PQube and Milestone announce WRC 4, the official video game of the World Rally Championship, to be released in the UK on PS Vita and PS3 25th October 2013.

Following the path taken with the previous chapter of the series, WRC 4  will feature a new amazing mix of elements with high graphical detail and real in-game sound. All these improvements are possible thanks to the community’s feedback. The main characteristics that will be included into this new game are: loyalty to the license, an exciting game experience, accessibility for first-time players and a dynamic and competitive online game mode.

Among new features of this 2013 edition, players will have the chance to experience new lighting conditions, new weather effects  depending on the stage, and a brand new Career Mode  to put the player into real driver’s shoes . Realism and immersion  are two of the most important pillars of the development, with impressive 3D environments and an HDR system that will grant the best in-game performance.

“We’re really happy to be part of this exciting WRC 4 announcement and to announce so many new features in the 2013 version of the game”,  affirms Milestone’s Luisa Bixio.

“This brand new chapter, different from the previous reboot of the series, will include many of the improvements requested by the community. A lot of the features that we’ve seen on the official Facebook page or received by mail have been incorporated. We’re convinced that WRC 4 represents a step forward for the series and will be appreciated by players.”, concludes Bixio.

Dave Pain, Managing Director of PQube added:- “Milestone are creating fantastic games and we are delighted to continue our partnership with them to bring their games to the UK market.  WRC3 surpassed all expectations in the UK and WRC has once again become an established franchise here.  With a massive marketing campaign including TV support, and the significant new additions in WRC4 this will be a must stock item for UK retail.“
