has announced Grand Tour 7 Will receive some changes in the amount of in-game currency earned through tournament rewards.Additionally, to quell some of the anger following a recent post-release patch that caused the reward system to malfunction, players who log in between now and April 25 will receive 1 million points for free
All of this comes from an official post on the PlayStation Blog by Polyphony Digital President Kazunori Yamauchi, in which he thanked the community for their support of the game, and commented on the recent inability to access the game and the inability to communicate with players in readjusting the reward system to the current before unwelcome status.
According to the blog post, the patch in question is an attempt to fix “inconsistent bonus payouts in some World Tour events.” It has been claimed that in order to do this, it is necessary to “recalculate the entire reward system”, which in turn leads to the disadvantage players are currently in.
To pull it back from the brink to some extent, the following changes will come in an early April patch:
- Increased rewards for the second half of the World Tour by an average of approximately 100%.
- Added high rewards to Tour EXP for clearing all Gold/Bronze results.
- Increased rewards for online competitions.
- Includes a total of eight new One Hour Enduro missions. These will also have higher reward settings.
- Increased the upper limit of unpaid credits in player wallets from 20M Cr. to 100M chrome.
- Increase the number of used and legendary cars at any given time.
Additionally, it has been revealed that there will be other changes at some point in the future, although no date has been provided for when those changes will be added. These include increased payouts related to limited-time rewards, additional races including 24-hour races and online time trials, and the ability to sell cars.
Whether these announced changes to the Gran Turismo 7 will go a long way in fixing the bangs and scratches that have accumulated in the racing title in recent days is uncertain. It’s also a shame, because based on our review, this game would have been a great game and a “must-have for hardcore racing fans, and it’s such a great game that it might actually turn some casual gamers away. Become a real petrol head.”
It’s conceivable how many of these casual players were meant to gorge on what Gran Turismo 7 had to offer, but due to recent glitches, they stopped and went.
