The official game of the FIA World Rally Championship has been added to the PlayStation Now subscription service – a sign of things to come?
The PlayStation Now game subscription service has just received a brand new sim racing title, as the really rather good WRC 10 has been added as of today, 5th April 2022.
We recently compiled every racing gamer on the service that currently costs £8.99/$9.99 per month, and noted that while there were several worthy releases included, contemporary racing games were notable only by their absence.
This now changes with the addition of WRC 10, which we said at the time of its launch in August 2021 was “one of the best virtual rallying experiences there is.”
WRC 10 now sits alongside WRC 5 eSports Edition and WRC 8 FIA World Rally Championship as rally games on the service.
It should be noted, however, that this is the PS4 version of the game, which lacks the visual finesse of the PS5 edition.
There’s a rising wave of interest in the rather forlorn PlayStation Now service of late, as just last week it was announced it would be merging into PlayStation Plus to provide a revised lineup of three subscription tiers.
PlayStation Plus Extra will offer a library of up to 400 PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 titles, while PlayStation Plus Premium will add a further set of original PlayStation, PlayStation 2 and PlayStation Portable titles alongside a streaming library of PlayStation 3 games.
With the addition of WRC 10 to Now, it could hint at its inclusion in the upcoming Plus Extra and Premium tiers, something we suggested recently.
