06-10-2011, 08:32 AM
Coming this Tuesday 11th October, GT5 will have a major update, and this time, I am sure you will be happy with what is in it! :)
First off, every 'standard' car will now have an interior view, with varying detail depending on which car you are driving.
Secondly, and more importantly, you will now be able to save your progress during endurance races and go back to the game whenever you wish! :)
11 new NASCAR cars are being added, as well as improvements on the weather settings.
Also, additional features:
Photo Travel Mode Updates
New features in the Online Lounge
Improved and enhanced user interface
Shortening of load times and improved menu response
Improved car physics simulation, further evolved AI
Support for the Logitech G25/G27 steering wheels
Now I don't know about you, but I am really looking forward to this!...and my free Red Bull X2010 also :P
