WRC 7 Gameplay

A new trailer for Kylotonn’s rally racing game WRC 7 has been released. The video stars the 2017 Ford Fiesta RS WRC, which will be driven by four-time champion Sébastien Ogie. WRC 7 is set to release in Europe on September 26, 2017. It’ll come out on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.

Here’s the official press release:

In January 2017, four-time WRC World Champion Sébastien Ogier joined M-Sport World Rally Team, and a strong line-up that already included rising stars Ott Tänak and Elfyn Evans.  Behind the wheel of the aggressive and more powerful 2017 Fiesta WRC, he adapted quickly and notably won Rallye Monte-Carlo and Vodafone Rally de Portugal. During the season’s first 10 rallies, the car has claimed four victories, 14 podiums, 56 special stage wins and led for 53 stages.

WRC 7 lets the player travel to the four corners of the Earth while participating in the World Championship’s 13 rallies, spread across 15 countries on 4 continents. Players can select the driver of their choice and put their skills to the test on difficult technical tracks. Snow, gravel, asphalt, mud… each rally brings a unique challenge on upgraded roads that are narrower, longer, more dangerous, and more realistic.

For more on the upcoming racing game, check out our hands-on E3 WRC 7 preview. Here’s a snippet of what Chandler Wood had to say:

Graphically the game is quite impressive and the atmosphere of each of the tracks comes through, whether it’s raining, snowing, or sunny, and no matter which continent you find yourself racing on. Each continent will have a super race, a massive challenging track that runs for nearly 20 minutes, where you can take in the little environmental details throughout the course of the race. And what would a racing game be without a damage system? WRC 7 will damage your cars (well, ok, I was the one damaging my own car with terrible driving), and that damage will impact how your car can control and handle on the track dynamically.

WRC 7 is a very specific type of driving game. Rally cars are a whole different class of vehicles than those that would grace a game like Project CARS, and Kylotonn has done an incredible job in recreating that specific part of the racing community, and fans will love the latest when it finally releases later this year.

WRC 7 releases in Europe on September 26, 2017 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
