Nacon and KT Racing have released a new gameplay trailer for the upcoming WRC 9, set to release on September 3rd for PC, PS4 and Xbox One. The game will also be available for Nintendo Switch, PS5 and Xbox Series X at a later time.
The new trailer, available below, showcases the new New Zealand Rally track. It also gives a glimpse of what it took to faithfull recreate the iconic Rally New Zealand, which is making a big return to the FIA World Rally Championship calendar after a seven-year absence.
In this brand-new rally, players will go head-to-head along the rugged coastline and wild lands around Auckland in the heart of the North Island.
Here’s what lead KT developer, Benoît Gomes, had to say:
“Roads in New-Zealand are amongst the most beautiful and the most appreciated in the Championship’s history.Famous for its fast chains of turns and a sustained pace rhythm, along with breath-taking landscapes, Rally New-Zealand truly offers a particular experience. A long preparation work allowed us to replicate, as closely as possible, the luxuriant vegetation, the light and unique ocean views, as well as the road’s topography and surfaces, mainly composed of gravel. We’re convinced that players will enjoy taking up this challenge as much as we did in WRC 9.”
