    GT Sport Update 1.08 - 4.jpg
    Gran Turismo Sport has received the update treatment, however before getting excited it's not the big offline career one we've all been waiting for...

    Despite fans eagerly awaiting a promised new build of GT Sport that will look to add some substantial feature inclusions such as offline career modes similar to the traditional GT offerings alongside 12 new cars, the new 95MB update is still welcomed and is getting a positive reception from those who have access to the game.

    Aimed mostly at bug fixing and putting to rest some remaining niggles with the title, it is perhaps best to label this new build as more of a hotfix than fully fledged and meaty main game update.

    GT Sport Build 1.08 Change Log:
    • Friend Rankings - The Friend Rankings of the Campaign has been refreshed to resolve issues.
    • Save Data - We have fixed an issue where the save data would become corrupted due to a mismatch occurring at startup regarding the number of Race Photos registered as favourites, depending on the number of photos registered as favourites from the Gallery.
    • Other Issues - Other issues for improving stability have been addressed.

    Polyphony have confirmed the "GT Mode" single player challenges and 12 car update pack will be released in just three short days, and should go a long way towards appeasing fans of the series disappointed with the new direction of GT Sport. Stay tuned to RaceDepartment for more news as and when it becomes available.


    GT Sport is available for Sony PlayStation 4 now.

    @Queequeg I remember one update for GT6 that ended up breaking something with the transmission, and didn't get fixed until the next patch a month later. It seems that someone at PD is not very good at their job.

    Me too! I was lucky enough for my work to give me a Christmas present of a PS4 Pro recently, this was the first game I bought for it. Looking forward to the single-player career mode for some indulgent fun.

    visually there's no competition to it, I'm really wondering if they will keep the quality once then add the dynamic time of day and weather in GT7

    Are there any signs of them adding even dynamic weather in an update?

    this isn't something they can add in update/patch, engine would need to support it , so they are better of putting it into rewritten engine for GT7, ..

    when they introduced the time of day and weather in GT6 compared to GT5, if I remember correctly, suddenly the visuals were way worse
