Bigben Interactive release a new trailer outlining the redesigned Career Mode for upcoming rally racing video game, WRC 8.
WRC 8 – which is the official video game of the FIA World Rally Championship – is the fourth title in the franchise from French studio, Kylotonn, or KT Racing as they are now branded. Although the studio is perhaps yet to reach the standard set by the likes of Codemasters and Turn 10, each game has been a steady improvement over the last, and that looks set to continue with this year’s instalment.
The new trailer showcases some of the changes and additions to this year’s career mode, many of which have been implemented following player feedback. The new Career Mode allows players to become a driver for a WRC team – from a total of 52 – for the first time, and progress season to season on the road to becoming world champion.
Between races players can now train, play classic events, complete manufacturer challenges, or, according to the press release, rest. We like the sound of that. Teams members can now be managed through six interconnected job roles, with each having their own upgradable skill trees that evolve according to player choices.
Lead game designer, Benoit Gomes, takes a look at the improvements in the new WRC 8 trailer.
WRC 8 Career Mode Overview
WRC 8 also includes improved off-road physics, dynamic weather conditions, and over 100 special stages. The game will be released this September for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
