GT Sport’s Next Update Arrives This Week, Adds New Wangan Route and McLaren P1 GTR

Gran Turismo Sport 1247 December 4, 2018 by

The next content update for GT Sport is almost upon us. It’ll arrive in the early hours of Wednesday, December 5 (at least in the UTC time zone) and bring a whole boatload of new content.

Polyphony Digital already revealed some of the new bits during the FIA-Certified GT Sport Nations Cup Final stream from Monaco last month. One lucky driver there — Japan’s Shogo Yoshida — got to drive this update’s new Ferrari F50 on the new Tokyo Expressway South circuit. We’ve also seen the new track in full, as driven by European champion Mikail Hizal. There’s also a reverse variant, with a different layout.

Of course, with a special game build for the event that incorporated the update, some couldn’t resist a poke through the garage for other cars. In addition to the F50, GTPlanet’s also spotted the McLaren P1 GTR, Datsun 240Z “Fugu Z” by Sung Kang, BMW M3 (E92) Coupe, and the Chevrolet C2 Corvette. Meanwhile, an update to the PSN Store also revealed the Pontiac Firebird Trans-Am ’78 and Tesla Motors Model S Signature Performance ’12.

Sung Kang’s Datsun 240Z is a SEMA GT Award winner from 2015, and an appropriate car to twin with the Tokyo Expressway, given the actor’s involvement in the third Fast and Furious film.

Sony will deliver the update following Wednesday’s maintenance period. The official announcement reads as follows:

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]
December 5th, 2018: 04:00 – 08:00 UTC
* The above time is subject to change.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and thank you for your understanding.

As usual, the online services of GT Sport will be unavailable during the maintenance period and then until you update the game. This includes the game save function, so be sure to save manually well ahead of the maintenance window.
