Gran Turismo 5 Getting More DLC and Update 2.02 Next Week

The second round of DLC for Gran Turismo 5 is on the way next week, bringing a new car pack alongside an update that brings a variety of interface and gameplay tweaks. Car Pack 2 adds new rides like the 2011 Mini Cooper S, 2010 Volkswagen Golf VI R, 2010 Volkswagen Scirocco R, and the new 2012 Nissan GT-R Black Edition R35, and anyone who downloads the update 2.02 will also get the Toyota FT-86 2012 for free.

Also, as a special gift to those who downloaded the first GT5 DLC, there'll be the Gran Turismo Racing Kart 125 SP and five New Car Refresh cards unlocked for free as part of this second DLC pack. Refresh Cards return a car to a 'good-as-new' state without affecting any of your modifications or customisation. Update 2.02 meanwhile, offers tweaks to the following:

  • Users can now change wheels on Standard cars
  • The settings sheets will include a new ‘copy’ feature
  • In GT Auto, players will be able to see how the oil changes, aerodynamic parts, engine overhauls, and racing modifications will affect performance points and engine power, before and after their application
  • Free coupons have been added that allow you to wash cars, change oil, overhaul your engine, or refresh the car body in GT Auto (10 coupons will be distributed for free to each of those who have downloaded the 2.02 update)
  • Pressing the Square button in the car coupon selection screen of the Car Delivery will now allow you to exchange all car coupons at once, rather than doing one at a time
  • In screens where the [Garage] and [Driver List] buttons are displayed in the A/B Spec events, Special Events, and Seasonal Events, pressing the Square button will now show the [Garage], and pressing the Triangle button will bring up the drivers list
  • In My Lounge, the room settings will feature a new ‘Max. number of participants’ setting
  • In the event selection screen of seasonal events, there are now star marks that show the number of Gold Trophies attained in each event
  • Improved racing sound effects
  • Elements of the steering assist controls (used when using certain controllers on Racing Karts) have been tweaked

Finally, those who purchased the course and/or vehicle DLC released in October will be able to download Family Upgrade unlocks for free from the store.  So, if you bought the Racing Car Pack, Course Pack, or the ‘Complete Pack’ that contained both of these, by downloading the free Family Upgrade items, "the content will now be accessible to more than just the user account that purchased the content".

The Gran Turismo 5 Car Pack 2 and Update 2.02 is out on December 20th in North America for $3.99 and December 21st in Europe for €3.99.

I love this game but why oh why can we not get ferraris, lamboginis, BMW's and Mercs in our DLC instead of these cars? i mean come on are we going to use these cars much? i hope for future DLC we get alot better cars a few tracks and some more A-Spec races! The only thing positive about the DLC is the price!

Oh come on guys, If you are a true car lover like me, you'll appreciate the cars you recieve with this DLC. If you want the DLC for the sake of it, but don't like the cars, then don't buy it, for God's sake.

It's going to take me hours and hours to change the wheels on all of my standard cars. But I can't wait! I hope we can paint them too.

@1 I agree, I love the game but the cars they are adding just aren't exactly very sought after but at least it isnt Skylines or MX5s lol then again the only good ones there are the Nissan GTR, the VW Scirocco R and the VW Golf VI R. The go-kart is a novelty that is fun for a couple of races the FT86 looks good but will probably be crap and mini cooper sucks its a hair dressers car, PD add more Fordies, Vauxhalls, Mercs, Lambos and Plymouths.

Car pack sucks, but it sounds like a decent enough update.

@4: I'd like to see a wider array of vintage American muscle cars (more representation of Pontiac, Oldsmobiles -- at least a fucking 442, Chevys that aren't Vettes or Camaros -- how about the 1970 Nova SS?), personally, and I'd like downloadable European cars to point more towards brands like Koenigsegg and less towards this Mini bullshit. Stop trying to wrangle a female user base and start putting some real cars in ther already.

Finally stats to show how aero parts effect the cars this should of been implemented at the start one thing Forza has over GT5 until now was how parts effect the cars not by points but buy power ratio etc graphs

How many GB does this game have? I would be surprise if this have more than 12 GB

I need to buy a 500 GB HD for my machine! I have 14GB (I have an 80GB) free left :(

Great additions.

I know this may sound stupid to some people, but one of the new additions I'm really excited about, is finally being able to change the rims on standard cars.

Bought the first, and will buy the second DLC.

Can't wait.
