Gran Turismo 7 Update 1.18 Live Alongside Patch Notes

A new Gran Turismo 7 update is live alongside patch notes that reveal everything said update does. With update 1.18, Polyphony Digital has gone ahead and made many changes to the game, but nothing substantial. In fact, each tweak by itself is pretty inconsequential but added all together, it's, at least, an appreciable update. Nonetheless, there's no new content and there are no new features.

While we have the patch notes for the update, what we don't have are the file sizes for the update on PS4 and PS5. In other words, we don't know how long the update may take to download or how much space it will take up on your hard drive. What we can note though is that the update isn't very large in terms of number of things it does and it doesn't have any new content, both of which point towards it being a smaller file size.

Below, you can check out the patch notes for yourself, courtesy of PlayStation:
