We’ve been lucky enough to get a hands-on with a preview version of V-Rally 4, the first title in the V-Rally series for 15 years.
We dive into the “Extreme-Khana” discipline and head to the challenging Detroit course. Driving the Mitsubishi Evolution X using the Thrustmaster T300, we utilise handbrake turns, power slides, steering on the throttle, and shifting the weight around to tackle the very demanding course. Take a look at the action below.
Learning the course was no easy task: it’s very much trial and error. You’ll need to have several runs to learn the characteristics of the car, also when to brake, when to use the handbrake, and you’ll need to learn which gear is best to take each section.
V-Rally 4 has a total of five disciplines, besides Extreme-Khana, the off-road racer will see you taking on Buggy, Hillclimb, Rally, and V-Rallycross (I can almost hear the groans).
V-Rally 4 will be sliding onto the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC in September, with a Switch version to follow.
