Gran Turismo 5 receives new patch and DLC

It may have taken a long while to arrive on PS3, but since the launch of Gran Turismo 5 almost two years ago, you cannot fault the commitment Polyphony Digital have made in supporting the title.

That commitment has now been reinforced once again, with the announcement of another free patch and another set of DLC.

Update 2.08 will be hitting the game this coming Tuesday, along with a trio of fairly cheap vehicles for you to download. The Honda weider HSV-010 (SUPER GT) ’11, the Subaru BRZ S ’12 and the Nissan GT-R N24 GT Academy ’12, will all be available on the PSN next week for a price of $0.99 each.

The new content has only been confirmed for the US so far, but it’s a safe bet it will arrive in other territories soon. In fact, the GT Academy car will actually be included with the newly repackaged Gran Turismo 5: Academy Edition, which launches in Europe the following day.

Check out the the three new cars below, as well as the full patch details:

Update 2.08 – 

  • Now possible to select “Disable collisions” in the [Event Settings] of online races.
  • ID’s 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 customizable suspension kit.)
