Gran Turismo 5 Academy Edition revealed

Re-release will feature all GT5 DLC

Sony has announced it will be releasing an Academy Edition of Polyphony Digital's Gran Turismo 5.


Set for release on September 26, it will cost €29.99/£19.99 and contain all the post-release Gran Turismo 5 DLC, which includes the Complete Pack (Car Pack, Course Pack, Special Paint Pack, Racing Gear Pack), Car Pack 2, Car Pack 3, Course Pack 2 and the Nissan GTR 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," said Yamauchi. "It is exciting to watch what Lucas Ordˇ˝ez, 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."
