There will be four scheduled maintenance periods for Gran Turismo 5 between now and the end of September, and Polyphony Digital have kindly announced the dates in advance, allowing us to spend the time remembering what our friends and families look like instead of racing. (That’s obviously not true – there’s still Forza, iRacing, WRC, Dirt, Need for Speed etc).
The details of what will be included have not been released, and as August will only see a small update for bug fixes, don’t expect any major DLC or updates to necessarily appear unless something sneaks out in after the September dates.
The maintenance dates for Gran Turismo 5 are:
- August 23, 2011 10:00-16:00 EST
- August 29, 2011 22:00-23:00 EST
- September 6, 2011 10:00-18:00 EST
- September 13, 2011 10:00-18:00 EST
So now you know when to schedule a day with your family or friends.
