This guide was developed playing the VITA version of the game. There is NO Cross Save on this title, so this is a potential double (P) for anyone who is interested. There is NO online for the VITA Version of this game.

 

Introduction

 

The World Rally Championship (WRC) is a rallying series organized by the FIA and the racing is styled in time trial formats. This is not a game like F1 where other cars are on the track at the same time as you. The series currently consists of three-day events driven on surfaces ranging from gravel and tarmac to snow and ice. Each rally is split into 6 special stages which are run against the clock on closed roads. If you win the stage, you earn the points towards the overall winner of the event. In this game, the events are then rolled up into a driver championship for each level of racing, WRC, WRC2, and WRC Juniors.

 

To be noted past versions of the WRC series were developed by Milestone S.r.l. and WRC 5 is Kylotonn Games and while the game works very similar, the mechanics of the driving feel slightly different. Overall, if you liked the past titles, then you will like this one as the game plays and feels very similar once you get a feel for the cars. Unlike the past titles, the competition is more balanced to your skills, so no longer can you anticipate winning events by over 2 minutes, now it will be closer to 30 seconds.

 

Roadmap

 

TIME SAVING NOTE - If you want to save yourself a ton of frustration and replays, head into the settings and change the difficulty of your opponents to easy. At this setting you should be able to win every rally stage and win the overall 3 day event with 30 seconds of breathing room. See below for the setup of game to ease the pain:

PATCH NOTE!!!!!

 

The latest version of the patch has removed the ability to complete the "DNF" strategy outlined in Steps 1 & 2. You can overcome this by completing steps 1 & 2 before downloading the patch. After you have completed these sections, then install the patch and move forward.

 

If you have the digital version of the game, there is a high probability that the game will already been patched when you download it, thus not allowing you the ability to remove the patch.

 

Step 1 - Complete Quick play event related trophies

 

This seems like it would be extremely time intensive, however if you use the trick outlined in Explorer then this can be done in under and hour.

 

During this step you will earn:

 

Winner! (B)

Well done! (B)

"Around the World" (G)

Explorer (S)

Rally driver (G)

Mechanic (B)

"Ready at Dawn" (B)

Specialist (B)

Bring it on! (S)

 

Step 2 - Complete Couch Multiplayer

 

Using the same method as above, you will spend more time looking at the loading screen than actually playing the game.

 

During this step you will earn:

 

Couch surfer (S)

Step 3 - Career Mode

This is where you will spend your time. You have about 27 events ahead if you with each event lasting 20-25 minutes and loading times, which are less than ideal. If for some reason you do not earn one of the specific event trophies for winning that event, you will have to play another season to get back to that event, so make a point of winning everything you can.

 

During this step you will earn:

 

"Persona" (B)

Sign here (S)

Things are getting serious (S)

Podium (S)

Looks good on your C.V. (S)

Monte Carlo! (B)

Sweden! (B)

Mexico! (B)

Argentina! (B)

Portugal! (B)

Sardinia! (B)

Poland! (B)

Finland! (B)

Germany! (B)

Australia! (B)

Corsica! (B)

Spain! (B)

Wales! (B)

First step (G)

Second step... (G)

World Champion! (G)

 

 

Step 4 - Clean up

 

In case you somehow missed these during the above, time to earn:

 

"Beam me up, Scotty" (B)(H)

"Back in Time" (B)(H)

PATCH NOTE!!!!!

 

The latest version of the patch has removed the ability to complete the "DNF" strategy outlined here. After you have completed these sections, then install the patch and move forward.

 

Now that you have won a stage you can actually quickly run through all of the stages without having to race them. When the stage starts, drive across the starting line then hit “start” and then choose “Give Up” You will get credit for the even as there is no requirement to win or cross the finish line, a DNF is a finish in this game.

 

Thanks to PatricioUSA2 for confirming that this method does with the PS4 version as well

Sign your first contract in Career mode.

 

Once you have created your customer driver, you will then drive your first race and given a contract.

 

http://www.playstationtrophies.org/images/trophies/3645/ac2.jpg Things are getting serious (S) :tagstory:

Sign a contract with Volkswagen, Citroën, Hyundai or M-Sport.

 

After you win the world championship in WRC, the big boys will come calling. Sign you contract with one of these teams between seasons and you are done. Most likely this will be the last career trophy you earn.

Win a Special Stage in Career mode.

 

Win your first event in WRC Juniors and this will come. If you are not wining events, then you will have a hard time wining the championships. Drive clean and use your rewinds liberally so that you are putting up the best times you can.

 

http://www.playstationtrophies.org/images/trophies/3645/294.jpg Rally driver (G) :tagdifficulty:

Win a Special Stage in Simulation setting in any off-line mode.

 

Simply set your settings to “simulation” and have a crack at it. You will crash your car a lot during this mode, but that also means excessive repairs. Use the rewind where it makes sense. If the competition is set to “easy”, it should not matter if you make a mess of your car as the competition will as well. Also a great time to get "Ready at Dawn" , Bring it on! , Specialist

Problem

French Race Francardo - Sermano is causing me problems. I did not win it in the JRC so I thought I would be able to do it in WRC2 and I keep coming last the CPU has 20 seconds on me and I'm playing it on easy and the other races have not caused me any problems.

 

Is the AI glitched on this race as I don't think i will be able to win the french race ???

 

Fix

I was in the lead after stage one. The second stage is where no matter what I did I was 30 seconds + behind the leader. I restarted stage and tried again, got a slightly better time, but was still 30 seconds behind.

 

I restarted stage again, but instead of pressing start, I chose the option to quit to main menu. Went back to career and it started me on stage three. Finished stage three and I was in the lead in the overall standings rather than being 20 or so seconds back.

 

PATCH NOTE!!!!!

 

After you download the patch for the game this stage is easy to beat like the rest of them

 

There are reports of no patch being available in some regions. Here is how Kfree beat it:

 

This is what I did. Didn't work the first 2 times but the 3rd time I was close to the top after the third race and finally got the trophy and the plat. :dance:

 

 

Thank you to Ghost Gaming!

http://www.playstationtrophies.org/images/trophies/3645/430.jpg Mechanic (B)

Repair your car for the first time.

 

Between stages, you will have an opportunity to repair your car. Fix anything on it and the trophy will pop. Also see "Ready at Dawn".

 

http://www.playstationtrophies.org/images/trophies/3645/066.jpg "Ready at Dawn" (B)

Exceed the repair time budget for the first time.

 

Simply use up all your repair time between stages for this trophy. When in simulation mode, you will do more than enough damage to the car. See Rally driver.

 

http://i.imgur.com/3V25BSp.jpg

 

As you can see in the image I have highlighted, the area where you see the time for repair. Just exceed the 45 minutes of repair time with all of your repairs for this trophy.

 

http://www.playstationtrophies.org/images/trophies/3645/753.jpg Specialist (B)

Tune your car for the first time.

 

You actually do not have to save any changes here. Simply head into the car setup in the garage, switch a setting and the trophy is yours, then move the setting back. A good place to get this is while getting Rally driver.

 

http://www.playstationtrophies.org/images/trophies/3645/c7b.jpg Bring it on! (S)

Finish a Special Stage using tyres that arent adapted 'to the road surface.

 

Look at the surface for the event. If it is pavement, then use gravel tires, etc. See Rally driver as it is a great time to get it done

 

http://www.playstationtrophies.org/images/trophies/3645/0e3.jpg Couch surfer (S) :tagsolocoop:

Finish a Special Stage in Offline Multiplayer mode with at least two players.

 

PATCH NOTE!!!!!

 

The latest version of the patch has removed the ability to complete the "DNF" strategy outlined here. You can overcome this by completing steps 1 & 2 of the roadmap before downloading the patch. After you have completed these sections, then install the patch and move forward.

 

Head into offline multiplayer for this. Here you do not even need to drive the event. Player 1, start race then give up using the method outlined in Explorer . Then repeat for player 2 and the trophy will pop at the summary screen.

http://www.playstationtrophies.org/images/trophies/3645/cdc.jpg "Beam me up, Scotty" (B)(H)

Respawn manually for the first time.

 

Simple, while driving in career mode simply push down on the directional :down: and hold it.

 

http://www.playstationtrophies.org/images/trophies/3645/66f.jpg "Back in Time" (B)(H)

Use the Snapshot for the first time.

 

Hold the triangle :triangle: for this; for lack of a better description, this is a rewind feature for the game. It takes you back to the last checkpoint and you may lose a little progress, but you also have the time reset.

Can't just replay an event. But it is ok, you can still win the championship and then do france in wrc2 or wrc for that trophy

Nice tip on the explorer trophy hope it works on the PS4

 

I get my PS4 copy in a couple of weeks, once I can confirm it I will update this guide with Online and PS4 information.

I'm following the tips of Explorer however I didn't receive Around the World after giving up my first special stage. Am I doing something wrong? I start each stage, drive past the first 2 little boxes by the starting gate then give up but still no trophy.

 

For around the world you have to do it for each race, not just one event. You must have missed an event somewhere

  • 2 weeks later...
Now gamefly delayed it to 11/24 now. And jmac mentioned best buy's was 10/30. Very odd. Just keeps getting pushed back. Who knows how many time there gona delay this. I never played any wrc games but anxious to play it cause i love the dirt game series and been craving for a game like that.

 

Yeah my bestbuy pre-order was pushed back as well. Funny thing is that it is already available for download in the store
