As expected, the Gran Turismo 7 Update 1.25 patch notes are now live and the update is ready to download on PS4 and PS5.
While the cars were teased at the weekend and then revealed earlier in the week, there is more than just four new rides for players in this update.
While no new tracks have been added, there are new events and a change to the physics of the game. So let's take a look at what racers can expect from the new update.
Gran Turismo 7 Update 1.25
The new update is ready to go and brings more than normal to the game, which has been struggling to retain player attention.
A new Cafe Menu Book has been added which brings some much-needed events to the Nordschleife, Spa, and Goodwood among other tracks.
There is also a pretty big change to the physics simulation within Gran Turismo 7.
Tyre heat generation and wear have been adjusted, along with suspension geometry for each car and initial values for suspension parts. That means you may well find your favourite cars handle a little differently following this patch,
PP has also been adjusted for some cars, so you may need to re-tune to get under those event caps.
