Gran Turismo 7 Update 1.33 is Now Available, Addresses Toyota Esports Bug

The latest update for Gran Turismo 7 is now available and, as expected, it’s a relatively compact one designed to address minor bugs.

It comes in at just 356MB on PlayStation 5, and naturally that small size means there’s not a huge amount going on. In fact it’s only intended to address one issue, according to the official patch notes, which centers on one of the game’s esports championships.

The issue relates to points scored in the first round of the Toyota Gazoo Racing GT Cup championship, which ran on Sunday April 30 and consisted of a race at Fuji International Speedway in the famous AE86 twin cars of the Toyota Sprinter Trueno and Corolla Levin.

Many players on the GTPlanet forums noted that, rather than appearing immediately after the races concluded, the points they’d scored for their efforts weren’t showing either in-game or on the official website scoreboard.

Polyphony Digital later posted a statement that this was an issue that would be fixed in the next update, with points being retroactively displayed correctly from Round 2 — which takes place on Sunday May 14, with a race involving the Toyota GR Yaris at the Sardegna Road Track B.

At present we’re not aware of anything else changing with the update, with the Known Issues posted on the official game website and some of the bugs noted by the community — including the permanently orange door mirror glass on the new Mercedes-AMG GT3 Evo and the curious eight-month absence of the Ford Roadster from the Legends Cars dealer — still present.

It’s unusual, though not unprecedented, for PD to post a game update to address a single, non-urgent issue, though it clearly felt that something affecting one of its flagship esports series should be amended sooner rather later.

With content updates arriving more-or-less regularly at the end of each month, players waiting for new cars or tracks to play with will likely have to wait another couple of weeks.
