Last week, BigBen Interactive shared some more details about V-Rally 4, and more precisely its rally mode:
A rally is made up of several timed stages called “specials” that severely test a driver’s nerves. To be a successful rally driver, you need to love risk, be able to keep your head straight when going through tricky areas, and have the ability to adapt when unexpected weather complicates matters. Your co-driver’s notes are often critical.
In V-Rally 4’s rally mode, the highly varied environments of the specials require you to draw on all your driving skills. Speed through the breathtaking environments of Malaysia, Japan, Siberia, Kenya, Sequoia Park and Monument Valley! Pay attention to your co-driver’s notes displayed on the screen so you won’t be surprised by a tight bend!
Entire road networks have been created for the rally environments, with an impressive level of detail. In addition to the pre-defined specials, V-Rally 4 provides an even more unpredictable challenge through the specials generator. Just like rally organizers, the specials generator randomly opens and closes road intersections, which means there are hundreds of possible routes through each environment. Your route is not a collection of pre-defined roads and bends: it uses parts of the road network, and each special is different, with unique characteristics. That makes it rather difficult to learn the bends by heart. Once at the starting line, you’ll need to demonstrate courage and concentration!
V-Rally 4 (Switch) comes out later this year worldwide.
Last week, Bandai-Namco announced a rather unexpected collaboration for Neko Tomo, with… the Idolmaster series, of all things! So far, two special outfits have been revealed, with more to come in the future.
Here’s two videos and some pictures:
