As we’re probably used to since Gran Turismo Sport launched last year, monthly updates keep the game fresh as new cars and one new circuit is introduced every month over the course of the year. With GT Sport celebrating its first birthday, the holiday update for the game comes with fewer vehicles and a new fictional circuit.
While there are currently only 7 cars in this December update for Gran Turismo Sport, Polyphony Digital made sure to concentrate towards making the update substantiable for players by making these seven cars as interesting as they can be. For starters, players will now be able to purchase the Ferrari F50 as well as the McLaren P1 GTR. The latter however will require from players a whopping 3.6 million credits – meaning you should have been playing regularly over the past year to enjoy it.
On the budget friendly side of things, players can enjoy driving old school muscle like the C2 Corvette Stingray and the ’78 Pontiac Trans Am. Should you want something more currently relevant, Tesla now joins the GT Sport roster with the Model S Signature Performance. Don't expect it to be a lively drive though, it's pretty quiet. JDM fanboys will be equally pleased to know that Sung Kang’s GReddy Fugu Z finally makes its entrance after being awarded the Gran Turismo Award back in SEMA 2015. Lastly, the E92 BMW M3 is thrown into the mix for more european variety.
The new circuit for this update is another fictional rendition of the Tokyo Expressway. Dubbed the Tokyo South Loop, this new course is a slightly wider, more high speed version of the first loop layout. With two directions spanning 5km for the clockwise route and 6.5 km for the counter-clockwise version, the new course makes for a perfect opportunity to live out those late night tokyo expressway runs.
As for events, events like the Beginner’s League Nissan GT-R Cup, Amateur League’s Real Circuit Tours, Professional League’s Mercedes AMG Grand Prix, and the Endurance League’s Gr. 3 events all get a total of seven new races. The holiday themed scapes locations also make their way back into the selection so players can spread the holiday cheer.
To top this update off, Circuit de Catalunya makes its way to Circuit Experience and there is now a new FIA Museum section under the international brands.
The current GT Sport update stands at a sizeable 4GB, so if you’ve yet to update your game you may as well do so now – it might take awhile.
