GT6 producer Polyphony Digital, together with the Ayrton Senna Institute, recently made the announcement that a collaboration was in order between the two companies that could see Senna, considered by many as one of the greatest racecar drivers in history, as a playable character in the actual racing simulator.
The Senna pack will be made available as a downloadable content and, while nothing imminent was announced as to what the pack will contain, all points seem to lead to him being in the game with players afforded the opportunity to "trace the roots of Ayrton Senna’s racing career."
In addition to this news, plans also call for a limited edition PlayStation 3 Ayrton Senna Bundle to be sold in Brazil with the bundle coming with an assortment of freebies, including a copy of Gran Turismo 6, bonus in-game credits, and even the inclusion of Anniversary Edition cars.
There’s a lot to like about Ayrton Senna being in Gran Turismo 6, especially for those who still consider him as the finest F1 racer in history.
Remember, GT6 hits shelves on December 6, 2013. If you’re having trouble with the math, that date is around six weeks away!
