| WRC 8 – CAREER MODE OVERVIEW Lesquin, France, July 24, 2019 – |
Bigben and the development studio KT Racing have released a video to showcase the completely redesigned Career Mode for WRC 8, the official video game of the FIA World Rally Championship.
The career is traditionally the most popular and most played game mode. After discussions with the community, the development team wanted to offer content that meets fans’ expectations in a deep and varied game mode. Benoit Gomes, the game’s Lead Game Designer, explores the unique features and depth of this mode in detail.
Watch the video on WRC 8’s Career Mode here:
The new Career Mode in WRC 8 mimics the real world and allows players to become a driver for a WRC team for the first time. Players must progress from season to season to compete in the WRC category and ultimately become world champion. By following several teams in different rallies, the developers managed to capture the key aspects of a successful season. Players must excel in three major areas that have been included in the game: Planning the calendar to decide which events to do in between rallies: training, manufacturer challenges, rest, classic events, etc. Managing a whole crew comprising six different and
interconnected job roles. Players must consider each of their unique characteristics and use them strategically in each rally. Upgrading the crew through R&D and a skill tree, which evolves depending on player choices. Every decision has an impact on progression and on the morale of the crew (performance, reliability, etc.). The statistics available at the end of each rally also help players to refine their strategy, compare themselves to competitors and adjust their set-ups as necessary to climb the rankings, upgrade their car and recruit the right people for their team.
This is the most complete and authentic official WRC simulation ever made. New off-road physics for all surfaces, a completely redesigned Career Mode, extreme and dynamic weather conditions, 52 teams, 14 countries, over 100 special stages, weekly challenges and an eSports mode… Experience the most intense WRC yet!
WRC 8 will release in September 2019 on PlayStation®4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch™ and PC.
