WRC 8 Switch Details and Career Mode

I am extremely happy to report the Switch version of Bigben’s rally game is coming in September and going to have all the same features and game engine as the other versions. Just with an understandable drop in graphical fidelity. This will mean the gameplay will be the same across consoles and will also mark the first time WRC hits the Switch.

WRC 8 is having a massive overhaul compared to last year’s version, featuring twice as many special stages and a completely new in depth career mode. Check out the trailer and press release below.

The new Career Mode in WRC 8mimics 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!
