WRC 3 Trailer Shows Off Shiny Spanish Tarmac

By Jim Rossignol on July 27th, 2012.

VrrOOOOOOooomm!
It has become a familiar refrain among racing-game blog posts to lament the DIRT series’ slide away from World Rally sort of action, and towards the EXTREME world of offroad sport, or whatever it’s called nowadays. But they aren’t the only people operating in the theatre of four-wheeled danger, no, because Black Bean are actually still making the World Rally series, the third iteration of which impends on our release horizon. The game is due on October 12th, and you can glimpse a bit of in action below. That looks more like, eh?

A World Rally Championship 2010 Trailer

By Jim Rossignol on August 27th, 2010.

Rally cars make good eating, if you can catch one.
So then, it seems that Black Bean’s return to the World Rally Championship series (which has been on hiatus for a few years) really is going all out to challenge the DiRT games as the main contenders in serious off-road racing. The new trailer is very energetic, and is making the game look like a lot of fun, even if it does seem to be lagging behind the Codies games in terms of visual splendor. Go take a look.

The game is out in October, and we’ll be studying its achievements when it arrives.

Black Bean Confirm WRC Date

By Jim Rossignol on July 13th, 2010.


It’s the 8th of October! There’s not been much choice out there for rally folks who wanted something other than Codemaster’s heavily coolified Dirt 2, so it’ll be interesting to see how Black Bean get on with the old fashioned tea-in-a-Thermos rallying licence of the WRC. Limited details and a brief trailer (is that poking some fun at Dirt 2?) are available over on the official site.

The full game is out later this month. The hivemind is hoping that Black Bean will soon turn their attention to tractor racing.

SBK 09 Superbike World Championship Demo

By Jim Rossignol on May 22nd, 2009.


Motorbikes have never been sensible. I mean you can’t fall off a car, can you? Anyway, they do nevertheless produce racing excitements unlike any other, and the videogames which accurately portray the about-to-die experience of going very fast on a motorbike are few and far between. SBK 09 Superbike World Championship is hoping to get close with its licenced high-speed shenanigans, and you can play the demo of this latest superbike game right now, unless you are reading RPS at work or something. Naughty you. The demo includes a single track from the full game, which will apparently appear on PC on the 29th of May. Footage after the click.
