EA Sports WRC announced
First licensed rally game from EA coming later this year
Electronic Arts has announced EA SPORTS WRC, the official game of the FIA World Rally Championship.
This marks the first title from EA since taking over the official rights for WRC from publisher Nacon and developers Kylotonn, who have handled the series since 2015.
Combining the power of the Unreal Engine with the DiRT Rally series physics, EA SPORTS WRC promises to include 18 official FIA World Rally Championship locations and over 600km of unforgiving asphalt, gravel, and snow stages. The game also promises 10 current WRC, WRC2, and Junior WRC vehicles and 68 of the most iconic rally cars spanning 60 years of the sport.
The introduction of Builder allows players to build their own modern-era rally car. Select the chassis, body shells, and all-important mechanical parts before customising the interior and exterior, finally personalising with the livery editor. Put the car through its paces and make any necessary adjustments before competing for the World Championship against the best competition WRC has to offer.
The game also aims to offer 32 player cross-platform multiplayer. Clubs serve as community-built hubs offering custom multi-surface tournaments with rallying at any location and time of year. Alongside personalised events, Moments, updated daily in-game, give players the chance to relive pivotal scenarios from the 2023 season alongside classic events from the sport’s archives.
All players who pre-order digitally receive up to three days of early access starting October 31, 2023, and five VIP passes, each containing additional post-launch content, vanity packs consisting of liveries and apparel.
EA SPORTS WRC will be available on November 3, for PC, Xbox Series X|S, and PS5.
