Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ: EA) announces an exciting addition to EA SPORTS™ WRC’s gaming experience. Starting April 30, this much-anticipated feature will be available as a complimentary update* for all PC players via Steam, Epic, and EA App through compatible headsets, offering players an entirely new way to experience the world of rallying.

EA SPORTS™ WRC is the first official FIA World Rally Championship game to offer a VR experience. The new addition is poised to take the WRC player experience to an unprecedented level of immersion, bringing them closer than ever to the heart-pounding thrill of driving a rally car.

“We are really excited to be bringing VR to EA Sports WRC”, says Creative Director, Matthew Battison, “With VR, players will be able to experience rallying directly through the driver’s eyes and immerse themselves fully in the challenging experience that the WRC offers. They will be able to feel the adrenaline as they reach incredible speeds and tackle gravity-defying jumps in the unforgiving asphalt, gravel, and snow stages, while soaking in the highly detailed environments of the 18 game locations.”

The VR addition supports all single and multiplayer modes in the game. A wide range of headsets will be compatible with EA SPORTS™ WRC, including Meta Quest 3, Meta Quest 2, Meta Quest Pro, Valve Index, Oculus Rift S, Oculus CV1, and HTC Vive.
