First WRC 2 Screenshots

Black Bean has revealed the first Screens of WRC 2. The title developed by MileStone will arrive on the Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and PC in October.
Update: 3 Screens added.

Varese, 17 June 2011 – Leading publisher Black Bean Games confirmed today that WRC 2, the official videogame of the 2011 FIA World Rally Championship, is set for release in October 2011. The sequel to the popular WRC title is currently being developed by Milestone and will be published exclusively by Black Bean Games for PlayStation®3, Xbox360™ and PC.

The 2011 edition of the official WRC videogame will feature all rallies of the 2011 World Rally Championship calendar with all the leading WRC team and drivers. WRC 2 – the Official Game will feature significantly more content than its predecessor with 90 stages, 15 different locations, 25 different terrain/ weather conditions and 9 car categories. Cars will range from the 1960s to the WRC models of the current Championship and the game contains new Game Modes, a 16-player online mode, a completely revamped Career Mode and many other improvements from last year in terms of contents, gameplay features and visual effects.

Luisa Bixio, Leader Spa Managing Director, adds: “There are millions of WRC followers and racing games enthusiasts all around the world and our ambition is to make them happy with our official products. Most of them simply can’t wait to know more about the next WRC episode. Following the International press and consumer feedback we collected after the 2010 edition release, everyone at Black Bean Games and Milestone, together with the North One Sport team, is doing the best to achieve the most important objective of this year: meeting the gamers expectations. We really want to deliver a state-of-the-art off-road motorsport experience which combines a great graphics impact, the best driving model in this genre and all the WRC elements from the current season such as all classes, drivers, all rallies as well as much more to enjoy such as the brand new Super Special Stages!”.

Simon Long, North One Sport CEO, says: “The 2010 WRC game put our sport back on the gaming map – and with WRC 2 we look to take this further. More realism, more detail and more variety is what we have seen in the studio so far this year. The new game is rich in WRC history, but also gives a glimpse of the future. With MINI taking on the established Citroën and Ford teams and the impending return of Volkswagen, the WRC is heading for a golden era and we want to take our WRC gamers on that journey too!”.

At least it'll be cheap soon.

The only good thing about WRC is the license. The rest of the game, graphics, physics, design, is just awful.

Like my friend would say: kill it with fire xD

i actually prefered this to diRT. but then it's the only genuine, real rally game out there. not like i have much of a choice. DiRT is just an arcady, americanised mess of a game compared to this. and this isnt exactly top tier stuff either.

Graphics are poor.

Disgraceful waste of a massive license like WRC. A licence like that deserves the best to be thrown at it. The first shocking attempt was beyond a joke. Honestly, there were games on the PS2 that could give it a run for it's money as far as graphics went.

When you're releasing a game similar to Dirt 3 and Dirt 3 is already out... it's STUPID to release screen shots like these. They should have known that putting "work in progress" isn't going to cut them much slack. If your game is supposedly going to look "Much Better!" at a later date- then don't show us your rough sketches and expect a good response. Now my mouth is just soiled with these very poor looking shots and I'm likely to ignore the future articles about this game BECAUSE I'm going to remember THESE shots!

At least it is just a rally game. I enjoyed the last one, and I will probably play this one too. But I will not get this on release day, I will wait for a price drop, which should happen quickly.

I'm sorry for those thinking Dirt is a real rally game. It is NOT. :-) CMR or RBR were real rally games, not this Americanized piece of work.

I love reading comments of "graphics suck so the game will suck" then other games when graphics do truly suck (not that these are great but they could certainly do worst) they're all like "but it doesn't matter about graphics! It's the gameplay that counts!" Yeah gamers are largely hypocrites when it comes to games.

I'm looking forward to this. WRC 2010 was a quite good first effort and I'm sure this will be even better. I've heard they've improved the graphics pretty much, so looking forward to gameplay footage
