The Mercedes-AMG GT in the racing game DRIVECLUB TM and the competition “Journey of Stars”.
The AMG GT in a whole new world.
Just four weeks after its world premiere on 9 September 2014, the sensational new Mercedes-AMG GT sports car will feature exclusively in DRIVECLUB TM, Sony Computer Entertainment Europe’s next generation racing game only on PlayStation®4. DRIVECLUB will be available in Europe from 8 October 2014 and fans will be able to download the new AMG GT for free in the first week of launch. DRIVECLUB also features five other models from Mercedes-Benz’s high-performance brand: the A 45 AMG, the CLA 45 AMG, the C 63 AMG Coupe Black Series, the SL 65 AMG and the SLS AMG Coupe Black Series. Mercedes-Benz is supporting the launch of the game with a range of activities.
The next gamers' generation.
A special highlight is the Mercedes-AMG GT also in the global online competition “Journey of Stars”. From 9 September 2014, gamers from all over the world will be invited to form a club here to compete around the world with their friends on social networks including: Facebook, Google+ and Twitter.
They will need to master a series of gaming challenges themed around both Mercedes-Benz and PlayStation.
Teamwork for success.
To win, the members of a club must join forces to overcome as many of these challenges as possible while creating the longest-possible line of worldwide connections. This mirrors the core social concept behind DRIVECLUB: success and fame are best achieved through teamwork within clubs. Each member of the victorious club will receive a PlayStation 4 and a copy of DRIVECLUB. The “Journey of Stars” ends on 9 October 2014.
In addition to the online competition, gamers can also experience PlayStation 4 and DRIVECLUB first hand in racing kiosks at selected Mercedes-Benz branches and events as well as at trade fairs.
