NACON and KT Racing Studio announced the release of the second free update for WRC 10, the official video game of the FIA World Rally Championship and includes new content such as rallies and a new car.
The Acropolis Rally: an icon of the championship returns
This new free update adds one of the most famous rallies in the WRC: the Acropolis Rally. With winding and dusty mountain roads, sometimes on cliffs, the Greek rally is known to be a particular challenge.
It returned to the official WRC calendar in 2021 after a seven-year absence and was won by Kalle Rovanperä with his second win of the season. The rally has been represented by a historic event since the start of WRC 10. The update now also brings three special stages of the 2021 version of the rally and also integrates them into the game’s career mode.
Five new anniversary events
As the anniversary edition of the championship, WRC 10 already features a large number of historic and important championship events since 1973. Following the three historic events added in October, five new events are now available in WRC 10. Famous driver and passenger duos will compete in their cars of the time:
- Rally Argentina 1994 with Didier Auriol and Bernard Occelli in their Toyota Celica Turbo 4WD
- Rally Argentina 2004 with Carlos Sainz and Marc Martí in their Citroën Xsara WRC
- Rallye Germany 2002 with Sébastien Loeb and Daniel Elena in their Citroën Xsara WRC
- Safari rally in Kenya in 2000 with Richard Burns and Robert Reid in their Subaru Impreza S5 WRC ’99
- Rally Mexico 2016 with Jari-Matti Latvala and Miikka Anttila in their Volkswagen Polo R WRC
The “Club” mode becomes more realistic
In “Club” mode, which allows fans to create their own online events and championships, an additional “realistic” option is now available which increases the level of difficulty even further. With this option, the damage caused to the vehicle can be carried over to the next stage and one or more service parks can be set up and that’s includes the mandatory passage to a service park to equip the car with suitable tires, if the road surface is between two Stages changes. In addition, in this new setting, the stages are played in a tour and cannot be repeated.
The update of WRC 10 is available now for PC, PlayStation®4, PlayStation®5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X | S and includes new content such as rallies and a new car. The Nintendo version will be available at a later date.
