Polyphony Digital has announced the addition of two new packs for their Gran Turismo 5 sim racing video game: the ’Twin Ring Motegi Pack’ and ’Scion FR-S ’12’ DLC. The best part of this announcement is that the FR-S will be available as a free download, in hopes of bumping up the amount of downloads taking place.
The new Twin Ring Motegi Pack, however, does not come free of charge, but includes the Twin Ring Motegi ’Road Course,’ the ’Super Speedway,’ the ’East Course,’ and the ’West Course’. For only $5, gamers will be able to try out the famous racetrack in Japan with its large variety of layouts.
The ’Scion FR-S ’12’ DLC is FREE and adds the new Scion FR-S to the gamer’s own garage. As a reminder, the model is powered by a 2.0-liter front boxer engine that delivers a total of 200 horsepower and 151 lb/ft of torque. The engine can then be mated to either a six-speed manual or a six-speed automatic transmission. On the US market, the FR-S is priced from $24,930.
The increasing number of automakers that have dipped their fingers in the augmented reality experience bucket have clearly found a new way to catch the attention of their prospective customers.
In promoting the 2011 Scion tC, Scion has thought of a way to get people behind the wheel of a tC through their new interactive game called ‘Take on the Machine’.
The game consists of driving a virtual tC with a virtual steering wheel with the objective being to avoid all of the obstacles throughout the city to achieve the fastest possible time. It’s a little tricky in the beginning, especially because of how the steering wheel works, but once you get the hang of it, it becomes a heck of a lot of fun to do, especially if you can play it for shots with your friends.
If you’re not into the whole hi-tech virtual steering wheel mode, there’s an option to play the game using your computer’s keyboard. Not as fun as the former, but definitely less complicated.
Hop on over to the Scion website and see if you have what it takes to “take on the machine”.
