The first free content update for WRC 9 has arrived, bringing with it some new course locations and game features. KT Racing refers to the update as the “Blind Jumps” update, though your game knows it as the 4.4GB v1.04 patch.
To coincide with the release of WRC 9, Fanatec has revealed a new, officially licensed wheel. Going by the name of the CSL Elite Steering Wheel WRC, the controller will be the official WRC Esports wheel when the tournament gets underway.
Depending on your region and platform, WRC 9 will likely be available right now. Save for console users in North America, who have to wait until September 8, players will already be getting to grips (or lack of grips) with the latest in Kylotonn’s annual rally sim series.
Kylotonn Games has confirmed a release date for its next installment in the WRC series, the official game of the FIA World Rally Championship. WRC 9 will arrive on current generation consoles — Xbox One and PlayStation 4 — this September, with a Switch version to follow. However, more importantly, KT has also revealed that the game will appear on next-gen consoles too. That makes it the first fully confirmed PlayStation 5 title.
