GT5 Spec 2.0 Coming in October, DLC to Follow

The GT community has been eagerly awaiting news of the next significant update following last month’s announcement hinting at new content and features for us this fall. According to a very rare English-language tweet from Kazunori Yamauchi this morning, that new content and features will be a “Spec 2.0” update to the game in October and downloadable content shortly after:

GT fans, thanks for waiting… The GT5 Spec 2.0 update is coming the 3rd week of October, with DLC following a week later.

There is no news yet for fans regarding exactly what the Spec 2.0 update will bring nor the nature of – or the price of – the DLC to follow, but GTPlanet will report this information when it is revealed…

    If they put in a clutch button feature when driving manual, so that u actually have to hit the clutch button to switch gears, then forza will lose my interest. Also the ability to switch drivetrains and swap out engines.eatures that I think forsaking is , I’m going to get oseis update gardless but sstill that would be a great feature to ahen shifting gears, then forzawiol

    Im afraid this update is too late for me. The fact that GT5 still doesn’t have leaderboards like GT5P is why I returned back to FM3. Now i’ve played the demo I have no reason to return to GT5. Even the FM4 demo has 3 leaderboards! Sadly my brand new G25/Wheelstand Pro is collecting dust in my bedroom.

      I don`t know if GT or Forza is more realistic, never driven a 458 Italia (yet), but Forza in simulation steering mode is more challenging than GT.
      I tried the Italia in both games, it was pretty easy in GT5, but in Forza 4 i had to fight to keep the car going straight. I feel like i really drive a strong and fast car.

    If you’re skeptical about the obvious differences in frame rate, just go to your local Best Buy and try out the exclusive Forza 4 demo that just launched. No other stores have it and you can get a true feel for the realism of this racer. Turn off all assists and be amazed at how unforgiving the car’s behavior is. Truly the smoothest graphical experience in a racing game I have yet to see.

    From my posts you all know how much I love GT, and I always urge PD to not to compare it with forza but with LFS. One thing though I am envious of Forza and that is the framerate! Forza 1 aside, 2,3 and from the looks of it 4, have 60 fps gameplay. If you watch the videos u immediately understand how crucial framerate is : it is unacceptable to go 200kph+ and think u are doing about 100. That’s what happens with Gt5, and that eventually affects your brakepoints, the way u perceive the world in game and it generally leaves the wrong impressions as far as speed is concerned. Please please fix the framerate, no matter if you have to sacrifice some gfx. Fps and physics come first, gfx shouldn’t even come 2nd in my opinion!

    1. Jason3

      If there’s something good in GT5 that’s the framerate, not always 60fps in chaotic situations byt it’s a good one. Maybe your PS3 is old or something, I didn’t experienced any issue (yes, using a wheel). Instead I would like an option to turn off the annoying camera tilting.

    My wishlist:

    • Better menu layout (not a big fan of the current one)
    • GT4-Like UCD (late 80s, early 90s, you know what I mean)
    • More Race Mods
    • More Premium cars or more Standard cars to Premium
    • New features for GT Auto (basic livery editor – rims on standard cars etc..)
    • Better tuning options (kinda like Forza Motorsport)
    • Faster loading screens
    • Ability of choosing the weather and the time in practice mode
    • Better replay controls (rewind, slow-mo, etc…)
    • New races and game modes (Top Gear-like games like they are doing on Forza Motorsport 4)
    • Races for each car manufacturer like previous GT games
    • More prizes for events and level ups
    • Paint shop where you can buy all the available paint chips, including mattes and chromes

    Substantial upgrades to Tuning and GT Auto

    I think that you can download every car apart for 0,79ct or a stealth or chrome pack for 5,-
    Why i think that it will be the stealths etc.?
    Because PD already gave it away as “DLC” and starts giving it away at christmas and facebookgames…

    Hope when they roll this thing out they’ve got got sufficient head room on their servers. There would be what, 6 million plus titles in the public domain now world wide. Can their servers now hold 2 million concurrent connections if they get a spike of renewed interest ? The smart thing to do would be to roll the update out by region. Remember how bad connection issues where in Nov/Dec last year ? Sure they’ve added more capacity since then, just hope the ol’ GT5 data centre’s got some extra redundancy built-in for this one :)

      This is more like it, more tracks are the most important i think, all the classics especially but we will deffo get more cars, hopefully premium countach, kaz did say standard to premium would be classic heavy which is great news, i would’nt be suprised if we had a bunch of new premiums though, GT was always current in terms of car content and has fallen behind in that respect so i can see Kaz putting that right.

    HOLY MOTHER OF THE UPDATES!!!O_O I smell more premiums if not upgraded from standards, i don´t think they are going to change the sounds of the engines (sadly), one or 2 tracks (who knows but with SPA i´m done :D), and the DLC in my opinion or…will be the stealth and the chrome line edition cars (from the Signature Edition that i already have ;P) or no more than 8 cars as usually happens on every game (my possible choices: Ferrari FF the newest as they did with the California, they uploaded a video with the Toyota FT86 spec II, and maybe if we are lucky enough some old BMW as E36 DTM,Mercedes Benz Stirling moss, the new Honda HSV010 for super GT500 (or even more lucky with the super GT300 Toyota Corolla Axio and Subaru Legacy B4, both beautiful cars no doubt.

    I give PD kudos for doing this almost a year later. Yes, the game got really repetitive, but think of other companies that release DLC. Forza 3 had like 20 DLCs almost after a year of the game coming out? And also you have seen the DLC for Cod? My god people getting ripped off. Atleast PD waited a year, before releasing one DLC.

      Don´t we all want cars in premium form… Not saying that´s impossible, but for that, PD needs to get rid of the repetitions to free some menory in the game, and leave a healthy 600 to 700 car list with no duplicates. I´m more into muscle cars and European sports cars, but I have nothing against Japanease cars. I´m pretty sure we can live with only one or two skylines of each gen, and plataform(still a lot of skylines).

      Shadows… other than them being all pixelated, and shakey I don´t even notice it. Even playing at 1080p

      More tracks with weather and day/night cicle. I have to give you two thumbs up for that :D

      Enviroments. Hmm… unless you stop by the road, you won´t notice how flat they are. That would be unnecessary memory usage.

      More tracks from the Track Editor. More templates would be nice. The current ones look all the same. More options for it would be welcomed too.

      Etc. Use the correct sound samples for some cars that have an incorrect engine sound. Fix the Premiums that looks like they were made in one day, by someone who has no idea of what he´s doing *cough* bmw m5 *cough* Fix some minor incorrect details on some cars.

    My guess is that Spec 2.0 will be free of charge and bring a big whack of what would constitute “fixing a broken game” – bug fixes, physics fixes, tweaks here and there, a smattering of new cars and tracks – very much in the vein of what the “Spec updates” to GT5P brought. And definitely worth “free” – that is, taking an opportunity to significantly fix what was broken. Much more “1.2” than “1.14” – maybe even “2.0”

    “DLC”, on the other hand, will be paid-for, will probably not be cheap, and will bring some of the “most-wished-for” things that have been dreamt of for GT5. Premium supercars, whole new track packages, maybe even new game modes altogether (C-Spec??? Who knows?)

    And it is entirely business. I’m sure these “leaks” we’ve had since GT5 released (track logos, C-Spec, etc) have been ready for a while but Sony delayed PD releasing it until Forza came out. Simple economics. GT is getting free press just now as the larger gaming world feels the need to compare the current champ (GT5) to the new contender (Forza 4) – perfect time for Sony/PD to show their hand.

    (And please don’t start on PC sims. This is just about mega-million-selling console simracing!)

    And ultimately, I am very excited and happy by it all :)

      Oh it will be free! I know that. It makes a lot of sense. Spec II and III for GT5P was free. I feel like the change is going to be just like that. A couple of cars here and there, maybe a couple of tracks, probably a change in the menus and stuff, changes in A-Spec and B-Spec (<== I really hope for this), and a lot of fixes.

      Oh, and I bet that at least one of the four new cars that are standard, is going to be upgrated as premium. It would be a crime to pay for that car to be premium, when other games have it with interior and all before GT5 was even released. And you know I´m talking about the Veyron.

    Great news. Timed to shore up votes for 2011 Golden Joystick Awards perhaps? Maybe. It’s more likely PD are simply working off their own program of work – don’t think 2.0 has got much to do with the release of the Forza 4. There’s a lot moving parts to get sorted, key thing is to ensure the release doesn’t break anything in the backend when they push to the live environment. That and getting the lawyers to sign off on any new licencing requirements (if required) is always painful and drawn out process.

      it’s pretty obvious it has to do with Forza but it feels more like Sony’s doing than PD’s…they said DLC was coming long time ago and i guess with the release date of Forza 4 they decided to hold off and continue to work on improvements until around this time..it’s just business

      Definitely all about the biz recca, agree. Bet there’s regular forum with SCE corporate operatives around sales numbers and their strategy. I’m sure they have a dedicated team doing competitor analysis not to mention the traffic and game-play analytics on their own servers. Still don’t think this would over ride the EP’s final call on when to go live – which is not say there wouldn’t be some high level pressure to publish yesterday, it never lets up! ;)

      I dont really think there will be any ‘new cars’ just standerd to premium conversions that will be DLC. this is because the cars are what takes the time = money to create and not everyone wants to drive in car. so if you want to you can pay for it.

      Reverse the don’ts and we might come close. There is nothing wrong with the physics unless you drive around at 1 mph or so and you can’t do a STANDING burnout. That’s all I would like to see changed on the physics.
      Car updates would be nice though and a paint shop, but that’s not a priority for most of us I think.

    Lets be brutally honest here guys, this ‘Spec II’ is just not going to be anything close to anything that you guys are imagining it to be and heres why:

    1 – Polyphony tries to do way too much infact it does more that it can actually handle, the fact that it doesn’t outsource vehicle renderings to other companies and the fact that GT5 is still an unfinished game proves this.

    2 – Polyphony’s visuals aren’t as impressive as it likes to think it is, ever Driver San Francisco’s vehicle renders look better! And that processes 50+ vehicles on screen! (go on the highway and block one side using a bus and you’ll see) and also I’ve seen ultra close-ups on premium models compared to Forza 4… Forza 4 out does GT5 guys, on all areas in graphics.

    3 – Several manufacturers that at in GT5 are now solely exclusive to either Forza 4 or EA, as well as all LMP and GT2 cars, GT1 cars are exclusive to EA and NASCAR is now also exclusive to EA.

    4 – Polyphony are too dumb to realise that they can get around the F1 licensing issues by putting in older cars under the Formula Euroboss banner.

    Regarding what will actually be in the DLC and Spec II lets be even more brutally honest:

    1 – If it does have any new cars, it will only be a maximum of 20, even then its likely to be idiotic shopping runarounds or pointless cars like the Kubbelwagen.

    2 – Other than tracks already mentioned or idiotically leaked by drinks companies there won’t be any new tracks.

    3 – DLC is most likely to be limited to Japanese cars only, so don’t expect any hypercars or new racers, this is POLYPHONY we’re talking about.

    4 – This is a kneejerk to Forza 4, its purely out of panic and it won’t do anything special at all.

      Dear god seriously..you think Driver San Francisco’s renders look better? they’re not even close, not to mention the dimensions of the car are way off their real-life counterpart.

      Oh wow ultra high res. of Forza photomode screen shots..not going to lie, it looks incredible but their ingame model is nowhere close to that. have you seen the recent gameplay, even Forza fans are complaining about it, did you see the amount of track glare, it is blinding. And why do they always release their best looking trailer first, making it look oh so glorious, release a couple more, and finally the actual gameplay which looks nothing like what people were expecting..they’re all smoke and mirrors, that’s how they’ve always operated…And yes i know GT’s photomode cars aren’t the same as the actual ingame model but the contrast isn’t as big as forza’s photomode to ingame.

      I doubt they’re panicking, but it is giving them something to think about, and at least their not so arrogant as to do nothing, and just sit back as if nothing’s going to happen. It would be a foolish move to do nothing and see what happens, so good on them for putting up a fight. Although all that licensing is a bit of an issue though..I’ll be somewhat surprised if F4 even outsells GT5p, plus NFS are coming out with two more games soon, the run looks fun so there’s a lot of competition there

    One major negative for GT5 is that it doesn’t provide a 400m/1000m/max speed mode. I probably spent a full 1/3 of my time in previous GT games tuning and comparing cars in these areas, pushing them to their fastest possible run by the millisecond.

    Also, it doesn’t maintain a leaderboard for each car and track combo (which Prologue offered). I loved to see where I stacked up that way (although I can see it would be a lot more onerous given the significantly larger car count).

    Also, please offer wheel changes for non-Premium cars.

    Tell you what PD. I will give you credit for caring about the online component of this game at all if you consider matchmaking or doing anything to make the online experience better. I would not complain about the offline game. Though flawed of course, it has lots of stuff to sink your teeth into and I consider it good value for your money. So much is missing online though, which is the only reason you play the game after a while. How about posting race stats for fastest laps, most passes, most contact, replays etc. People could look over these stats while actually allowing the rest of the field to finish and race to the end. How about a no contact mode that penalizes both people involved in contact, that might discourage it. So many things could be done to improve this game.

      Dreams come true in some cases. I hope you´re right. But as for new manufactures, I don´t think it will happen. They will probably just add a one or two new models to the already existing manufacturers. And as for some standards turning into premiums, I don´t think it will go further than just the R8 LM, the Jaguar XF, Lamborghini Countach and of course, the Veyron. Cars that were supposed to be premium since they are new.

      What I feel is going to change is the B-Spec and A-Spec mode, and I hope it does. Hopping that the game turns back to the old GT4 prize and proggression system.

    if i were them i would bring more current cars – say at least 20 or 10 most wanted. one to three tracks, part of them dlc, selected by the community. and finally a true top gear race track competition with times to beat in supercars!!!

    Dear PD,

    Please fix your mountain of glitches/improvements, including but not limited to:

    – Tweaking Performance Points (Go Kart at 513 PP, really?)
    – Buy Engine, Oil Changes and Aero from Tuning menu when racing online
    – Swap the front and rear suspension values, yes, they are backwards
    – Tweak the penalty system so if a car spins out in front of you, you don’t get the penalty
    – I suggest increasing the online race countdown timer to 50, automatically pit every car on the

    track when the countdown timer reaches 10 to avoid loooong black screen waits
    – Sync the online physics with offline physics
    – Fix the random, unable to buy tires for my car when racing online because the cursor skips over it automatically (not every car, but enough of them to notice)
    – Tweak/Lessen drafting
    – Give us multiple setting save slots when racing online, like in GT5P
    – GT5 Leaderboard addition
    – Ghost the cars that are being lapped (more consistency)
    – Drastically improve track shortcutting penalties (i.e. very beginning and very end of Trial Mountain, rally tracks too!), this is especially important for the next GT Academy
    – Re-disable the auto save when the game first loads up, you disable then, then later re-enable it again, wtf?
    – Remove the 1 Million Dollar trade limit
    – Remove the 1 trade per day limit
    – Bring back the superior GT4 replay system that shows HP,Weight, tires, (add parts installed, etc.) and if Skid Force was enabled
    – Or just drop Skid Force completely from the game!
    – Give me far more filters online racing lobby, like let me filter to just 500PP, just sports tires, just race cars, don’t show me X track, etc.
    – Save my previously used online lobby filter
    – Let me share my entire garage for one make races. However I tweak the car, is exactly what everyone else uses. Plus let them tweak their own suspension, aero settings individually
    – Or, just put every car in the ‘arcade’ garage for us to enjoy
    – Drastically increase the amount of money you win for playing onilne, similar to GT5P
    – Add each car in the game to the arcade mode list of cars (offline), or atleast let us choose cars we own to be available to use in Arcade Mode for hotlap sessions
    – Let me have complete control in creating a new course, rather than randomize point to point sections, let’s face it, all the tracks feel the same even though they are different
    – Bring back basically all the tracks from GT4 and other really popular tracks from previous versions (Sears Point, Apricot Hill, New York, Opera Paris, El Capitan, etc.)
    – Add more real-life tracks like Spa, Watkins Glenn, Brands Hatch, Catalunya, Donington. Basically every track that is in GTR2/iRacing
    – Give us brand new, never before seen in GT cars
    – Convert the most popular cars to Premium (Veyron at the very least!)
    – Add In-Race Saves for Endurance Races
    – Tweak/Improve Damage, add it for all cars, premium or not
    – Rolling starts instead of standing starts for each and every race, online or not
    – Add a few Drag Race tracks; 1/4 mile, 1/2 mile and full mile
    – TIP: For GT6, just give us the option of day racing, sunset racing or night racing for each track/online race
    – Finally, fix the vertically split ghost car effect

    Doing so will skyrocket the game to a 9.9+ rating and bring it back as a AAA title.

    I’m hoping for new cars & tracks. That’s a must in my opinion.

    In addition, I would pay almost any price if that Update/DLC would add racing content (championship mode, practice & qualifying sessions, flag rules, safety car, pit radio, different tyre wear for soft/medium/hard, etc…) to GT5.^^

    But, to be realistic, I think that will never happen.

    Too little too late, forzas big hurdle (the steering assistance) has been removed in 4 plus there is guaranteed dlc for at least 6 months, all cars have interiors ( it wouldnt have been too hard for polyphony to add a left and right hand drive generic cockpit ) the only way this would work for me is if the content is free and the feeling gets more like iracing instead of nfs shift, and they add lime rock park plus brands hatch….

    Hypothetical Question:

    What if you’re racing online and the host chooses to race on a track that was DLC… Do you need to buy the DLC too to race on that track?

    I’m not a huge online gamer apart from GT5 so I’m not sure how that all works. I noticed on Modnation: Racers that even though I never purchased any of the DLC, I was still able to take part in races on tracks that I didn’t purchase online, although just for a one time race.

    Anyhow, I hope that there are some new (quality/real) tracks added, would be sweet!

    Report
    1. pasigiri

      I think Modnation Racer is different in this case due to the fact that people can TOTALLY design a track. I think what happens is the tracks aren’t necessarily loaded as a track as a whole but as parts and pieces that were linked together. The game was designed ground up to assemble tracks. In GT5 the tracks are made as is (that’s why the replays are some of the best in racing games IMHO). Even in the track builder, it’s more of tweaking a few setting and some internal randomizer design the track based those settings. That’s why the replays aren’t as good on custom tracks in GT5.

      Well at least that’s my 2 cents. Sorry, but I’ve wondered about this too.

      If PD allowed GT5 to be in it’s current state any longer, I might have given Forza a try. Forza 4 looks like it’s going to be good, but there is just one serious hurdle that keeps me from checking it out; steering wheel support. I have a G37 wheel and LOVE IT!!! It works with GT5 and other PS3 games. It works with my PC. I also have the Wheel Stand Pro (wife got me that to keep me from attaching my wheel to furniture). Getting a new wheel, that’s proprietary sucks.

      *Cough* I bet you all that Forza 4 will be a huge disappointment, after all there is a reason why all the shinyness they have shown us has been from the Autovista mode, or photomode. So far they have only proven that they can create high resolution 3d models of cars, which frankly any university student on the subject of 3d modeling can do. They haven’t shown us what resolution the cars will have during actual races, my guess is rather low as they also think that the Xbox will be able to run races of 16 cars.

      @ Lil Ape

      Totally agree with you. But there is a slight confusion that most people make. There is a difference between sound effects and sound samples. GT5 has incredible sound effects (at least better than previous games), but Forza, and even NFS destroys it when it comes to sound samples. In Forza and NFS, a V8 sounds like a V8 no matter what. And it even gets more badass when you upgrade the exhaust. In GT5, you´re lucky if your favorite car sounds like the engine that has. And what makes my blood boil is that thing were you change the exhaust, and magically your car gets an engine swap. Like the example that you made with the Corvette… PD needs to get serious in this aspect and fix it once and for all. It´s been more than ten years with the same crap…

      Well the fact that it’s being called “DLC” and not just another update suggests that it will have a price-tag.

    The update is good news. But the DLC, I won’t pay a cent for it! I would like people to explain me why they like DLCs so much… people criticizing PD for not releasing a DLC? God, they kept releasing FREE updates! Do you guys love to waste money? The updates should be free. I already paid a lot for the game. But congratulations people, you got yourselves a DLC.

      I think people have been exited about DLC, because the percieved amount of content is expected to be more plentiful than just regular updates.

      I think people you are confused…..DLC does not imply you have to pay for it. It’s obvious the Spec 2.0 is a Gameplay upgrade, and DLC may apply to actual cars and tracks. I don’t see PD charging for cars or tracks simply because to split up the audience doesn’t make sense. For example if I only like 2 or 3 cars or 1 track, i’m not buying the DLC, and you sound like you wouldn’t buy it anyway.

      are you the kind of person that says GT5 doesnt have enough cars? open your daft ears, the need for speed franchise is lucky if it has 100 cars, let alone over 200 premium cars that are in GT5. and so-what if they arent premium, there are OVER 1000 CARS! tit

    Good news, but I’m not holding my breath for anything spectacular, although I’m open to being pleasantly surprised when it does come along.
    Re-doing the body lines of the standards would be a good starting point, and the multiple duplicate cars could be completely “premium’d” without much effort. It needs a major graphical overhaul from the predominantly GT4 based visual quality it was released with, let’s HOPE they see this as one of the key areas they completely failed us on.

      Don’t get your hopes up, Some People have been waiting for almost a Year now for proper G27 support. I should know, for I am One of them….

      Would be nice to have G27 support, but I think it would wreck sales of their Thrustmaster TM500RS me thinks, and am not sure that KAZ is ready to forgo any lost royalties on it just yet.

      But, lets pray that I’m wrong, and that after a year PD finally make GT5 a Game worth playing…

      An Ariel atom v8 fully tuned would be hell on wheels. But I want to see cars from UCD in dealerships by brand. Kind of like gt4 with the classic dealership. They need to put the aventador, 2012 GTR, and daily cars that alot of people own like mazdaspeed 3, suby wrx, and golf r. Forza is looking less and less interesting as gt5 continues to get updated

      Cause Ferrari’s ego is so big that they can’t stand their cars losing in the game like they do in real life.

      @sumbrownkid how about you use your brain for once and consider the fact that they had to get approval from Formula 1 to feature the cars, also, if other F1 cars from other teams were included in the race you would not be allowed to race the different cars from different teams against each other as that constitutes towards an F1 race, this is the same reason why BMW, Toyota, Mclaren, Mercedes and RedBull can’t feature their own F1 cars in the game.

      How about you use your brains, and see that Ferrari F1 is intellectual property belonging to Ferrari themselves and not to Bernie Ecclestone and Co.

      How about you work on your insults, and don’t assume I’m a Hamilton fan cause F1 is nothing special to me (LMP > F1).

      It’s probably not the chrome line cars, you don’t need a spec II update to make those available for everyone :P

      I honestly don’t understand this argument. You do realize that they made 2 games prior to GT5’s release, (GT5 Prologue and GT PSP). That comes to an average game release every two years.

      dude, PD’s team is small compared to other game companies and they make all their cars in-house…and I appreciate that PD don’t ask for us to pay for extra content when the bloody game hasn’t even been released yet

      Err looks like maths is your biggest fail sir. Gt5 prologue was released after gt4 there may have been a six year gap between 4 & 5 but prologue, which is still officially regocnised as a game was released in between and had two updates. 6 year gap my arse!!

      I’m getting my hopes up.

      Prologue Spec II increased the content of the game massively, nearly doubling the car count – and it was free! There is no telling what we’re getting, but having a jump as large as Spec II implies something major, very major.

      Forza 4 is suddenly looking much less interesting…

Tracks we need Sebring, Road America, Road Atlanta, Infineon, Silverstone, Circuit of the Americas, Estoril, Circuit Gilles Villenueve, Imola, Abhu Dhabi, and Bathurst Mount Panorama!!!!!! Ohhh and the Mclaren MP4/12C GT3 car!!!

      More real tracks, leaderboards, cars sorted by class for real racing. More rm models. Export replays to Quicktime or Mp4. Private league support, invite only lobby, publish race results. Fix the diffence in handling between on and offline.

      Having said all that, love the game how it is.

      Well, this is nice…obviously an effort to combat the Forza 4 release. However, after getting a special first look today at Forza 4 and trying out the exclusive demo, GT5’s gameplay really doesn’t even come close. I’ll check out the content, but Forza 4 appears to be a much superior game. Respect to PD for doing this, but after people get a chance to play the much more unforgiving and realistic gameplay of Forza 4, many may never go back.
