Milestone and PQube have together announced the release date for WRC 4, the next world rallying championship game that will also, incidentally, be the official tie in game of this season. The game will launch on PlayStation 3, PlayStation Vita, Xbox 360, and Windows based PCs in October 2013.
The newest game features a spate of improvements over previous titles in the franchise, including new lighting and weather effects, an all new Career mode, and new enhancements to the visuals and UI for added realism and immersion.
“We’re really happy to be part of this exciting WRC 4 announcement and to announce so many new features in the 2013 version of the game,” affirms Milestone’s Luisa Bixio.
“This brand new chapter, different from the previous reboot of the series, will include many of the improvements requested by the community. A lot of the features that we’ve seen on the official Facebook page or received by mail have been incorporated. We’re convinced that WRC 4 represents a step forward for the series and will be appreciated by players,” concludes Bixio.
Dave Pain, Managing Director of PQube added:- “Milestone are creating fantastic games and we are delighted to continue our partnership with them to bring their games to the UK market. WRC3 surpassed all expectations in the UK and WRC has once again become an established franchise here. With a massive marketing campaign including TV support, and the significant new additions in WRC4 this will be a must stock item for UK retail.”
