World Rally Championship, also known as WRC, is a famous rally race sports videogame series developed by various developers over the years. Right now it’s licensed to Codemasters, a UK-based developing studio subsidiary of Electronic Arts. The studio has regained its license after 18 years, which is supposed to be for 4-5 years.
- The New World Rally Championship video game will feature a car-building mode.
- An interview by Insider Gaming with an internal source has brought this information.
- No release date for the game is out yet.
WRC is a video game based on the rally sports championship of the same name. It has been a particularly popular mechanical sport, not on par with Formula 1, but still, it has its dedicated fanbase.
Codemasters secured the license deal in 2020, which kickstarts in 2023 and climaxes in 2027. And with the deal secured, the studio announced its plans to release the latest WRC game in 2023.
Colin McRae Rally 3, released in 2002, was the last WRC licensed rally game developed by Codemasters.
It was great news for the fans of the game because they had loved Codemasters’ release of the game two decades ago. And they were excited about the prospective changes that the studio might bring to the series.
Their anticipation isn’t going to waste because, as reported by Insider Gaming, the developers plan to introduce customized building of cars from scratch. They have also included in-game currency to make the build more realistic.
An insider told the gaming website,
It’s understood that all aspects of your rally car can be built from the ground up, starting with your drivetrain where you can pick a front, mid, or rear-engined drive.
From there, your engine, differential, gearbox, clutch, radiator, suspension, brakes, and exhaust can all be bought. Prices of the items will depend on the condition of the parts, with used and worn parts costing far less than brand-new ones.”
The players will be able to change the outlook of their cars as well as the interior of them, like the front bumper, steering wheel, digital displays, seatbelt design, rear bumper, wheels, and even mudguards.
The website also reports that “players will be able to build multiple builds of a car” and “swap parts if needed.”
About the build of the game, the following is what the insider had to say,
It’s understood that WRC has been built on the foundations of the canceled DiRT title that was meant to release sometime soon, with the idea being to save time and money based on both games’ similarities.”
This amount of customization is new WRC series and it is sure to please the fans. The game is scheduled to be released in 2023. No exact date has been provided by Codemasters.
