Nacon and KT Racing have formally announced WRC 10 for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and PC. The game has a release date of Sept. 2, 2021 on all consoles except Switch, where it will release at a later date. Below you can check out the announcement trailer, which includes sleek graphics that you definitely will never see on Switch. Seriously, we’re used to big downgrades by now, so watching the trailer as a Switch owner will be a form of mild punishment.
As part of the 50th anniversary of the championship, WRC 10 will include a History Mode with 19 historical events with unique driving conditions to race through, and Career Mode has been upgraded and now features a livery editor to create your own team and select your colors for cars. WRC 10 will further offer the following features:
- The 4 new 2021 rallies: Estonia, Croatia, Belgium, and Spain
- 6 historic rallies including Acropolis, San Remo, Germany, and Argentina
- 120 special stages
- 52 official teams from the 2021 season (WRC, WRC2, WRC3, Junior WRC)
- 20 legendary cars from Alpine, Audi, Lancia, Subaru, Ford, Mitsubishi, Toyota, and more…
WRC 10 sounds solid if you’re a Switch racing fan, but it bears repeating that Nacon is a pretty sketchy company with a bizarre piracy scandal on its hands.
