I-play has announced a deal with FIA World Rally Championship to create a game based on the sport, which is one of the largest spectator sports in the world.
The game features rally racing in 16 different countries, in all terrains and all weathers, and at any time of the day or night. I-play plans to incorporate one-thumb gameplay, but hopes to make the game difficult to master, while easy to pick up and play.
â€œThe World Rally Championship is one of the most dynamic and challenging motorsports imaginable,” said Leighton Webb, SVP of content strategy and licensing at I-play. “Mobile gamers will be able to experience the dangerous and gruelling nature of the racing sport under every weather condition possible as they aim to master the rally circuits to become the ultimate champion in this authentic mobile iteration of the World Rally Championship.â€
Both 2D and 3D versions of the game are being developed.
