Despite this rather small update compared to previous months, we really have to hand it to Polyphony Digital for slowly growing Gran Turismo Sport over the past couple years. What started out as a seemingly lacking game in terms of content (especially compared to previous titles) now has a curated roster of cars that, while not exactly sprawling in number, still has something for everyone. And for this month’s update, they build upon this theme by adding only 5 cars into the game.
When we mean ‘something for everyone’, we mean Polyphony Digital really has all the bases covered. For the old timers who yearn for the pinnacle of classic racers, the Jaguar D-Type is now available albeit at a rather hefty sum. Rare cars deserve large price tags even in-game, afterall.
For those that think "There Is No Substitute", Stuttgart’s lineup has now been augmented with the original Porsche 911 Turbo (930). Infamously known as the first of the ‘Widowmaker’ 911s, the 930 Turbo will certainly take a bit of getting used to when handling it in-game.
Fans of Japanese imports will be glad to know that the Honda Civic Type R (EK9) finally makes its way onto GT Sport; We can only imagine the creative racing liveries people will start making for the legendary hot hatch. Then again, one can never go wrong with Championship White.
Folks that are inclined towards the racing side of things will be glad to know that the Mazda MX-5/Eunos Roadster Touring Car is now available. This is the first among a number of ‘Touring Car’ versions reimagined by Gran Turismo in previous games to enter GT Sport.
And lastly, the Honda Sports 800 has also been added perhaps more as a history lesson for the budding Honda enthusiast.
Apart from the 5 cars, the GT League within the campaign mode gets a few more additional races including World Hatchback Championship: Rounds 4 and 5, Nostalgic 1979: Rounds 4 and 5, and X2019 Competition Endurance Series: Round 2. The Road Track – A layout of the fictional Sardegna circuit also becomes available in Circuit Experience mode.
A small but sweet update nonetheless, and we have no complaints so long as Polyphony Digital keeps the content coming.
