French developer Kylotonn is working on the next installment of their officially licensed off-road racer series. Titled WRC 9, it brings the 2020 World Rally Championship to the players’ screens. The game includes three new rallies (Kenya, Japan, and New Zealand), over 15 classic cars, and 100 special stages.
There are two new game modes in WRC 9. The first is a Clubs system that allows the players to create custom championships and compete online against their friends. The second is a Co-Driver mode for playing in a co-op. Besides these new modes, the developer also promises improved physics and reworked engine sounds.
