Release date confirmed for WRC 6

WRC 6, the official video game of the FIA World Rally Championship, will be released on Friday 7 October.

The 2016 edition will contain major improvements, including enhanced graphics and audio, and new and longer special stages.

It will be the only game to present authentic and current car liveries, with Volkswagen Motorsport, Abu Dhabi Total World Rally Team, Hyundai Motorsport and M-Sport World Rally Team represented with their World Rally Cars in 2016 colours.

Gamers will be able to select from all the sport’s leading World Rally Car drivers, including triple world champion Sébastien Ogier, Thierry Neuville, Kris Meeke and Mads Østberg, along with a wide selection of WRC 2 and Junior WRC competitors.

Players who pre-order WRC 6 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One or with retail partners will receive the Toyota Yaris WRC test car, developed by Toyota Gazoo Racing for the Japanese manufacturer which will make its eagerly-awaited return to the championship next season.

The game, which will be published by Bigben Interactive and has been developed by French development studio Kylotonn Racing Games, will be available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC/Steam.

WRC Promoter managing director Oliver Ciesla said WRC 6 would provide an even more realistic challenge for gamers.

“If you enjoyed WRC 5, then you will love WRC 6. The developers have introduced significant improvements to make the playing experience even more exciting and true to life, while remaining faithful to its core aims of being an all-action game which takes in classic rallies and legendary special stages on all types of road surfaces,” he said.
