WRC 10 - Drastically improved physics say Loeb

Wrc10 1.jpg


Another year, another WRC title. This time however we are being promised to "drastically improved physics" at least by rally Legend Sebastien Loeb

WRC10 is just around the corner and I for one am very excited. If you haven't tried WRC 9 it's probably worth waiting for the 10th version of this series to drop before investing your hard earned cash, but if WRC 9 was anything to go by, this will be an insta-buy for me.

I get it, I know that it hasn't always been a great "sim" as it seemed to be focused on attracting a broader audience, but last year something changed with WRC9, it just felt a million times better than the previous titles. The physics had been overhauled and it just felt good to drive, especially on tarmac. The latest rumblings coming from the team at Nacon is that yet more improvements have been made to the physics and driving experience so that can only be a good thing.

Nacon could hardly have invited anyone better than rally legend Sebastien Loeb to talk about the improvements WRC 10 is going to deliver. The most successful rally driver in history praised the reworked physics in the game, stating in a video shown during Nacon Connect 2021 that they had "drastically improved, and whether on tarmac or gravel, the sensations are very realistic."


Content-wise, rally fans can look forward to a celebration of the World Rally Championship's 50th anniversary: The sim will include historical rallies, with the 2002 Rally Germany, the 2004 Rally Sweden and the 2018 Rally Spain being shown specifically as they were Loeb's first overall win, first win on snow and his last victory respectively. "You will find out about everything that's happened during those 50 years in WRC", said the Frenchman.

Another hint at an era that is going to be included was shown as a pre-order bonus: Racers who order the game early will receive Colin McRae's 1997 Subaru Impreza as a bonus, plus an extra historic event. WRC 10 is set to release on September 2nd - so players have lots of time to speculate which eras of WRC, like the fearsome Group B cars of the 1980s or the icons of the 60s and 70s will be included.

When I buy WRC 10 I will be sure to share my thoughts with you all. In the meantime, tell us if you are going to give WRC 10 a try in the comments below.

WRC 10 is due for release in September 2021 and will be available to buy on Steam (again, honestly, thank you Nacon for putting it on steam)

hahaha I know I am anything but credible, but I have been driving sims for 20 years and my favourite sims are rF2, ACC and RaceRoom. I don't think WRC9 was on that level but it wasn't a million miles off. So i'm hopeful for WRC 10.
Oh shoot, that wasnt meant for you specifically, sorry Steve! I meant someone from the simracing world (not Loeb or similar), which could easily be you :)

All good my friend. I think I know just the person who could give us a good view on it. Leave that with me...
 
if the final game impresses me like the Demo iam really hyped. WRC 9 is a great game but this..we will see... :cautious:

Let us not forget that the game carrying his name is trash. So be highly sceptical of what he says, regardless of all his achievements as rally driver.

Every year, WRC game claims to improve enormously, and every year it fails to do so. I will believe it when I see it.

Did you try WRC9 ? It was one of my favourite drives. WRC8 wasn’t anywhere near what 9 delivered.
 
I’ve been pretty down on the WRC series of games on the PS4… found myself missing the old PS2 titles infact! But WRC 9 really was brilliant.
 
I was thoroughly disappointed after downloading the Demo and tried it out !
WRC 9 who I like almost as much as RBR felt much better in every way ( sound and overall feel ) !

I really hope that KT's WRC 10 advances just as much or more like they did between WRC 7, 8 and 9 !

I'm an old RBR fan, but I picked up WRC8 on sale and found it quite reasonable. Was going to try WRC9 but since it wasn't available on Steam, I have held off. With WRC10 returning to Steam, I'm certainly interested.
Will wait till I see reports from the final release, but there is a good chance I might try this one.
 
Loved the demo, they definitely improved the weight transfer this time and the cars don't feel like empty boxes if you drive over a rock. They have a decent sense of weight now.

The tarmac is better than Dirt Rally 2 by quite a lot now.
