WRC Generations is sliding onto consoles and PC later this year. Kylotonn’s last game in the WRC series before Codemasters takes over the reins, WRC Generations is going out with a bang. With new hybrid Rally1 WRC cars, 37 historic rally cars, an expanded career mode, and improved driving physics, WRC Generations promises to be the most complete WRC game yet.
But which WRC Generations Editions are available? And will there be a Deluxe Edition with extra content?
WRC Generations Editions
WRC Generations was announced for PC, PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. It will likely be the last WRC game released on last-generation consoles.
So far, only the standard edition of WRC Generations has been announced.
WRC Generations Deluxe Edition
A Deluxe Edition of WRC Generations has yet to be announced. Considering that WRC 9 and WRC 10 received digital deluxe editions, there’s a good chance we’ll get a WRC Generations Deluxe Edition with extra content.
WRC Deluxe Editions are typically bundled with extra cars and special stages. For example, the WRC 10 Deluxe Edition included the following bonus content
- The Mitsubishi Lancer Evo V and 1 additional historic event
- The Arena Panzerplatte super special stage (SSS)
- The Career Starter Pack
- Access to WRC+ for 3 months
If there is a WRC Generations Deluxe Edition, expect it to command a higher price than the Standard Edition. For reference, the WRC 10 Deluxe Edition has an RRP of £64.99 on PlayStation and Xbox and £49.99 on Steam.
The standard version of WRC Generations could also include extra cars as a preorder bonus. Preordering WRC 10 gave access to Colin McRae’s Subaru Impreza WRC 1997. WRC Generations features 37 historical cars, so some of these could be reserved as preorder or Deluxe Edition bonuses.
Ahead of October's release, Kylotonn Games has released two gameplay videos showcasing the newly updated Rally Sweden and Rally Japan with Toyota Gazoo Racing's Takamoto Katsuta and Hyundai's Oliver Solberg behind the wheel.
We also get a look at the new powerful Rally1 hybrid cars in action as the professional rally drivers adjust to the new driving physics.
WRC Generations skids onto PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, and Xbox One on 13 October. PC and Nintendo Switch versions will follow later, with a release date to be confirmed.
WRC’s Nintendo Switch ports are typically released a few months later, so we expect the Switch version of WRC Generations to arrive in February of March 2023. It’s unusual for the PC version to be delayed, but we’re hoping it will arrive later this year.
