Electronic Arts have released an update for EA Sports WRC a little earlier than I expected to deploy the previously announced Season 4 content, including 67 real-world 2024 season and historic new Moments and 20 fresh Rally Pass levels.

VR is still expected later this month for PC players in a separate update. EA also confirmed on Twitter today that VR will not be supported on console.
