Gran Turismo 6 updated with free new challenge, cars

Gran Turismo 6 players can get the new Red Bull X Challenge along with two additional cars in a free update today, according to a post on the PlayStation Blog.

The challenge and vehicles are part of a collaboration between developer Polyphony Digital and Infiniti Red Bull Racing. Players can now tackle this challenge and other tracks in Gran Turismo 6 with the Red Bull Racing Kart or Red Bull X2014 Junior.

The free update also adds the Consecutive Login Bonus, which will allowed players to accrue up to a 200 percent bonus in credits for logging into Gran Turismo 6 five days in a row. Logging in every day after will earn players additional credits and the number of credits that can be earned through Career Mode have also been increased.

Two new seasonal events have been scheduled, the first running Dec. 20 through Jan. 17, 2014 and the latter running Jan. 2 through Jan. 30. Entry requirements for these events have been lowered; players need only a National B license in order to participate and for a limited time these events will offer vehicles as prizes.

Two more cars, the Red Bull X2014 Standard and Fan cars, as well as the second part of the X Challenge will be added to Gran Turismo 6 at a later date.
