Update 1.26 will arrive later today at 10pm Pacific Time. Here’s the full statement from the PlayStation feed:
Vehicle sales are the absolute highlight of today’s announcement. It seems like selling cars should have been a core feature of this game, but somehow, it wasn’t available until this update.
For a series that capitalizes on its realism, it’s always been strange that grand tourer 7 it didn’t allow players to do this. It doesn’t necessarily interfere with the gameplay, which is solid. But it certainly has been frustrating, and quality of life features are more important in the long run.
The garage is going to be a lot more flexible now, so the new feature is really bringing a lot of fresh interest. Even when a show has a loyal fanbase, you can’t always fully trust your brand to retain them if you miss the basics.
The new cars will be Ford’s ’87 Cosworth, BMW’s ’18 Competition and Nissan’s S14 Silvia. grand tourer 7 continues to expand its vehicle catalog in unexpected ways. There are already plenty of fan favorites in the game, and many of the new additions look to models that could perform differently, and add a lot more replay value than some might expect.
The game is probably a bit underrated, even if its courses could use more variety. Michelin Raceway Road Atlanta will be added today which is beautiful and nicely themed. But it’s not the most exciting, in terms of setting.
