We’ve seen a few free racing games included in Sony and Microsoft’s subscription services of late and the month of May is no exception.
Xbox One owners with an Xbox Gold or Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription can grab V-Rally 4 for free on May 1 and have up until May 31 to secure their copy. Developed by Kylotonn, V-Rally 4 saw its release in 2018 some 16 years after the launch of the third V-Rally title which graced the PlayStation 2 and original Xbox as well as a few other platforms.
V-Rally 4 features the five disciplines of Rally, V-Rallycross, Hillclimb, Extreme-Khana, and Buggy, with the goal of becoming the Grand Champion in each. Along your way to success, you’ll be expected to recruit a racing crew who provide a number of perks and bonuses as well as satisfying sponsor objectives.
We reviewed V-Rally 4 and found the title to feature (mostly) fun vehicle handling, challenging rally stages and a decent variety of off-road disciplines. However, we grew frustrated with the load loading times and the messy career mode. We also observed repeated track sections and found the visuals to be somewhat dated. Regardless, we highly recommend picking up a free copy and giving those rally stages a go.
