Gran Turismo 7 Spec II update

Gran Turismo 7 Gets 4-Player Split-Screen For PS5, 7 New Cars, And More In Free Update

Gran Turismo 7 is getting its biggest update tomorrow in the form of Spec II (a.k.a update 1.40). The content drop, which is free, adds a new cooperative mode, seven new cars, a fresh track, and more.

Perhaps the update’s biggest addition is four-player local split-screen. Unfortunately for PS4 players, this option is only available on PS5. Speaking of PS5-only features, those players can enjoy taking on Gran Turismo Sophy, which developer Polyphony Digital describes as a “prototype revolutionary racing AI agent” 

Spec II also adds the snowy Lake Louise track. Set in a Canadian ski resort, it comes in three variants: long track, short track, and tri-oval. New Master License events are coming and the update also adds quality-of-life features, such as a dashboard that tracks player progression.

Of course, new vehicles are always exciting, and here are the seven joining the roster:

  • Dodge Charger R/T 426 Hemi '68
  • Dodge Challenger SRT Demon '18
  • Lexus LFA '10
  • Mercedes-Benz 190 E 2.5-16 Evolution II '91
  • NISMO 400R '95
  • Porsche 911 GT3 RS (992) '22
  • Tesla Model 3 Performance '23

Spec II adds a host of smaller additions, such as new Cafe menus and new photo mode options, and you can read a complete breakdown by reading the blog post on the Gran Turismo website. You can download the update on November 2. For more on Gran Turismo 7, check out our review
