- GT6 Update Info
An update for Gran Turismo 6 has been released. The following is a list of the main features introduced:
Red Bull X Challenge
The Red Bull X Challenge has been added to the Career Mode. Receive advice and hints from the world champion, Sebastian Vettel, here in the role of mentor, and learn how to drive an authentic formula car. The challenge added in this update is the first half (the second half will follow in a future update). The International B Licence is needed to enter this challenge.
Furthermore, the “Red Bull Racing Kart 125” and ”Red Bull X2014 Junior” have been added to the Dealerships section in-game.
Consecutive Login Bonus
When you login online for consecutive days, a bonus to all credits awards will be added for each consecutive day: 110% for the 1st day, 130% for the 2nd day, 150% for the 3rd day and so on, until you will receive 200% bonus on the 5th day. Be sure to login every day to earn more credits!
Credits earned in Career Mode increased
The amount of credits earned in Career Mode have been increased. Rewards for Novice Class races have been raised to approximately 110%, for National B Class up to approx. 130%, for National A Class to approx. 140%, for International B Class to approx. 150%, for International A Class to approx. 160%, and for Super Class they have been raised to approximately 170%. This may give good incentive to go back and try some races you’ve already cleared!
Entry requirements for Seasonal Events lowered
The requirements to enter Seasonal Events have been changed. Now players will only require a National B Licence in order to participate (previously they needed a National A Licence). Following this Update and only for a limited time, there will be unique special events that will award cars as prizes, so don’t miss this opportunity, and remember to login online!
Bonus Events within Seasonal Events
From 20 December 2013 3:00AM GMT to 17 January 2014 3:00AM GMT the Seasonal Events will host a special bonus event. If you obtain a Gold award in all events, the credits reward will add up to 3,000,000 credits, and combined with the Consecutive Login Bonus, this can multiply to a maximum 6,000,000 credits!
Furthermore, a second bonus event is planned to be held from 2 January 2014 3:00AM GMT to 30 January 2014 3:00AM. Again, this event will allow you to win up to 6,000,000 credits when combined with the Consecutive Login Bonus, so if you participate in both special events you could earn up to 12,000,000 credits!
We hope you will enjoy these unique events during the seasonal holidays and into the New Year!
*Please note that the entry period of the bonus Seasonal Events is 4 weeks in total, but the online rankings will only be recorded for the first 2 weeks.
