The latest official game of the FIA World Rally Championship, WRC 10, has showcased one of its big new features – the livery editor.
Something that has been absent in recent years, this will primarily be of use within the career, where you can now create your own team. In WRC 9, for example, you would always sign for an existing outfit and have no control over the car’s visuals.
Hopefully, you will be able to take your liveries online too, which will help identifying drivers within esports competitions – such as 2020 eSports WRC champion Sami-Joe, who uses official team liveries up to this point.
Upon this first glance, it seems as if you can create your own schemes from a blank canvas, adding shapes, stickers, lettering and logos – as opposed to the system in F1 2021 where there are only pre-set patterns. This looks to provide a high degree of creative freedom with up to 500 stickers per design allowed. Items to use in the creation of designs will unlock as you play the game.
The livery creation will be available across the WRC, WRC 2, WRC 3, Junior WRC and historical cars included in the game. The Subaru Impreza WRC and Audi Quattro are exemptions. You will not be able to upload liveries online, or import stickers, however.
We’ll be trying this feature when the game releases on 2nd September 2021 for PS4, PS5, PC, Xbox One and Xbox Series.
