DiRT 4 Gets A New Rallycross Trailer

DiRT 4 saw a new trailer drop this week, and this time showcasing the Rallycross feature in the game. Rallycross if you weren't aware is thrilling multicar, circuit racing on mixed surfaces made up of both dirt and asphalt. The short, quick-fire races take four to six laps and each car must complete at least one ‘Joker Lap’ which is longer than the traditional lap leading to tactical, enthralling wheel-to-wheel racing. Drivers compete in four qualifying races before the top drivers make the semi finals and final. The supercar class in the FIA World Rallycross Championship are 600bhp beasts that accelerate from 0-60mph in under 2 seconds – faster than a Formula One car. If you have played the previous DiRT Rally then you will be aware of the Rallycross areas of the game, but in DiRT 4 Co...

Dirt 4 – Announced And Released This Year

Codemasters are releasing Dirt 4 this coming June on PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 and its looking amazing. As someone who spend a lot of hours playing Dirt Rally and still can not get to grips with the cars I have to admit that the announcement of this is filling me with warm tingly feelings. The one thing that dissapointed me about Dirt Rally was the lack of content. A handful of cars and a splattering of tracks just seemed disappointing and then the reveal that no DLC would be added to the game at a later date lowered my spirits even more. But lo and behold Codemasters have come back at us with Dirt 4, a fully fledged sequel to Dirt 3 (obviously) and as such it carries the official FIA World Rallycross Championship license, including settings such as Lohéac Bretagne, Hell,...
