Server maintenance for Polyphony Digital’s Gran Turismo 7 has concluded and update 1.11 is live. After reducing credit rewards from numerous races and facing backlash for the same, the new update buffs rewards all around. First, the rewards for the latter half of World Circuit events has been increased. There are also three new race events – World Touring Car 600 Tokyo Expressway East Clockwise, World Touring Car 700 24 Heures du Mans Racing Circuit and World Touring Car 800 Sardegna Road Track A.
If you clear all of the circuit layouts with Bronze or Gold results, then you’ll receive rewards for the same. Those who have already done so can go to the sector selection screen and exit to receive this. Daily Races and Lobbies have also seen the amount of rewards increased. For Missions, “The Human Comedy” has been added which features endurance races lasting for one hour.
These become available at Collector Level 23 and each event provides up to 1.2 million Credits. The maximum cap for Credits has also been increased to 100 million Credits. Any new Invitations received for purchasing some of the more luxurious vehicles now have a 30 day time limit instead of 14 days. Check out some of the patch notes below and the full patch notes here.
