Most sports games these days do have at least one edition that gives a few days early access, but with pre-orders already open there is no chance of Nacon adding one now.

Gameplay

The first pieces of gameplay have finally come through and WRC 10 simply looks stunning.

Refined gameplay

WRC 10 will make a big leap in physics too.

Aerodynamics, turbo, and braking have all received an overhaul so that the game is more accurate than ever. The audio has also been completely reworked to make the game more immersive than ever.

PS5 could offer best experience

While the game will be available on the old and new generation of both consoles, the PS5 should offer the best experience for anyone playing on pad.

This is thanks to the DualSense controller and its sensational features. Following the WRC 9 PS5 update, the game became a completely different experience thanks to the haptic feedback and adaptive triggers.

It allows pad players to feel the road surface, the grip levels, and the performance in brakes and engine like never before.

Create your own team

Career mode is getting a refresh, as a new livery editor gives players the chance to create their own team.

Quite how deep this goes we don't yet know. It would be great to be able to name the team and pick out our own sponsors and manufacturer deal but that all remains to be seen.

The 2021 championship rallies will be included, though whether this is the recently reworked calendar or the season "as it was meant to be" we don't yet know.
