Under the umbrella of Electronic Arts, the cherished driving experience, celebrated for its authenticity on gravel in Codemasters’ previous titles, has undergone refinements and is now known as the Dynamic Handling System.

Notably, EA is classifying this new offering as a sim racing title, instilling hope that, despite the myriad of new features, the core driving experience remains true to the spirit of rally racing.

For newcomers, there’s the option of a simplified pacenote system and accessible handling settings. However, for the hardcore enthusiasts seeking a true test of skill, the game designer and reigning European Rally Championship ERC3 champion, Jon Armstrong, has had a hand in crafting a setup system that mirrors the choices of a professional driver.

While the physics remain familiar, the graphics have undergone a significant transformation. EA SPORTS WRC marks a departure from the company’s proprietary Ego engine, which has been a staple since its introduction in 2007, in favor of the cutting-edge Unreal Engine technology platform developed by Epic Games.

Ross Gowing, Senior Creative Director at Codemasters, expressed his enthusiasm, saying, “This is the rally game we’ve always wanted to make, combining our studio’s deep knowledge and expertise with the power of the official WRC license, representing the pinnacle of rally motorsport.”

The game introduces exciting new features like the “Builder” mode, allowing players to create their own modern-era car, adhering to current rules, and compete as if they were a newly formed fourth manufacturer team. Additionally, the “Moments” feature offers a daily challenge mode, blending historical content with scenarios from the ongoing real-world WRC season.

While the full list of the 68 classic cars is yet to be confirmed, fans can look forward to iconic vehicles like Colin McRae’s 1998 Subaru Impreza. For those who prefer contemporary content, there will be 10 vehicles from this year’s WRC, WRC2, and Junior WRC classes, complete with matching liveries, available at launch.

The return of the genre-defining clubs feature, allowing asynchronous competition across an event, is sure to please fans, along with the addition of online multiplayer support for up to 32 players across multiple platforms. EA SPORTS WRC will be available on PC (Steam and Epic Games Store), PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X|S, with no release planned for PlayStation 4 or Xbox One.

While the official release date for EA SPORTS WRC is in November, those who pre-order the digital edition can enjoy three days of early access starting from October 31.
