A game series long thought lost to the historical archives of video games, V-Rally is set to make a come back.
For many, they will remember the strong competitive spirit that existed in the 32-Bit era to achieve the accolade of the greatest rally game. With the likes of Sega Rally on the Sega Saturn, Colin Mcrae Rally on the Playstation, and V-Rally, all wanting to be the best.
The last time that V-Rally graced the world of video games, the year was 2002/2003 with the release of V-Rally 3.
The game will release in September of this year for Nintendo Switch, Playstation 4, and Xbox One.
"Absent since 2003, the epic title is now making its big comeback with more than 50 models of emblematic rallying and extreme motorsports vehicles. Nostalgic players can collect, upgrade, customize, and master the favorite cars, three of which can be seen in today's trailer - a Porsche 911 Safari, a Ford Mustang and a Ford Fiesta RS RX. V-Rally was first released in 1997 on PlayStation 1, revolutionizing the genre with 3 game modes and a selection of real-world vehicles and famous tracks. Some years later, on PlayStation 2, V-Rally 3 released to huge success, adding a career mode with decisive team choices and an even greater number of tracks.
With V-Rally 4, the goal is to remain faithful to the identity of the franchise, which earned the support of millions of fans, and to strike a perfect balance between sensation, presentation, and simulation, while offering the best graphics and gameplay the latest technology can support. "It's a real privilege for me to once again work on the V-Rally series," said Alain Jarniou, Game Director at Kylotonn. "It's an extraordinary title that I have a very special connection to. I had a chance to join the team that created V-Rally to develop V-Rally 3 on the PlayStation 2 as a programmer. I'm very proud to be working on the franchise again 15 years later."
