Gran Turismo 7 has been out for nearly two weeks now. While GT7 is a significant improvement over GT Sport there are still issues that need resolving. Thankfully, Polyphony is supporting GT7 with regular updates that fix issues and add new content. The latest patch, update 1.07, has been announced, and it fixes a myriad of issues.
Latest news - Extended server maintenance delays 1.07 update
Gran Turismo 7's 1.07 update was originally scheduled to go live today. However, Polyphony has found an issue with a patch that needs resolving. As a result, the 1.07 patch isn't live yet as server maintenance has been extended.
Polyphony will announce when server maintenance is completed "as soon as possible."
Dirt track license tests fixed
After last the last update, the wrong tyres were fitted in the dirt track License Tests. As a result, these license tests were impossible to complete. Thankfully, update 1.07 resolves this issue.
This means the correct tyres are now fitted in license tests A-8, IB-5, IA-3, and S-5. Polyphony still needs to fix the dirt driving physics, though, because the off-road racing is a mess.
Additionally, a new Broadcast Mode enables players to remove music tracks that could trigger copyright warnings on YouTube. This can be found in the Sound Volume settings and will be useful for streamers.
You can find out all the changes in the patch notes below.
