Today a new Gran Turismo 5 patch has been rolled-out across the PlayStation Network, this is called the Spec 2.0 patch and it changes quite a lot in the game, so buckle yourself up while we give you a run though some of the changes.
Let’s start with what we think are the most significant changes. You can now save your game during a race, navigate a more responsive user interface, take advantage of new interior views and you have the ability to save multiple car settings. We are also told that users can control the weather change feature and when watching-back replays you can now rewind and fast forward.
As usual there are lots of fixes “under-the-bonnet” (excuse the pun), however we think you will be most excited to hear that the Logitech G25/G27 Steering wheel is now supported and there are more cars to race with (the Nissan GT-R N24 Schulze Motorsport and almost a dozen 2011 model NASCAR cars).
When racing you should now noticed that your foes have improved AI, not only this but the physics engine should bring more realism to the game. You can see some of the less impressive changes cover at DualShockers – let us know if you spotted a change which was not listed in the patch notes.
The patch itself may take some time to download today as the servers are taking a hammering at the moment, if you experience any major problems be sure to leave us a comments below.
Note: We have just received all of the juicy details regarding some DLC packs which are headed to GT5, come back later for all of the info!
