Grand Touring 7 It was far from having the expected impact with the public, who slaughtered it in the hearings. However, Polyphony Digital promises to address some of gamers’ biggest complaints in their next game update.
According to Kazunori Yamauchi, CEO of the development studio, the patch that will be released in early April will come with several new features that will seek to calm the spirits of users of Grand Touring 7. Since better rewards and a wider variety of events to earn creditsto an increased availability of “coveted” cars for sale, to name a few.
In this way, Polyphony Digital hopes begin to please the players of GT7, who did not hesitate to express their discomfort with the long-awaited racing title. However, the company knows it still has a lot of work to do and promises that more features will be added in the coming months; among many others, that users can sell cars in their garage.
Improvements coming to Gran Turismo 7 in early April
As announced by Yamauchi, the next major update for Grand Touring 7 will integrate 100% average increase in rewards for events in the second half of the World Circuits. There will also be higher prizes for any Gold or Bronze results in Track Experiences, as well as better rewards for Online Races.
On the other hand, there will be more used or Legendary cars in the offers and eight new one-hour Endurance races will be added to the missions. Finally, the limit of unpurchased credits in players’ wallets will be raised from 20 million to 100 million.
It is clear that this is only a first step in trying to change the attitude of the public towards Grand Touring 7; but it serves as proof that the claims did not fall on deaf ears. That’s why it’s also important to mention that Polyphony Digital will give you a pack of 1 million credits to everyone affected by the March 17th and 18th server crash. The latter will be available to those who have a digital or physical copy of GT7 purchased before March 25; to receive the “return” they will need to log into the game at least once before April 25th.
Polyphony Digital wants to fix things
Beyond the announcement of the changes that will come GT7 in April, Kazunori Yamauchi apologized to fans of the saga Grand tourism. “I would like to apologize for the frustration and confusion caused last week with our updates, which resulted in not only a server outage, but also adjustments to the game economy that were made without a clear explanation to our community,” he explained.
Remember that patch 1.07 of Grand Touring 7 changed the payouts made on some rides. This prompted the players receive minor rewards, requiring them to repeat events and spend more hours earning credits to buy cars. This added to the already existing criticisms regarding the increase in prices of several models of vehicles, which had taken a very significant jump in relation to their value in GT-Sport, both in credits and real money. Thus, users found that multiple units could cost double (or more) what they had already paid for the game.
And to make matters worse, a technical breakdown forced the servers to go into maintenance mode for more than 24 hours. This left Grand Touring 7 virtually unplayablesince even the individual campaign mode requires you to be permanently connected.
As we previously indicated, Polyphony Digital claims to have several other novelties in preparation for this year. Among many, the possibility that users sell cars in their garage; but it also promises to increase the payout value of limited-time rewards and add new events to missions. —including 24-hour Endurance races— and global circuits.
