Nacon and KT Racing dropped an announcement trailer for the upcoming WRC 10 on Tuesday. The FIA World Rally Championship’s official video game is offering fans a nostalgic trip down memory lane in the trailer, celebrating 50 years of WRC.
Leaning into that forthcoming anniversary, WRC 10 introduces a retrospective mode. This new game mode allows players to relive 19 seminal moments in rally championship history. These include not only historic events like Acropolis Rally and Rallye Sanremo, but the historic cars that helped define the WRC. In addition, the Croatia Rally, Rally Estonia, Ypres Rally Belgium and RallyRACC Rally de España will all be featured in WRC 10. Furthermore, WRC 10 will feature added customization to its career mode.
According to Nacon, players will have greater say in the design of their car, and can even put together their own teams. 52 of the official teams for the 2021 season will appear in WRC 10. Specifically, rally stars Sébastien Ogier, Ott Tänak and Thierry Neuville. Not to mention, up-and-comers Kalle Rovanperä, Adrien Fourmaux and Oliver Solberg. Gameplay-wise, KT Racing is putting an emphasis on aerodynamic forces, turbo, and braking. WRC 9 got a decent reception from users, noting the car handling and graphics, but most didn’t greet the game with the same enthusiasm as many critics.
WRC 10 launches on PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S this coming September. The Nintendo Switch will also see a release at a later date.
