The WRC championship is the most challenging motor racing competition in the world.

With the new dynamic weather system, climatic conditions have true-to-life effects:  rain and snowfall is now an important game feature as variable traction, different set-ups for each stage, tyre choice and shrewd use of the weather forecasting team all need to be considered.

The single-player Career mode has been rebuilt from the ground up: calendar management, R&D to improve performance, staff recruitment and management (mechanics, engineers, medical and weather teams, finance manager, etc.). 

For multiplayer, weekly challenges and WRC eSports return, but the challenge and competition is now even stiffer.

With 50 teams, 14 rallies and over 100 special stages in the 2019 season, WRC 8 has the deepest content ever included in an off-road racing game.

Released Nov 19, 2019

DLC details

The Alpine A110 is none other than the first car to win the World Rally Championship in the modern era. Many top drivers were successful in the 1970s at the wheel of this Berlinette. Agile and responsive, the Alpine A110 has incredible traction and is particularly adept at negotiating bends.

Lancia Delta HF Integrale Evoluzione (1992)

The Lancia Delta is the ultimate rally car! With 11 manufacturers titles and 4 drivers titles between 1974 and 1992, no other car has surpassed it in the history of the WRC. It has even won 46 of the 65 rallies it has taken part in. With its ultra-high performance, it remains a challenging car to control.

Ford Escort MkII 1800 (1979)

Released Nov 19, 2019

DLC details

Ford is still active in the WRC as an official manufacturer, but it had already made history with its Ford Escort RS1800.

Two cars that left their mark on an era in a booster pack. The Lancia 037 was a legendary Group B car in the 1980s. It was the last rear-wheel drive to win the World Rally Championship. With a 4-cylinder 205hp engine, it offers a unique driving experience and is difficult to tame. As for the Porsche 911 GT3 RS RGT, it is a monster of power and technology. Thanks to its flat-six 500hp engine and unmistakable sound, there are no other cars quite like it.
