Hello everyone. Today is a big day for anyone who counts themselves as a petrolhead, gearhead or any other idiom you might care to mention – it’s also potentially quite an exciting day if you don’t, as what’s incoming may well convert you *winks*.
So what’s the reason? PlayStation Store today will see the launch of a brand new set of DLC for Gran Turismo 5. Not only that, but also in stores today is Gran Turismo 5: Academy Edition, the definitive version of the original GT5 game.
This new edition of the game comes with more than 30 extra vehicles and karts, including series creator Kazunori Yamauchi’s Nissan GTR which he and the inaugural GT Academy winner Lucas Ordonez took to a class win at this year’s Nurburgring 24H race.
Plus, you’ll also get the chance to get to grips with new courses, such as Spa Francorchamps, and additional extras including an exclusive competition – GT Academy Challenge where you could win a VIP trip to Le Mans 2013 for you and a companion. Not to mention the special 25% discount voucher for the lovely garments to be found within the GT Boutique!
On top of that GT5: Academy Edition includes the full set of functionality updates since launch that have helped finesse and improve upon GT5, helping it to become one of the best-selling racing games of this console generation.
The DLC also launching today alongside GT5: Academy Edition delivers the Subaru BRZ S ’12, Nissan GT-R N24 GT Academy ’12 (included with the GT5: Academy Edition) and Honda Weider HSV-010 (SUPER GT) ’11 race car.
As if all this tremendous news wasn’t enough there’s a brand new functionality update out today to get your hands on too.
GT5: Academy Edition is available at a suggested retail price of €29.99/£20.41 and the DLC will be priced at €0.99/£0.79 each – more news on both can be found right now at gran-turismo.com. See you on the track!
