As much as we can complain that VR Time Trials should have been in GT Sport right on day one, as perhaps the most obvious possible inclusion to make it feel worthwhile, I’m still rather glad that it’s now being rolled into the game as part of the 1.15 update released this morning. You’ll also now be able to earn rewards for both Time Trial and VR Tour modes.
Another long, long overdue feature is support for the Fanatec CSL Elite Racing Wheel, which was mooted for launch, but mysteriously not available at the time. Why it’s taken quite so long to appear is anyone’s guess, but it makes the wheel a much more viable option for GT Sport fans.
However, if you have no interest in fancy hats or buying a new racing wheel, it’s all about content. In a PS3 inspired update, Tsukuba Circuit will give players flashbacks to the endurance races of Gran Turismo 5, while the thirteen cars being added including the ludicrous concept cars of the Red Bull X-series and a smattering of GT500 class vehicles.
- Honda Raybrig Concept-GT (GT500)
- Lexus Au Tom’s RC F (GT500)
- Nissan Motual Autech GT-R (GT500)
- Aston Martin DB11
- BMW M3 Sport Evolution
- Eckerts Rod & Custom Mach Forty
- Ford GT40 Mark I
- Gran Turismo Red Bull X2014 Standard
- Gran Turismo Red Bull X2014 Junior
- Lexus RC F GT3
- Mazda RX-7 GT-X (FC)
- Nissan Skyline GT-R V-Spec (R33)
- Nissan GT-R Nismo
These cars then feed into the GT League single player, which has a trio of new events:
- Nissan GT-R Cup – Beginner League
- Red bull X-Junior Series – Amateur League
- All Japan GT Car Championships – Professional League
