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?
Fifty teams (count ’em!) from the real-life World Rally Championship appear in the game. There are thirty five unique car models, a list which includes a Volkswagen Polo R WRC test car, the cute Renault Twingo R2, and the futuristic-sounding Proton Satria Neo S2000. Cars! They’re not all red, you know.
