Gran Turismo 7 has rolled out yet another update that, among other things, improves the in-game economy. Update 1.11 was released on Thursday, bringing more races and challenges, better availability of used cars, and some physics tweaks, in addition to bug fixes.
GT7 arrived in early March for the PS4 and PS5 consoles. Although the game felt true to the 25-year-old franchise, it quickly raised the ire of fans, first because of the presence of microtransactions and then because a day-and-a-half server outage left almost the entire game unplayable for everyone.
Developer Polyphony Digital’s studio boss, Kazunori Yamauchi, apologized to fans in late March for the downtime and for changes to the game’s economy that drastically reduced the amount of credits a player could earn in an hour. As part of that apology, every GT7 player was given an extra 1.2 million credits.
At the time, Yamauchi promised more substantial changes in the April game update.
These include three new events in the World Circuit mode, new rewards for custom and arcade races (which paid out very little until now), reward cars for completing the Circuit Experience challenges in either bronze or gold, and a new set of missions, each of which is an hour-long endurance race with a 1.2 million-credit payout.
