Gran Turismo Sport 1.06 Adds Cars & Offline Campaign Next Week, GT League Single Player In December

But saving is still online only.

There’s some big additions coming to Gran Turismo Sport in the next month, all of which will be kicked off by the 1.06 patch that is to release next week on Monday 27th November.

But first I want to talk about one of my main complaints from GT Sport and the asinine anti-consumer decision to lock much of the game’s single player content behind the need to be online and connected to GT Sport’s servers. Thankfully, Polyphony are stepping back from the overly rigorous limitations at launch, by allowing you to play Campaign mode and access the livery editor and Scapes. However, you will still lose progress if you quit the game without saving, and you can only save when you’re online. It’s a step in the right direction, but it’s still a bloody stupid situation.

The best news for those disappointed by the lacklustre single player options in the game is that a free December update will add the GT League mode, which is based on the old GT mode. You’ll be able to race through cup competitions from beginner to pro difficulties, and yes, it will include endurance races. It’s a mode that will grow through 2018. Fingers crossed you’ll be able to play it while you’re offline…

The 1.06 update will add the Audi R18 Le Mans Prototype, Shelby Cobra 427 and fictional ISO Rivolta Zagato VGT to the game, but it’s just the beginning. There will be 12 cars added in December, growing to 50 free additions by March of 2018. December will see the following classics added:

  • Mazda RX-7 Spirit R Type A (FD)
  • Nissan Skyline GT-R V・spec II (R32)
  • Nissan Skyline GT-R V・spec II Nür (R34)
  • Ford F-150 SVT Raptor
  • Lamborghini Countach LP400
  • Ferrari F40
  • Ferrari Enzo Ferrari
  • KTM X-BOW R
  • Suzuki Swift Sport
  • Volkswagen Sambabus Typ 2 (T1)
  • Chris Holstrom Concepts 1967 Chevy Nova
  • Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Convertible (C3)

    Excellent stuff, really looking forward to the single player gt mode.

    It doesn’t make a lot of difference though that you can play those modes while offline, if you can’t bloody save unless you’re online.

    It doesn’t effect me as I’m always online, but bleeding hell it’s stupid!

    Not sure any of this will be interesting single-player wise, but maybe in 6 months with a significant chunk more content, including new 2017/2018 cars, then it will be.

    I’d really like them to add false start checks, and recommended cars for multiplayer. A clutch would be nice, but I know that’s never going to happen.

    Brilliant and somewhat unexpected news. Can’t wait to get stuck into the Sunday Cup etc in December. It may have been light on content, but this game looks like it will evolve over time into what we all hoped it would be, and at least they are free updates.

    I’m certainly in for the long run. Loving it even as it currently is tbh, and have put in nearly 100 hours of play time already.
