    Bigben Games have released a new trailer for the upcoming WRC 7... introducing the 13 official FIA World Rally Championship locations with the Ford Fiesta WRC.

    World Rally has found itself in something of a state of neglect in recent years, however unlike most FIA run World Championship events, the series has seen something of a revival in recent times with aggressive new cars and a premium placed on the visual and audio impact of this series, the WRC is very quickly pulling itself back up to the level of it's heyday from the mid 1990's.

    With such a rapidly improving series, game developers Bigben Games have been forced to raise the bar higher in their digital recreation of this spectacular championship. Now boasting both the new for 2017 cars and their earlier counterparts from the older regulation set, the latest in a long line of officially licenced WRC games is very close to receiving a public release on console and PC.

    As the build-up continues ahead of its September launch, Bigben have released another new trailer from this potentially exciting title, showcasing the many wild and varied locations due to appear in WRC 7. Titled 'Ford Fiesta RS Around the World' and coming in at a little over one minute, the new trailer really does a good job of detailing the wide variety of conditions available in the new game. Check it out below:




    WRC 7 will release for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC September 2017.

    I realy dont think so ..... DR have no rival in rally simulation racing games, not even the D4 :D For me is the DR still the best rally simulation. Talking abaut simulations not arcades .... i have more than 800 hrs in DR the same in RBR, i try every WRC title but not one of them was close to these two games...... just my opinion, thx for understanding :p

    Stages look awesome, but a bit wide, physics I can't say anything about since I haven't tried, and cool to see some weather and different times of the day. I stay skeptical but open-minded, I have nothing against a good arcade rally game. Hope too see a review here on RD later :)

    Or maybe not actually. Seems like my work internet will not allow me to move the thread :(

    Any staffies around to help, if not I'll do it this evening when I get home.

    Looks okay from my first impression. Perhaps it could be more enjoyable than DiRT 4? I'll wait and see...

    It's been 12 years since we've had a properly good WRC game :whistling:

    Its Graphics looks way better than Dirt 4 has (Dirt 4 is the Disappointment of the Year Award winner - for Me)

    I hope there will release a demo - i dont't wanna pay for another thrash game like D4

    Wphiew! It looks really great!
    It is probably a CGI not a proper gameplay, but it really looks good. Maybe this time...

    I tried it during Rally Finland and was positively surprised. The official WRC 7 booth on the other hand had crappy hardware and tons of noise coming from the seats around you and therefore it was hard to concentrate properly or make some deeper analysis but the game left positive vibes. Braking and cornering felt a little dead but can't say how much of it was because of FFB, physics or the plasticky steering wheel/pedals. At least it was easy to spun the car when coming out of hairpins so there's no another D4 disaster incoming.. :)

    If you don't expect hardcore simulation this might be a title that gets you excited. It was good fun to drive and inputs made sense.

    After the total disappointment of Dirt 4 the door is wide open for WRC 7 to be a success. They have the official cars, which are fantastic to watch and listen to in real life, and also the chance to recreate the best of the official stages. Content wise they have it made! Just got to convert it into an experience that will keep both the casual player and the more hardcore gamer happy.

    I have not played any of the previous WRC games but have the itch for a good rally game, hoping WRC 7 is the one.

    the only rally simulation at the moment is the old tracks of rsrbr in assetto corsa and the rally cars in assetto corsa.dirt rally was just ok to me not a sim especially the tarmac physics but i must say i enjoy gravel a lot.wrc series i havent try not even one title for the simple reason that they dont support multiple devises,so my pedal or my dd wheel does not work.neither my triple screen setup.i would be happy to try wrc 7 but i doubt it ll have support of the above.i feel that is a huge gap in the market of a proper rally sim and i hope g rally will fill that gap.

    Im definitely looking forward to this. Especially after seeing a couple of videos from VVV.

    This one is especially telling in 1) the lighting, and 2) the track and its variety, obviously because its actually real.



    To note, the "AFFONT!" thing that he shouts is apparently a bug and has been rectified :thumbsup:

    + Roads aren't as wide as a motorway
    + When the car nudges the barrier, it visually does more than just scratch the paintwork
    Looking allright so far :thumbsup: Can't hear anything as I'm watching at work atm! :confused:
