A new bundle version of GT5 has been announced this lunchtime for Europeans – the Academy Edition, to celebrate the fourth year of the Sony/Nissan tie-in of GT Academy.
Coming after the US-only Gran Turismo 5 XL, Academy Edition gives Europeans their first chance to buy a disc version of the Spec 2 upgraded game with a free DLC bundle – and it’s quite the bundle, featuring:
- 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 driven in this year’s Nurburgring 24 hour race by series creator Kazunori Yamauchi.
If that wasn’t enough, the announcement also contains a cryptic additional note that “there is more news yet to come on this title”.
The Academy Edition is due for release on September 26th 2012 for €29.99/£19.99 – less than the value of the DLC it contains.
