WRC 7 Gets a New Esports-Ready Patch

WRC Series 241 January 18, 2018 by

Kylotonn Games has deployed a new update for WRC 7 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. The main motivation behind the patch is to prepare the game for its use in the upcoming WRC Esports series.

The patch brings a variety of technical upgrades under the game’s skin. Kylotonn has made a few key tweaks to tracks in the game, in order to stop potential cheating during online qualifying. The stage designs have received various alterations to stop players exploiting certain sections of impacted tracks. For example, where a driver could use jumps or hills on a track to skip sections, this should no longer be possible. Kudos to Kylotonn for getting the patch out before the issues could influence the upcoming Esports series.

There are also other minor fixes relating to the overall presentation and authenticity of WRC 7. These changes include fixing nationalities of those who compete in the series and the names of some teams and cars. We suppose if you’re going to have a fully licensed game, it better be totally accurate.

You can find the full list of changes below. Don’t forget to check out our review of WRC 7 as well.
