The last Thursday of the month is here, and so are the Gran Turismo 7 Update 1.34 patch notes! This month's update sees a trio of new cars enter the game but unfortunately no new circuits.
However, there are some awesome changes to tuning and a much-requested alteration to engine swaps after 14 months of frustration. So what's changed in Gran Turismo 7? Let's take a look!
Gran Turismo 7 Update 1.34
The Alfa Romeo Guilia Sprint GT Veloce '67 & Nissan GT-R NISMO (R32) '90 will both be purchasable from Legend Cars when the list turns over on 25th May. The Greening auto Company Maverick can be purchased as soon as you download the update though.
Along with three new cars are a few new World Circuit events, including two new Super Formula races at Autopolis and Road Atlanta and a Sunday Cup Classic at Monza.
However, the biggest change is to engine swaps. The ultimate tuning part, engine swaps were locked behind the frustrating roulette ticket system but no longer.
Once you hit Collector Level 50 you can head over to GT Auto and, on eligible vehicles, purchase and equip new engines from different cars. These aren't cheap, but it opens up a whole world of possibilities and removes one of the most frustrating grind mechanics from the game.
What else is in this patch? Let's take a look at the full patch notes.
