WRC 8 Physics Dev Diary
In a few weeks time, Bigben Interactive and the Kylotonn Games Studio will release the newest iteration of the official FIA World Rally Championship game franchise.
Bigben Interactive called the newest iteration of the official WRC franchise the most complete and authentic official WRC simulation ever made. WRC 8 will feature new off-road physics for all surfaces, a completely redesigned career mode, extreme and dynamic weather conditions, 50 teams, 14 countries, 100 stages, weekly challenges, and an eSports mode.
In the latest Dev Diary video, Kylotonn Physics Designer Jérémie Lolieux tells us how the dev team has re-written the physics in order to create the most complete and authentic official WRC simulation possible.
According to Jérémie, about 70% of the WRC7 physics are rewritten for use in WRC8 which will lead to a more predictable car behavior. To make sure the implemented data was correct, the WRC8 dev team collaborated with Rally preparator PH Sport and the Citroén Rally division.
WRC 8 will be available the 5th of September 2019 on PlayStation®4, Xbox One, PC CD, PC via Steam and in October on Nintendo Switch.
