New Gran Turismo 5 Update & DLC Coming December 20th [UPDATE: Full Details]

Gran Turismo 5 December 14th, 2011 by Jordan (GT Planet)

6507730359_c5a2964d8a_z

Kazunori Yamauchi has announced Gran Turismo 5‘s next software update and new downloadable content will be coming on December 20, 2011. Via Twitter:

[Japanese tweet, translated:] GT5 next update, DLC, Christmas is one week later. On December 20. Tomorrow is going to be a press release.

[English tweet:] The release of the next GT5 update, DLC, and Christmas present is coming next week.

Polyphony Digital has already posted an online service maintenance notice for the date, between the hours of 03:00-04:00 GMT, so the new material should become available at that specific time.

UPDATE: Sony has jumped the gun a bit, posting all the information about the new content on their blog. Here’s a complete listing of all the new changes coming in GT5 2.02:

  • Users can now change wheels on Standard cars
  • The settings sheets will include a new ‘copy’ feature
  • In GT Auto, players will be able to see how the oil changes, aerodynamic parts, engine overhauls, and racing modifications will affect performance points and engine power, before and after their application
  • Free coupons have been added that allow you to wash cars, change oil, overhaul your engine, or refresh the car body in GT Auto (10 coupons will be distributed for free to each of those who have downloaded the 2.02 update)
  • Pressing the Square button in the car coupon selection screen of the Car Delivery will now allow you to exchange all car coupons at once, rather than doing one at a time
  • In screens where the [Garage] and [Driver List] buttons are displayed in the A/B Spec events, Special Events, and Seasonal Events, pressing the Square button will now show the [Garage], and pressing the Triangle button will bring up the drivers list
  • In My Lounge, the room settings will feature a new ‘Max. number of participants’ setting
  • In the event selection screen of seasonal events, there are now ☆(star) marks that show the number of Gold Trophies attained in each event
  • Improved racing sound effects
  • Elements of the steering assist controls (used when using certain controllers on Racing Karts) have been tweaked.

These new cars will also be available as DLC for $3.99:

  • 2011 Mini Cooper S
  • 2010 Volkswagen Golf VI R
  • 2010 Volkswagen Scirocco R
  • 2012 Nissan GT-R Black edition R35.

The blog post also confirms the Toyota 86 will be available for free in the 2.02 update, and the previous batch of DLC will now be available on all the user accounts of a PlayStation 3 console (they can be purchased from their respective dealers within the game).

Finally, anyone who purchased the first batch of DLC will receive a free “Gran Turismo Racing Kart 125 SP” along with five free “New Car Refresh” cards that reset any car in the game back to as-new condition, without losing any modifications that have been performed to it.

yeah, you can never have too many GT-Rs. the free Toyota 86 looks nice too. i wonder if that's the xmas gift that they mention. i like being able to put custom wheels on standard cars but that's gonna cost me a bunch, lol.

good news and bad news with the new update.
 
bad news: most of the seasonal events have been removed. there's only about ten now.
 
good news: you win a car gift ticket for getting all gold medals in each seasonal. if you've already golded them then just enter the event to receive your ticket. i got some level 19 and 20 extreme tickets yesterday along with some level 2 and 3's.

I see shuffle races are a problem with the new update, i guess if you vote for a map it will kick you to the main menu once in awhile.
 
Bain, the bat mobile is sweet, and faster then the other red bull!
 
Oh and did you see all those fvcking chrome paint chips??? i have two gold chrome cars, a silver chrome, and green purple and blue chrome chips left, my superbird and GT-R R35 look sweet :)

I bet JP is jealous of us with our cool new paint chips. I got two Gold chromes and thought of TX right away lol. I now have a Gold Zonda in TX's honor.

the DLC chrome chips are a little less bright than the ones you have a chance of winning for every 30 cars added to your garage, imo.
 
also, one of the polarized chips color shifts to gold chrome. it looks really cool. i'll try to remember which car I used it on and get you the name/number.
