EA Sports WRC: Rally Pass & Achievements


The release date for EA Sports WRC is almost here, with those who preordered the title getting a head start on October 31st. Here’s what awaits in the EA Sports WRC Rally Pass and what achievements to expect.

When EA Sports WRC was initially announced, sim racers were surprised by the lack of special editions. There will only be a standard edition, even for preorders. If you are among the up-front buyers, you will be able to access the game on October 31st instead of November 3rd and receive liveries and apparel. Plus, five VIP Rally Passes are also included – but what are they?

EA Sports WRC Rally Pass Explained

The Rally Pass in EA Sports WRC tracks players’ progression and lets them unlock reward items. These include helmets, gloves, overalls, car liveries, and more for the first season. By default, 10 of these rewards are available, with VIP Rally Pass owners get 15 VIP rewards of the same nature. Additonally, EA Play subscribers receive five further rewards.

The EA Sports WRC Rally Pass renews every few weeks. Season 1 will be active for seven weeks after launch, followed by eight-week intervals for Seasons 2 to 5. The pass features 20 levels for players to rise through by gaining XP by driving in all game modes.

EA Sports WRC Rally Pass: No On-Road Advantage

While those who preordered will have a VIP Rally Pass for all five of the planned Seasons already, it can be purchased later as well. EA Sports’ price tag: £5.99/$5.99/€5.99.

The good news is that the Rally Pass is entirely optional. It will only feature cosmetic items, so players will not gain an on-track advantage from it. Furthermore, EA Sports emphasizes that there will be no paid in-game currency or other boosters.

The publisher has been criticized in the past for its microtransaction approach to its titles, so them taking a different route for EA Sports WRC is refreshing. Meanwhile, the upcoming Central European Rally will be added as a free update for all players.

The only content that will be exclusive to certain players are select Moments. EA Play subscribers will receive extra scenarios to complete. Depending on your interest in them, this is also not a must-have upgrade.

All Rally Pass bonuses will be purely cosmetic as EA Sports WRC will not hide content behind a paywall – with a minor exception. Image credit: EA Sports.

PS5-Exclusive Trophy

Hardly any title comes without achievements (or Trophies, as they are called in the PlayStation universe) today. Of course, EA Sports WRC is no different: A total of 26 achievements are available across all platforms, plus a Platinum Trophy for PS5 racers. It is awarded for completing all the other achievements.

The achievements are categorized from bronze to gold (plus the PS5 platinum. Players can complete relatively simple tasks like completing a lesson in Rally School or tackle more challenging ones like winning a stage in Portugal after starting with a heavily-damaged engine.

Lifelong motorsport enthusiast and sim racing aficionado, walking racing history encyclopedia. I have been working in sim racing since 2021 after previously working with pro and amateur sports teams and athletes for a daily newspaper in Wolfsburg. Nothing gets me more excited than motor racing, especially with the beastly machines of the past. A third pedal and h-shifter are not just options for a rig, they are mandatory to me. Avid fan of the IndyCar series (modern and CART/pre-split).
