With just over a month until release, Milestone are continuing to pump out new material for WRC3. 

This latest batch of screenshots showcase WRC3's rendition of the contrasting dusty trails and tight passageways of the Rally Guanajuato Mexico and the sweeping snowy roads of the Rally Sweden.

As we keep iterating, visually WRC3 is a significant step up from its predecessor thanks to its new in-house Spikengine, as evidenced by the vastly improved track and car model detail shown in the screenshots.

The overhead shots look particularly fabulous when you consider Milestone's previous budget restrictions that hampered their last WRC efforts – hopefully we'll be able to admire those stunning views when reliving the action in the replays. The detailed architecture surrounding the buildings in the Mexico track is also worth a mention.

Speaking of trackside detail, we can see that cheering crowds have now been added, which were noticeably absent in the last build of the game. It may sound like a small detail, but it all adds to the immersion that characterises the sport. 

Our only criticism is that some of the cars still look like they need a bit of spit and polish applied and some of the modelling proportions don't look quite right.  

Nevertheless, this latest build of WRC3 is still looking rather sumpteous, which we can vouch for from our hands-on. Expect more WRC3 gameplay videos from VVV very soon.
