The full list of stage variations is not yet available, but we can confirm that EA SPORTS WRC will launch with 17 locations, with the Central Europe Rally being an 18th venue and free post-release downloadable content.
The 2023 WRC season only has 13 events and thus 13 locations. So, at launch, EA SPORTS WRC will have 12 of those (the aforementioned Central Europe Rally is the 13th) plus five bonus locations.
They seemingly have the look and feel of prior WRC rounds, but aren’t named as such and are therefore technically fictional additions.
We expect, although it’s not clear yet, that these bonus areas can be used for online multiplayer and the Moments mode. It remains to be seen if they will be used in the career.
Stage length this time can be up to 30km in length. There will be over 600km of unique roads and more than 200 stages.
