The next game in the World Rally Championship franchise, WRC 10, is on its way!
Revealed recently, the game will arrive on the new PlayStation 5, but what can PS5 owners expect from WRC 10?
WRC 10 on PS5
The new game has an official release date of 2 September on the PS5, which is the same date as every other platform except for Nintendo Switch.
While pre-orders are not yet available, we don't expect Nacon to charge more for the PS5 version of WRC 10 than the are the PS4 version.
After all, WRC 9 was given a free upgrade for the new console.
While WRC games usually require a serious sim rig to get the full experience, thanks to the DualSense controller it is much easier to play WRC games on a pad for PS5 players than anyone else.
Thanks to the adaptive triggers you can start to feel the brakes locking up and the car losing grip before you see it on the screen. This lets you adjust input far more precisely than ever before.
The haptic feedback also lets you feel the bumps and bounces in the road, directing you to adjust course and letting you get more confidence in your driving.
The PS5 controller is a huge boost to racing games like WRC, where previously you needed a wheel to go really fast.
