One of the biggest issues with WRC Generations was wheel compatibility for Xbox players. Now that these issues are resolved for most players, a new WRC Generations update has rolled out for PC, PlayStation, and Xbox addressing a slew of issues reported by the community.
WRC Generations December update
Since launch, players have been reporting an issue with the throttle only being effective when nearly fully pressed. Thankfully, the December update fixes this issue, which should improve the driving experience for everyone.
In terms of physics improvements, the December update also fixes an issue where it was possible to accelerate even with the clutch engaged and makes rain tyres more effective on wet roads.
There’s also a PC-only fix that addresses a force feedback issue when disconnecting and reconnecting the Fanatec GT DD Pro.
For PlayStation players, the December update also brings fixes for the league hub, penalties, and texture rendering issues, as well as other optimisations for the PS5 and PS4 versions of the game.
Check out the WRC Generations December update patch notes below for a full list of fixes and improvements contained in the update.
