With WRC 9, the passionate developers of the French studio KT Racing have pulled out all the stops to once again meet the high expectations of rally fans by providing even more realism and challenges.
Providing rally fans with all the official content of the Championship and multiple improvements, WRC 9 will now be playable at 60FPS for an even more immersive driving experience. Owners PlayStation®5 console will be able to hone their driving skills in even more spectacular environments and enjoy an unparalleled feeling of speed in a WRC game.
On PlayStation®5, KT Racing is using the new haptic features of the DualSense™ controller to develop and improve the feedback provided by the different road surfaces encountered in the World Rally Championship. Thanks to the subtle vibrations possible with the DualSense™ controller, players can experience the most realistic driving sensations yet and feel the difference between asphalt, gravel and snow, as well as the direction of impacts. In terms of gameplay, the controller’s innovative triggers have also been used to provide more feedback. They react to the vehicle’s condition, such as making acceleration harder when the car is damaged.
In WRC 9, players are thrust into the heart of the new FIA World Rally Championship season with all content in the yearly calendar and much more:
- 3 new rallies: Japan, New Zealand, Kenya
- Over 50 official teams and their livery from the WRC, WRC 2, WRC 3 and Junior WRC
Over 15 bonus cars that have left their mark on the history of the WRC
WRC 9 has multiple improvements and new features for rally gaming fans and it has even more realism and challenges.
An enhanced and more challenging Career mode- with enhanced gameplay mechanics, new opportunities to upgrade your team, a wider variety of events and a stronger link to what the real-world championship teams are doing throughout the year.
Even more content- includes extensive content with three new events added to the calendar: the return of Kenya’s iconic Safari Rally, Rally Japan and its challenging narrow asphalt roads, the beautiful scenery of Rally New Zealand and two other rallies with completely redesigned environments.

An even more realistic game experience- To improve and refine certain vehicle behaviours, the developers have again focused on the realism of car physics – including suspensions, braking and mass transfer – to take authenticity to the next level. This attention to detail faithfully reproduces the vehicles’ responsiveness on all surfaces and in all conditions found in the real championship. A special focus on sound also provides deeper immersion.
