Dirt Rally 2.0 Looks Every Bit As Awesome As Its Predecessor Titles

Prefer your driving sim to take you off the virtual road and track? Codemasters makes some of the best. And it’s just released its latest.

Called Dirt Rally 2.0, it’s the sequel to the celebrated Dirt Rally game of 2015 and the latest in a series that stretches all the way back to 1998’s Colin McRae Rally. And from what we can see so far, it looks every bit as exciting as the dozen titles that have come before in what has become an iconic franchise for gamers and rally enthusiasts alike.

Rather than try to include every world rally stage around the world, Dirt Rally 2.0 encompasses hand-picked six locations, and – as the official game of the FIA World Rallycross Championship – another eight circuits from the 2018 calendar.

Further details are still forthcoming, but the developers at Codemasters and Deep Silver have already confirmed a handful of enticing machinery – including the Lancia Stratos, 1995 Subaru Impreza, Audi Sport Quattro S1 E2, Porsche 911 RGT, and Ford Escort MkII and Fiesta SuperCar Lite. And the video depicts even more, from the MkI VW Golf GTI to the latest rallycross equipment.

“We are thrilled to finally be able to talk about DiRT Rally 2.0,” said Codemasters’ chief games designer Ross Gowing. “Our passionate, knowledgeable community helped to make DiRT Rally a special title. We have been working with a selection of that community alongside a roster of real-world rally drivers to ensure that we meet their high standards.”

Dirt Rally 2.0 is set to launch on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Windows PC on February 26, 2019 – more than half a year away. But you can check out the preliminary footage now in the minute-long teaser clip below.
