Nintendo Switch owners will be getting their first rally title sometime in the not too distant future in the form of V-Rally 4. The game is published and developed by Bigben and Kylotonn Racing Games both of which have released some new gameplay footage showing what to expect from the adrenaline fuelled racer.
Get ready for an adrenaline rush in today’s gameplay videos, one taking place in the particularly humid conditions of Malaysia and the other in Kenya.
A rally is made up of several timed stages called “specials” that severely test a driver’s nerves. To be a successful rally driver, you need to love risk, be able to keep your head straight when going through tricky areas, and have the ability to adapt when unexpected weather complicates matters. Your co-driver’s notes are often critical.
In V-Rally 4’s rally mode, the highly varied environments of the specials require you to draw on all your driving skills. Speed through the breathtaking environments of Malaysia, Japan, Siberia, Kenya, Sequoia Park and Monument Valley! Pay attention to your co-driver’s notes displayed on the screen so you won’t be surprised by a tight bend!
Entire road networks have been created for the rally environments, with an impressive level of detail. In addition to the pre-defined specials, V-Rally 4 provides an even more unpredictable challenge through the specials generator. Just like rally organizers, the specials generator randomly opens and closes road intersections, which means there are hundreds of possible routes through each environment. Your route is not a collection of pre-defined roads and bends: it uses parts of the road network, and each special is different, with unique characteristics. That makes it rather difficult to learn the bends by heart. Once at the starting line, you’ll need to demonstrate courage and concentration!
Each discipline provides a unique driving experience so that V-Rally 4 racing fans can test their skills and learn new driving techniques. Your versatility will also come in handy in career mode, which takes drivers around the world.
