It’s been almost two weeks since Gran Turismo 7 has been in stores and, of course, a lot of updates are coming in little by little to fine-tune the experience. The PlayStation exclusive welcomes patch 1.07 today: here’s what changes.

More stability, and more

Gran Turismo 7 has very generous content that required long years of development: the end result is fortunately up to par and moreover, it has received a very nice note in our columns. Nevertheless, and because no one is perfect, some optimizations remained to be done as well as balancing and bug removal. Polyphony Digital even has a lot of work to do and after last week’s update, it’s the turn of patch 1.07 to come out this Thursday, March 17th.

There are many small changes: first of all, the correction of various and varied bugs including a particularly annoying one that occurred a few days ago, during the previous update, which changed the tire types of certain cars during specific events. It was then almost impossible to reach gold.

Other new settings are also to be declared, such as the adjustment of the rewards for certain events, or the modification of the grip of a specific type of vehicle when exiting a corner. At last, a new sound option is also introduced. It is precise, yes, but it is precisely what characterizes Gran Turismo!
