A complete guide for DiRT 4.
DiRT 4 is out, and it may be the best game in Codemasters’ rallying series yet. As always, players can expect top class racing mechanics, loads of content, and a lot of great modes to mess around in. Series fans will find themselves comfortable with the game right away- it will actually probably be newcomers who feel a bit overwhelmed by the game.
If you count yourself among that number, never fear! We’re here to help you out. In this guide, we cover customization, custom courses, basic tips and tricks, and some Achievements/Trophies. Let’s get started right away, then.
BASIC TIPS AND TRICKS
Pay attention to your co-driver. DiRT 4 has some well designed courses, and you need to be looking for cues and turns, sure, but your co-driver will be calling out turns and obstacles in your path. Listen to him, he can give you some fair warning for stuff coming up ahead.
Don’t play nice. Motorsports aren’t about playing fair. If you see an opponent, nudge them off the track. Bump into them. Disrupt them and their momentum. Do anything you can to rattle them. Especially since they’ll be doing the same to you.
Learn the track. Knowing the track, knowing shortcuts, and knowing the best route to take can be extremely helpful, especially when it comes to…
The Joker Lap. This is one lap you must take in each rally, which is an alternate route designed to test your technique and increase your lap time. You get to decide when you want to take it, but you must take it. If leveraged right, you can use this to devastating advantage- if the regular route is crowded, for example, you can make a detour for the Joker Lap. Once on there, as long as you memorized the route, you should be able to make some good time.
Play Rallycross first. As mentioned before, there are a lot of modes in DiRT, but the first one you want to try, the standard, basic one, is Rallycross. Play it, find your footing, and then venture out.
CUSTOM STAGE CREATOR
DiRT 4 lets you make custom stages- which is every bit as awesome as it sounds. The tools you have at your disposal for creation and editing are very powerful, too. The video below walks you through the custom stage creator.
Of course, tracks aren’t the only things you can mess around with in DiRT 4– you can also customize your own vehicles in a thorough, and shockingly in depth, customization feature. This video below walks you through it.
