EA Sports' Anticipated WRC Game Will Take a Long, Easy Left to PS5 Soon 1

We’ve been hearing about EA Sports’ officially licensed World Rally Championship title for what feels like an eternity, but Dealabs’ ever-reliable billbil-kun has now broken the first details. The racing simulation – launching on PS5 alongside other modern consoles – is targeting a 3rd November launch date, with three-day early access available with the Champions Edition. A 10-hour trial will also be available to EA Play members from 31st October.

This is consistent with most major EA Sports launches, so it all adds up. While it is odd that we haven’t seen or heard anything about the game yet, most publishers are switching to shorter promotional cycles, so there’s plenty of time for the firm to get the message out ahead of launch. One interesting point to note is that billbil-kun claims the game will cost £49.99/$49.99, which is significantly less than most modern PS5 releases these days.

To further verify the rumour, Dealabs says that the game’s box art will feature a Ford Puma Rally1 M-Sport on a snowy track at Rally Sweden 2023. Of course, assuming all this is accurate we’d expect the game to be announced within the next month or so, because EA Sports will need at least six weeks to build up to its release.
