Sony has announced today that a special edition of Gran Turismo 5 will be available in Europe for the PlayStation 3 this 26th September for €29.99/£19.99.
Titled the Gran Turismo 5: Academy Edition, the package includes Gran Turismo 5, all the content which was previously released on the PlayStation Store and a new car, the Nissan GTR.
The special edition is designed to celebrate the fourth anniversary of Sony’s collaboration with Nissan on the “ground-breaking GT Academy programme”.
The Gran Turismo 5: Academy Edition includes:
- Gran Turismo 5.
- Complete Pack (Car Pack, Course Pack, Special Paint Pack, Racing Gear Pack).
- Car Pack 2.
- Car Pack 3 and Course Pack 2.
- The Nissan GTR, which was driven in this year’s Nurburgring 24 hour race by series creator Kazunori Yamauchi.
"GT Academy has captured the imagination of many Gran Turismo fans. 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."
