All Cars Getting Cockpit View in Next GT5 Update

by William Schwartz on October 5, 2011


Polyphony lists the many changes coming to Gran Turismo 5

If you thought that Gran Turismo 5 would sit idly by and watch Forza Motorsport take all of the racing glory this year, think again.  Polyphony Digital recently announced an upcoming update for the game that will add new features, but those features hadn’t been detailed…until now.

In the coming weeks, GT5 will get a handful of updates that change the game, and add new features that fans have been asking for.

“The coming Gran Turismo 5 Spec 2 update is an update that contains the feedback from the users playing GT5 online every day,” said Yamauchi. “We have added cars such as the newest NASCAR race cars, but many of the updates are those that improve usability and expand the field of game play. I believed from the initial release of Gran Turismo 5 that it would be the users that would make the game grow thereafter, and we added things like interior views for the standard models because there was a lot of request for it from our users. You could say that this update is the shape and form of GT5 that was created through the opinions of our fans.”

In the updates you can also look forward to being able to adjust weather conditions, customize avatars, shuffle racing modes, customize online races, and save your game within a race.  The updates will start rolling out on October 11th, but it’s clear that they are putting it out to take a little wind out of Forza Motorsport 4’s “sails” err sales.

    Took the words right out of my mouth! Crazy, I can’t wait to see some of the cars I got in cockpit mode.

    Too little too late. Forza isn’t the one you should worry about, it’s shift 2.

  • thal

    Shift 2??? Isn’t that straight arcade racing?

  • NJB

    lol, shift 2.

    The 50+ Gb of data on the blu-ray is 15 years of Experience and Content. The game is huge.

    So what if not every car hasnt got an interior view. Forza 3 didnt at all. but now GT 5 has that feature.

    GT 5 has just been getting better since release. The Constant updates are part of the games life. New features, systems, and little things make the Whole Picture even Better.

    GT isnt a game that you buy and then a few DLC or map packs get released to try an squeeze some fun out of it, its constantly getting bigger & somehow better.

    You cant hate on GT, its practically one of the few games that is untouchable and its still just as fresh and enjoyable as it was during the PS1 days.

      NJB said “So what if not every car hasnt got an interior view. Forza 3 didnt at all. but now GT 5 has that feature.”

      Did you actually play Forza 3? EVERY car in Forza 3 had an interior view.

  • Lolall3n

    Gt5 is a boring game I have it and can admit it the copy and paste job from gt4 was ridiculous but to each is their own

  • NJB

    @Lolall3n

    Each to their own

    The years Polyphonic spent on GT5 wasnt just graphics, a real driving simutor isnt just about what you see, all the things going on in the background physics and other technical stuff.

    To me Forza so far still doesnt make you feel like your actually driving the car, its still quite detached. Fair enough a damage model is nice

    From what I have seen Forza 4 is purely nice looking, thats it. All we have seen is shiny Super & Mucsle cars. And some of the damage model. No actual footage of gameplay or a Race from a gamers perspective.
    Im not saying its a BAD game but from what MS have shown us it just looks Nice Graphically thats it.

    Cant really judge it til its out
