    Polyphony Digital have release a new update to Gran Turismo Sport.


    Bringing the Sony PlayStation 4 exclusive title to build version 1.12, Polyphony Digital yesterday released another new update to Gran Turismo Sport as they look to further refine the latest inclusion to the long standing and hugely popular console racing franchise.

    It appears as if the latest update from Polyphony Digital and Sony has centred around the handling of the cars themselves, something that has attracted plenty of comment and discussion since the title released back in October last year, hopefully finally giving the game that much needed extra polish to move it ahead of rivals Forza, Project CARS 2 and Assetto Corsa in the sim racing console leagues.

    Build 1.12 update notes:

    I've seen my fair share of videos that contradict this.

    Are those screenshots un-doctored, in-game renders? If so, that's quite simply stunning!

    Have to admit, what with the PlayStation back catalogue and the hardware specs, that PS4 Pro purchase is looming larger and larger. I just wish I could jailbreak it and mix it up between Linux and Orbis OS (the FreeBSD-based OS developed by Sony for the PS4), because that would allow me to replace my current Linux HTPC with the PS4 Pro and have the various Linux emulators run on it as well...

    Little bit confused about the Venice backdrop in the first screenshot. Are we supposed be getting all wet at the prospect of a racing game in a city that has no roads? :cautious:

    their photomode adds an additional bit of processing onto this for better aliasing/motion blur, and also entire car gets the full LOD, but the shaders/lighting are pretty much the same thing

    here earlier I posted a true in-game screenshot,
    has to be said that I do play on PS4Pro though

    Does anybody know of any links to GtSports roadmap !? I read last year they had plans for eventually something like 170 ( way to much imho ) free cars in DLC over the months with free tracks too. Obviously Monza arrived in December but was wondering which tracks they may add and if they will improve the VR at all. Have read they are thinking of adding time trial to VR but no human to human racing which is a big shame...

    Still rather more impressed with the game than I thought possible :thumbsup:

    for me persoanlly, it's the best Gran Turismo to date,

    yes you don't have tons of cars ( many of which are copies of the same base car)
    single player still same/similar dull experience

    but what I love about it - and those are the main reasons why I think it's the best gran turismo up to date

    - I love the concept where you get a base road car, Gr4, and sometimes Gr3 variants of it
    - I love all the small details that makes tracks feel alive ( photographers walking around track, marshalls with flags, LED screens for flags)
    - absolutely stunning visuals

    what I don't like is
    - no dynamic time of day
    - no dynamic weather

    also, I would try to propagate the MP system into SP as well, so that you can actually do a qualify session and start from pole position, rather then always fight through the pack

    Has the AI had any love or is it still a GT weak point?

    From my experience of years of gran turismo, AI is pretty good in Sport.
