Kylotonn Games has published the first images from their upcoming rally title, WRC 5 and now, the French dev team has finally given us the first glimpse of the next official World Rally Championship videogame.

Not much is known about the game, other than it's the first time the WRC series will appear on next-gen consoles. Kylotonn is now developing the series after taking the reins from Milestone, and so far the team had only shown a brief teaser trailer on facebook. We don't know yet if the series will shift towards a more sim-like handling style, but one can hope.
The images have been published on the game's official Facebook page and its website, and they show the M-Sport Ford Fiesta RS kicking up some dust in Mexico.

The game also has WRC driver Sebastien Chardonnet as its ambassador, who is contributing with his experience and helping the dev team with his advice. Once again, hopefully that'll result in a fun and convincing driving model.

What do you think of it? WRC 5 (PC, PS3, PS4, X360, X1 and Vita) will inevitably have to face its rival from Milestone, Sébastien Loeb Rally Evo (PC, PS4 and X1) when they both come out this autumn. It should be an interesting time for rally fans - stay tuned.

Still waiting for that feeling I had when I was playing Colin McCrea.

Lets hope for proper wheel support and decent FFB, something that has been absent from this series.

LMAO, noticed the rims too. Perhaps they only had the tarmac tyre/rim model done at that point. Wonder if the Fiesta will have the "Titanak" moniker in the final game, haha. On the other hand, with these two screenshots, they've shown more than MileStone has with Sébastien Loeb Rally Evo which was announced several months ago.

The first screenshots released for WRC5 already show a car in game. All we've seen of Loeb Rally so far is close up after close up of road surfaces.
We got three vidoes about making of the game already.
Or is it four now? :)

Milestone isn't developing this game. Milestone is developing Sebastian Loeb Rally Evo. This game is being developed by Kylotonn Games.
I've checked out what games Kylotonn Games have produced and I must say I am NOT very enthusiastic at all.

They appear to be an all arcade dev team sadly.

Their track record thus far has been rather poor, however they have hired some key people to help develop WRC 5 so I'm cautiously optimistic as long as they allow those key people to do what they do best.

I hope we get to prove you wrong then :p, myself and some other key members come from the complete opposite side of the fence in regards to Arcade, but we were not on the team previous to WRC5, thus I cannot speak for anything previous to WRC5 Kylotonn have done because I have never played it :D

I think it provides a solid basis for a WRC title, I enjoy running stages and pushing hard competing against my colleagues for the fastest stage times, so I certainly hope fans will too.
