Upcoming Gran Turismo Sport update will add soggy weather

Bring your brolly

Possibly in a move to make British players more immersed in an authentic driving experience, Polyphony Digital will be adding a new “wet weather” effect to its 2017 racing title Gran Turismo Sport.

A recent video posted by the developer lets us see the grim conditions in effect on the game’s Red Bull Ring track. In the video, professional simulation driver Coque Lopez braves the rain to showcase how this weather will effect the game’s handling, so don’t go gunning through puddles like nobody’s business, lest you find yourself wrapped around a stand full of innocent onlookers. (Unlikely, I know.)


No specific date has been given for the new weather update to arrive in-game, but its shouldn’t take too long before dark clouds start forming, so better take your coat.

Gran Turismo Sport is available now on PS4.
