If you’re a fan of the Gran Turismo series, you’ll be glad to know that Sony plan on rolling out a major patch for Gran Turismo 5, next week. A fresh batch of DLC is also expected to hit alongside the pack consisting of the Car Pack 2 that will set you back by $3.99. This DLC will include the 2010 Volkswagen Scirocco R, the 2011 Mini Cooper S, the 2010 Volkswagen Golf VI R, and the 2012 Nissan GT-R Black Edition R35.

Oooh shiny

Oooh shiny!

And here’s the list of tweaks this patch will bring to the table:

  • The 2012 Toyota FT-86 (goes into your collection for free)
  • 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

Thanks to Gameinformer for the heads up.
