DiRT Rally Summary
Codemasters has released a new dev diary that discusses the game's tenure on Steam Early Access, and how they used the feedback from the dedicated DiRT community to shape the game into a racer that both fans and newcomers would enjoy, along with paying homage to its origins as Colin McRae: DiRT; the game dropped the license after the famed racer passed away unexpectedly.
The developers went on to explain they wanted to focus on the more dangerous aspects of rally. “We started from the ground up, looking at what we needed to do with the tracks, how we needed to change the cars to make sure that they drove properly within them and getting that feeling right; the sense of flowing through a stage and of impending doom if you go off the road," explained lead designer Paul Coleman. "All of that stuff really feeds into what it is to be a rally driver and the mindset that you approach the stages with.”
