World Rally Championship is back on video game – and it looks great!

Rallying and video-gaming fans can rejoice in the knowledge that the all-new WRC FIA World Rally Championship game is out soon for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC - and it's the best one yet!
WRC FIA World Rally Championship is the only video game title that brings the real cars, the real thrill-against-time and the real excitement of drifts and handbrake turns to PC and home consoles – and it's out to buy soon!

Developed by Milestone Studios and published by Black Bean Games, WRC FIA World Rally Championship includes an innovative 'Road to the WRC' career mode and Rally Academy that allows gamers to climb the same ladder as a real driver, as you begin by building up your own team and participating in regional championships before progressing step-by-step on to more prestigious categories and ultimately breaking into the big-time in the WRC.

With 13 rallies to choose from – Sweden, Mexico, Jordan, Turkey, New Zealand, Portugal, Bulgaria, Finland, Germany, Japan, France, Spain and Great Britain, mirroring the official 2010 WRC calendar – players can challenge themselves on the new 'Time Attack' feature by choosing a car with which to set a new record stage time, with the opportunity to upload the ghost of your previous best performance and download those of the world record-holders.

Covering all four of the official categories WRC, SWRC, PWRC and JWRC, there are no fewer than a staggering 18 different cars to choose from – the Citroën C4 WRC, Ford Focus '09 WRC, Ford Focus '08 WRC, Subaru WRC '07, FIAT Punto Abarth S2000, Ford Fiesta S2000, Skoda Fabia S2000, Peugeot 207 S2000, Subaru Impreza N4, Mitsubishi Lancer X, Mitsubishi Lancer IX, Suzuki Swift S1600, Citroën C2 S1600, Renault Clio R3, Honda Civic R3, Ford Fiesta R2, Citroën C2 R2 and Suzuki Swift R2.

Better yet, six of the most glorious, legendary models of the '80s – the Audi Quattro S2, Peugeot 205 T16, Lancia Delta S4, Ford RS2000, Citroën BX4 TC and Renault R5 – are also available to download, whilst tricky weather conditions from the snowy tracks in Sweden to the dusty deserts of Jordan through the technical asphalt trails in Spain will truly test your car control capabilities to the max over a special stage, a full rally weekend or even an entire championship.

What's more, the online ranking system enables gamers to compete against others worldwide, participating in multi-player contests on completely customisable single stages, single rallies or championships, as you gain experience with each performance and raise your online ranking to eventually become number one!

Additional features include an exclusive set of liveries and sponsors for each car, the ability to work on car set-up and the opportunity to exploit your co-driver audio notes to master the toughest sections of each event and bring the game to the utmost extreme realism!
