EA Sports WRC Launches November 3rd

Electronic Arts is excited to introduce EA SPORTS WRC, the official game of the FIA World Rally Championship coming to PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC via EA App, Epic Store, and Steam on November 3, 2023.

Developed by the team behind the critically acclaimed DiRT Rally series, with over 25 years of off-road videogame heritage, EA SPORTS™ WRC is a truly next-generation rally game and the quintessential title for sim-racing enthusiasts.

“EA SPORTS™ WRC is the purest form of motorsport where every stage is a fight against the clock, the terrain, and yourself. 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.” – Ross Gowing, Senior Creative Director at Codemasters

A New Generation of Sim Racer
Taking the power of the Unreal Engine with the DiRT Rally series physics, EA SPORTS™ WRC delivers longer, more detailed stages than previously possible, with 18* official FIA World Rally Championship locations and over 600km of unforgiving asphalt, gravel, and snow stages.

Legends of the Modern and Historic Ages
EA SPORTS™ WRC boasts 10 current WRC, WRC2, and Junior WRC vehicles and 68 of the most iconic rally cars spanning 60 years of the sport.

Working together with official WRC teams and manufacturers, such as Ford, Toyota, and Hyundai, each vehicle is built to tackle every challenge they’ll face throughout the season. The hybrid-powered 4WD Rally1 cars are some of the fastest in the sport’s history, capable of incredible speeds while tackling gravity-defying jumps, deteriorating surfaces, and adverse weather.

 

 

Handling Authenticity
The advanced Dynamic Handling System refines Codemasters’ original model and gives players our most realistic off-road experience to date.

Taking feedback from drivers, including Jon Armstrong, our very own game designer and current European Rally Championship 3 Champion, players can choose the same professional driver set-up mirroring the experience drivers encounter every race week.

New players can personalise the handling, making adjustments to help them master the ultimate player versus environment off-road challenge. The realism extends to audio, with each car intricately replicated, and new pace notes, including simplified commands for rookie drivers, give much-needed information to the player as they battle through each stage.

Build Your Legacy
The introduction of Builder fulfils the dream of those longing to create their very own modern-era rally car. Select the chassis, body shells, and all-important mechanical parts before customising the interior and exterior, finally personalising with the livery editor. Put the car through its paces and make any necessary adjustments before competing for the World Championship against the best competition WRC has to offer.

 

 

Greater Multiplayer Connections
EA SPORTS™ WRC brings our fans together with 32 player cross-platform multiplayer, allowing for competition between friends and the wider rally community. Using EA Racenet, EA’s racing companion app, Clubs serve as community-built hubs offering custom multi-surface tournaments with racing at any location and time of year. Alongside personalised events, Moments, updated daily in-game, give players the chance to relive pivotal scenarios from the 2023 season alongside classic events from the sport’s archives.

Pre-order for Early Access
Pre-order EA SPORTS™ WRC to receive five VIP passes, each containing additional post-launch content, three vanity packs consisting of liveries and apparel, and up to three days of early access starting October 31, 2023.
