A new update has been released for Gran Turismo 7 which fixes a number of bugs and other issues.
The version 1.18 patch is not a major one, and as such doesn’t include any new content such as cars.
It does, however, fix an issue some players were having with downloading cloud-stored saved data on another console that didn’t already have Gran Turismo 7 save data on it.
It also fixes a number of other bugs, including issues in the car settings, music replay, GT Auto , Café and Circuit Experience modes, as well as an issue with the Logitech G923 steering wheel.
Gran Turismo 7’s last major update was released on June 23 and added three new cars – the Suzuki V6 Escudo Pikes Peak Special ’98, the Suzuki Vision Gran Turismo (Gr.3 Version) and the 1932 Ford Roadster.
It also added the Watkins Glen International, described by PlayStation as “a historic road course found in New York State, roughly 260 miles northwest of New York City, which opened in 1956 and is surrounded by rolling hills.”
In addition to the new cars and the new circuit, extra menus were added to the game’s Café mode.
The full patch notes for the new update are as follows:
