When Gran Turismo Sport came to Playstation 4 at the end of last year, I wrote that it was a great game. Any lengthy problems I had with the way Polyphony Digital had simulated deck physics disappeared, plus it looked and sounded better than any previous deductions from the franchise. But it was also not perfect, especially for long-term fans of the series with little interest in racing other people online.
Since the October launch, Polyphony Digital has been working hard to send out regular updates, add new tracks, new cars, and (perhaps most importantly to the audience), which bite up singleplayer mode. The last of these updates was pushed out to PS4 consoles tomorrow, creating eight new cars and a new track. Among the additions are the 2017 championship-seeking Mercedes AMG F1 car, 1991 Le Mans-winning Mazda 787B, and the 1962 Ferrari 250 GTO (Serial No. 3729GT for those who keep track of). However, there is a tweak to the game that can attack someone: microtransactions.
From Monday in the Asian and American regions (and beginning August 2nd), it will be possible to pay real money for GT Sport cars as long as they cost less than two million credits in the game. Based on screenshots of the GT Sport website, it seems to be paying real money for cars through the Playstation Store, which costs about 99 cents per car. But when I watched this morning, this option was not full, but I can not confirm it.
Leave away the mind about microtransactions – which is optional, do not forget – I have to say my pleasure [GT459014] GT Sport has really grown in recent months. Perhaps like many of you, I find that I have less and less time to play games these days, but when I do, it's always GT Sport who gets some action and always in singleplayer. When the career mode is expanded with each update, there is now much to do. And while the game does not have the same variety as Forza Motorsport 7 when it comes to picking a car to drive, it's more than enough for me to choose from.
Some of the latest additions include tracks or cars from previous installments in this long-term franchise. I can not be the only one who was happy to see the return of the short Tsukuba circuit, for example. And the futuristic single seat Red Bull X2014 cars designed by the legendary F1 designer Adrian Newey-now has its own racer series. In particular, the Red Bull X2014 Jr is a great way to limit credit and a much better alternative to reaching for your real credit card. Nt only you will be able to feel free to avoid microtransactions, you will also undoubtedly improve your performance in the game along the way.
So if you read our review from 2017 and were suspended by the weight of online multiplayer in GT Sport do not worry anymore. Today you can run for days and days without interacting with another real person.
