WRC 6 Races Onto Release Today

FIA fans can rally their spirits today!


Today, Bandai Namco and Bigben Interactive released WRC 6, the latest installment of official games series of the FIA Word Rally Championship. WRC 6 lets players take on all 14 official rallies, play as (or against) the official drivers and teams in the 2016 FIA rally season for a complete racing series.

In addition to being a highly realistic rally experience, the game offers 11 new Super Special Stages that combine unique driving challenges with iconic environments from around the world. To help friends compete against each other, WRC 6 includes a split-screen multiplayer mode, diverse and challenging new stages, the eSports WRC Championship, and more ever more true to life renditions of the vehicles. If you like driving around in mud, WRC 6 certainly seems squarely aimed at you!

Even better, for those who want to compete against other dirt-track drivers, there’s a series of online official competitions for Season 2 of the Esports WRC Championship. The championship is open to all WRC 6 players to enter where they’ll compete in a series of rally races that run parallel to the official WRC calendar. The eSports WRC Championship rounds end in November 2017, followed by a final competition.

Eric Hartness, Vice President of Marketing at BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment America Inc thinks WRC 6 is off to a real rolling start, saying:

“Since its start in 1973, the FIA World Rally Championship has become the authoritative name in gritty and challenging rally races. We can’t wait to see gamers climb in the driver’s seat and experience the high octane driving experience the talented teams at Kylotonn and Bigben have created to bring the rallying action to gamers… With its fast cars, fierce eSports competition, and rich roster of courses, WRC 6 lives up to that world famous racing series and truly puts players in the driver’s seat.”

Benoît Clerc, Head of Software at Bigben Interactive chimed in with his own equally positive view:

“We’re excited to work with BANDAI NAMCO to bring the excitement of the newest season of the FIA World Rally Championship to the Americas. Perhaps the best part for us will be seeing racers from around the globe squaring off to determine who in the best racer in the world… We work hard to make games that everyone can enjoy, and with WRC 6, beginners and veteran racers alike will have an opportunity to experience the exhilaration of rally racing at the highest level. There’s something here for everyone!”

WRC 6 is now out for the Playstation 4, Xbox One and PC via Steam.

Jonathan is HeyPoorPlayer's token British person, so expect him to thoroughly exploit this by quoting Monty Python and saying things like "Pip, pip, toodly-whotsit!" for the delight of American readers. He likes artsy-fartsy games, RPGs and RPG-Hybrids (which means pretty much everything at this point). He used to write for He's also just realised how much fun it is to refer to himself in the third person like he's The Rock or something.
