DiRT Rally World RX World Rallycross preview video
The Codemasters team visited round 6 of the World Rallycross championship in Höljes Sweden where they announced their long-term partnership between Dirt Rally and the FIA World Rallycross Championship.
The Codemasters developers team had the chance to ask the RX drivers for some vital feedback and took a simulator rig with them so the Championship’s top drivers could have a go at the Rallycross tracks in progress.
During the video, we can watch some in-game footage of the rallycross tracks and virtual versions of the 600bhp RX Supercars cars for Dirt Rally that are being worked on as we speak.
DiRT Rally’s™ Lead Designer, Paul Coleman, explained: “From the outset we wanted DiRT Rally™ to be the ultimate off-road racer and to fulfil that vision we knew we had to include World RX. Since the launch in Early Access back in April we have continued to add new, diverse content to the game and World RX will add another dimension that will challenge even the most experienced players.”
“Codemasters have done a brilliant job – the detail is very realistic and not far from real life,” explained Team Volkswagen Sweden’s Johan Kristoffersson, who is currently second in the overall World RX drivers’ standings. “As drivers, we always want to change the smallest things on our cars, but this version is very good. There are just a couple of tweaks that need to be made and then I think it will be just like driving the real thing. It’s by far the best rallycross game I have played.”
Martin Anayi, World RX Managing Director for IMG, concluded: “It was great to have the Codemasters team with us in Holjes over the weekend, which allowed us to showcase our new joint game venture to over 40,000 fans. Codemasters has worked exceptionally hard to get this project off the ground and it’s been encouraging to hear such positive feedback from our drivers after they had test-driven the game. We are very excited about our new collaboration with Codemasters and look forward to working with the team more closely to help develop the game further.”
Codemasters DiRT Rally marks the return to a more authentic and dangerous off-road racing experience delivering free new content every month, plus a continuous stream of gameplay improvements. Dirt Rally is available on the dedicated official Steam page.
