The latest World Rally Championship video game will be heading to the Nintendo Switch, which is sure to please racing fans. The game is being developed by KT Racing and a release date for the Nintendo Switch version has yet to be announced. WRC 9 will be coming to the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC first. Here’s some of the new features to look forward to:
An Enhanced and More Challenging Career mode
Hailed as one of the best Career modes in any racing game, WRC 8 was a hit with rally fans. It returns in WRC 9 with enhanced gameplay mechanics, new opportunities to upgrade your team, a wider variety of events and a stronger link to what the real-world championship teams are doing throughout the year.
Even More Content
WRC 9 again includes extensive content with three new events added to the calendar: the return of Kenya’s iconic Safari Rally, Rally Japan and its challenging narrow asphalt roads, the beautiful scenery of Rally New Zealand and two other rallies with completely redesigned environments. Fans will also be able to take the wheel of new classic cars that have left their mark on the history of the WRC.
An Even More Realistic Game Experience
To improve and refine certain vehicle behaviors, the developers have again focused on the realism of car physics—including suspensions, braking and mass transfer—to take authenticity to the next level. This attention to detail faithfully reproduces the vehicles’ responsiveness on all surfaces and in all conditions found in the real championship. A special focus on sound also provides deeper immersion.
