DiRTy Gossip about WRC8

Recommended Posts

Sorry for my bad English: I have both games (Dirt Rally 2.0 and WRC 8 ) and loving both of them. The stages and weather effects are very good in WRC 8. At the framerate: i thought i was going to have a bad time with the framemate, but it is not effecting me. 60 fps would be better (like Dirt Rally 2.0), but the framerate is steady and graphics are good. Overall: a solid 9 out of 10 for me. Will continue too play both of them, but overall will put more hours into the WRC 8 career mode.

Yes, sometimes it's feels like a boat :), however career is good (not like in Dirt, where is boring) and stages (most of them) are good, they don't feel like being generated by computer like in Dirt. Being able to drive the newest WRC cars is also something worth trying... driving all old versions of Subaru and Focus in Dirt is getting also bit boring. 

um, do you know that the stages (even the short ones) in WRC8 are sections of real roads stuck together, while the stages in Dirt Rally 2 are replicas of real roads?

Dirt 4 had procedural generation of stages. WRC 8 has fake stages. DR2 does not.

and you think that having the WRC class (4 vehicles) is better than having ALL 40+ historic cars, plus RGT in DR2? because the other classes in WRC 8 (R5 and R2) are in Dirt as well...

agreed, but i am swaying more to WRC 8 as i feel it's alot more in depth and intuitive. Going back to DR 2.0 does not feel strange, neither does going back to WRC 8.

Does anybody have some good controller settings for WRC 8? Sometimes the default setup is a little bit twitchy when driving.

I'm still waiting to play it; CDkeys bumped the release date back to the 19th, I just checked and they've sent me a Steam key?! But the Steam version isn't released until Sep 2020!

Either I have a long time to wait or they've somehow got access to the Steam version early, I dunno. Am asking them, as they say it's an Epic Games Store key on their site...

cant attest to the extent of damage to cars that happen, but i can tell you that cars do some "funky" weird stuff on impact with certain objects.Not realistic i may say .

So guys, how is damage in WRC8? Do you have to drive carefully? Is it easy to get a terminal crash?

Yes you have to drive carefully. Terminal damage or permacrash is a option in the game. Haven't tried it yet.

I have increased the deadzone setting. It's a bit better now.

I would say damage is quite punishing on max settings. You can definitely notice the decrease in performance of your car through a rally, even just from driving hard without any crashes.

WRC 8 may not be perfect in damage but neither is DR 2.0. A step backwards actually I think. Really I don’t feel DR 2.0 damage is great compared to DR or even past games in the DIrt series. Cosmetic damage only seems to get a point and nothing further happens. No more ripping a tyre off and driving a stage on three wheels, hitting something and flipping 10 times in the air. Why can’t I destroy the car down to the roll cage. Also in DR you really had to manage the car if you had radiator damage, brakes etc. Seems the cars can take more damage in this area now.

I wouldn't agree. With hardcore damage on it's much easier to break the radiator or get a terminal damage in DR2 than in DR1.
