Times like these are trying, of that there is no doubt. That’s why sometimes it’s nice to just turn your brain off and go playing in the mud. That’s what is promised with the upcoming WRC 9, which was announced earlier in the year. The game is all about off road racing, focusing on smaller and speedier cars such as the Ford Fiesta or Toyota Yaris. It also seems you’ll be able to race around New Zealand this year, too.
As announced in a press release from NACON, it was confirmed that one of the rallies you would be able to take part in is Rally New Zealand. It will be returning to the FIA World Rally Championship after being absent for 7 years. You’ll face various challenges in the coastline and wild lands of Auckland. This will join Safari Rally in Kenya and Rally Japan as the three new rallies this season.
WRC 9 will release September 3rd for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC (exclusively on Epic Games Store). The game will also come to Switch, Xbox Series X and PS5, but dates have not been pinned down for those versions yet.
