EA Sports WRC brings the FIA World Rally Championship to PC VR today.

Released last November for flatscreen platforms, EA Sports WRC is the latest racing game from Codemasters based on the FIA World Rally Championship. Featuring over 200 rally stages across 18 official WRC locations, 78 real-world cars from the last 60 years and customizable rally cars, PC VR support will become available as a free update for all existing owners on Steam, EGS and the EA App. Here's the new gameplay trailer.

Codemasters states they're calling this a beta because it's "a new project for our development team," explaining that VR support for Dirt Rally 2.0 used external partners while WRC is an internal effort. They also note that due to the wide range of VR headsets and PC hardware specifications currently available, it cannot test for all scenarios and configurations. Headset support is listed for Quest 2/Pro/3, Valve Index, Rift S, Oculus CV1 and HTC Vive.

It's a busy time for VR racers. Alongside the upcoming EXOcars and F1 24, publisher 505 Games and developer Kunos Simulazioni recently confirmed that Assetto Corsa Evo will launch this year. However, little else is known beyond a brief teaser trailer; platforms and VR support are currently unconfirmed. We'll keep you updated if we learn more.

EA Sports WRC is available now on Steam. As for other platforms, the publisher confirmed that "there are currently no plans to add VR to EA Sports WRC on console in any capacity, beta or otherwise."
