Bigben Interactive and Milestone Announce WRC4
Bigben Interactive in collaboration with the development studio Milestone, recognized racing videogame developer, announces WRC FIA World Rally Championship 4, the fourth chapter of one of the most loved series that will be on shelves in October 2013 for PlayStation 3, PlayStation Vita, Xbox 360 and Windows PC.
Following the path taken with the previous chapter of the series, WRC 4 will feature a new amazing mix of elements with high graphical detail and real in-game sound. All these improvements are possible thanks to the community’s feedback. The main characteristics that will be included into this new game are: loyalty to the license, an exciting game experience, accessibility for first-time players and a dynamic and competitive online game mode.
Among new features of this 2013 edition, players will have the chance to experience new lighting conditions, new weather effects depending on the stage, and a brand new Career Mode to put the player into real driver’s shoes . Realism and immersion are two of the most important pillars of the development, with impressive 3D environments and an HDR system that will grant the best in-game performance.
“We are very pleased and proud to become the publisher of this famous racing franchise”, said Alain Falc, CEO of Bigben Interactive. “This is a new step in the partnership built with Milestone over the past few years. All our efforts are done to offer players the most complete and realistic WRC videogame”, concludes Alain Falc.
“We’re really happy to be part of this exciting WRC 4 announcement and all the news included into the 2013 version of the game”, affirms Luisa Bixio, Marketing and Sales Director. “This brand new chapter, different from the previous reboot of the series, will include many of the improvements requested by the community. A lot of the features that we’ve seen on the official Facebook page or received by mail have been incorporated. We’re convinced that WRC 4 represents a step forward for the series and will be appreciated by players”, concludes Bixio.
WRC 4 is the official game for the 2013 FIA World Rally Championship and features all the rallies from the 2013 WRC calendar, complete with all leading WRC teams and drivers in the revamped Career Mode to turn players into real WRC drivers.
