Polyphony Digital has just revealed more details on the next update for GT Sport. The January update won’t only feature 10 returning cars, but a familiar track in the shape of Monza, three new layouts of Maggiore, and more.
An in-game message about server maintenance arrived earlier today (scheduled for January 26, 0400–0600 UTC), confirming the 1.11 update. The announcement comes only days after series creator Kazunori Yamauchi first teased new content coming to GT Sport this week.
You can check out the new trailer below:
New Cars You Say?
Yes sir (or ma’am). Polyphony Digital has promised that the game will receive 50 cars between launch and March 2018. With 15 cars already arriving in 2017 (via the 1.09 and 1.06 patches), the latest collection puts PD at the halfway mark.
The full lineup in the 1.11 update is as follows:
- 2002 Dodge Viper GTS Coupe (N500)
- 1967 Ferrari 330 P4 (Gr.X)
- 1976 Ferrari 512BB (N400)
- 2006 Ford GT (N600)
- 1966 Jaguar XJ13 (Gr.X)
- 2000 Lamborghini Diablo GT (N600)
- 1994 McLaren F1 (N600)
- 1967 Toyota 2000GT (N200)
- 2014 Toyota FT-1 (N500)
- 1997 Toyota Supra RZ (N300)
Like most of last month’s ten-car holiday gift, this pack represents cars from Gran Turismo 6. Arguably the biggest surprise is the fourth-generation Toyota Supra, however. The Supra rather infamously missed out on the Premium treatment in the PS3 era, and remains the second-most requested car on our Suggestions Forum.
You can check out some beauty shots of the new cars down at the bottom of this post.
The third-oldest racing track in the world returns to the Gran Turismo series. Monza made its debut in the GT5, and has remained a highly requested track ever since the first announcement of GT Sport. The Italian circuit is famous for its high speeds, and is a mainstay in the motorsport world to this day.
It arrives in GT Sport with two layouts; with and without chicanes.
More Layouts for Lago Maggiore
For a significant portion of our community, Maggiore has been one of the breakout stars of the original track roster in GT Sport. Polyphony is expanding the fictional circuit’s appeal by offering three new layouts (for a total of six variations, including reverse).
Up first is the “Center” version. At just over one mile long, it’s one of the shortest tracks in the game. It still includes the main straight, so we’re curious to see what makes up the rest of the loop.
The “East” layout is a more typical size, at 2.23 miles. As you’d expect given the name, it connects Maggiore’s front straight with the east portion of the track. Ditto the “West” layout, which is 2.55 miles long.
Four More GT League Events
The single-player campaign mode introduced last month will receive an additional dozen races as well. The details are below:
- Raptor Survival (Beginner League – 3 Races)
- J-Sport Meeting (Amateur League – 3 Races)
- La Festa Cavallino (Professional League – 3 Races)
- Gr.3 Endurance Series (Endurance Leage – 3 Races)
We’ll have to get some seat time with the new events to see if they outperform any of our existing methods of quickly earning credits and XP in GT Sport.
Polyphony Digital has stated that “various features, improvements, and fixes” will arrive alongside the content above. The maintenance period is set for January 26, 0400–0600 UTC. Keep an eye on GTPlanet and our GT Sport forums for more info as it’s uncovered.
