Ypres Rally Belgium, revised co-driver mode and new cars now in WRC 10
A massive new update for WRC 10 has just landed and it includes a deluge of new, free, content.
First up, the Ypres Rally Belgium is now within the game. Seven new asphalt routes are available and join the Croatian, Spanish and Estonian locations as all-new stages for the game this year. The Belgian event was originally going to make its WRC debut last season and a last-minute substitute during a Covid-19 troubled season but eventually took place this year in September.
These new additions are playable within single-player, online and career modes.
Alongside the new stages, the Anniversary mode has been expanded with three new challenges. These are Sébastien Ogier & Julien Ingrassia winning the Rally de Portugal in 2017, Walter Röhrl & Christian Geistdörfer winning the same event in 1980 using a Fiat 131 Abarth and Ari Vatanen & David Richards competing in the 1981 Rally Finland with the famed Ford Escort MkII 1800.
All three cars are also available to play in game modes outside of the Anniversary section.
Last year’s WRC 9 introduced an innovative online co-driver mode, where two players could team up. One would read the pacenotes, the other drive. Now, this feature has been updated thanks to the inclusion of a fresh leaderboard system, ranking all co-drivers depending on their score, plus a pacenote chart and points for hitting buttons at the right time.
Last but not least, 250 new stickers have been added to the Livery Editor so you can be more creative than ever.
This update follows on from a significant update in September that fixed some of our main concerns, and itself also remedies some smaller errors which we have detailed below.
Now all that remains is to download the new update on PC, PlayStation or Xbox and set a competitive Ypres stage time. Easier said than done!
