Sony and Polyphony Digital are now officially on the road to promoting Gran Turismo Sport. The newest game in the series is set for release on November 15th later this year for the PS4, and there are already some pre-order bonuses revealed for the title.
Gamespot is reporting that those who pre-order the game will earn three free cars. This includes the Ford Mustang Group B Rally Car, the Toyota FT-1 Vision GT Group 3 and the Peugeot 908 HDi FAP LMP1.
If you pre-order from specific retailers you'll also earn the above cars for Gran Turismo Sport, along with some additional bonuses. For instance, anyone who pre-orders from GameStop will earn the three aforementioned cars along with the Chevrolet Corvette Group 3 and the Nissan NISMO GT-R GT3 N24.
Alternatively, if you decide to pre-order this latest Gran Turismo game from the PlayStation Store you'll be greeted with Gran Turismo themed PS4 avatars, along with a dynamic theme for your dashboard, and $500,000 worth of in-game credits. That's actually a pretty slick deal and a lot more enticing than the one offered by GameStop.
Amazon's pre-order bonuses are a lot less auspicious than that of GameStop and the PlayStation Store. While you will receive the three free cars, you're only going to net yourself $500,000 in in-game credits if you pre-order the game from the online retailer.
Sony and Polyphony Digital wasn't done with their offers for this newest iteration of Gran Turismo. They've also announced that there will be two additional renditions of Gran Turismo Sport, including a GT Sport Limited Edition for $69.99, which comes with additional cars and credits in addition to what you get with the pre-order bonuses.
What's more is that there's also a special Limited Edition that comes in at a whomping $129.99. What do you get in that bad boy? How about eight special GT Sport starter cars from each of the major various racing classes, from GT3 to GT4 to the rally cars. You'll have everything you need to hit the track and burn rubber right off the starting line. But there's more than that included in the $129 limited edition, including $1 million in in-game credits so you can buy just about any car you want right at the start of the game. It kind of seems cheap to start off with that kind of cash given that the appeal of most previous Gran Turismo titles is working your way up from the production car races toward the GT and Supercar classes where you can begin to earn the big bucks. Starting the game right off the bat with $1 million kind of diminishes the need to grind through and experience the game's challenges.
Nevertheless, the Limited Edition also comes with a livery sticker pack, so gamers can finally outfit and customize the look of their cars in Gran Turismo Sport. This has been a much-requested feature ever since Forza Motorsport came onto the scene a decade ago, which afforded players the ability to customize their cars and outfit their liveries with custom designs.
Additionally the Limited Edition will also contain a racing helmet for the driver profile and a limited edition steel book in addition to 30 PS4 GT Sport avatars.
You can look for Gran Turismo Sport to go live, exclusively for the PS4, starting November 15.
