Polyphony Digital’s Gran Turismo Sport is the thirteenth instalment in the Gran Turismo franchise, and it will mark the series’ first ever appearance on PlayStation.
Gran Turismo Sport is currently in its beta phase, and recently received update 1.08. The update adds wear and tear to car parts, wheels and even fuel depletion, as well as adjusting a reported camera issue where the camera settings would reset to its default settings once the race starts. Here is everything beta update 1.08 brings to Gran Turismo Sport:
Main features implemented
- Time penalties will now be incurred if collisions between cars take place under certain conditions
- The issue that caused camera settings to be reset when restarting a race has been fixed
Other improvements and adjustments
- Various issues have been addressed.
Furthermore, after this patch has been applied, we are planning to hold races that feature tyre wear, fuel depletion, and car damage
Below is an example of the physical damage added to the beta, and as the footage suggests, car damage is mostly superficial. The car’s body will show scratches but there won’t be physical changes to the car, at least for now. Gran Turismo Sport releases for PS4 on November 16.
