Bigben Officially Announce WRC 8, Coming to All Platforms

Bigben, together with developer Kylotonn — after taking a year out following 2017’s WRC 7 — will once again attempt to build on the licensed FIA World Rally Championship (WRC) series with their next instalment, WRC 8, due out sometime this September. Boasting, as you might expect, an improved roster of features including better visuals, more technical routes and a more detailed and content-rich career mode, perhaps one of the more interesting additions this time round is the inclusion of dynamic weather systems.

Dynamic weather will, Bigben claim, increase realism not just in the environment but also in one’s tactics as you attempt to try to find the best middle-ground to combat any manner of weather that may show up, aided by additional tips and information provided by your team. WRC 8 boasts over a hundred stages spread across 14 countries, with drivers featured covering both the WRC 2 and Junior WRC leagues as well. WRC 8 is planned to release across PS4, Xbox One, Switch & PC. Check out the first bit of gameplay in the video below.
