PS3Blog.net writes: Finally, the GT5 Damage Patch has arrived, and it’s, surprisingly, not that big either, weighing in at only 149MB in size.
We all know that Kazunori Yamauchi – creator of the Gran Turismo franchise – promised to improve the game via a torrent of updates and patches. But it’s great to see that his promises are actually taking shape. Just days earlier, Patch 1.01 went live. And now, Patch 1.03. The patch apparently adds damage settings for races played online.
The newly available settings for mechanical damage are:
- None – No mechanical damage.
- Light – Mechanical parts can be damaged, but will “automatically be repaired after a short time has passed.”
- Heavy – Mechanical damage will be more severe, and can only be repaired by making a pit stop. Damaged parts will be indicated with on-screen icons.
Great to see that Polyphony Digital is already fixing the numerous bugs and glitches in the game in order to further enrich the experience!
