Which makes sense, the game is in Early Access.
DiRT Rally, which had a surprise announcement followed by an Early Access release followed on the same day a few days ago, has already gotten its first patch. The patch fine tunes and fixes up a number of problems that players have reported with the title so far.
The game is currently in Steam Early Access- meaning it is in active development, and in a pre-beta stage. This means that problems such as the ones highlighted by players are expected in this case. The dialog between players and developers in Early Access is supposed to be the entire point, so that the final product lives up to expectations, as long as the developer actually responds to concerns. Happily, Codemasters has done just that.
Here is a copy of their patch notes:
Audio Fix – We had a word with the co-driver about his attitude and he should now be talking to you if he wasn’t before.
Audio Fix – Resolved several instances of your co-driver speaking French for non French players (he’s been taking lessons and wanted to practice).
Online Fix – Fixed the Daily Online events so you will now be correctly rewarded for completing the event.
Championship Fix – Resolved instances of incorrect weather combinations being generated during later championship events… We blame global warming.
Known issues we’re working on
