Gran Turismo 6 is going to be the first title in its franchise to feature microtransactions, that will unlock prestigious vehicles, parts and upgrades. The model doesn’t really relish in the pay-to-win category and Polyphony assures that it’s just to give players “a new option for building your ultimate fantasy car collection.”
For a small price you can purchase credits, the game’s virtual currency, and use it to shop for whatever piques your interest.
- 500,000 credits for £3.99/€4.99 (approximately $6.76 USD)
- 1 million credits for £7.99/€9.99 ($13.54 USD)
- 2.5 million credits for £15.99/€19.99 ($27.10 USD)
- 7 Million credits for £39.99/€49.99 ($67.77 USD)
If you’ve yet to place your order, then know that doing so will entitle you to the bonus “Precision Pack,” which adds five new cars to the game.
If you decide on getting the Special Edition over the Standard one, then you’ll receive the game, as well as “20 extra cars (Torque, Performance, Adrenaline and Velocity packs), custom PSN avatars, paint chips, race suits and race helmets.”
There is also an Anniversary Edition of the game that features all five car packs and the one million in-game credits, which will help you complete your ultimate fantasy car collection.
Gran Turismo 6 will launch on Friday, December 6 worldwide exclusively on PlayStation 3. As of the last month, the game was made available on the PlayStation Store to allow those who have pre-ordered the game to load up in advance and start racing on launch day.
