Gran Turismo 6 demo out today
The 2013 GT Academy competition also kicks off
The 2013 GT Academy competition begins today at 5:00pm Pacific Time when the demo of Gran Turismo 6 for PS3 becomes available to download.
The GT6 demo will guide players through GT Academy-themed driving school challenges before unlocking the final qualifying event. Players have the potential to qualify for this year’s GT Academy, kick-starting a journey that could lead to a real-life racing career with Nissan.
The demo includes the following modes on the new Silverstone track: A quick tutorial that includes tips and tricks on the controls and navigating around the track; Four warm-up races using two Nissan cars, the LEAF and 370Z; and five time trials on the Silverstone track driving the Nissan 370Z, four of which take place on various sections of the track, and one being the full lap. That one full lap time becomes the entry time for GT Academy.
Players who clear all five trials with greater than a bronze medal will receive a special 15 Year Anniversary bonus race event, which will appear in the demo after July 28.
The GT6 demo is available to anyone with a Sony Entertainment Network account and access to a PS3 connected to the internet. It will be available until end of August.
Gran Turismo 6 is set to launch exclusively on PlayStation 3 this year.
