DiRT Rally captures the essence of what makes rally unique – that sense of trying to remain in control of your emotions, as you hurtle along at breakneck speed, aiming to squeeze everything out of your car whilst knowing that one crash could irreparably harm your stage time.
Dirt Rally is a racing video game developed and published by Codemasters for Microsoft Windows. An early access version of the game was released on 27 April 2015, via digital distribution service Steam. Full version game was released on 7 December 2015.The launch trailerfor the game announced PlayStation 4, Xbox One and physical PC DVD versions to be launched on 5 April 2016.
Dirrt Rally is £28.04 on Steam. The patch notes for that launch update also include shiny newness like Steam Workshop support for car setup and haptic feedback, for folks who are happy to let others fine-tune their rides. Anywho, here’s what Codies say about the new Swedish stages:
“These snow-filled stages are known for their snow banks and Codemasters has pioneered new soft edge tech that simulates the density of snow. As a result, players can now lean on the snow banks when pushing for those stage records.”
Soft edges. Very good. Very safe. Health and safety and all that, yeah?
A PC retail release is also coming on April 5th, launching alongside console versions. I’d be surprised if that’s much more than a pretty DVD to accompany a Steam key, mind.
