Publisher Nacon and developer KT Racing have announced WRC 10, the latest long-lasting rally racing series. The studio is implementing several changes in hopes of improving the overall racing experience. Not only that, but this game strives to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the FIA World Rally Championship (WRC) in 2022 through several new features.
As part of the celebration of the 50th anniversary of the WRC, WRC 10 introduces a retrospective mode, allowing players to relive 19 of the most important events in WRC history. These challenges aim to put your skills to the test as you face different conditions specific to each race epoch. The mode features six historic rallies, including the Acropolis Rally in Greece, Rally Sanremo in Italy, and more. In addition to all this, this package offers four new rallies: Estonia, Croatia, Belgium and Spain. You can attack these rallies with over 20 of the best-known rally cars from manufacturers like Audi, Subaru and Mitsubishi.
Career mode also receives various improvements, with a new livery editor and squad builder. Players can equip your car and apply your own colors as you like. Now you can create your own team to race alongside the 52 official teams present in the 2021 season. Once you’re on the track, die-hard gamers will notice several gameplay improvements. Whether you’re struggling to hug muddy bends or rush to the pavement right away, WRC promises to recreate surfaces with greater attention to detail than ever before. Players will also notice better aerodynamics, improved turbo and better braking.
Nacon and KT Racing also released a brief trailer showing the game in action. You can see the short announcement video below.
Although we missed WRC 9, we were big fans of WRC 8. In a 2020 article on the best games to play when ordering shelter in place, old Game Informant Publisher Matthew Kato chose WRC 8 as his choice. “The Xbox One has some well-known and solid runners like the Forza titles, but WRC 8 is definitely worth a look if you’re up for a challenge,” he said.
WRC 10 is coming to PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X / S, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on September 2. The racing title will also be available on Switch at some point thereafter.
