Petrol-heads, motorsport enthusiasts and WRC fans alike will experience a unique game that delivers a realistic and accessible driving model, as WRC FIA World Rally Championship features 78 different rally stages and over 550km of varied road conditions from the 13 countries which host a round of the WRC.

The main goal of the game is to bring the action of the World Rally Championship to the living rooms of both rallying and gaming fans, while the new official WRC game will provide the sport with major promotional and commercial opportunities, which will continue to grow the reach and appeal of the WRC on a global scale.

Petrol-heads, motorsport enthusiasts and WRC fans alike will experience a unique game that delivers a realistic and accessible driving model. The game features 78 different rally stages and over 550km of varied road conditions from the 13 countries which host a round of the WRC. Also available for the first time is the new “Road to the WRC” career mode presenting the opportunity to compete for 50 different trophies. In addition many online multiplayer game modes combine to make the WRC game an epic motorsport adventure and the ultimate rally gaming experience.

Black Bean Games announces a synchronization agreement with Warner Music UK and Australian electronica/drum & bass band Pendulum to use the band's song ‘Witchcraft’, the second and latest top 40 single from ‘Immersion’ in WRC FIA World Rally Championship. The track is also the official soundtrack to the game’s trailer.

The group’s next single ‘The Island’ is available from September 20th on Earstorm / Warner Bros. Records, and they recently announced a major UK arena tour.

“Pendulum’s track is a real added value for the game, delivering even more rhythm and excitement to make WRC the unique rallying experience all petrol-head gamers won’t miss!” said Fabrizio Vagliasindi, Strategic Marketing Coordinator at Black Bean Games.

“Pendulum’s pacey, visceral music is the perfect fit with this racing game, enhancing its exhilarating mood. This game is a great way for the band to reach existing fans and make new ones at time when, three months after release, the album is still in the top thirty and their brilliant new single is on the way” said Ali Johnson, Senior Director, Synch Licensing at Warner Music UK.
