KT Racing has announced a raft of improvements for its recently released rally game WRC Generations today (2nd December 2022).
The French developer has released updates for Xbox, PlayStation and PC, bringing Sony and Microsoft console iterations up to v220.127.116.11 and the PC version to v18.104.22.168.
Headlining the patch is a fix for throttle issues experienced by many of WRC Generations’ players. Often cars remained stationary until the gas pedal was applied to near maximum levels – an issue with roots in the game’s predecessor WRC 10.
Car set-up options have also been optimised, with incorrect set-up restrictions amended. Wet tyres now also enjoy a bigger advantage over dries in inclement conditions, adding a more realistic element of strategy to proceedings. Tool tips have also been added to help provide car set-up guidance, a handy feature for the inexperienced sim racer.
PC users will also be glad to know they will receive fixes for Fanatec GT DD Pro wheel FFB issues, with improved implementation of Nvidia’s DLSS graphics-enhancing technology. PlayStation users also receive minor updates to the game’s sounds and pace note management systems.
WRC Generation’s new update is out now for all versions of WRC Generations barring the newly released Nintendo Switch edition.
