With games like Forza Motorsport and Forza Horizon consuming so much of our time, it’s easy to forget that we once had a lot of love for another car game – WRC. The last installment hit shelves back in 2017 and was, well, okay at best. It was criticized for a number of things, including a lack of drivers, technical routes, and a not-so-great career mode. Now, two years later, we finally have confirmation that Bigben and Kylotonn have a new WRC game in the works – aptly called WRC8 – that should address these issues and even more.
According to a recent press release, the two companies soaked up all the mediocre reviews for the last WRC game and have used the last two years to put together a new product that should include better graphics, more comprehensive career mode, and more realistic physics, among other things. All official teams from the 2019 WRC roster will be included int eh game, including Sebastien Ogier, Esapekka Lappi, and Sebastien Loeb. Even better yet, WRC 8 will include the selection of WRC 2 and Junior WRC drivers and a few historical models as well. There will even be a new dynamic weather system that is said to increase realism and add random elements to the gameplay experience. For now, that’s about all we know, but the game should hit shelves sometime in September of 2019. Until that happens, you can check out the launch video above and the small gallery below.
