The new patch which is now being rolled out, will boosts the amount of credits earned during Career Mode – likely in response to the controversy caused by the game’s microtransactions.
While the exact credit boost wasn’t revealed in patch notes, Sony made known to Eurogamer that credits earned during early races are boosted by 110 percent, and those in later races by 170 percent.
Also, players can now earn further credit boosts by playing the game on a daily basis while connected to PSN, with up to a 200 percent credit boost offered for logging in for five consecutive days. “Be sure to login everyday to earn more credits,” Sony says.
In addition, two new Seasonal Events have been added, running between December 20th – January 17th and January 2nd – January 30th respectively. The events are said to “mark the season holidays and the new year” and will feature “special bonus credits”.
Polyphony Digital has also lowered the entry requirements for Seasonal Events, with players now only requiring a National B licence to participate.
GT6 is a PS3 exclusive launched earlier this month. It didn’t match the sales of its predecessor, falling way short, an occurrence some blame of the game releasing around PS4′s launch.
