You would think that since the launch of the game in October 2017 that the developers, Polyphony Digital, would have taken there foot off the gas a long time ago. Instead they’ve moved up another gear and here we are well over a year later with more updates.
The content they make available would generally be paid for elsewhere or part of sneaky pre-order campaigns. However, month in and month out we keep receiving these generous updates, which in turn means that the GT Sport that launched and the GT Sport today are two very different games. At launch there wasn’t even a GT League (similar to the campaign of old), but look at it today and its filled with content. Now you’re about to get even more for a whopping FREE-hundred Rand.
First up is the return of the oval Special Stage Route X. Simple, yes, but it’s a great place to test out the speed of your vehicles.
Special Stage Route X: Total Length, 30,283m. Elevation Change, 65m. Number of corners, 2. Longest Straight, 120000m
The Special Stage Route X, a 30km-long oval track used for licence tests and high-speed races of past editions of Gran Turismo, has come back. With a simple layout consisting of two 12-km straights and two banked corners, it makes for an ideal place to enjoy super high-speed battles and perfect the art of drafting.
These are the cars you’ll get to purchase and drive:
- Porsche 356 A/1500 GS GT Carrera Speedster ’56 (N100)
- Aston Martin DB3S CN.1 ’53 (Gr.X)
