WRC, the acronym for the World Rally Championship, has an official game, which is available on multiple platforms and is getting a new addition this year.
Currently, the game is at its fifth title, WRC5, which is licensed by the Federation International de l’Automobile (FIA), but Kylotonn Games, its developers, have already prepared the sixth title.

We are writing about WRC 6, which will also include drivers and cars from the “feeder series” of the World Rally Championship, WRC 2 and Junior WRC.

For those of you unfamiliar with the term “feeder series,” WRC 2 and Junior WRC are two supporting championships that are used by the major teams to spot talented drivers to bring to “the big league.” Their cars are extremely competitive, but still a league away from the what the queen class of the World Rally Championship is running.

WRC2 used to be known as the Super 2000 World Rally Championship (S-WRC), while Junior WRC is the place where talents like Sebastien Loeb, Sebastien Ogier, Jari-Matti Latvala, Thierry Neuville, and Dani Sordo have been discovered. Evidently, this championship and all of its branches are exciting to watch. However, there is also the possibility of being a virtual racer.

Red Bull has published a set of in-game images from the latest game in the WRC franchise. According to the energy drink maker that is also a significant sponsor for multiple sporting branches, WRC 6 will bring a whole new level of excitement, and will be more than just an update that will bring players to the cars and stages of the 2016 season.

The developers of the game have improved the graphics of WRC, added new special stages, and all the 14 rounds of this year’s calendar, including China. The eSports WRC challenge will continue with the latest version of the game, just like the WRC 5 had.

WRC 6 is scheduled for release this October, and it will be available on PC, Xbox One, and PS4. You can make a pre-order on the leading vendors like Amazon and its equivalents. If WRC is not your thing, there’s also F1 2016. PlayStation users will also get Gran Turismo 6 this year.
