Gran Turismo 6 Update Adds New Seasonal Events, Increases Credit Payout

Posted on December 19, 2013 AT 03:17am

Polyphony has released update 1.02 for Gran Turismo 6, which adds two new Red Bull Racing cars, two new seasonal events, and increases the credit payout from events.

This latest update adds the Red Bull X Challenge and two new cars to the game, the Red Bull Racing Kart and Red Bull X2014 Junior—the first two of four Red Bull Racing cars designed in collaboration with Red Bull F1 chief technical officer Adrian Newey. 2013 Formula 1 World Champion Sebastian Vettel has also been added to the game as a driving mentor.

“I’ve been playing Gran Turismo since I was 12, so to appear in the game myself as a mentor is great. I hope everyone enjoys the game,” Vettel said.

Version 1.02 also adds a Consecutive Login Bonus, which applies a bonus to credits earned, up to 200 percent, for each consecutive day you login—to a maximum of five days. The amount of credits earned for events has also been increased, with earlier races getting a 110 percent boost and later races a 170 percent boost.

Finally two new seasonal events have been added to the game, which will run from December 20th, 2013 to January 17th, 2014 and from January 2nd, 2014 to January 30th, 2014. These events mark the seasonal holidays and the new year and offer special bonus credits.
