After a surprise announcement yesterday, Polyphony Digital has pushed out the latest update for Gran Turismo Sport. Hello, version 1.12.
In the world of GT Sport, this ranks as one of the smaller updates, at just over 100MB. Players won’t find any new content here; instead, Polyphony has made detail changes under the hood.
Physics Engine Changes
According to the patch notes, players can expect another revision to the traction control system aimed at improving handling. Polyphony doesn’t go into detail on how exactly that works, so some time behind the wheel should help.
The team has also tweaked a handful of cars’ stability. The goal is to improve mid-corner handling, though no further details are given here either. The full list is below:
- Alpine Vision Gran Turismo 2017
- Audi R18 (Audi Sport Team Joest) ’16
- Audi R18 TDI (Audi Sport Team Joest) ’11
- Audi R18 TDI (Le Mans 2011)
- Mazda LM55 Vision Gran Turismo (Gr.1)
- Peugeot 908 HDi FAP – Team Peugeot Total ’10
- Peugeot L750R Hybrid Vision Gran Turismo 2017
- Porsche 919 Hybrid (Porsche Team) ’16
- Toyota TS030 Hybrid ’12
- Toyota TS050 – Hybrid (Toyota Gazoo Racing) ’16
- Audi R8 LMS (Audi Sport Team WRT) ’15
- Citroën GT by Citroën Race Car (Gr.3)
- Ferrari 458 Italia GT3 ’13
- Honda NSX Gr.3
- Lamborghini Huracán GT3 ’15
- McLaren 650S GT3 ’15
- Alfa Romeo 4C Gr.4
- Porsche Cayman GT4 Clubsport ’16
In addition to the physics-based improvements above, Polyphony lists two major gameplay fixes:
Fixed an issue wherein the game became unplayable if the cancel button was pressed before a ‘Search’ result was displayed on [Discover]
Fixed an issue wherein switching to a car with custom livery from [Home ] > [Garage] resulted in the “Loading” screen being continuously displayed
Players expecting new content a la the 1.11 update — even though there was no hint of it — will be disappointed. However, it’s still early February, and the previous big updates have always come near the tail-end of their respective months. We imagine new content will drop in a few weeks’ time, especially as series creator Kazunori Yamauchi has stated Sport will gain 50 cars by the end of March.
As ever, keep an eye on our GT Sport community forums for any undocumented changes that pop up in version 1.12!
