Deep Silver has released a new gameplay video for Codemasters’ DiRT Rally 2.0. World RX in Motion shows off the pace, intensity and thrill of playing through FIA World Rallycross Championship events.
DiRT Rally 2.0 will launch with eight tracks from the 2018 FIA World Rallycross Championship, including new locations to the series Mettet, Silverstone and Circuit de Barcelona – Catalunya. Four different classes of rallycross will be available at launch in DiRT Rally 2.0: the official FIA World Rallycross Championship Supercars, RX2, RX Super 1600s, and RX Crosskarts. New Supercars to the DiRT Rally franchise include the GCKompetition World Rallycross team’s Prodrive-built Renault Megane RS RX, the Audi S1 EKS RX quattro, and 2018 FIA World Rallycross Champion Johan Kristofferson’s PSRX Volkswagen Polo R Supercar.
In addition to contending with other vehicles, the Joker Lap, and the vastly improved damage system, players will also be challenged by variable weather conditions over the course of a rallycross weekend. New and enhanced visual effects and significant environmental improvements also bring an uplifted visual package to DiRT Rally 2.0
Paul Bellamy, Senior Vice President of IMG Motorsports, the promoters of the FIA World Rallycross Championship, said:
“The partnership with Codemasters gives us the chance to inspire the next generation of World RX drivers through our engagement with Codemasters’ vast gaming community.
With the release of DiRT Rally 2.0, which features eight FIA World Rallycross tracks, we are able to provide players with more world-class rallycross content than ever before.
The innovations Codemasters have brought to the game through enhanced visual effects and the introduction of weather conditions, and the Joker Lap, really does put fans firmly at the heart of the action.”
Jonathan Bunney, SVP of Publishing at Codemasters said:
“Working so closely with IMG and World Rallycross has enabled us to create our most accurate World Rallycross experience. Working with official reference data from tracks, having great relationships with race teams and close access to the incredibly talented drivers gives us amazing insight into this really exciting and accessible sport. We are extremely pleased to have eight of the World Rallycross tracks in the game, with more to come in the post launch service.”
DiRT Rally 2.0, including officially licensed content of the FIA World Rallycross Championship presented by Monster Energy, will launch on the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, the Xbox One family of devices including Xbox One X and Windows PC via Steam on Feb. 26, 2019.
