Gran Turismo sequence founder Kazunori Yamauchi has taken to Twitter to announce and tease the following replace to Gran Turismo 7, which can arrive on consoles this coming week.
It’s coming just a little faster than expected, touchdown round 3 weeks after the earlier content material replace on September 29. That’s the shortest period between content material updates but, with maximum coming 4 or 5 weeks aside — and, except 1.15 and 1.17, at the closing Thursday of every month.
Another abnormal aspect is that the replace, which we’re quickly dubbing 1.25, will deliver 4 new automobiles as an alternative of the 3 we’ve noticed teased for each and every replace so far:
This set of automobiles seems to be rather simple to spot, despite the fact that with some qualifiers. Probably the simplest is the only within the bottom-left, which seems to be to be a 1973 Nissan Skyline GT-R.
Often dubbed “Kenmeri”, because of a promotional marketing campaign that includes a pair named Ken and Mary, Nissan simplest produced 197 examples of this vehicle — the closing Nissan powered by means of the straight-six S20 engine — making it probably the most rarest GT-Rs of all. That’s a shoo-in for the Legends Cars broker.
Sitting to its correct is a fourth-generation Mazda MX-5/Roadster. That could be a fairly arguable selection, as GT7 already has an ND type. However the present vehicle is the 1.5-liter type, so this generally is a 2.0-liter variant. With the MX-5s mythical array of particular editions, pinning it down exactly received’t be imaginable till the automobile is formally published.
In the top-right nook we discover an up to date type of the Nissan GT-R GT3. First competing in 2018, this vehicle used the post-MY17 frame for the primary time, together with enhancements over the 2012 vehicle and its 2015 replace.
It’s tough to inform whether or not the automobile is the unique 2018 model or the fewer commonplace 2020 Evo, as bodily variations have been small. It will also be a selected group automobile, similar to probably the most GT300 automobiles run within the Super GT sequence.
Finally, within the peak correct nook, there’s the Maserati Merak. This is a V6 spinoff of the Maserati Bora, and certainly the 2 automobiles are virtually an identical as much as the B-pillar. However the Merak includes a remodeled rear finish, partially dictated by means of the other engines, particularly together with an open rear with “flying buttress” taste C-pillars as an alternative of a glass-covered compartment.
Although it’s tough to inform from the silhouettes, it looks as if the automobile is a standard Merak because of the loss of the hood-mounted grille of the upper efficiency SS (and the later, low-output 2000GT).
These teasers simplest ever come with automobiles which might be coming to the replace, so different content material and lines are unknown presently. However gamers could be anticipating a brand new monitor this month, as there’s seemed to be a development in updates so far.
Every different replace thus far has introduced both a brand new circuit or new layouts at an present one. May, July, and September’s updates didn’t come with a circuit, whilst April, June, and August’s did. Additionally the April and August updates added diversifications to present tracks — Spa-Francorchamps and Barcelona — with June bringing Watkins Glen as the one solely new circuit. October due to this fact turns out ripe for a brand new monitor.
As for different options and adjustments, the addition of the promised car-selling function is person who the neighborhood is nonetheless expecting. There shall be different tweaks too, together with a brand new batch of engine swaps and extra Cafe Menu Books.
We don’t have a selected date for the replace but, however we’d be expecting it to be round Thursday, October 20.
