The latest franchise in the series, GT Sport was long awaited by fans when Sony first teased it back in late 2016. The title has been under serious development until it was recently released last month. Being a core title for Sony to succeed in the upcoming years accompanying the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 4 Pro and PlayStation VR, the title without a doubt does impress a number of racing enthusiasts. And coupled with VR support, GT Sport becomes the ultimate treat for racing fans.
With the title crossing its 7th week since its initial launch, Sony has teased a few upcoming changes with Patch 1.06, a patch that would introduce Offline Play, New Cars and GT League where players would be able to tear down the road.
Offline Gameplay Support
What’s one of the most exciting features coming with GT Sport is that they are adding offline gameplay support to GT Sport. Players should also look forward to various additions to their liveries and should also expect some balancing to the gameplay of the title.
For now, Sony has confirmed that players could expect three cars coming to the title with Patch 1.06. These cars include Audi’s R18, the ISO Rivolta Zagato VGT, and the Shelby Cobra 427.
Sony has also touted and detailed that the December update would add 12 more cars into the title. What’s nice is that these cars would be a part of Sony’s free update schemes. Regarding what cars should you expect from the free update, here’s the list of cars.
- Mazda — RX-7 Spirit R Type A (FD)
- Nissan — Skyline GT-R V・spec II (R32)

However, the enthusiasm doesn’t end there. Sony has also confirmed that Polyphony Digital has 50 additional cars planned that would make their way into the game by March 2018.
Sony has also announced the addition of GT League to GT Sport with the upcoming free December update. Adopting the transition from previous title, GT League introduces a new way to challenge racers with single player racers under challenging situations.
Not only would GT League be able to push gamers to the edge of their seats for its challenging tasks, but would also allow players to enhance their gameplay as their progress through races.
Indeed we’re looking as some excellent additions into the game as we reach the end of 2017. Let’s hope the support for GT Sport goes beyond 2018.
