GT5 update and DLC detailed

Latest Gran Turismo 5 DLC offers three new cars; the update will add game enhancements and fix some reported issues.

by

Sony has unveiled new DLC and an update for Gran Turismo 5 on its official PlayStation blog. Due to arrive on September 25, the DLC features three new cars available for individual purchase at A$0.99 each.

The Subaru BRZ S '12 could be yours (virtually, at least) for A$0.99.

The new cars available include the Nissan GT-R N4 GT Academy ’12, Subaru BRZ S’12, and Honda Weider HSV-010 (Super GT) ’11. In addition to new content, a downloadable update will bring the game to version 2.08, and add tweaks including the option to disable collisions in online races, and change the rate of tire wear and air resistance. Patch notes include:

• Now possible to select "disable collisions" in the [Event Settings] of online races
• IDs are now shown above cars when watching online races
• Response of the clutch pedal when using the steering wheel controllers; “G25 Racing Wheel”, “G27 Racing Wheel”, “T500RS”, and “TH8RS” has been adjusted
• Rate of tire wear in endurance races has been slowed (excluding formula cars)
• Amount of air resistance change when altering aerodynamic wing settings has been increased
• Autopilot has been adjusted to prevent colliding with the wall when exiting the pit lane on the Tsukuba circuit
• Adjusted the changes in control characteristic when altering vehicle height from standard height. (Vehicle height can be changed by adjusting ride height, either by installing a suspension kit or adjusting a full customisable suspension kit.)

GT5 was well received when it was released in 2010 as a PlayStation 3 exclusive, and has sold over 6 million copies.

It is a shame that Forza is a Xbox exclusive, otherwise GT, would be nothing more than "water under the bridge"

Why don't they out source modelling duties? its ridiculous, that Sonys flag ship racing game has a handful of employees...that’s why forza can pop out so many cars they got 1bizlion people working at turn10

A perfect example of a completely missed opportunity and just generally bad handling of a franchise. GT5 is a complete failure compared to Forza 4 and how they handle DLC.

GT5? I prefer GT2. I just need to remember where i put my PS1.

this game is really good when it comes to engineering and physics behind cars,, 

but it still lacks fun and adrenaline rush of NFS !!!!!

I wish they would release more cars in a DLC pack of 10 or 20 cars at a time, instead of  only 3 each sold on its own :(

Not much downloadable has come out for this game in the time its been out.

It has been a fairly disappointing Gran Turismo game, they could do some much more with it but they just dont..

Now in a very Gamespot manor they are going to make a new news topic on Forza Motorsport/Horizon (Finally completed every race on Forza 4 today). Or at least thats how they usually do it lol.

 

Anyway even though I haven't touch Gran Turismo 5 in a good year, its good to hear that Polyphony Digital is updating a excellent racing game.

Why do they even bother with the BRZ in the game. There is already the Toyota 86 GT, and the Scion FR-S,  which are the exact same car.  I would rather waste a dollar by throwing nickles at people.

Really? People complaining that just 3 cars and that forza puts 10 cars??.. For Christ Sake come on!!, Gran Turismo 5 had over 1000 cars since the very beginning, and how many the other self-called opponent?.. oh yeah that's right.. not even close... WTF with this fan people....

Ha ha, but with those car packs in Forza4 you get like 2 or 3 cars you like and the the rest are trash, except the Porsche pack. Someone expressed disappointment because they purchased a wheel to play GT5 with but likes FM4? Crap are you on, GT5 with G25/27 or TR500 wheel destroys FM4 with any wheel you can find to use on 360. Physics is tighter and well, cars should not magically flip when riding over curbing on any race track. FM4 has loads of great things in it, but when it comes to putting the rubber on the road, I'll take GT5 every time. FM4 cars still do the magic steer thing for you, I thought Turn 10 took that out after the FM3 debacle...whatever!

Polyphony has so much luxury its crazy...

I just got GT5 XL free in my PS3 Slim bundle. I already have GT5 from a previous purchase. I played it for like 2 days and then went back to playing Forza 4. lol!! GT5 is pretty boring, but I haven't played it online yet. Maybe that will be more fun. I'm glad they added some improvements though. I'm not paying a $1 for extra cars however. I can't stand Subarus. They could have did better then that.

 

Forza 4 >>>>>> GT5

I love my GT5 and say screw the haters,but even i dont expect much from PolyD in terms of improvement with GT6. Especially when they still cant give even the simplest of what the fans want (another Nissan,Subaru,and Honda...seriously????)

Three new cars on top of the few hundreds there already are isn't much of a thrill.

 I'm still waiting for the fun patch. I played it for all of 40 minutes (after 3 hours of installation) nearly feel asleep. Haven't touched it since.

I remember buying a driving wheel just for GT5 when it first came out, and was honestly kinda disappointed when they wouldn't even add first person support for the PS2 ported cars :/

no patch can save this game; don't put anymore effort/money to a very old PS2 concept game.....focus on a PS4 version or at least on what a PS3 concept was supposed to be from start

Long live the BRZ!!! Now if Forza will grab it.

grid all the way, grid 2 now !! you know its not unfair to criticize gt5 after 5 years of waiting. If i was at school "could do better" would have been the report, a lot better. If the developers of forza (hate saying that) can manage to beat it in every way in a year, what went wrong or were Sony waiting for the kine-ct to come and needed a selling point for their already lagging move system, but that's another topic entirely.

lol, below lots of people who can't read as fast as they click.  One new never before seen car and some fixes. now if turn 10 can get their asses in gear and fix blasted constant freezing during online i will be happy.

Honestly I just gave up on GT5, feels half unfinished, 3/4 PS2 game and horrible interface and multiplayer system.

 

Please make a full fledged PS3 game for GT 6, one that ditches PS2 model cars, tracks and a working online matchmaking. While your at it, ditch the the web interface, whose idea was that?!

Nice too see effort still being put into GT5.

Oops, I glanced at the headline and thought it said GTA5.  ~sigh~  That was a bit of a bummer.

thats cool. i havent gotten to the endurance races so its cool to hear they adjusted something before i get to experience it. i was hoping they would include midfield track but i guess its still a no go

This game was a major let down. Hopefully this patch helps the game some.

 @phoenix5352 Or of the ps1/ps2 gran turismos... I'm hoping they keep the nice physics and just add more stuff in GT6 if it gets made

 @Elnath10 I don't know if you have ever driven any of those "1000 cars" but all of the "used" cars, which make up the bulk of GT5's roster are pretty much the same. We don't need 500 different versions of a Nissan Skyline.

 @SavageEvil Guess you've never visited the options menu to turn off the "magic steer thing" you so loathe.

 @SavageEvil sorry, but the GT5 tire physics are sh*t. Compared to real world racing, anyone will tell you that you can go 6sec quicker per lap and 5-10mph faster per turn on GT5 than you can in real life. also the apex physics in FM4 are real; have you ever hit one yourself in real life? you will go side ways on 2 wheels or 3. My civic always hops on 3 wheels when I hit the apex; I have pics to prove it.

 @dre256x theyre 99 cents and are sold separately... no packs, no fat, just what you want if you want it... how is this bad.
