    Bigben and Kylotonn racing games have announced the release of WRC 6, the official game of the FIA World Rally Championship due to arrive this autumn for PlayStation®4, Xbox One, and PC/Steam.

    After several underwhelming games under the official WRC banner, Bigben and Kylotonn Games took over the franchise last year with the release of a somewhat disappointing title to mark the first foray into the World Rally Championship franchise. Despite a new development team behind the title, WRC 5 felt very much like its earlier predessors and unsurprisingly fell quickly by the wayside in comparison to the highly regarding Codemasters DiRT Rally title.

    Bigben and Kylotonn Games have acknowledged community criticisms regarding WRC 5 and have made strong promises that after using their first title as a learning and development experience, WRC 6 will present a much more realistic and challenging experience for players to enjoy. Although short on anything much more than a few early screenshots a throwaway marketing quotes, it does appear that the studio are interested in producing a more stimulating experience and early indications suggests the unreasonably wide road surfaces and short stage lengths will be addressed in WRC 6. This is excellent news for rally fans as a realistic and challenging rally event is one of the most important aspects to get right when creating a front running rally title, especially considering the already outstanding DiRT Rally currently suffers from a lack of variety in stage locations at the present time.

    “We spent the last 8 months, since the release of WRC 5, collecting and studying all the feedback from the community to improve the experience and take it to a new level” says Alain Jarniou, Game Director at Kylotonn.

    “The experience gained from WRC 5 helped the team to completely understand the expectations of racing fans when it comes to rallying. Roads were too wide in WRC 5? They will be narrower and more bumpy in WRC 6. Stages were sometimes too short? We created new longer stages and reworked everything to make them longer and more challenging. These are just a few examples of the massive improvements we are bringing to WRC 6 and we already know that players will definitely appreciate these changes”,
    concludes Alain Jarniou.

    “If you enjoyed WRC 5, then you will love WRC 6,” WRC Promoter managing director Oliver Ciesla said. “The developers have introduced significant improvements to make the playing experience even more exciting and true to life, while remaining faithful to its core aims of being an all-action game which takes in classic rallies and legendary special stages on all types of road surfaces.”

    Due for release on PlayStation®4, Xbox One, and PC/Steam in Autumn 2016, WRC 6 will feature all 14 rounds of the official FIA World Rally Championship as well as all the star drivers and a wide selection of WRC 2 teams and competitors from the Junior WRC category. eSports again make an appearance in the new title with amendments in terms of access, rules, and format which will be unveiled nearer the release of the game.

    The FIA World Rally Championship is a reverting form of motorsport with some of the very finest drivers and machines in the world competing across beautiful and often dangerous terrain to finish the season as World Champion. The series deserves a rally game that can make it proud, lets hope Bigben and Kylotonn Racing Games can deliver what many fans have been waiting for.

  2. Well, at last they are trying to improve their games. Something Milestone can learn from that. So lets wait what WRC 6 is going to be. The 9 patches for WRC 5 improved the game a bit; steering is fixed, speedometer finally in cockpit, triple screens and some more fixes / features.

    If Kylotonn take a look at what Dirt Rally does good, what Dirt Rally does bad, what they can improve over Dirt Rally. Than they can be a good competitor for Codemasters. Competition is good. Monopoly that Dirt Rally has isn't. Competition means innovation. Dirt Rally is the true king of Rallying now. Along with Richard Burns Rally. (Rip Burns).

    Only what Dirt Rally has to improve are physics. longer stages, way less forgiving damage system, better repair system (repair parts, not percentages.) and somewhat the presentation of the career, etc. Maybe some more but I am forgetting what.

    So Kylotonn has a lot of work to do. 8 months means a lot of stuff, so.. lets wait. no hype, just wait.

    Bigben and Kylotonn... it is fine to try to improve a game; it is right to remedy the shortcomings and errors made in previous versions but all this always on users' shoulders!
    Always the same thing happens... All those who bought WRC5 only a few months ago they are abandoned and will have to necessarily buy the new WRC6 game when this will be available!
    The usual marketing policies that look to gain at the expense of buyers!
    I really hope that Bigben and Kylotonn remember all those who have confided in them and maybe do a special discount to all the people who bought WRC5... a special price for existing users!
    It would not be an impossibility... a clear example is that of Reiza Studios of the Automobilista game that have made freely available their latest creation to all those who had bought the previous Game Stock Car Extreme, a proper and civil user respect!
  6. Better wheel support.
    I know I have a oldie (momo) but still... this is the only game that wont recognize it. Truth be told, that S.Loeb rally by Milestone recognize ti, but only steering, pedals don't work. Although they work in menus.:thumbsup: Not that it does have any sense. :alien:
    I have try it with keyboard and the game doesn't seems too shabby to me. But that can't be taken as some my review, since I couldn't try it with my wheel. Somewhat it reminds me of S.Loeb rally. Maybe it's the look of the game, I'm not sure now...
    And another thing I didn't mention earlier.
    A better wheel support.
    Oh, I mention it. Nevermind, that can't be overstated. :whistling:

    WRC 6 Face the Danger Trailer
    Guess by "Face the danger" they mean that you face the danger that when you buy the game, and when it's already too late, you can easily find out that wheel can not be recognized by the game ...or something like that. :rolleyes: Face the danger of very sparse wheel support list ! sic
