WRC 10 video game celebrates 50 years of WRC

WRC 10, the latest edition of the FIA World Rally Championship’s official video game embraces the upcoming 50th season of the championship by offering a nostalgic trip down memory lane.

NACON and development studio KT Racing will continue to build on the success of WRC 9, which sees more than 200,000 special stages played every day, by paying tribute to WRC’s 2022 50th season with the introduction of a retrospective mode, which allows players to relive 19 events that have shaped the history of the WRC.

The historic events include Acropolis Rally and Rallye Sanremo, which can be driven in the cars that have defined the WRC, from the Alpine Renault A110, through to the Audis and Lancias of the Group B era, the Subarus, Toyotas and Mitsubishis of the nineties, up to the current generation of cars from Hyundai, Toyota and Ford.

Another key feature is the addition of Croatia Rally, Rally Estonia, Ypres Rally Belgium and RallyRACC Rally de España, all of which appear on the 2021 WRC calendar.

Croatia Rally will feature for the first time

These events can be competed in from a selection of 52 of the official teams of the 2021 season (WRC, WRC2, WRC3 and Junior WRC), featuring WRC stars such as Sébastien Ogier, Ott Tänak and Thierry Neuville, as well as stars of the future in Kalle Rovanperä, Adrien Fourmaux and Oliver Solberg.

KT Racing are once again putting an emphasis on the critically-acclaimed physics featured in WRC 9, adding further improvements offering players an even greater realistic experience, with a specific focus on aerodynamic forces, the turbo and braking.

For the first time ever, players can have a greater say in the design of their car, with the chance to create unique liveries in Career Mode, as well as create their own teams.

WRC 10 launches on September 2021 on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S and PC. Nintendo Switch will follow at a later date.
