Hello all! At just gone 11am today, we released a patch for DiRT Rally. Here’s a rundown of the patch notes:
- Performance when Weather is set to Low should improve
- Leagues will now use a set of stock engineers. The option to use Career Engineers as an option will be going live on the website later today.
- There are various tweaks and fixes for the audio in Sweden.
- Rallycross tracks have been allocated more memory, to prevent cases where they forget to load.
New content coming to DiRT Rally!
Great news! We’re delighted to be able to confirm that there will be additional content coming to DiRT Rally on April 5th, 2016. To showcase this content we’ve put together a brand new trailer – which you can take a look at now at http://www.dirtgame.com.
In addition to the content we’ve added during DiRT Rally’s Steam Early Access programme, you’ll now be able to enjoy some pretty substantial new additions to the game when April arrives. New Classic Mini and Super 1600 series will introduce the thrills of rallycross from the beginning of the game, and we’ve added 21 advanced rally driving video guides which will help gamers maximise their rallying performance.
For the first time in the game, you’ll also be able to experience the vintage full gravel surface at Pikes Peak – and for the first time, you’ll be able to do in the iconic Peugeot 208 T16 Pikes Peak. Not only this, but three of Colin McRae’s most iconic liveries will join his Focus livery – allowing you to relive the exploits of a legendary rally champion and icon of motorsport. We’ve been waiting a long time to be able to bring you the Impreza livery – and the iconic yellow and blue design is now back at its spiritual home with DiRT Rally.
The DiRT team have also added seven extra cars, including some huge (and most-requested) fan favourites. The vehicles in question are…
– Peugeot 208 T16 Pikes Peak
– Renault 5 Turbo
– Renault Alpine A110
– Opel Corsa Super 1600
– Peugeot 207 S1600
– Renault Clio S1600
– Mini Classic Rallycross
DiRT Rally is available now on Steam, and this exciting additional content will be powersliding onto players’ desktops on April 5th 2016. Check out our launch video and our original post[blog.codemasters.com] for some high quality pictures and video of these new cars in action!
As ever, please stop by the Steam Community Hub, the forums, our Facebook page or on Twitter to let us know what you think of this new content.
And remember – if in doubt, flat-out!
