I was going to post this yesterday, but didn’t have enough time. Anyways, yesterday saw the release of Codemasters and Deep Silvers new rally sim, DiRT Rally on the PlayStation 4. This is a game that was already out on PC and on of the highest rated racing games of all time. DiRT Rally includes officially licensed FIA World Rallycross content, real locations, and real world rally cars.
Look for DiRT Rally in the PlayStation Store. We have a copy here so look for a full review from us soon as well.
Larkspur, Calif., April 5, 2016 – Codemasters and Deep Silver today announced that the BAFTA-nominated DiRT Rally® is now available for PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system and Xbox One. The launch trailer for the game is available to watch now at youtube.com/dirtgame.
Today, console players are welcomed into the vibrant DiRT Rally community and invited to join the hundreds of thousands of players on PC and one of the highest rated racing games of all time.
DiRT Rally is the most authentic and thrilling rally game ever made. It perfectly captures that white knuckle feeling of racing on the edge at breakneck speed, knowing that one crash could irreparably harm your stage time.
Every stage tests you differently, as you race on the edge of control across snow, ice, tarmac and dirt and tackle a variety of weather types. As the car suffers attrition and stages string together, your dedicated rally team tries to keep you competitive and each rally becomes a marathon-like test of concentration and skill.
DiRT Rally includes officially licensed FIA World Rallycross content, allowing you to experience the breathless, high-speed thrills of some of the world’s fastest off-road cars as you trade paint with other drivers at some of the series’ best-loved circuits, in both single player and high-intensity multiplayer races. DiRT Rally also features online league support and daily, weekly and monthly challenges that allow players to test themselves against the best drivers in the world and claim bragging rights as well as in-game currency.
Console and PC players can now enjoy substantial new additions to the game. New Classic Mini and Super 1600 series will introduce the thrills of rallycross racing from the start of the game and 21 advanced rally driving video guides will help gamers maximize their rallying performance. Players will be able to drive the vintage full gravel surface at Pikes Peak for the first time in the game and three of Colin McRae’s most iconic liveries will enable them to relive the exploits of a legendary rally champion.
Fans who pre-ordered will get the day one DLC unlock that sports a limited run DiRT Rally Legend Edition, which includes both the Fully Loaded MINI Pack and Fully Loaded Ford Pack, which also unlocks and fully upgrades the MINI Cooper S and Ford Escort MK2 from the start of the game, gives an exclusive livery for the cars and provides a unique team mechanic with perks.
Gamers who pre-ordered the digital edition of DiRT Rally will receive both the Fully Loaded Rallycross Pack, which unlocks the Mini Classic Rallycross and provides the same benefits as the other packs.
The DiRT team have also added seven extra cars to the game:
• Peugeot 208 T16 Pikes Peak
• Renault 5 Turbo
• Renault Alpine A110
• Opel Corsa Super 1600
• Peugeot 207 S1600
• Renault Clio S1600

“We’re delighted to be able to welcome PS4 and Xbox One players to the DiRT Rally community,” said Paul Coleman, chief games designer. “We’ve been overwhelmed by the enthusiasm for the game our fans have shown us ever since we first revealed it and today marks the realization of our vision to bring the game to as many players as possible. Welcome on board and we hope you enjoy playing as much as we’ve enjoyed making it!”
