Official Trailer for the Next Coming Grand Touring 7 The update leaked ahead of schedule, confirming the three cars we’ve been expecting and suggesting the update will arrive on Thursday, July 28.
Update 1: GT7’s official website has posted a “Game Update Maintenance” notice, confirming that the update will arrive on July 28.
Update 2: Information on all content has now been published through official channels; The article below has been modified to reflect this.
The video was first Posted on Bilibili, a video streaming platform in China, via the official PlayStation account there. Sony actually owns part of Bilibili, known locally as “B-Site,” having invested $400 million in the platform in 2020.
These videos usually arrive in the hours after the relevant update, but this video has arrived a bit early. This could be due to a time zone mismatch or a slight date confusion, as the official Gran Turismo Channels released the video later.
It takes the usual format of update videos we’ve seen over the past few years, titled “Gran Turismo 7 Free Update July 2022” before moving on to a preview of the new content it offers.
First, the good news: the video confirms the identities of the three cars Jokes by Kazunori Yamauchi before the weekend.
This means that when the update arrives, players will be able, depending on credits and game progress, to drive a Maserati A6GCS/53 Spyder, a Nissan Skyline Super Silhouette, and a Porsche 918 Spyder. All three cars are very important additions.
The 918 Spyder is the second of the three super-hybrid cars to be added to the game, after the Ferrari LaFerrari that debuted in GT Sport. Technically, a third is also in the game, although the McLaren P1 GTR is a track-only model rather than a P1 road car.
Grand Touring 2 Fans will remember the power-packed, hooded Nissan Skyline Super Silhouette somewhat fondly. This Group 5 monster has successfully raced in Japan’s Fuji Grand Championship series, although it’s not clear where he would fit in GT7Racing categories. It’s also the first car to return from the PS1 era in Gran Turismo without any appearance.
The Maserati A6GCS/53 Spyder has finally become a car we’ve been anticipating for a while. This is because Kazunori Yamauchi was personally awarded the Gran Turismo award in 2014 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. This Fantuzzi-body car was built to compete in the 1953 World Athletics Championships.
However, the video shows only these three cars. Unlike the April and June updates, which added a 24-hour chart for Spa-Francorchamps and Watkins Glen respectively, there is no trace of a new circuit in the video. This indicates that, like the May update, there is no carousel content coming this time around.
One thing that an additional article on the official website confirmed is two new Scapes sites, and one that’s actually very strange.
Most likely in honor of the main sponsor of Masahiro Hashemi’s Nissan R30 Skyline Silhouette, Polyphony Digital has added “Tomica Town” to its Scapes catalog. This is the first completely unreal site, consisting of models of buildings and roads from the Tomica game collection – and it should offer some interesting photography.
Of course the videos only highlight the new content, and the update will likely include other changes as well. Fans are hoping for new single-player races to expand the “offline” offering, as well as the ability to sell cars – something that was highlighted in Game roadmap back in March.
Hopefully we’ll also see some lobby issues, with settings loading and saving as well as general stability, which have been addressed, along with other pressing concerns. However, we will have to wait for the full patch notes after the update to see what has changed.
A special game update server maintenance is scheduled from 0600-0800 UTC on Thursday, July 28, with the update available for download during this window. Players will need to wait for maintenance to finish in order to access the updated game.
