FIA World Rally Champ fan? You’ll be glad to hear that WRC 6 will be making its way to a console near you this year!
BigBen and Kylotonn Racing Games have today announced that WRC 6, the official 2016 video game of the FIA World Rally Championships will be coming to Xbox One, PS4 and PC.
Dropping this autumn, WRC 6 will include 14 WRC events including Rally China, all the official drivers and teams plus a decent selection of WRC2 and Junior WRC pedalers. Following on the success of WRC5, the guys behin the latest iteration whave collected community feedback to help improve the latest version and raise the experience to a whole new level of realism and excitement.
You’ll also find that eSports WRC, the online competitive side of WRC will also continue with WRC 6. Details of that will be released closer to the game’s release though.
“We spent the last eight months, since the release of WRC 5, collecting and studying all the feedback from the community to improve the experience and take it to a new level” said Alain Jarniou, Game Director at Kylotonn. “The experience gained from WRC 5 helped the team to completely understand the expectations of racing fans when it comes to rallying. Roads were too wide in WRC 5? They will be narrower and more bumpy in WRC 6. Stages were sometimes too short? We created new, longer stages and reworked everything to make them more challenging. These are just a few examples of the massive improvements we are bringing to WRC 6 and we already know that players will definitely appreciate these changes.”
“If you enjoyed WRC 5, then you will love WRC 6,” said, Oliver Ciesla, Promoter managing director for WRC. “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.”
