WRC 10 has been announced. New features, next gen console support and more. The developers are keen to build on the success of the previous title.
  • Emphasis on historic cars and stages
  • Improved Physics
  • Custom team editor in career mode
Ok, maybe my excitement is a little biased as I am a huge fan of WRC 9 and rally games in general, but the last iteration of the World Rally Championship simulations was really quite good. I've mentioned in previous posts that I hadn't been terribly convinced by the WRC series of games before, but, something changed in WRC 9. I heard some good things about it from people I trust so I decided to give it a go, and yeah, I was very impressed.

I have put a ton of hours into the career mode on WRC 9 but as is the case with most titles which follow a yearly cycle the content can get a little tired, so you can imagine my excitement when I saw the news regarding the latest edition in the series. I had heard rumblings that WRC 9 was potentially the last WRC game to be made by KT Racing and frankly I was a little upset as I felt they had finally found a winning formula so I am glad to see they are still in place for the time being.

So what's new in WRC 10? Well from the trailer it looks like there is a certain emphasis on historic rallies and cars, the promotional website also states:

"the introduction of a retrospective mode, which allows players to relive 19 events that have shaped the history of the WRC.

The historic events include Acropolis Rally and Rallye Sanremo, which can be driven in the cars that have defined the WRC, from the Alpine Renault A110, through to the Audis and Lancias of the Group B era, the Subarus, Toyotas and Mitsubishis of the nineties, up to the current generation of cars from Hyundai, Toyota and Ford"


As well as the historic cars there is of course all the latest machinery and environments you would expect. All the rallies from the 2021 season will be featured in the sim (And yes I am calling it a sim because, well, it is). My hope is that they double down on the realistic physics as the cars can feel absolutely sublime with a little tweaking of your wheel settings.

My favourite piece of news though has to be the development of the career mode. This year it appears that players will have the chance to create their own teams and liveries. This excites me greatly, this will add a new dimension to the game mode which was already pretty strong.

WRC 10 launches on September 2021 on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S and PC. Nintendo Switch will follow at a later date.

Full disclosure - No, this is not an advert. No, we didn't get paid to say nice things, hell, we aren't even on KT Racing's mailing list. This is just an excited little boy excited about his new rally game that's coming soon. Thanks.
