Kylotonn and Nacon look towards the future, although this game is a cross-gen title.
According to WRC Generations’ Steam page, “2022 will see the WRC transition to the hybrid era. It is a revolution for the rally world, significantly affecting performance, changing strategies and making drivers and teams adapt. In terms of gameplay, new mechanics have been integrated to represent the demands of the hybrid engines. To win, you have to carefully manage your battery by adapting your engine mapping throughout the special stages you take part in.
As community satisfaction is always a priority, you can now share customized livery and stickers with other players. The best creations will be rewarded and highlighted. The new Leagues mode lets players challenge opponents with a similar level online for fans of competition. Finish ahead of your competitors to move up the ladder in the Legends category.
WRC Generations includes more content than ever before in a rally game: 750 km of unique special stages in 22 countries; 49 teams from the 2022 season (Rally1 / Rally2 / Junior WRC); 37 legendary cars plus additional bonuses; 165 timed special stages.
A wholly redesigned Rally Sweden environment has been added to make the championship representation even more realistic, with six brand-new special stages in the Umea region. The game has the new hybrid vehicles, new, even more realistic vehicle physics, a LEAGUES mode in which you can challenge other players, and a new Rally Sweden environment with six brand-new special stages. Share livery and stickers with the community. It also has in-game team creation and management.”
WRC Generations will launch on October 13 on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series, PC (Steam, and we hope they won’t switch to the Epic Games Store a few weeks from launch, which happened before!), PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. The PC and the Nintendo Switch port might launch later, though.
