Idris Elba’s starring role at WRC launch
Hollywood star rides with champion Ogier
Available for consoles and PC, the game, called WRC 5, will be the product of a new partnership between publisher and distributor, Bigben Interactive, and French racing game developer, Kylotonn.
WRC 5 will feature brand new stages, new game modes and 2015-season car liveries - as well as new levels of realism.
“Our team of racing enthusiasts is developing new technical tools to offer a true rally simulator from scratch,” explained Alain Jarniou, Game Director at Kylotonn Games.
The new game will also benefit from the input of 2013 WRC3 Champion Sébastien Chardonnet. The French rising star is one of the game’s ambassadors, and today unveiled a special WRC 5 car livery at the season launch event in Monte-Carlo.
“It’s exciting to help Kylotonn to make the best WRC game ever seen,” said Chardonnet. “Combining my driver and gamer experience with their technical point of view is something interesting when you are trying to do the most realistic game possible.”
Bigben has released a taster of the new game on its Youtube channel.
