The release date for the first official FIA World Rally Championship game in five years has been announced as October 8th, 2010, when WRC hits the stores for Playstation 3, XBox 360 and PC.
The game has been developed by Milestone, and published by Black Bean Games – the same team behind the SBKX World Superbikes game.
It features all the cars, drivers and co-drivers from the current WRC season, along with the P-WRC, S-WRC and J-WRC support classes, plus 78 different rally stages and over 550km of roads from 13 countries.
You get a single-player career mode ‘Road to the WRC’ with 50 different trophies, plus ‘many online multiplayer game modes’.
In terms of graphics, there’s a full 3D in car view, plus car damage effects, and the tantalising opportunity for breakable objects on the trackside. Of course, this being rallying, you’ll have an in-game management system to repair the damage you may have encountered.
So if you fancy being Sebastien Loeb, Mikko Hirvonen or Daniel Sordo, here’s your chance.
As you’d expect, you can already place a pre-order from stores including Amazon: Pre-Order WRC – FIA World Rally Championship (2010)
