As WRC 4 gears up for its release in under two weeks time, Milestone have confirmed the car list and available liveries that will feature in its latest rally sim.
All the official cars from the 2013 season are present and correct, making a total of 15 different car models, 65 Drivers and Co-Drivers and 55 Teams.
The full car list can be downloaded here.
What's troubling, however, is that the number of available cars is significantly lower than WRC 3 according to the list. While all the cars in this year's season are included, there's no mention of the various Group B and classic rally cars that could be driven in WRC 2 and WRC 3, such as the Renault 5 Maxi Turbo, Lancia Delta and Toyota Celica Turbo.
Their unfortunate omission could perhaps be due to the increased detail found in WRC 4's impressive car models, but we will reach out to Milestone to find out more.
We'll have to wait and see how they respond, but hopefully this can be rectified with some free DLC - just as Milestone did for the missing tracks in WRC 3 on Vita.
I'll look forward to it and for once I'm not bothered wether its DLC or not because in terms of racing sims, Assetto Corsa is definitely more friendly on your pocket - free multiplayer etc. I hope that doesn't change when it leaves early access.
Its nice to see that they're not using lens flare, it really annoys me when its used in cockpit view because cockpit view is often for a more realistic driving experience yet it can be ruined by lens flare which is an effect only present on lenses (unsurprisingly). *ehem* Next Car Game *ehem*.
Yes this certainly has huge potential and mixing bikes with cars could be a good thing in terms of investment. Bike games have often been a mixed bag in terms of reception, so perhaps we'll see some bikes in GT7 and then if that works out, a full blown Tourist Trophy 2 further down the line.
I'm not going to get my hopes up because there have been too many rumors for far to long. But after GT6 the only thing that would make me buy another GT title would be the addition of bikes (and a good selection of those at that).
In regards to Tourist Trophy, that game still holds up today. Not perfect (bikes a tad to floatly) but over all it gave me the closest sense of how it feels to...
once upon time I use to buy multiple copies of Milestone titles (PS3, PC, Euro and US versions) but not anymore. Why try to support a company that doesn't care about it's customers. Can't say that MotoGP 14 was a disappointment because it was about as good as expected and that's not saying much. Same issues as always......A LACK OF EFFORT. and as such after 4 laps I just put the game away....
