WRC5-Screenbatch2-5-Solberg-FinlandThere has been depressingly few truely good rally games in recent years, but it looks like they might be making a welcome return to the world of racing simulation.

With Codemasters, well known for their Colin McRae Rally series, currently developing Dirt Rally, publisher Bigben Interactive and developers Kylotonn Games have recently released a new trailer for WRC 5, announcing that it will release sometime in October.

The trailer features the Ford Fiesta RS WRC from the M-Ford World Rally Team ripping up tracks in a variety of locations and conditions.

They also released a number of screenshots which you can check out below.

With these new trailer & screenshots, we want to show different locations and challenges that are waiting for players” says Alain Jarniou, WRC 5 Game Director. “From the frozen roads and snow banks of Sweden, to the narrow and sandy lines of Sardinia, or even the fast technical sections of Finland, we really want to put players into real drivers’ gloves. That’s why we worked hard to recreate the special atmosphere at each of the 13 rallies that makes the WRC so diverse.”

WRC 5 is scheduled for Autumn 2015 and will be available for Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, Playstation 3, PlayStation  Vita and PC.
