New update for Gran Turismo 7 It’s available now, with a slew of changes designed to address some of the bugs some players have been experiencing since the game’s public launch last week.
Weighing in at 916MB on PlayStation 5, the update known as 1.06 is the first post-launch patch for the title – players had to update to 1.05 on day one in order to play.
As you would expect from an update relatively early in the game’s life, the volume is not in line with new content but rather to fix notable vulnerabilities across the community. In the case of version 1.06, major fixes relate to game progress issues.
Basic fix covers issues with list books not completing properly. This prevented players from progressing in the basic single player game, and as a result, Unlock Tracks and Features. We’ve received a number of reports from players about this issue appearing, although the patch notes state that it’s a “very rare issue”…
There is also a solution to an issue with one of the game’s prizes, Rain Royalty. Although it isn’t specifically detailed in the trophy’s description, it is at least awarded for passing all license tests set in wet weather conditions – although in some cases it hasn’t played properly.
This is now fixed, and according to the patch notes, if you’re affected, you can pick up the trophy by going backwards and get a Bronze (or better) time each time. However, GTPlanet users have reported that completing any one test (such as a B-1) will result in a trophy.
Another licensing test glitch that actually helped gamers out, but it’s now been undone. Enabled bug has been introduced Override boost feature On the Super Formula car used in the S-7 test, which makes target times a lot easier. This is undone and the leaderboards cleared – but you’ll keep your progress.
Apart from that, the fixes in the update cover minor but annoying bugs across the board. The full patch notes are quite long, but include modifications to the vehicle’s settings, bodywork editor, GT Auto functions, brand invites, and display. In addition, there is a fix for the Thrustmaster TH8A adapter. In addition, the patch notes also indicate Faulty engine swapsThis is the first time this feature has been directly recognized in any way.
There is also one new feature that has been added, via a wind speed/direction indicator on the main racing screen. We’ve seen strong crosswinds affect the vehicle previously, but the indicator will also allow players to anticipate the arrival and departure of weather systems.
The update is now available, and you’ll need to apply it before you can access the bulk of Gran Turismo 7Features.
