The next DiRT game has been teased and speculated on for a long time, but now Codemasters has gone ahead and announced it officially- it’s called DiRT Rally, and it will be launching exclusively on PC. PC players can, in fact, play a very early build of the game right now, as it is already available on Steam Early Access. The game is launching on Early Access with 17 classic and current cars and 36 challenging stages spread across three very different real world environments, and the team will be adding regular free updates featuring more vehicles, locations and game modes as they build a new, exciting breed of focused and challenging off-road racing.
“Globally renowned for delivering realistic, yet fun, driving games, Codemasters is once more bringing its talent and experience to the world of rallying,” Codemasters said. “With DiRT Rally, the team wanted to take off-road racing to a new level of realism, so tore up its previous pace notes and completely rebuilt the physical simulation and driving models to truly capture the feeling of each individual car as it hurtles along a variety of surfaces in different conditions.
“Codemasters has captured the essence of what makes rally unique – that sense of trying to remain in control of your emotions, as you hurtle along dangerous, undulating roads at breakneck speed, aiming to squeeze everything out of your car whilst knowing that one crash could irreparably harm your stage time,” they continued. “It’s the ultimate test of a driver’s skill, and it’s the ultimate in high risk, high reward gameplay.”
DiRT Rally is anticipated to have an official launch soon, with the final product shaped by the feedback that the team gets from Early Access players. Stay tuned to GamingBolt for more coverage and information.
