WRC 8, the official video game of the FIA World Rally Championship, is now available for pre-orders. I have enjoyed the previous WRC games by Kylotonn, so I’m looking forward to seeing what they’ve introduced for the redesigned career mode, and the inclusion of 100 special stages set across 14 countries means this one of the biggest rally games to date. All this content along with having the official license makes WRC 8 a tantalising prospect for any WRC or rally fan!
As you can see from the screenshots and videos, it’s a beautiful looking game, and as long as they haven’t tampered with the excellent handling model from previous games too much, there is a lot of potential for WRC 8.
Kylotonn and publisher Bigben have revealed the different editions and pre-order bonus content of WRC 8, which is due to be released on the 5th of September 2019 on PlayStation®4, Xbox One, PC and in October on Nintendo Switch™. Three different editions will be available: the basic edition, the digital Deluxe edition and the physical Collector edition.
Pre-orders for any edition of the game will receive the RWD Legends pack, which includes: Lancia 037, the last rear-wheel drive car to win the World Rally Championship; and the Porsche 911 GT3 RS RGT, a powerful monster of a rally car.
Digital Deluxe edition content:
The digital Deluxe edition includes the base game, early access to the game 48 hours before official release, crew members to add to your staff in Career mode, and the Legendary Cars pack. This pack includes three legendary WRC cars from the 70s, 80s and 90s: the Alpine A110, Ford Escort RS and Lancia Delta HF Integrale.
Physical Collector edition content:
The Collector edition includes the base game, a three-month subscription to the WRC+ All Live TV service (this provides over 25 hours of live coverage of each rally, expert analysis and behind-the-scenes reporting), experienced crew members to add to your staff in Career mode and the Legendary Cars pack. Players who buy this edition will also receive an exclusive WRC-themed, collector edition, metal box.
