The Gran Turismo franchise stands among the giants in the racing genre of video games. Gran Turismo 7 is based around a genuine race circuit experience that you stumble upon in professional sports unlikened to the Forza series, which has a more open-world arcade style. The complex controls amalgamated with next-gen graphics add to the allure of the Gran Turismo franchise.
GT7 is the first multi-console installment in the series. Grand Turismo 7 was critically-acclaimed upon release and made rounds worldwide. Despite receiving criticism for grinding and microtransactions, the title sold like hot cakes worldwide.
Grand Turismo 7 has seen a variety of significant updates over the months. The latest update, 1.18, is out now, which is relatively diminutive in comparison, but it crushes a variety of bugs this time around. Minor but recurring bugs have been dealt with in the latest patch.
The recent patch of 374MB size can now be downloaded and installed to enjoy the GT7 experience. One of the most prominent glitches that were hunted down includes the multiple tickets glitch, which could be gained repeatedly from the extras menu.
Moreover, issues occurring when changing gear ratios, a rather explicit save data bug, and steering angle problems when utilizing the Logitech G923 wheel controller have all been curbed to enhance the experience for all players.
