Gran Turismo 7 patch rebalances in-game rewards following backlash

Last month's launch of Gran Turismo 7 wasn't as successful as anticipated. The game quickly drew criticism for its always-online requirement, microtransactions and in-game rewards balance. Polyphony Digital announced plans to rebalance things in a new update and this week, that update finally arrived. 

As announced last month, the latest Gran Turismo 7 patch rebalances the in-game economy, increasing rewards for completing races, increasing the number of non-paid credits each user can hold at once, and giving all early owners a boost in credits to help them buy their next car.

With these updates in place, players shouldn't have to put quite as many hours into the game to obtain new vehicles, which should also ease up some of the criticism around the game's premium in-game currency packs. Unfortunately, the game does still require an internet connection to play and an offline mode has not yet been announced.

Following patch 1.11, some new positive user reviews can be found on Metacritic, although the game's overall user score has not recovered from last month's wave of negative reviews.
