Sony will be re-releasing Gran Turismo 5 this year, as a ‘complete’ “Academy Edition” to celebrate the recent GT Academy competition, which will contain a number of additional extras previously available as paid-for premium DLC.
The Academy Edition will feature:
- Car Pack
- Car Pack 2
- Car Pack 3
- Course Pack
- Course Pack 2
- Special Paint Pack
- Racing Gear Pack
- The Nissan GTR driven in this year’s Nurburgring 24 hour race by Kazunori Yamauchi.
And speaking of Kaz: “GT Academy has captured the imagination of many Gran Turismo fans,” he said. “It is exciting to watch what Lucas Ordóñez, Jordan Tresson, Jann Mardenborough and Bryan Heitkotter in the USA, are achieving in their new racing careers with Nissan.”
“People can now see that it is possible to make the switch from being a fast gamer to become a real racing driver. We wanted to mark the tremendous success of GT Academy with the very latest version of GT5,” he said.
The Academy Edition will be released in September for just £20.
