Bigben Interactive in collaboration with the development studio Milestone, announced WRC 4, the fourth chapter of rally series that will be on shelves in October 2013 for PS3, PSVita, X360 and PC.According to its press release, WRC 4 will feature a new amazing mix of elements with high graphical detail and real in-game sound. All these improvements are possible thanks to the community’s feedback. The main characteristics that will be included into this new game are: loyalty to the license, an exciting game experience, accessibility for first-time players and a dynamic and competitive online game mode.
Among new features of this 2013 edition, players will have the chance to experience new lighting conditions, new weather effects depending on the stage, and a brand new Career Mode to put the player into real driver’s shoes.
Realism and immersion are two of the most important pillars of the development, with impressive 3D environments and an HDR system that will grant the best in-game performance. Or at least that’s what Milestone claimed.
Alain Falc, CEO of Bigben Interactive said:
“We are very pleased and proud to become the publisher of this famous racing franchise. This is a new step in the partnership built with Milestone over the past few years. All our efforts are done to offer players the most complete and realistic WRC videogame.”
Luisa Bixio, Marketing and Sales Director added:
“We’re really happy to be part of this exciting WRC 4 announcement and all the news included into the 2013 version of the game. This brand new chapter, different from the previous reboot of the series, will include many of the improvements requested by the community. A lot of the features that we’ve seen on the official Facebook page or received by mail have been incorporated. We’re convinced that WRC 4 represents a step forward for the series and will be appreciated by players.”
WRC 4 is the official game for the 2013 FIA World Rally Championship and features all the rallies from the 2013 WRC calendar, complete with all leading WRC teams and drivers in the revamped Career Mode to turn players into real WRC drivers. WRC 4 also features an improved version of the graphics engine, called Spikengine, launched last year.
Here is hoping that this new WRC game will come with proper SLI scaling this time around.
