WRC3 raises the bar for rally games, capitalizing on the official WRC license it features more than 50 official teams from WRC, Class 2 and 3, more than 35 unique car models (including the brand new Volkswagen Polo R WRC test car, Renault Twingo R2 and the Proton Satria Neo S2000) plus all of the tracks from the 2012 championships, complete with all leading WRC teams and drivers, as well as a completely new career mode.
WRC 3 also features a brand new graphics engine, called Spikengine, allowing Milestone to accurately model lighting, particle effects and other real-world characteristics to create an in-game virtual reality, offering complete immersion in the WRC universe. The cars themselves showcase new modelling techniques - they have never looked as life-like, or handled as realistically, as in WRC 3. Milestone has streamlined every aspect of the game to allow new players instant gameplay satisfaction, while still allowing experienced rally gamers to explore the game’s full range of features and drive a WRC car from the comfort of their own home.
Luisa Bixio, Marketing and Sales Director affirmed, "We are really excited to be able to announce the WRC 3 demo. In recent months, we've been watching the Facebook fan page and forums across which there has been unprecedented demand for a demo."
Sébastien Loeb, RallyRACC-Rally de España, WRC Experience and Road to Glory will be amongst the breadth of new game play featured. Once downloaded, the player will have the chance to race as Loeb through a single stage of the beautiful yet challenging RallyRACC-Rally de España, or try the new career mode, Road to Glory. Within Road to Glory there is the opportunity to take on a special event, and on passing it, players will be able to access the first challenge "Crash & Run Contest".
The WRC 3: FIA World Rally Championship demo will be available on the 21st September on Xbox LIVE and the 22nd on PlayStation Network.
WRC 3 has three 3 distinct game modes:
- The Road to Glory is an exciting blend of racing and management with RPG elements. Begin your career and play through as a new driver on the professional circuit – just as you would in real life. Customise your cars, liveries, team and also un-lock new items. It also features super special stages, rallies, challenges (Drift contest, Top Rally Contest, Crash&Run etc), "boss" characters, tournaments and 1vs1 head to head elimination battles.
- WRC Experience puts you in the driving seat of a professional rally driver during the 2012 World Rally Championships season. Choose from over 50 drivers (including top British Racer Matthew Wilson and current World Champion and rally phenom, Sebastian Loeb) and race all of the official tracks battling for pole position and the maximum number of points for each stage.
- WRC Online is an exciting multiplayer game mode that allows players to race Single Stage, Single SSS, Single Rally or a whole Championship.
