Gran Turismo 7 and the team at Polyphony Digital haven’t been having the best run with the game. An update last week caused the game to be unplayable for over 24-hours, and that same update lowered the amount of credits players could earn as rewards. In a game where earning credits was already a valid concern, and one I too brought up in my reviewPolyphony Digital has posted an update on the issue tonight, looking to rectify player grievances as soon as possible and get the wheels of GT7 back on track. 

Over on the PlayStation BlogKazunori Yamauchi thanked fans for the continued support and feedback on the game and apologized for the frustration that the last update caused. He then went on to list several updates that are coming as soon as April and a $1 million credit pack that players can redeem. 

To redeem the $1 million credits, you must own a physical or digital version of the game and log in between now and April 25th at 7 PM AEDT. 

An update is also coming in early April that will add increased rewards for races and other ways to win credits. 

  • Increase rewards in the events in the latter half of the World Circuits by approximately 100% on average.

  • Addition of high rewards for clearing the Circuit Experience in all Gold/All Bronze results.

  • Increase of rewards in Online Races.

  • Include a total of eight new one-hour Endurance Race events to Missions. These will also have higher reward settings.

  • Increase the upper limit of non-paid credits in player wallets from 20M Cr. to 100M Cr.

  • Increase the quantity of Used and Legend cars on offer at any given time.

Yamauchi also listed several updates that the team are working on, but a planned window for these wasn’t listed.

  • Increase the payout value of limited time rewards as we develop as a live service.

  • Further World Circuit event additions.

  • Addition of Endurance Races to Missions including 24-hour races.

  • Ranking battles in Online Time Trials will be made more advantageous with rewards. earned based on achieving a time that is within +1%, +2%, +3%, and +5% of top time.

  • Make it so cars can be sold.

As someone who’s spent the last few episodes of our PlayStation Podcast, Platinum Explosion, complaining about the Gran Turismo 7 credits issue, I think this is a solid step in the right direction. But what do you think? Let me know in the comment section below.
