WRC 3: FIA World Rally Championship “Glory Mode” Demo

By Jim Rossignol on October 12th, 2012.


The new WRC, pronounced “whirrrceee”, has a demo out. Look you can download it here! Apparently it will “allow you to try out the Road to Glory Mode.” I would say that “Road to Glory Mode” sounds euphemistic, but I think it’s a bit early in the day for that sort of joke. Anyway, I had a bit of fun with WRC’s preview, and as the game is on the verge of release – coming out today, I believe – we’ll no doubt scrutinize the final thing in the next few days. In the meantime: why not judge for yourself?

Special Stages: WRC 3 Adds Boss Battles

Wheelie Shiny: WRC 3 Diary Shows Rally Art

By Jim Rossignol on August 3rd, 2012.

A bit better than my mini.
A developer diary for forthcoming offroad racing game WRC 3 feature Italian devs Milestone explaining why they thing this is the best rally game ever made. A good part of the reason for that belief rests with their new engine, which allows them to play with fancy lighting and particle effects, as well as employing something called “satellite modelling”, which appears to be constructing their 3D tracks based on overhead satellite shots? Something like that.

Anyway, it appears faithful to current rallying realities, so go take a look.

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?
