four new gran turismo 5 dlcs confirmed for october 18 gt5The wait is over, Gran Turismo 5 fans! Well, that’s not entirely true, the wait won’t be over until October 18, but you get the point. Earlier today, Sony and Polyphony Digital pulled back the curtain on the long-awaited downloadable content for GT5.

The add-ons will be released as four separate packs, each available for varying prices that would total around $18, or you can purchase them all as one giant DLC for $11.99. The four upcoming add-ons are:

  • Racing Car Pack ($7.99)—The Racing Car Pack introduces 11 new custom touring cars to GT5, including a Mazda RX-7, Suburu Impreza, Mitsubishi Lancer Evo, Dodge Challenger SRT8, Nissan GT-R, Honda CR-Z and a racing-tuned Toyota Prius. The pack also includes three new racing karts. Along with the other cars and karts, the Racing Car Pack will also include the Red Bull X2011, the updated version of the X2010. In total the Racing Pack offers 15 new vehicles.
  • Course Pack ($4.99)—This pack will include two new tracks: Spa, Belgium’s Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps, and a new indoor kart-track, designed for GT5.
  • Racing Gear Pack ($2.99)—This pack includes 90 new pieces of racing gear, including new suits and helmets for your racing avatar.
  • Paint Pack ($1.99)—The Paint Pack features 100 paint colors to customize your cars, including chrome and aluminum.

But before you begin counting your pennies to purchase the DLC, head online today and download the Spec 2.0 Update for free. The update includes several improvements to GT5, including interior views for all vehicles, faster load times, more control of online games, 2011 NASCAR cars, a new opening cinematic and more.
