Gran Turismo Sport Gets A Proper Campaign
The big update for Gran Turismo Sport that many have been waiting for is here. The single player ‘GT League’ mode comes via today’s 1.09 update and is effectively the good old GT single player campaign many adore the series for.
Launching only back in October, the latest Gran Turismo game did appear to be suffering from a less than stellar response from fans of previous iterations. It’s online focus and bare bones ‘campaign’ saw players taking a ‘wait and see’ approach, resulting in substantial price drops, especially across Europe.
However, the tides turned when the news about the upcoming release of ‘GT League’ and more cars came out, and those fans who were on the fence, started to snap up copies. Series names such as ‘Sunday Cup’ and ‘Clubman Cup’ will be familiar to players of the games from before. It’s not too shabby either, as there is a decent amount of content here to start off with, and with a promise to add more over time it is sure to keep players’ attention in the future also.
Leagues do have a Driver Level requirement in order to enter and so racking up those wins will be important.
Twelve Brand New Cars!
A batch of twelve gloriously detailed cars from the continents of Europe, North America and Asia make their way in through this update too. Included amongst them are favourites like the: Nissan Skyline R32 and R34, Ferrari F40, Lamborghini Countach LP400, Chevrolet Corvette C3 Stingray Convertible, and even a Volkswagen Samba Bus!

New Track Layout
Even though it’s not a whole new environment, a demanding new layout comes in the form of the “Kyoto Driving Park + Miyabi”. As you can tell this is created by joining together the two tracks to make one super circuit.
And as if it wasn’t enough when heading the right way around the track, the reverse is an even bigger challenge and will be sure to test even the most hardened racer.
We have added the “Yamagiwa + Miyabi” layout, a 6.8km long track connecting the “Yamagiwa” and ”Miyabi” tracks of the Kyoto Driving Park. The connections add 2 hairpins to the track which increase the track’s level of technical difficulty.
Another notable addition that comes with the 1.09 update is the new “Season’s Greetings” group for Scapes which contains multiple settings to help players add some seasonal joy and festivities to their images.
