Physics, graphics, weather, level design and game modes - player feedback has been collected on all new features. Gameplay-wise, WRC 8 once again presents you with numerous challenges. Due to a lot of different locations, drivers have to adapt to new conditions every time. At each venue, you'll find different surfaces - be it loose gravel, dry asphalt or icy snow. A major innovation is the dynamic weather effect, which adds to the realistic feel. This means that the external conditions during a race can change from bright sunshine to heavy rain storm in just a few minutes. This, in turn, affects the handling of your car. If water collects in puddles, traction is reduced and you'll need to be extremely careful. The official drivers, teams and tracks provide an authentic rally feeling. The controls are very sophisticated, but also accessible for beginners thanks to the various driving aids.
