The world sure is in quite a state right now with the global pandemic coronavirus, so it’s nice to get down and dirty with some old school racing fun. WRC 9 was just announced to once again put us in the seat of the FIA Motorsport series of the same name. And it’s going to be coming to next gen as well.
You can see the announce trailer below as released via Xbox. Unfortunately, there isn’t a lot of gameplay, and it seems to be what little there is comes from the previous game in the franchise, WRC 8. That garnered high praise for its fun racing as well as strong campaign, so hopefully 9 will be similar. The game focuses more on smaller cars, such as a Ford Fiesta or Toyota Yaris, blazing on the off roads.
WRC 9 will release September 3rd for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC (via the Epic Games Store exclusively). Nintendo Switch, PS5 and Xbox Series X versions will also come, with more details coming later.
