WRC 6 for PC, PS4 and XONE is another inslatment in the series that began in 2010, based on the World Rally Championship license, and also the official game of the rallying series. It was once again developed by French studio Kylotonn Games, known for such racing games as Truck Racer or Motorcycle Club, as well as the FPS Bet on Solder and the hunting game Hunter's Trophy.
In WRC 6 you can participate in another series of exciting races, based on the current World Rally Championships season. The game features all fourteen rounds of the 2016 season, including the China Rally, returning to the schedule after several years of break. Thanks to the official FIA licensing, the game also includes all the drivers, pilots, and teams participating in the WRC, as well as the ones participating in the WRC-2 and Junior WRC.
In terms of mechanics, WRC 6 introduces several key innovations, most of which was based on the feedback on the previous instalment from the players themselves.The information was dutifully gathered by the Kylotonn Games Team, for whom WRC 5 was the first classic racing game they have ever made. Compared to the rather short OS races in the previous instalment, taking place on wide tracks, now the sections are longer, while the roads are narrower and more bumpy. The driving and damage system have been improved in order to meet more expectations of the WRC fans.
As per tradition, the sixth instalment in the WRC series features a wide range of game modes, from a user-friendyl tutorial, through the expansive career mode, to special stage races. There's also a multiplayer mode, either in the online mode or the hot seat mode. The eSports WRC mode, a novel multiplayer system introduced in WRC 5, had been upgraded. In this mode, players from all over the world strive to achieve the best time possible on individual special stages, with every player being allowed one try per day. The weekend session winners are invited to participate in the semifinals, and then finals, in which one of them becomes the eSports World Rally Champion.
Compared to its predecessor, WRC 6 for PC, PS4 and XONE features visibly improved visual and audio layer. Since it was the first game in the series created strictly for PC and eight generation consoles, the Kylotonn Games developers could focus on upgrading the graphics (better textures, day cycle or advanced weather effects) and the audio (car engine and environment sounds) in order to make the gameplay appear even more realistic.
