Dirt Rally development update – Winter Wonderland
Codemasters are preparing to release the Winter Wonderland update for their Dirt Rally title. If the rumours are correct we will see the Steam update appear somewhere next week.
The Winter Wonderland update pack will let you rally the snowy forests of Sweden and will be including two new cars. The Volkswagen Polo Rally and the Hyundai Rally will be part of the update, where both cars will compete in the 2010s class.
To give users without the necessary credits a chance to test the cars straight away, Codemasters will include Daily Events that feature the cars during the entire week.
To thank all the Early Acces supporters, Codemasters has granted the Founder status to every person that bought and played the game so far this year. The Founder status will be marked with a crown on the leaderboards, both in the game and on DiRTGame.com. All the members will receive a custom DiRT Rally livery on their 1995 Subaru Impreza.
A selection of Dirt Rally members who have been very active on the social media channels have received a DiRT VIP status and therefore, will see a VIP icon appear next to your name in the leaderboard. These members will also receive three unique liveries for one car in each discipline in the game.
As far as the official release date of Dirt Rally is concerned, things are getting a little confusing. Codemasters initially mentioned that the full launch of the game was scheduled for November or December this year. At this time, the Codemasters development teams hinted that the Early Acces version is here to stay for at least a few weeks.
