First and foremost, it’s worth knowing this update comes in the form of an over 3GB package, so it could take a while to download and install on your console. It’s one of the largest updates released recently. Still, at some level, that makes perfect sense as Polyphony Digital has introduced the new Olympic Virtual Series projected to kick off later this week.

Back in April, it was announced that Gran Turismo Sport had been picked as a title to participate in the Olympic Virtual Series, with the event to kick off this week on May 13 and run until June 23.

Everybody knew from the very beginning that this new update was supposed to include content related to this new event. In the official release notes, the dev team explains that the main change introduced by version 1.65 is related to the Olympic Virtual Series – Motor Sport Event.

No specifics have been provided, but given the size of the update, there’s a chance it includes everything from sounds to graphics content and other media.

The new update also includes some extra polishing for the penalty system, with the official changelog revealing that this feature has been refined to work properly if a player experiences connectivity problems.

The penalty judgement algorithm has been adjusted so that severe penalties are no longer issued due to differences in internet network environments,” the changelog reads.

Like all the other updates, version 1.65 also introduces additional balance of performance improvements for certain car models, as well as a series of other bug fixes and optimizations. All are aimed at improving the overall experience with Gran Turismo Sport for all players.

The game update is already live for everybody on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5.
