NACON and Toyota Motor Europe (TME) are pleased to announce the upcoming arrival of the Toyota GR Yaris Concept in WRC 9, the official video game of the FIA World Rally Championship. This brand-new vehicle, derived from the GR Yaris road car and fully optimized for the competition, will join WRC 9’s roster next December, along with the second free update to be deployed on PlayStation®4, Xbox One, and the Epic Games Store for PC. This update will also be available on next-generation consoles at a later date.
NACON was able to work with Toyota GAZOO Racing, the official sponsor of the eSports WRC season, to give WRC 9 players the chance to sit behind the wheel of the all-new GR Yaris Rally Concept. Based on the well-known GR Yaris, this new ultra-high-performance model integrates all the cutting-edge technologies developed by Toyota for the WRC, including a four-wheel drive for superior handling on roads. Specially designed for competitions, it has been faithfully reproduced in WRC 9 for fans to enjoy an authentic experience.
Much more than a simple car, the GR Yaris is the culmination of Toyota’s experience in WRC racing. The development of the car benefited from the combined expertise of Toyota GAZOO Racing and feedback from some of the WRC’s top drivers. The team and its Yaris WRC, which one of the Manufacturer’s titles in the 2018 season, is already a fan favorite. And rally car enthusiasts can now take the wheel of the GR Yaris Rally Concept for the first time in a video game!
