An all-new version of the FIA World Rally Championship‘s official video game will be launched at the end of October. Called WRC 4, it is the latest chapter in the series that has sold more than 7 million copies since it first went on sale in 2002.

The new game features all the rallies from the 2013 WRC calendar, complete with all leading teams and drivers. Players will have the chance to experience improved graphics, new weather effects and a revamped Career Mode.


The game will be revealed to the trade and public for the first time at the Gamescom exhibition in Germany from 21 August, before an official launch on 30 October at Paris Games Week.

Available for Xbox 360, Windows PC, PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita, WRC 4 is the first in the series to be released by Bigben Interactive, the company that recently acquired the WRC video game publishing and distribution rights.

The game itself is being developed by Milestone, specialists in racing games and the creators of the last three versions.
