WRC 10 is a game that has exceeded expectations and continues to impress, especially given the year on year nature of the title and the limited time available for overall improvements. This is testament to the Nacon / Kylotonn development team and their R&D departments, in work, planning, overall logistics and ultimately the execution. They have responded to consumer feedback and continue to add to the product on a large scale despite the rug being pulled from under them when the franchise moves to EA in 2023. Back to WRC 2010 and and it has been somewhat of a revelation, new handling building on the intuitive style of WRC 9 while adding more weight to the car and greater feedback. All combined in producing the finest WRC game ever, this supported with free dlc expansions which have been transformative to not only add worthwhile features but also improving the overall gaming experience.
The main event of the November expansion is the new Acropolis Rally, with some stunning and highly challenging stages, besides improved Club Mode, the November update also adds the following historical events:
– Rally Argentina in 1994 with Didier Auriol and Bernard Occelli in their Toyota Celica Turbo 4WD,
– Rally Argentina in 2004 with Carlos Sainz and Marc Martí in their Citroen Xsara WRC,
– Rally Germany in 2002 with Sébastien Loeb and Daniel Elena in their Citroën Xsara WRC,
– the Safari Rally in Kenya in 2000 with Richard Burns and Robert Reid in their Subaru Impreza S5 WRC ’99,
– Rally Mexico in 2016 with Jari-Matti Latvala and Miikka Anttila in their Volkswagen Polo R WRC.
