XBox One WRC 7: FIA World Rally Championship
Release Date: 29 September 2017
The latest version of the highly successful game will feature the dynamic new 2017 World Rally Cars, which have thrilled fans around the world in one of the most exciting and unpredictable starts to a WRC season.
WRC 7 will present current car liveries from all four manufacturer teams in the 2017 championship - Citroën Abu Dhabi Total World Rally Team, Hyundai Motorsport, M-Sport World Rally Team and Toyota Gazoo Racing World Rally Team.
Gamers will be able to choose from all 13 WRC rounds and take their pick from all the sport’s leading drivers, including four-time world champion Sébastien Ogier, Thierry Neuville, Kris Meeke and Jari-Matti Latvala.
WRC 7 will also include the Ford Fiesta R2T, the car campaigned by all competitors in the FIA Junior World Rally Championship. There will also be a special bonus car.
The WRC game has sold more than a million copies in the last two years and French development studio Kylotonn has focused on producing a more extreme and realistic update to further enhance player enjoyment.
The design of the special stages has been refined to ensure bumpier roads and tougher driving conditions. Longer tests provide up to 15 minutes of gameplay to test skills and concentration to the limit.
Sébastien Chardonnet, 2013 WRC 3 champion, has provided expert advice to Kylotonn, which has also incorporated feedback from team engineers into the new game.
WRC 7 will form the base of the eSports WRC Championship for a third year. Competition in the second season of the online series is fierce, with global gamers battling to win a top prize Hyundai i20 road car in multi-player tournaments run simultaneously with WRC rounds.
