Also added is the Gran Turismo Sophy Race Together mode, which allows players to race against the AI Gran Turismo Sophy.

The AI is a "revolutionary superhuman racing agent" developed between Sony AI, Sony Interactive Entertainment and Polyphony Digital. The mode will be available as a time-limited in-game event from today until the end of March, with players able to race against GT Sophy across four circuits of increasing difficulty.

The classic Grand Valley Highway 1 returns from the original game, released 25 years ago, but with significantly improved visuals as players race along its winding seaside roads.

Five new cars are included in this update: F1 car Honda RA272 '65; the high-tech Italdesign Exeneo Vision Gran Turismo car in both Street and Off-Road modes; Citroën's historic DS 21 Pallas '70; and the classic Porsche 911 Carrera RS (901) '73.

Lastly, drift photos are now supported, so you can take shots while cornering at high speed.
