Minimum and recommended requirements of WRC 8 for PC

Just a few hours ago, the minimum and recommended requirements of the eighth installment of the well-known delivery of realistic driving simulation of the World Rally Championship, better known as WRC 8, have been published on Steam.

In this title, we will again take part in the most difficult and unpredictable motorsports competition in the world, where drivers, co-pilots and even technical staff will have a role to get the best out of these cars. But not everything will remain in the human factor, and that is that the performance of the cars will depend largely on the weather conditions.

Interestingly, although this installment will introduce graphic novelties such as off-road physics for all road surfaces, it surprises with some really modest minimum requirements, well below other games of the genre:

WRC 8 Minimum Requirements

  • Operating System: Windows 7 de 64 bits.
  • Procesador: Intel Core i3-540 o AMD Phenom II X4 940.
  • Memory: 4 GB of RAM.
  • Graphics card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560 or AMD Radeon HD 6870.
  • DirectX: Version 11.
  • Sound card: DirectX compatible.
  • Storage: 19 GB of free space available.

WRC 8 Recommended requirements

  • Operating System: Windows 7 de 64 bits.
  • Processor : Intel Core i7-3770 or AMD FX 8350.
  • Memory: 8 GB of RAM.
  • Graphics card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780 or AMD Radeon R9 290.
  • DirectX: Version 11.
  • Sound card: DirectX compatible.
  • Storage: 19 GB of free space available.

Again we meet quite low requirements, especially considering that we talk about a title that will also be released on consoles such as Xbox One and PS4. However, the fact that the title will also be available on the Nintendo portable console, where we have already seen other considerable downgrades, could have driven the search for these more modest requirements.

WRC 8 FIA World Rally Championship will arrive on September 5 to PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch, under a price between 59.99 euros and 69.99 euros depending on the platform.
