Kazunori Yamauchi, creator of the Gran Turismo series, has confirmed that a new content update is coming. Gran Turismo 7 During the week of May 23.
Yamauchi took to social media to announce the update in its now traditional “silhouette.” This is a teaser for the car content that will arrive with the update, consisting of side shots of cars in thick shadows and lit from above.
Alongside the photo, Yamauchi confirmed that the update will arrive “next week,” although there is no exact date yet. It’s probably the end of the week, but GT updates don’t have a specific day of the week.
It’s an update we’ve been expecting, thanks to an earlier announcement from Toyota regarding 2022 Toyota Gazoo Racing GT Cup. The schedule includes a June 5 race for a car that is not in GT7 at the moment, which would require an update before then to add it. As we can see from the tweet, it’s one of the three cars listed.
This is Toyota GR010, the company’s entry into The new Le Mans Hypercar Category. This new class of high-profile endurance racers sought to finish the incredibly expensive LMP1 class in order to encourage more entries, by imposing cost limits and limits on aerodynamics, although the road-link requirement appears to have fallen off the radar.
The GR010 builds on the successful TS050, which has won Le Mans three times in a row — including twice in one season thanks to a calendar change. Perhaps unsurprising then, GR010 also won Le Mans on its debut, scoring 1-2 in the 2021 race.
Also easily recognizable is the car under the right, a car that has been waiting seven and a half years to make its Gran Turismo debut.
The GoPro Rampage 1970 Camaro By Roadster Shop won the Gran Turismo Award at the Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) in 2014, the award is a digital entertainment for inclusion in the Gran Turismo game.
It looks like the Camaro has been skipped, as every previous winner has already appeared in Gran Turismo and 2015 Fugu Z . Champion make its way to GT Sport. However, the LS7-powered Camaro, with extensive use of carbon fibers in its body panels, will finally arrive with the May update to GT7.
Identifying the last car in the lower left corner is currently proving more difficult. From the looks, it is a front-engined, rear-wheel drive car, with a Targa-style roof. While the most likely candidate at the moment is a C3-generation Corvette, it’s still a bit of a mystery at the moment.
Of course fans will also expect other things in the update, from bug fixes and quality of life tweaks, to new in-game events that expand the single-player offering. The ability to sell cars as mentioned earlier Message to the fansis a possible new feature, but no date has been confirmed for that yet.
As for other new content, such as tracks, we won’t expect anything yet – although Polyphony Digital often surprises us!
We don’t have an exact update date yet, so watch this space for more.
