NACON and KT Racing are pleased to announce a free update to WRC 10, the official FIA World Rally Championship video game, for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and Steam PC.
This free update adds the highly anticipated Renties Ypres Rally Belgium, won this year by local driver Thierry Neuville. Added to the calendar in early 2021, players will have the opportunity to experience these new asphalt country roads. Narrow and winding, they are lined with ditches and posts and punctuated by numerous junctions. The roadsides often bring dust and mud to the tarmac and make conditions slippery with drivers not hesitating to cut corners. In WRC 10, the Ypres rally consists of 7 stages plus a shakedown.
Three new historic events make their appearance, featuring famous driver and co-driver duos in their original cars: the 1980 Rally Portugal with Walter Röhrl and Christian Geistdörfer in their Fiat 131 Abarth, the 1981 Rally Finland with Ari Vatanen and David Richards in their Ford Escort MkII 1800 and finally, the 2017 Rally Portugal with Sébastien Ogier and Julien Ingrassia in their Ford Fiesta WRC.
In addition, 6 historical rallies are already present in the base game, including Acropolis, San Remo, Germany, and Argentina. All this is in addition to the already rich content available since the launch of WRC 10: more than 20 mythical cars, legendary drivers such as Carlos Sainz, Sébastien Loeb, Colin McRae, and Tommi Mäkinen.
And last, the Co-driver mode is improved with the arrival of a complete lexicon that makes the experience more accessible to players and promotes even more immersion. Noted using a QTE system, the co-driver fully participates in the victory by announcing the pace notes correctly but also by staying in the rhythm! An online experience as fun as exciting!
