Nacon and KT Racing have detailed the upcoming December update for WRC 9, revealing the Toyota GR Yaris concept as a brand new machine that players will be able to throw around the mountains next month.
The update will hit PS4, Xbox One, and PC in December, but the presser states that the update will “also be available for next-generation consoles at a later date.” Let’s hope it’s not too long of a wait…
The December update brings much more than just a fancy new car. The update will bring players even closer to the realism of the Championship with the upcoming inclusion of the co-driver mode, which is a brand new feature for the series. It will allow two players online to race in the same car, with one doing the driving, and the other delivering the pacenotes. Just, er, make sure your co-driver knows their stuff, otherwise you’ll be racing in the blind. In other words, don’t invite me to be your co-driver unless you want to lose.
There’s more, too. Rally Portugal will be getting six new special stages to compete in, with tracks taking players through forests, villages, and wide-open spaces with breathtaking landscapes, bringing hours of new challenges to the table. And, to put a nice little cherry on the top of this December update cake, a new livery for the Citroën C3 WRC joins the list of WRC 9 teams: Pirelli Tyre Team with Andreas Mikkelsen and Anders Jaeger.
