“WRC 8” is refining its gameplay in cooperation with the community and the best WRC eSports players

1 min read

Bigben and Kylotonn have, for the first time, presented WRC 8 (in Alpha) to the best WRC eSports players during “Community Days”.

Backed by the official 2019 license of the FIA World Rally Championship and its eSports experience, the WRC series is back with resolute simulation-centred gameplay, a dynamic weather system, and an entirely redesigned career mode. WRC 8 also offers more content than ever with 102 special stages spread across the championship’s 14 countries, and a selection of historic cars that have left their mark in WRC history.

In order to refine the gameplay and the sensation of driving, Bigben and Kylotonn exclusively invited some of the best players in the WRC eSports community to try out an alpha version of WRC 8. Physics, graphics, weather, level design, and game mode – all the new features were presented in order to get the players’ feedback. Two days of work went into perfecting the physics expected by the community, further supplementing the feedback already collected from professional drivers.

“First impressions are actually really good. I can see there’s definitely been a step up from WRC 7 and Kylotonn have made a step forward in what they’ve produced,” said Jonathan ‘Jonno’ Holmes, 2017 and 2018 eSports WRC finalist.

Play as the best drivers in the world championship and experience the competition as if you were actually there!
WRC 8 will be available September 2019 on Playstation® 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
