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 feedback force "maximum" is too much and tends to heat too much the Logitech wheels (after 2 h there was burn smell)

Apparently the beta is locked at 30 fps on PC. I really hope the full PC release is unlocked because 30 fps may be a deal breaker for me. Admittedly though some games are more playable than others at 30 fps, unfortunately didn't get into the beta so I don't know what it plays like.

Every car in AC is so unique and feels so natural that it's genuinely exciting when we see something new. I look forward to testing this and the eagle eyed will have spotted it racing round an as yet unreleased Spa.

Is 3 cars enough for a pack? Is £1 per car worth it? Hmm it feels like 5-6 would have made for a better selection, I hope to test these out next week.

Just a simply good bye fix then. Now the focus on GT7, lets hope we see that in late 2015, though 2016 still looks more likely.

Yes I'm sure we'll see wet weather tyres implemented on a later build, either way it looks stunning so far and I look forward to testing wet conditions more when they improve the frame rate for triple screens.
