Developers don’t have to give us free updates after a game launches, so it’s nice to recognize when some do. WRC 9 is receiving it’s first free update that will add a variety of new content. First, we have six new challenging special stages for Neste Rally Finland filled with plenty of blind jumps. Next, Haydon Paddon and co-driver John Kennard will be joining WRC 9 in their Hyundai i20 WRC. Finally, a new photo mode is being added to capture the action of your rally race. It’s all included in the handy trailer at the top.

As I mentioned, it’s the first free update. A second update is coming soon that will add a co-driver mode. According to the game’s official site, it “allows a fellow player to read pace notes to the driver.” I’m not sure I want a backseat rally driver, but it’s too early to judge. New special stages are also coming to Portugal at some point in the future too.

If you own WRC 9 (review), the new content is free, and it’s hard to be anything but happy about that.

Jason became terminally addicted to videogames after receiving the NES at an early age. This addiction grew to include PC gaming and was cemented with the launch of the PS2. From then on, he was afflicted with epic RPGs, tense shooters, and deep strategy games, never becoming skillful, but never able to quit. He continues to play games (poorly) and share his passion for them to anyone willing to listen.
