Bigben and Kylotonn have announced that WRC 8 will release on Nintendo Switch, the official FIA World Rally Championship (WRC) 2019 game.
The developer has promised to “go above and beyond WRC 7” thanks to community feedback and collaboration with the eSports WRC Championship. That means that you can expect better graphics, more technical routes, smoother pace notes, and a more comprehensive career mode, as well as improvements to the steering requirements and realistic vehicle physics.
You will have the chance to choose your driver from the official teams of the 2019 season marked by the return of Sébastien Ogier (6 times World Champion) from Citroën Racing, accompanied by Esapekka Lappi. Toyota will try to defend its 2018 manufacturers’ title with Jari-Matti Latvala, Kris Meeke, and Ott Tänak.
While 2019 is also marked by the return of the nine-time World Champion and WRC legend, Sébastien Loeb, driving this year for Hyundai Motorsport in support of Thierry Neuville, Andreas Mikkelsen and Dani Sordo. And, M-Sport Ford will rely on Elfyn Evans and Teemu Suninento to draw attention again.
These will also be WRC 2, Junior WRC drivers and historic models that will be revealed soon, with more than 100 special stages in 14 countries to overcome – complete with a randomized dynamic weather system that will constantly change your driving experience. Beyond that, you can upgrade your car and develop your team in the career mode.
WRC 8 will release for Nintendo Switch worldwide in September 2019.
