Polyphony Digital is renowned for the polish it brings to the GT series. The little touches that make the game so unique are often praised and for GT Sport, it’s no different. When players log into the game on their birthday, they will be gifted a new car for their garage.
GTPlanet user breyzipp booted up the game on his birthday and was greeted with a prize car. The reveal of the present is also accompanied by a flash of fireworks, just for that classic PD flourish. It’s not a major feature but it is the type of personal touch that recent GT titles have featured quite a bit.
Birthday prizes appeared in both Gran Turismo 5 and 6. Given this track record the gift may have been expected but it’s still a nice surprise considering Sport‘s tone-shift. It shows that although Polyphony has moved the series in a new direction, it still likes to keep the personality intact.
The return of prize cars also make us curious to see if seasonal menu music will return. The PS3-era titles featured jazzed up renditions of classics like Jingle Bells and Silent Night during December. Even Kris Kringle showed up at one point.
We won’t have to wait long to find out, but perhaps this birthday celebration hints at further special events being recognized in-game.
As always, stay up-to-date with the latest findings in the GT Sport sub-forum. Our committed community finds and shares these types of reveals by the day. With the game still in it’s infancy, there’s sure to be more neat easter eggs to come.
