Sony Announces Gran Turismo 5 Academy Edition for Europe

Gran Turismo 5GT Academy 140 July 25, 2012 by

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.
