DiRT Rally – World RX Multiplayer Update

DiRT Rally – World RX Multiplayer Update

Codemasters deployed the v.0.7 update for their DiRT Rally Steam Early Access version bringing multiplayer rallycross racing to the title.

You will now be able to go head to head with your online friends in an officially licensed FIA World Rallycross event. And it does not stop there. The update is packed with new features such as 3 new cars (DS3, MINI Countryman Rallycross, and Subaru WRX STI), Wet weather for all Rallycross tracks, and a spanking new Norwegian World RX track called Hell.

Besides the rather exciting new features, the update is also packed with a large set of fixes and improvements. Keeping in mind that this is actually an early access version, it is safe to say that the Codemasters Dirt Rally Development team is rapidly making progress, and might be delivering one of the most fun off-road titles in recent years.

We are already looking forward to next months update that is nicknamed “Finland” and promises to be the fastest and most exciting update yet.
