WRC Generations gameplay videos show Japan and Sweden stages

At Gamescom 2022, Nacon revealed the first uncut WRC Generations gameplay footage featuring WRC drivers Oliver Solberg from Hyundai and Toyota Gazoo Racing’s Takamoto Katsuta.

The WRC Generations gameplay videos gave us a first look at a new Rally Sweden snow stage and a narrow Rally Japan tarmac stage. We get to see both drivers get to grips with WRC Generations' revamped physics and new hybrid boost systems.

Release trailer

When WRC Generations launched earlier this month, Nacon produced a high-octane trailer to celebrate release day. It gives you a great idea of what to expect when you pick the game up and you can check it out below:

Hybrid Cars trailer

After the announcement trailer combined live-action footage with in-game engine video of the new Rally Sweden, the Hybrid Cars trailer shown at Nacon Connect gave us a proper look at the Rally1 cars in action.

It also shows how you'll need to choose a driving strategy with options letting you manage the electric boost mapping to maximise performance.

The WRC Generations announcement trailer also showed what to expect when we boot the game up.

In the first footage of Kylotonn’s final WRC game, we got a glimpse of the new snow-filled special stage based in Umea, the new location of Rally Sweden in the 2022 WRC Calendar.

With 22 different countries and 165 Special Stages, WRC Generations is billed as “the most complete rally game" yet.

Also debuting in WRC Generations are the new hybrid Rally1 cars, which debuted in the real-life 2022 WRC. New regulations combine a 1.6-litre turbo engine combined with a 100kW electric motor.

Combined, this setup produces over 500 hp, making the hybrid Rally1 cars much more powerful than their predecessors, combined with simplified aerodynamics. Sadly, the new hybrid Rally1 cars were not shown in the trailer.

We did, however, get a first look at WRC Generations’ expanded historic car roster. The next WRC game will feature 37 classic cars, including the Peugeot 205 T16 and Tommi Makinen's Mitsubishi Lancer Evo shown in the announcement trailer.

Release date

Arriving later than usual after a delay, WRC Generations arrived onto PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, and PC on 3 November. The Nintendo Switch version will follow on 19th December.
