.
