Polyphony Digital, the developer of recently released Gran Turismo 6, has announced a new ‘holiday update’ for the game, available on the 18th December.
The free update will allow gamers the opportunity to drive the Red Bull Racing Kart and the Red Bull X2014 Junior through in-game delearships, while the Red Bull X2014 Standard and Fan cars are expected to join them at a later date. All of the X2014 models have been designed for GT6 in conjunction with Red Bull Racing’s legendary Chief Technical Officer, Adrian Newey.
“We are very grateful to Adrian Newey, Sebastian Vettel and Infiniti Red Bull Racing for providing this special gift for Gran Turismo fans,” President of Polyphony Digital Inc., Kazunori Yamauchi said of the end-of-year gift for gamers. “To be taught how to drive downforce cars by the best racing driver in the world is very special and the new Red Bull X2014 cars are another exciting addition to Gran Turismo 6. This is the latest update for the game and there are more to come.”
“I’ve been playing Gran Turismo since I was 12, so to appear in the game myself as a mentor is great,” added four-time Formula One World Champion, Sebastien Vettel. “I hope everyone enjoys the game.”
