WRC 10 Header

A big content update is out now for WRC 10, adding the 2021 Acropolis Rally and five new historical events to take on, including Richard Burns’ victory on the 2000 Safari Rally Kenya in his Subaru Impreza WRC.

The Acropolis Rally already featured in WRC 10, but it was initially designed and included with the intention of being a part of the game’s celebration of WRC’s 50th anniversary. However, with changes to 2021’s championship seeing the Greek rally return for the first time in seven years, Kylotonn has brought the Acropolis Rally up to the modern era. The update brings 3 special stages in a 2021 style to the experience and adds it to the game’s Career mode.

If you’re more about the old stuff that WRC 10 is bringing to the table, then you’ll be overjoyed by having five new anniversary events to the game, following on from the three that were added in October.

Stepping back to landmark races and iconic partnerships between man and machine, the five new events are:

  • Rally Argentina in 1994 with Didier Auriol and Bernard Occelli in their Toyota Celica Turbo 4WD
  • Rally Argentina in 2004 with Carlos Sainz and Marc Martí in their Citroen Xsara WRC
  • Rally Germany in 2002 with Sébastien Loeb and Daniel Elena in their Citroën Xsara WRC
  • Safari Rally in Kenya in 2000 with Richard Burns and Robert Reid in their Subaru Impreza S5 WRC ’99
  • Rally Mexico in 2016 with Jari-Matti Latvala and Miikka Anttila in their Volkswagen Polo R WRC

Finally, the Club mode that allows players to create their own online events and championships now allows for a realistic mode to be selected by the organiser. This makes damage carry over from one stage to the next, the use of service parks for repairs, the requirement to use service parks to switch tyres, and imposes a rule where can only attempt a stage a single time. Just like in real life, but without the personal risks to your health and safety…

We had great things to say about WRC 10 when it released back in September. In our 8/10 review, Dom said:

“WRC 10 is a great rally package that hones many of the WRC 9’s strengths to a finer edge. There’s a couple of visual glitches that need working on, but all in all, rally fans will love what KT Racing have put together this year.”
