Gran Turismo Sport gets new cars and a fix for online griefing

Version 1.13 of Gran Turismo Sport has just gone live, and it brings with it a bevvy of new cars as well as some online fixes and a selection of new track layouts. Perhaps more importantly, given the online focus of the PlayStation 4 exclusive, it introduces some amendments to how driver conduct is policed in multiplayer races.

The new track layouts are specific to Blue Moon Raceway, with an infield section being added to the existing oval. Elsewhere there are 12 new cars, headlined by the introduction of a ‘Formula’ car that sees a proper single-seater racing car being introduced to Gran Turismo Sport for the first time. It’s Polyphony’s own creation, though it does look like they’ve leaned heavily on their own designs for the Lotus 98T in bringing their 80s-inspired beast to life. None of which is as exciting, though, as the addition of a mk2 Toyota MR2. Well, I’m excited anyway. Here, for you and only you, is the full car list added in version 1.13.

One thing that will make a big difference – with any luck – is a tweaking of how drivers are stewarded during online races. Gran Turismo Sport takes its cues from iRacing in awarding drivers a Sportsmanship Rating which rewards clean driving, though it has been open to abuse and fuzziness when it comes to the partitioning of blame in an incident.
