GTSports February update brings 12 more cars to the game.
Update goes live February 28th or earlier depending on your time zone.
More free content and no microtransactions.
Well yah, the game launched as a barebones skeleton. I'd sincerely hope the updates were free..
UK Launched day one as the best Sim racer online so not sure what you are complaining about. At least it didn't launch with MT or $50 season pass Watch how it sells 5-7 plus million by end of 2018 because racing fans know the PD will support it for a long time
It launched with half the content it should have been. They shouldnt have charged full price in the first place and release it as early access. And yet you defend it...
Well I guess the same could be said about Forza. Launched with mt and a season s pass. Launching car packs that they are charging for instead of free. I'd rather have the cars released for free than additional $$$
Sfv needed three paid season passes...
@video game- except how on Earth would you know what the game should have launched with? Do you work for the development team?
Don't be bitter. Get a PS4 and you can play it too :)
@Goldby I prefer having the cars free AT LAUNCH and not months after and call it a "free" update. Some game launch with enough content, but the season pass on Forza is BS yes. @_-EDMIX-_ Look at the last GT and you will see that this one is half the game
Sorry to ask but where is Forza 7 again? I don't see it anywhere.
@VideoGameLab I don’t think so. GT Sports isn’t Early Access game. It is polish and finished. And @UKRsoldja, PD said they will bring DLC for free including old and new. More importantly, PD made a promise with FIA.
I like that we didn’t get 500 cars shoved in our face on day 1. I feel like I appreciate all the cars so much more and then get excited to try out another new 10-15 each month for free. This method keeps the game fresh imo.
All hail Polyphony Digital! Smart move starting with a modest car list, only to spray new additions each month.
So you're saying that drip feeding people cars is a smarter move than launching the game with those cars already present? Wtf.
Dripping would be annoying, spraying is somewhat genius.
The game was also released in time to coincide with the championships going on otherwise it probably would've been a 2018 release.
Yep he actually thinks thats a good move :D
its a good move Videogamelab as the cars have more detail in them because of this extra time (Digital Foundry already proved this)
I bet you naysayers are the type who chug wine, aren't you?
They have way better support than others.
They need to considering the barren state it was released in
Can you even name what was missing despite the direction they said this game was focused on?
I don’t think so. They made deal a deal with FIA and they did it. GT Sports did deliver a promise online racing game. Sure, there are some fixes, but they do way better than Forza Motorsport 7. @UKRsoldja “truth” is only for your own benefit, nothing else.
Here the thing, online in Forza Motorsport 7 is disastrous to be honest. I watched SuperGT video and i’m not lying. The guy play both GT and Forza at the same time.
@VideoGameLab Oh trust me, PD won’t do the same thing like Turn10. Because right now, Turn10 have no clue what make Forza was special in first place since Forza Motorsport 4. That’s where you lack of understanding and you failed. If you think i’m lack of info, you would be wrong. Let me tell you this. When GT Sports was reveal, Kaz did said the game will focus online racing game of Esports and FIA partnership right from the beginning. GT Sports want to aim a clean and professional racing game and they did delivered. More Importantly, GT have GT academy where it teach you to become a professional racer. GT Academy have more ways to teach you than playing Gran Turismo. By test your physical and mentally, not just game.
Loving this game better than Microtransaction Forza
Well, GT launched with 160 and Forza with 700 Cars. Some games just launch complete.
and the GT sport has more detail in the vehicles than Forza does (digital foundry showed this off in one of their videos with a mazda (as it was a convertible and it was easier to get into the interior for photmode) GT sport also has a more comprehensive online match set up than Forza, taking not only lap times into account for matchmaking through qualifying laps, but also rates drivers based on their lap times and driving styles, meaning your punished if you are purposely crashing into someone, Forza on the other hand encourages it with their latest video about their tournament.
So its much more an esport? How come they have no price money? Forza is a complete package with ACTUAL SP content and a lot of that. Sure some details you wont ever see are better when your car is standing and you zoom in, but is it worth the lack of 540 cars?
Copy and paste from Forza 6.
Copy Paste, dont tell PD about that one or they will bring back PS2 models, again.
@Videogamelab the official seasons will finish with championships which have ceremony and prize money. as for your comment about 540 other cars. Gran turismo is about racing, not collecting cars. you can only use one car at a time and will most likely never use half of the 700+ vehicles in Forza. just like half the vehicles in GTS i have driven less than 10 kms. you can talk about a complete package for Forza when it isn't promoting aggressive and dangerous driving in its commercials. you can talk about complete package when drivers are being rated based on their driving style instead of just the performance of their vehicle.
Looks like you will damage control everything. Maybe Last of Us 2 isnt about the gameplay, they should just release a movie right`?
Really looking forward to this update, enjoying all the cars so far, keep up the good work PD.
Yess finally some news on this .. so glad they are sticking with this routine of puting out updates with free content every month ! I also hope that GT Legue will get updated with more events and that more tracks will be added just as last time because GT Sport needs more tracks and classic GT tracks.
I think they will bring back the old tracks and old cars alongside new things. It gonna take time, but don’t worry. PD will have update in every months.
I hope you are right man.. free content every month sounds awesome
Let's see what I can guess, from top left to bottom right: Alpine A110 Lamborghini Aventador Subaru WRX STi (current gen) Toyota Supra Mk3 Toyota GT86/Subaru BRZ (modified) De Tomaso Pantera Audi R8 (first gen) This is a tough one, Maybe Ford Mustang Mach 1 Toyota MR2 Mk2 Alpine A110 2018 (first time appearing in a game) Toughest one here, front profile looks like a 60s Mustang, but the lighting makes it look like a convertable Light Car Company Rocket
Bottom right is the Lotus 97T not the Rocket car, then the Subaru BRZ is a drift car and then there’s the other Subaru witch is the Isle of Man TT car.
I was thinking of one of the Black Beauty Lotus F1s, but I didn't look up the 97T. You're right, but the LCC Rocket looks very much like that silhouette, although the nose doesn't dip as much, and I didn't notice the wing in the back. The Rocket even appeared in previous games.
WOuld love to see a 1993 Honda Prelude VTEC.
There’s also the sidepods in the silhouette witch as we both know the Rocket doesn’t have.
Why are we using Twitter as a source, wth is this?
a post directly from Kaz
It's not the first time twitter has been used as a source. Why would it be a problem now?
I've been trying to beat the Nurburgring Circuit Experience full lap in under 6:57?? I've been trying for over a week and the closest i've gotten was 6:58. I think its time for me to get a steering wheel.
Its hard but you can do it without a steering wheel. Ive done everything 100% gold with a controller
I f**king love this game and play it daily. GT Sport and Monster Hunter World are the only games I’ve played in the last month.
Cool! I hope they add some 90s touring cars and the BTCC tracks, driving-wise it's the best racer I've played. Getting to SR S is amazing, no matter what your DR is.
I never bought it because it was to online focused.
Another Sony exclusive just getting better and better.
I still haven't been able to put this game down since launch, in part because of all the new content it keeps getting.
Free cars are great and all, but I'd REALLY like to get a lot more single player races with more tracks added.
for all we know they may end up doing that because of the cars they are adding. i know at least for the Ferrari cup on campaign it wasn't out at launch cuz they wanted more models available. we may also get a specialized cup like the raptor survival cup.
I like all the comments up here about how Forza is a more complete game due to a higher car count. Since when does that count as a complete game? Back when GT5 came out and had the higher car count, people said it didn’t make up for its other flaws. Funny how haters flip flop when it’s convenient for them. GT Sport and Forza 7 are both great games. Stop the bitchin’
De Tomaso Pantera !! Here's hoping.
The update goes live tomorrow 28th or tonight depending on were you live.
