Gran Tourismo 5 Gets DLC Next Week

The Playstation Blog just announced some new DLC coming to Gran Tourismo 5. Next week, users will be able to purchase the Car Pack 2 for $3.99 and will have access to new vehicles, parts, modes, and several fixes to the game.

Cars included:

  • 2011 Mini Cooper S
  • 2010 Volkswagen
  • Golf VI R
  • 2010 Volkswagen Scirocco R
  • Improved 2012 Nissan GT-R Black edition R35
  • Users who download the 2.02 update will also receive the Toyota FT-86 2012

Those who purchased the first DLC from October will unlock the Gran Turismo Racing Kart 125 SP, five "Car Refresh cards" in the game for free, as well as the 'Family Upgrade' unlocks.

"This means that 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. Family members or friends using the same PS3 can all use the courses and cars. Note that the upgrade doesn’t apply to the Racing Gear Pack or Special Paint Pack, and starting next week, new purchases will not have the restriction in place." – Playstation Blog

From the Playstation Blog:

  • 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
