Gran Turismo 7 Update 1.16 Patch Notes: Force feedback fix arrives

Polyphony gave us short notice about it, but the Gran Turismo 7 Update 1.16 patch notes are now live!

What can players expect when they log on today? Let's find out!

Gran Turismo 7 Update 1.16

The key part of this relatively small quality of life patch is wheel force feedback.

Polyphony nerfed the strength of force feedback in the last update, spoiling the thing GT7 does best - its gameplay.

Now things are back to normal. Bar a few combinations of cars and wheels, force feedback strength has reverted to what it was after Update 1.13.

There are also a few other tweaks going on in Update 1.16.

Patch Notes

Here are the completed Patch Notes for Update 1.16.

Car Settings

  • Fixed an issue where High Compression Pistons and Turbochargers were installed at the same time if certain inputs were performed.

World Circuits

  • Fixed an issue where selecting 'Rivals Settings' > 'Rivals Selection' > 'Random' in a [Custom Race] and starting with a Toyota GR010 HYBRID '21 would result in a one-make race.
  • Rival cars’ wheel colors now match those displayed on the thumbnails in Lightweight K-Cup.
  • Fixed an issue where the time from the point of pit entry along with the actual pitstop time would be counted on some tracks such as Deep Forest.
  • Fixed an issue where changing car from 'Settings' > 'Change Car' in a [Time Trial] or [Drift Trial] event screen did not change the car's thumbnail on the Top Screen.

  • Fixed an issue where selecting 'Race Settings' > 'Start Type' > 'Grid Start with False Start Check' in Lobby would result in the actual start times of each car to differ.
  • Fixed an issue where entering a room during a race in some instances would cause the background to disappear and the game to freeze when leaving the room.
