Polyphony Digital Announces New Aryton Senna DLC Coming May 27 for Gran Turismo 6
Today, Sony Computer Entertainment America announced the launch of the exclusive Gran Turismo 6 special update celebrating the life, achievements, and legacy of gifted Brazilian racing driver, Ayrton Senna. Starting with a free update on May 27, exclusively for GT6 on PlayStation 3, the Ayrton Senna Tribute is the culmination of a long term partnership between the Ayrton Senna Institute and Gran Turismo developer Polyphony Digital Inc.
The partnership aims to deliver online content updates that enable players to trace the roots of Senna’s racing career and relive some of his best moments, including his pole position laps on circuits such as Brands Hatch and Monza.
The free update will make a dedicated Ayrton Senna section available on the GT6 main menu. Players receiving a bronze or better in any of the legendary Senna Challenges will receive the Lotus 97T, which Senna drove during his second Formula 1 season in 1985 when he tallied seven poles. Drivers will also have the option to purchase the vehicle with in-game credits from the Ayrton Senna dealership without having to complete the seasonal event. Other new in-game content includes one of Senna’s first go-karts and special Senna Challenges so that players can drive the same courses Senna drove on and attempt to beat his lap times for those events.
Here are the details on the new DLC release:
• Lotus 97T
o Course: Monza ’85 layout
o Target Time: Senna’s pole position time 1’25.084
• Lotus 97T
o Course: Brands Hatch ’85 layout
