Gran Turismo Sport update 1.06 detailed, free cars incoming

Polyphony Digital boss Kazunori Yamauchi has taken to the PlayStation Blog to detail the upcoming release of Gran Turismo Sport update 1.06. 

This latest patch for the PlayStation 4-exclusive racing simulator will introduce a wealth of new content, such as new cars and gameplay features.

Petrol heads will be able to get their digital paws on three new vehicles: ISO Rivolta Zagato VGT, Audi R18, and Shelby Cobra 427.

Gran Turismo Sport update 1.6 will be available on November 27, and also allows players to take part in the Livery Editor, Scapes, and Campaign modes offline. However, Yamauchi-san notes that you will still need access to the net to save your progress.

In addition, various gameplay balancing updates will also be implemented in the patch, resulting in an improved racing experience.

Elsewhere, December will see the launch of the single-player GT League. This latest addition to the game doffs its cap to the GT Mode of previous titles in the series, and sees players racing through numerous cup competitions, as well as endurance races.
