Gran Turismo 5 has just received a monster sized update of 600mb that makes the game even more realistic and adds the GT academy as well. Other features include seasonal events, a new “hot car dealer,” custom background music, streamlined license test menus and mechanical damage in the game’s practice mode.
The Seasonal Events area has been added to the main GT Life screen where you can now easily participate in official online events that will be open for a limited time only. Each event has specific entry and race conditions, and completing events earns you rewards and experience points and good results will help you move up the global leader-boards in the time trials and drift trial events.
A new specialised dealership called the Hot Car Dealer has also been added to the main GT Life screen, making it much easier to find popular and rare used cars compared to the standard Used Car Dealer.
You can also now earn increased rewards for winning races in both A-Spec and B-Spec mode through the end of January only.
