New cheat codes have been discovered in Gran Turismo 4 almost two decades after the game’s release. These cheat codes range from passing a license test to getting gold in events. The cheat codes for Gran Turismo 4 were discovered by a France-based Twitter user @Nenkaai. They are known for modding and reverse-engineering games in the Gran Turismo franchise.

They tweeted the details for all 4 cheat codes discovered by them. Those cheat codes include getting 10.000.000 Cr, passing a license, passing a specific license test with gold, and completing any event with gold. For these cheat codes to work the player must first complete 365 in-game days. Nenkaai also posted detail about the combinations needed to activate these cheats.

To get 10.000.000 Cr for free the player must use this combination: Select, Left, Right, Right, Down, Up, Up, Left, Down, Up, Right, Left, Down, L1, R1, Select. Passing a license is also just 12 button presses away. The players can now pass a license without much hassle by using the following combination: Select, R1, Select, R1, Select, L2, L2, R2, R2, L1, Select, Select.

Acing a license test is also a piece of cake in Gran Turismo 4 now. To ace a specific license test players just have to use this 13-button combination: Select, Select, R1, R2, L2, L2, Select, L1, R1, Select, R2, L1, Select. Getting gold in an event was also a piece of work for the players of Gran Turismo 4. But this has been made practically child’s play thanks to the discovery made by Nenkaai.

This cheat doesn’t always work and the player must be on the event course selection menu for this combination to work: Select, L1, Up, Up, Select, R1, Down, Down, Select, L2, Select, R2, Select. The players can also skip 24h races by using this combination. And they will also be able to get prizes without actually completing those races.

The discovery of these cheat codes more than 18 years after Gran Turismo 4’s release is a pleasant surprise for the fans of the franchise. This is also evidence that there is much stuff yet to be uncovered in the game’s code. Many fans were also extremely excited to have the opportunity to replay their childhood game without much of the original grind.

Gran Turismo 4 is a racing video game released originally in Japan in Dec 2004. It is the 4th game in the Gran Turismo series. The game was a huge success as it became one of the best-selling games of 2005. The game is a PlayStation 2-exclusive and third-best-selling game on the play.
