NACON and KT Racing have announced the next official video game of the FIA World Rally Championship, WRC 9. As the press release reads, WRC 9 will have multiple improvements and new features for rally gaming fans.
WRC 9’s Career Mode will have enhanced gameplay mechanics and new opportunities to upgrade your team. Furthermore, it will come with a wider variety of events and a stronger link to what the real-world championship teams are doing throughout the year.
WRC 9 will also include extensive content with three new events added to the calendar. These events are: Kenya’s iconic Safari Rally, Rally Japan, Rally New Zealand and two other rallies with completely redesigned environments. Fans will also be able to take the wheel of new classic WRC cars.
To improve and refine certain vehicle behaviors, the developers have again focused on the realism of car physics – including suspensions, braking and mass transfer – to take authenticity to the next level. This attention to detail faithfully reproduces the vehicles’ responsiveness on all surfaces and in all conditions. A special focus on sound will also provide deeper immersion.
In WRC 9, players are thrust into the heart of the new FIA World Rally Championship season with all content in the yearly calendar and much more:
- 3 new rallies: Japan, New Zealand, Kenya
- Over 50 official teams and their livery from the WRC, WRC 2, WRC 3 and Junior WRC
- Over 15 bonus cars that have left their mark on the history of the WRC
Last but not least, WRC 9 will come out in September 2020, exclusively via the Epic Games Store.
