Amongst the game's highlights is the inclusion of a Gymkhana mode - this is a high-risk style of racing that involves a number of advanced maneuvers including drifting, 180 and 360-degree spins and figure-8s. Professional driver and member of the Monster World Rally Team Ken Block has lent his customized DC Shoes Ford Fiesta to the game, providing fans with unprecedented access to the inner workings of the vehicle. Additional cars from the WRC (World Rally Championship) have been provided, alongside a number of "Group B" rally cars for an element of true real-world playability. 15 different classes are available, with a multitude of racing environments based on famous courses from all around the world.
