Gran Turismo 7’s June update introduces a surprise new track
Tomorrow morning, a new update for Gran Turismo 7 will be released. It will include three previously revealed new vehicles as well as an unexpected circuit addition to Polyphony Digital’s racing series.
A mainstay of the US racing scene, Watkins Glen International once hosted F1 before it was declared unsafe following a string of tragic incidents. Gran Turismo 7’s rendition of the circuit is a ramshackle sort of place that currently hosts organisations like IMSA and NASCAR, and driving either of the available layouts is an incredible thrill.
Along with the renowned V6 Escudo Pikes Peak Special, there are three new vehicles, including two Suzukis and a new fictional “Vision” car. Gran Turismo has been using the official licence for Pikes Peak for some time now; how about adding Pikes Peak to the game?
Other notable additions include the powerful 1932 Ford Roadster and three new menus that can be found in the Gran Turismo Cafe. These menus serve to expand the single-player experience by requiring you to acquire Toyota 86s, Honda Type Rs, and Rotary Engined vehicles.
Since its release earlier this year, Gran Turismo 7 has received praise for its return to the series’ origins as well as criticism for its disgusting handling of microtransactions and punitive in-game economy.
