WRC3 finally receives patch update

Martin Bigg On April 29, 2013

The community has been crying out for it since WRC3 was released some six months ago, Milestone has finally answered your prayers and released a long-awaited patch that addresses many issues, bringing the game up to version 1.01. The PS3 patch was released earlier this month, but now the PC and Xbox 360 versions have been brought up to date as of today. 

You have to wonder why it took Milestone half a year to release such an incremental update, but better late than never, right? Then again, it may come as a disappointment that, while it does fix a host of bugs and refines the force feedback on Logitech wheels, the belated patch doesn't add any significant updates to the core game. Sadly, it doesn't unlock every car for the WRC Experience and online multiplayer either, despite the frequently requests from fans.    

Here's the official changelog of bug fixes for each version:

The screenshots look like photos, never underestimate the power of realistic looking trees. Assetto Corsa can we have these now please? 2D trees are so last year. Seriously though, this looks (graphically) a lot better than WRC 5 and given Milestone's background in racing games the physics are more likely to be decent. Haven't really see what Kylotonn can do though so I'm keeping an open...

I still play SBK2000 and SBK2001 regularly. Physics is pretty good but imo not quite as realistic as gp500. There are two camps on that argument dating all the way back to 2001! wink I agree SBK2001 is pretty good but the more you grow accustomed to the physics of motogp14 on the limit with no riding aids whatsoever and zero or low tcs plus a decent set-up the more one realises that motogp14 is...

Reason I misunderstood you Travis is that Dorna have already confirmed to Milestone that they are retaining the motogp licence for 2015. Milestone have already started work on motogp15. In fact they have been working on this for quite some time now as I understand it. Also we at xbla are provisionally lined up to commernce a beta testing programme on the game. We have been running monthly Q&A...

By the way, and I don't really endorse this concept myself (I would rather Milestone dropped it) the whole idea to combat the understeer in motogp14 is to use a manula "tuck" button. Hey presto..no understeer. Use the "tuck" as you come off the brakes and get on the power. 

Personally I would much rather Milestone dropped the manual tuck requirement though. There is no manual "tuck" in...
