The latest Gran Turismo Sport update is now available, and it brings with it a number of fixes for the recently released racing game. Those that own Thrustmaster steering wheels will be glad to know that issues impacting both the T500RS and TH8A have been addressed. It also fixed a crashing issue that would occur when players participated in drift events while using a car “featuring an exterior livery created with a custom color chip.”
View the full Gran Turismo Sport update 1.03 patch notes below:
- Fixed an issue where participating in a Drift Trial with a car featuring an exterior livery created with a custom color chip (a color chip created in the Livery editor) would result in the game crashing after the result screen.
- Fixed an issue where excessive force feedback was applied when understeering using the THRUSTMASTER T500RS steering controller.
- Addressed an issue wherein the THRUSTMASTER TH8A ‘H pattern shifter’ was not properly recognized when connected to a compatible steering wheel controller.
Other improvements and adjustments
- The controller steering sensitivity of the DUALSHOCK®4 wireless controller has been increased in order to improve handling during oversteering and drifting.
- The adjustment range for a steering wheel controller’s force feedback has been broadened: it is now possible to decrease maximum torque on steering wheels with strong motor torque.
- Various other issues.
For more on the racing game, check out my Gran Turismo Sport review. Here’s a snippet of what I had to say:
One’s enjoyment of Gran Turismo Sport will solely be determined by whether the prospect of learning different tracks and competing in three different online races per day is exciting to them. If you can’t get into that gameplay loop then you’ll want to play something else, as the single-player content is extremely limited, and even the online offerings aren’t rich with features. GT Sport does a few things exceptionally well (you won’t find a better looking and playing racing game), but it ultimately left me wanting more content out of it. Hopefully over time, either through updates or DLC, the size and scope of it will be expanded, but for now players can enjoy some incredible racing, even if it’s quite limited.
Gran Turismo Sport is available now on PlayStation 4.
