While we’re still a week away from the big batch of downloadable content for Gran Turismo 5, the free 2.0 update drops today, delivering car interiors, 2011 NASCAR racers, and tons of fixes and tweaks, just in time to turn racing fans’ heads away from Forza 4.
Available today as a free downloadable update, version 2.0 of Gran Turismo 5 is aimed at giving fans of the series just about everything they’ve wanted since the game launched back in November of last year. Things like interior views for every vehicle in the game’s extensive roster, and not just the handful that were available at launch. Or the ability to pose your custom driver with your car in photo mode, full support for the Logitech G25 and G27 Racing Wheels, and the ability to save in the middle of long race events; these are the sort of things players would have liked to have seen when the game came out, but better late than never, right?
Right? I mean, Gran Turismo fans had a choice: Keep complaining about delays, or get an unfinished game. We went for the latter, and now, nearly a year later, the game is just about finished. Go team.
I just hope the update wasn’t rushed to make it out in time for Forza 4‘s release. I’d hate to have to wait another year.
