Codemasters and Koch Media have announced that off-road rally game, Dirt 4, will be released this summer.
The game follows in the muddy tracks of 2016’s well-received Dirt Rally, and will come to Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Windows PC.
Building from Codemaster’s Colin McRae Rally series, Dirt 4 continues the British studio’s efforts to provide an authentic but accessible rally racing experience. As the official game of the FIA World Rallycross Championship it takes in races from all corners of the globe, including famous locations like Montalegre, Lohéac Bretagne, and Lydden Hill, among others.
The game will feature over 50 vehicles from big name manufacturers such as Audi, Ford, Mitsubishi and Subaru, as well as Pro Buggies and Crosskarts to use in the game’s new Landrush mode.
It’s a comprehensive package that also includes customisable vehicle, track and weather conditions, a Rally School, and a full-featured career mode that covers everything from gaining sponsorship to building a team.
The game’s online features include daily, weekly and month-long challenges in which you can compete against friends or other racers from around the world, plus there’s a wide range of leagues and tournaments to join and compete in.
The most interesting new addition is the new rally route creation tool, ‘Your Stage’. The tool allows players to create a near-infinite number of courses that can be shared online, with bragging rights on offer for the fastest times.
If I cared about rally games Dirt 4 sounds like it would be the best thing ever. I don’t much care, but it still sounds pretty enticing, I must admit.
Dirt 4 will be released on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on June 9, 2017.
We hate to ask, but...
Thumbsticks has a couple of goals. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough to meet those goals! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
