Bigben Interactive and Kylotonn Racing Games announced that V-Rally 4, the off-road racing game, is currently available for download as a digital title as well as purchasable as a physical boxed product from retail outlets for both the Xbox One and the PlayStation 4. The game is also scheduled to release later in the month on Steam for PC starting September 25th. Later on after that, Bigben has plans on releasing the game for the Nintendo Switch at some point during the winter.
The game comes jam-packed with five different rally racing disciplines, including classic Rally, Extreme-Khana, V-Rally Cross, Buggy, and Hillclimb.
You’ll encounter all five of these disciplines across a revamped career mode, where you tour the world and attempt to become a rally champion in each discipline. Along the way you’ll get to unlock new vehicles, new upgrades, and new choices that will help you elevate your skills in the world of rally racing. Additionally, you’ll have to manage the meta-game of keeping your car up and running, including hiring in crew, agents, mechanics, and engineers. All of them will affect how your car(s) perform and ultimately how well you’ll perform on the track.
You can see some of these features in action with the official launch trailer of the game below.
The trailer starts with a look at some of the different vehicles from each class, and boy oh boy do they sound oh so delicious.
The trailer is comprised of in-engine footage rather than actual gameplay, but it attempts to give gamers an idea of what to expect from the newly released game as far as racing and physics is concerned. However, I would have really preferred if we saw natural in-game footage instead just to get a good scope of how the physics perform, what the weather conditions are like, how the weather affects the physics, and the collision models.
Anyway, there are 22 environments in total, six rally environments, and a multitude of stages made out of the stage generator.
There’s also an online multiplayer mode for up to eight people and an offline split-screen mode for local play.
The game also sports 50 operable vehicles in total, so there’s plenty of options to scour.
V-Rally 4 is currently available for $59.99. You can learn more by visiting the official website.
