The season is also meant to celebrate the 2019 FIA World Rallycross Chapionship with 2019 season versions of cars coming to the game.

Once the seasons are available, players will be able to purchase them or individual pieces of content on whatever platform they happen to be playing on. If you're playing on Xbox One, the Xbox One X version of the game plays in native 4K resolution. You also have the option to play in 1080p if you wish, but you'll also get some graphical improvements to boot.
