One thing that concerned me, when playing Gran Turismo 6, was a distinct lack of Special Events to make the best use of the wide variety of cars and disciplines that the game could potentially cover. It was only on vague promises of more content that I pinned my hopes, and already Polyphony are delivering on this.
Today sees the 1.02 patch released, coming in at a bit over 1GB, and this adds the latest installments of the Red Bull collaboration that started with GT5. This patch adds access to the first two events of the Red Bull X Challenge Special Event, featuring a Red Bull Kart and the Red Bull X2014 Junior, with the ‘Standard’ and ‘Fan’ cars to be unlocked in the future.
1.02 also addresses concerns about the in-game economy, with the return of the consecutive login bonus and Career Mode winnings increased, to help people be able to afford those cars they want just that little bit quicker.
You will now only need the National B license in order to take part in the Seasonal Events, and there will also be extra events that rewards cars as prizes. On top of this, the Seasonal Events themselves are getting new entries, that add a few more challenges for you to test yourself against and more interesting opportunities to earn cash than just grinding away in the career!
Finally, if you took part in GT Academy 2013, you will receive a Nissan GT-R Nismo GT3 N24 as a gift.
