When WRC 10 rolled up to the Xbox, PlayStation and PC starting grids in September, it was all about the 50th year of the WRC, with NACON and KT Racing really hammering home the half century celebrations. Today that feel is nailed down even more with some new free content for the game which adds in new cars, rallies and more.
Arriving on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PS4, PS5 and PC today is the second free update for WRC 10 – the official FIA World Rally Championship video game.
This new free update adds one of the most iconic rallies in the WRC, that of the Acropolis Rally. It’s this With winding and dusty mountain roads – and the odd cliff sides – that will provide a real challenge to all drivers. Having returned to the official WRC calendar in 2021 after a 7-year absence, this race was won by Kalle Rovanperä for his 2nd victory of the season. And already present in WRC 10 since the launch through a historical event, the update brings 3 special stages in 2021 version to the experience and also joins the game’s Career mode.
In fact, there are five new anniversary events included in all, coming on the back of the three which dropped in October. There’s some seriously famous driver and co-driver duos available here too…
- Rally Argentina in 1994 with Didier Auriol and Bernard Occelli in their Toyota Celica Turbo 4WD,
- Rally Argentina in 2004 with Carlos Sainz and Marc Martí in their Citroen Xsara WRC,
- Rally Germany in 2002 with Sébastien Loeb and Daniel Elena in their Citroën Xsara WRC,
- the Safari Rally in Kenya in 2000 with Richard Burns and Robert Reid in their Subaru Impreza S5 WRC ’99,
- Rally Mexico in 2016 with Jari-Matti Latvala and Miikka Anttila in their Volkswagen Polo R WRC.
But there’s more and the Club mode is also getting more realistic. In here players will be able to create their own online events and championships, just as a realistic mode is now available to add an extra layer of difficulty. This allows you to carry over the damage inflicted on the vehicle to the next stage, to place one or more service parks (and to impose a mandatory passage to a service park in order to equip the car with appropriate tyres when the road surface changes between two stages), and finally, the stages are played in one shot and cannot be replayed.
