WRC 8, the official game of the FIA World Rally Championship, was announced way back in January, promising improvements galore after a two-year hiatus. Now, Bigben and KT racing have released a brand new video that puts the focus on its completely redesigned Career Mode. Do you want to watch it and find out more about it?

Traditionally, the career mode is the most popular and most played game mode, so after discussions with the community, the development team wanted to offer content that meets fans’ expectations in a deep and varied game mode. In the Career Mode video we meet Benoit Gomes, the game’s Lead Game Designer, who explores the unique features and depth of this mode in detail.

The new Career Mode in WRC 8 mimics the real world and allows players to become a driver for a WRC team for the first time. Players must progress from season to season to compete in the WRC category and the ultimate goal is to become world champion. By following several teams in different rallies, the developers managed to capture the crucial aspects of a successful season. As a result, players must excel in three major areas that have been included in the game:

  • Planning the calendar to decide which events to do in between rallies: training, manufacturer challenges, rest, classic events, etc.
  • Managing a whole crew comprising six different and interconnected job roles. Players must consider each of their unique characteristics and use them strategically in each rally.
  • Upgrading the crew through R&D and a skill tree, which evolves depending on player choices. Every decision has an impact on progression and on the morale of the crew (performance, reliability, etc.).

The statistics available at the end of each rally will also help players to refine their strategy, compare themselves to competitors and adjust their set-ups as necessary to climb the rankings, upgrade their car and recruit the right people for their team. All of which are key in achieving success during the rallies.

This is looking like it could end up being the most complete and authentic official WRC simulation ever made. Especially when factoring in the new off-road physics for all surfaces, extreme and dynamic weather conditions, 52 teams, 14 countries, over 100 special stages, weekly challenges and an eSports mode. Only time will tell when WRC 8 releases in September 2019 on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch and PC.

Don’t forget to check out the video!
