Polyphony Digital celebrates the 25th anniversary of the Gran Turismo IP by rewarding Gran Turismo 7 players with in-game content.
Gran Turismo recently celebrated its 25th birthday. Developer Polyphony Digital is celebrating this milestone by giving Gran Turismo 7 players in-game content as a special way of saying thank you to the player base for supporting the game.
Gran Turismo is one of the most well known racing simulators out there, & it’s known for its great soundtracks & design-changing car mechanics. Gran Turismo was a household name for PlayStation. However, since Forza began to change the way the racing simulator genre is seen today, the GT series has gradually declined. But in spite of that, Gran Turismo 7 was said to be a return to the glory days for the GT player base, & after a successful launch, it looked like it was going to be. However, the game’s lack of content & flaws, such as poor single-player campaign design & car monetization, force players into using microtransactions to obtain the best cars.
Fortunately, Polyphony is still trying its best to make Gran Turismo 7 a great experience for the player base. And with the 25th anniversary of the series, the developer is rewarding players with in-game content for Gran Turismo 7. Players will be able to increase their rewards for any race in sports mode, allowing them to earn five times as many credits for each race completed. Additionally, players can also earn more credits from online time trials. And this increase in credits comes at a great time as players can now purchase the new cars added to the game in the recent 1.26 update for Gran Turismo 7.
Furthermore, players who tune into the live streams for Gran Turismo 7 will receive a gift, & if they also tune in for the world finals & Respond the day 4 question, they will be rewarded with a Ferrari Vision Gran Turismo. The latest the players can tune in to get these rewards is December 4th, five days before Gran Turismo 7 is up for Best Racing Game of the Year at The Game Awards.
Overall, this is a nice way to celebrate the anniversary of a beloved & iconic franchise, as it provides more incentive for players to play & gives the player base a small “thank you” gift for sticking around. By the same token, the gesture is a nice touch from the developers & may even pull in newcomers to the racing sim genre.
Despite the rewards, players are still dissatisfied with the current state of Gran Turismo 7. The players are happy & grateful for the rewards, but the main problems with the microtransactions & the issues with the single-player campaign for GT7 have not been fixed or addressed.
Gran Turismo 7 is available now on PS4 & PS5.
