Gran Turismo Sport update 1.57 adds new content

Sony and Polyphony Digital have released their latest patch for PS4 driving simulator, Gran Turismo Sport.

Update 1.57 is available right – you’ll be required to download and install this new patch to access the game’s online features.

Headlining GT Sport’s April content update is a brand new car for racing fans to compete in – the 2020 Toyota GR Supra RZ (N300).

Here is developer Polyphony’s breakdown of the new Toyota, via the PlayStation Blog:

The Toyota Supra ended production in 2002 to the dismay of many fans worldwide, but the car made its comeback in the 2019 North American International Auto Show. This flagship Toyota model, which carries over the inline 6-cylinder engine and rear wheel drive, is headed by chief engineer Tetsuya Tada, who also brought the Toyota 86 to life. Under the slogan ‘Numbers are one thing, feeling is what matters,’ he proceeded to create a car that speaks to the senses of the driver. Optimally balanced with a 50:50 weight distribution and a low center of gravity, it provides powerful acceleration with a twin scroll turbo. The quick handling enabled by the wide body and short wheelbase is a result of a pursuit to achieve an ideal sports car, and its glamorous and elegant form and straight six engine sound combine to give it an aura that is unrivaled by others.

The GR Supra RZ was developed for not only real motorsports but also with competition in Gran Turismo Sport in mind. The further refined 2020 model will also come in highly anticipated new body colors.

Gran Turismo Sport launched back in October 2017 to mostly positive reviews, sitting on an OpenCritic score of 76. We scored the game a strong 8/10 in our review when Teflon took it for a comprehensive test drive.

Despite making some interesting changes to the series’ long-running formula (appointment-based races and PlayStation VR support, for example) fans were displeased by the lack of a dedicated singleplayer campaign.

  1. The DLC is getting less and less but it’s great to see Polyphony are still releasing content so long after release. Most of their staff must be working on GT 7 so it’s ready for the PS5’s launch……..dreaming again!
