Prologue Update Features New Cars
Franchise creator Kazunori Yamauchi has hinted in the past that Gran Turismo 5 may not see the light of day until 2010. However, we'll still be receiving updates to the ever-expanding playable demo, Gran Turismo 5: Prologue.
And one of those updates has just arrived. According to the official PlayStation blog, three new cars and several gameplay enhancements have been made, which means it's time to fire up the game once more. First up is the GT by Citroen - the fancy car pictured here - which was unveiled yesterday at the Paris Motor Show. It's "the result of a groundbreaking collaboration between French automaker Citroen and Polyphony Digital," and you'll be able to purchase this bad boy for 1 million credits. ...yeah, get driving. The other two new cars are the Ferrari California for 300,000 credits and the Lotus Evora for 100,000. You can check out the pics for both over at the blog, and you'll also notice a brief list of gameplay tweaks and upgrades.
During the Time Trial events, speed penalties have been removed, but don't get your hopes up just yet. Instead of the time penalty when the infraction occurs, it will simply invalidate your lap time. Polyphony is also fiddling with the difficulty levels for the races, and they will also give you more money if you finish 1st. That's good news, considering what the GT costs... Lastly, they will offer "improved responsiveness when using the wireless controller, and improved sound volume balance for sound effects and music for a better racing experience." In other words, this is a major update, and you can't miss it. Just remember, that upon downloading, all rankings, arcade trial times and drift trial records, as well as any customizations you've made to your favorite vehicles, will be reset. Awww...
But that's okay; Prologue just got better. Again.
