The WRC series first debuted in 2001 with the title ‘World Rally Championship’ developed by the now defunct British video game developer Evolution Studios and published by Sony Interactive Entertainment exclusively for PlayStation platforms. Evolution continued to develop four more sequels until 2005 featuring authentic locations, cars and drivers.
Players can don the race boots of more than 50 drivers, headlined by reigning world champion Ott Tänak, six-time title-winner Sébastien Ogier, Thierry Neuville and early season stars Elfyn Evans and Kalle Rovanperä.
The career mode in WRC 8 was lauded as one of the best in any motorsport game. It has been improved further in WRC 9, with enhanced gameplay mechanics, new opportunities to upgrade gamers’ teams, a wider variety of events and a stronger link to what real-world WRC teams are doing throughout the season.
