Polyphony Digital appears to have settled into its post-launch content progression plan Gran Turismo 7, as the team has continued somewhat slowly, albeit steadily, to fill out the game’s vehicle roster, progress balance, and other miscellaneous features. The latest in the long line of these content updates doesn’t break the mold, but will certainly be of interest to car collectors GT7.
Specifically, the team has just announced Gran Turismo 7 would receive its 1.17 update on June 23rd. While the highlight of GT7The June update of is certainly the introduction of the legendary 1998 Suzuki Escudo Pikes Peak Special, there is also a new track and three all-new menus for players to progress through in the Gran Turismo Cafe.
Update 1.17 is quite similar Gran Turismo‘s update 1.13 from April. With three new vehicles and a freshly added historic circuit, the update underscores the franchise’s commitment to racing culture. Notably the new cars are the aforementioned Pikes Peak Escudo, Suzuki’s new GT model of the Vision base car, and the 1932 Ford Roadster. As neat as the Vision and Roadster are, for a long time GT Players are probably most interested in Escudo since it used to be one of the old ones Gran Turismo the games ultimate crutch cars when modified properly.
As for the circuit, Watkins Glen in New York is included in update 1.17. “The Glen” is a dense, dynamic track with two distinct halves that push racers to the limit. While the first half of the track features mostly high-speed sections with fast passage corners, the second half is more technical, requiring sharp corners and a tight pace. There’s also a high-speed chicane towards the end of the circuit, but it’s yet to be seen if this circuit will also have its own version of it Gran Turismo 7 hijacker UFO.
Finally, update 1.17 also introduces three major new menu items to the Gran Turismo Café. These are the Toyota 86 Collection, the Honda Type R Collection, and the Rotary Engine Collection. All three unlock at relatively high Collector levels, meaning new players may need to complete others first Gran Turismo 7 Menu books instead.
While Gran Turismo 7While the full car roster was remarkably impressive on launch day, Polyphony Digital seems keen to fill it out even more. The team hasn’t said anything about any major paid expansion packs or DLC, so it’s possible the game will simply continue to receive medium-sized content drops for the foreseeable future. Whatever the case, fresh content is always a good thing, and GT7 is on the way to getting more of it.
