One of my fondest memories of the Gran Turismo series is the single-player Cup races you had to participate in in order to progress the game. It generally saw you starting at the bottom with a second-hand piece of crap, driving in the Sunday Cup and working your way through the ranks to a GT beast in the endurance races. It is what GT was all about, and it is probably the biggest let down of the recently released Gran Turismo Sport.
Well, as it turns out, the developers behind the game, Polyphony Digital, heard our pleas and will be adding a massive update in December, which will bring in exactly what we’ve been asking for in GT Sport. It is a single-player, offline mode that they’re calling GT League, and will feature solo tournaments and endurance races, according to the PlayStation Blog:
Launching as part of our free December update, we’ll be introducing a brand new single-player mode called the “GT League”. Based on the old “GT mode” of previous titles, players can now look forward to racing through a series of cup competitions from beginner to pro levels, and and even partake in endurance races!
This is great news for those who might have had some reservations about the game, but have been looking to scratch that pure Gran Turismo itch. There’s more content in coming for the game, so it might be worth checking out.
