Dirt 3 Summary
Twitch-reaction controls, Gymkhana, Particle Effects & You in our DiRT 3 Review.
The official GRID YouTube channel has added an 18 second teaser trailer which features mostly nothing but a few streaking red lights that dart across the screen. It's entitled 'Brace Yourselves... Racing Is Coming'.
Codemasters has been teasing something new is on the way for GRID and/or DiRT, and now we appear to have a date for the next GRID racer to be unveiled: April 22nd.
Codemasters is once again teasing new game project announcements and remark it's "like the calm before the storm this week," while developers are "getting builds ready," and the PR staff prep their 'PR stuff'.
New DiRT and GRID titles have been teased for a while by Codemasters and it seems they're almost ready to show something. There's also more Formula One on the way.
This week's Humble savings are brought to you by Codemasters. Up for grabs for over $1 is the original Overlord and expansion, Operation Flashpoint Red River and Dragon Rising, and Rise of the Argonauts.
Pay $6 or more and you also get DiRT Showdown and DiRT 3, along with Overlord II. It should be noted that Codemasters is working to remove GFWL from DiRT 3.
While Microsoft's Games for Windows Live client is in its death rows there are many futures left uncertain, like all those GFWL infested games still out there. What becomes of them once the beast is slain?
A list has been compiled by Joystiq on what's happening with various titles by publishers and studios. The future is bright for some, not so blinding for others.
Another title joins the growing community of former Games for Windows Live titles as Codemasters confirms DiRT 3 is to lose its Games for Windows Live
demon seed integration, but it's unlikely to happen in 2013.
Instead DiRT 3 is going full throttle into the relative safe haven of Steamworks. There are "no current plans" to bring the racer to GOG.com, home of the DRM-free PC gamer tribe.
