Podcast: Talking cars with the creators of EA SPORTS WRC

We explore the new game's 78 cars as well as its custom Builder Mode on the latest SPIN, The Rally Pod


Have you ever wanted to build your own rally car from scratch? Ever wondered what it would be like to drive a rear-engined Rally1 car? Or wanted to fit a custom gear shifter to add a bit of flare to your in-car experience?

Well with EA SPORTS WRC, you can!

Released in November, the official video game of the World Rally Championship offers players the chance to design and create their own cars for each of the championship’s top three classes through the game’s “Builder Mode”.

To explain exactly what weird and wonderful creations are possible with this feature, Codemasters’ Ross Gowing and Jon Armstrong join Luke Barry once again on this week’s SPIN, The Rally Pod.

But that’s not the only topic the guys get into, as Ross and Jon also reveal some behind-the-scenes secrets about how the game’s 78-strong car list came to be decided, and even tell us the amazing story of how they managed to get Volkswagen’s 2017-specification Polo R WRC into EA SPORTS WRC, despite that car never completing a single competition mile.

So it doesn’t matter if you’re a gaming fan, just a fan of cars, or both! Sit back and enjoy this great conversation, as we talk cars with the creators of the official WRC video game.
