Dear Gran Turismo Community,
Thank you for your unwavering support and your constant feedback on Gran Turismo 7, you don’t speak in a vacuum. I would like to apologize for the frustration and confusion caused by our update last week, which not only crashed the servers but resulted in tweaks to the in-game economy being made without providing a clear explanation to our community.
We know this isn’t the Gran Turismo gaming experience you’re used to, and we’ll be showing you a goodwill gesture in the form of a 1 Million Cr unpurchased credit pack. affected*. You will soon find these credits in your accounts. Make sure to log in to the game before April 25 to claim your credits.
The previously implemented update patch was supposed to fix an issue with inconsistent rewards in part of World Circuit Events. But in order to restore the desired balance and provide fairer rewards, based on time invested and on completion, it was necessary to recalculate the entire reward system.
To improve the gaming experience, we will be releasing a huge patch in early April. The number of Events will be increased and we will reset the reward system with better balance throughout the game so that all players can benefit.
Updates coming into effect in early April:
- Increased rewards in the second half of Worlds Circuits events by approximately 100% on average.
- Added high rewards for completing the Circuit Experience with All Gold/All Bronze results.
- Increased rewards in online races.
- Inclusion of a total of 8 new one-hour Endurance Race events in missions. These events will also bring bigger rewards.
- Increased the maximum limit of unpurchased credits in players’ wallets by 20M Cr. at 100M Cr.
- Increased amount of used and legendary cars available at all times.
In addition to these changes, a few additional patches will also be rolled out between now and the end of April that will add new cars, tracks and make other changes.
Finally, we would like to take this opportunity to announce some of the short term updates we are currently working on. We cannot give you an exact date or be more precise at this time, but you will receive all details in advance at www.gran-turismo.com.
- Increase the rewards of limited-time events as we evolve in live service.
- New World Circuit events added.
- Endurance Races added to missions, including 24-hour races.
- Addition of online time trials and rewards depending on the time difference between the player’s time and the shortest time.
- Make sure the cars can be sold.
We want to thank you for your continued patience and valuable feedback as we develop and adapt GT7 to make it as enjoyable and rewarding as possible for as many players as possible. We always want to keep the lines of communication open with our community so that we can work together to build the best racing experience possible.
