The announcement of DiRT 4 came out of nowhere. As did our own preview! But as we inch closer to the fast-approaching official release, it's time to learn more about how DiRT 4 has changed since that surprised announcement.
Due to release within the next few weeks between June 6-9, Codemasters have released a brand new trailer onto YouTube showcasing multiple circuits and vehicle classes.
Though fan reaction to past DiRT games have been typically strong, Codemasters pulled in two time FIA World Rallycross Champion Petter Solberg to aid in the creation process. Because of this, DiRT 4 is said to be a 'complete overhaul' of past systems to create something that is "as close to the real thing as possible."
'Rallycross' is the term used to name this particular sport in which multiple cars storm across mixed-surface circuits built up with both asphalt and dirt. The cars typically used in these activities are 600bhp machines capable of reaching that sought-after 0-62mph push in under 2 seconds. These short-form races involve between 4-6 laps with a 'Joker Lap' adding the need for more strategic thinking.
In light of the newly announced Rallycross mode, DiRT 4 will launch with numerous others. Over 50 cars and 5 worldwide locations will play host to modes like Landrush, Joyride and DiRT Academy. Tuning, repairs and online interactions will play a major role alongside its expected Career mode. Check out the new trailer down below.
