Gran Turismo 7 Patch Adjusts The In-Game Economy

Gran Tur­is­mo 7 just received a decent sized update, which has added new events, as well as rebal­ances the in-game economy.

Fans crit­i­cized the game for a recent patch that sig­nif­i­cant­ly reduced pay­outs for races, with devel­op­er Polypho­ny Dig­i­tal address­ing the issue in March by promis­ing to make Gran Tur­is­mo 7 more reward­ing for the play­ers. The lat­est patch over­hauls the game’e econ­o­my, increas­ing rac­ing rewards for sev­er­al World Cir­cuit, Arcade, and Cus­tom races, along with an increase to the pay­out for the Dai­ly Race modes.

With this, the max­i­mum cap for in-game cred­its has been raised to 100 mil­lion Cr. Even more con­tent has also been added, such as the World Tour­ing Car 600 Tokyo Express­way East Clock­wise, World Tour­ing Car 700 24 Heures du Mans Rac­ing Cir­cuit, and the World Tour­ing Car 800 Sar­den­ga Track A.

Tweaks were also made to a num­ber of car physics, race tracks, and graph­i­cal fea­tures. AI oppo­nents have a fight­ing chance now after chang­ing tires dur­ing a wet weath­er event, while the image qual­i­ty of smoke in race pho­tos has been improved, and the Good­wood track will be more lenient on play­ers when they cut the white line.

You can check out the full patch below, as seen on the Gran Tur­is­mo 7 web­site:
