Nacon and KT Racing have revealed this year’s WRC game, WRC Generations. WRC Generations marks the start and also the end of a new era for the official game bearing the World Rally Championship series license.
This will mark Nacon’s final hurrah with the official WRC license as beginning the next year, the rights will be going to Codemasters, or rather EA. KT Racing, or Kylotonn as they used to be known, were responsible for the official rally game series starting at WRC 5. Milestone developed the first 4 numbered WRC games.
But this year’s title also marks the start of a new generation of WRC Rally1 cars. The Hyundai i20 N Rally1, Toyota GR Yaris Rally1 and Ford Puma Rally1 now have a hybrid system. Its previous internal combustion engine is now paired with electric motors.
The added electric power will change how you will be hustling and chucking the rally cars as WRC Generations reflect these changes in the physics and sound design.
Also, you will be able to drive at least 37 other legendary rally cars from across the WRC history in 165 different Special Stages, including the 13 rallies in the official 2022 season of WRC (which adds a new location this year, Sweden). This is one of the biggest track count for a rally game.
Career mode, livery editor and the neat co-driver mode added post-launch from WRC 10 will be available in WRC Generations. New to this entry is League Mode, a series of daily and weekly challenges that is the same for everyone where you can compete on the leaderboards, and a Teams system.
WRC Generations is releasing on October 13 for the PS4, PS5, PC (Steam, Epic Games Store), Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S, with a Nintendo Switch version coming at a later date.
