Three days ago, Codemasters released a first video trailer of their upcoming Colin McRae DiRT 3 title that is scheduled to be released in 2011 for the PC, Xbox 360 and Playstation 3.
Codemasters’ own Helios confirmed right here on VirtualR that the third part of the DiRT franchise will be offering much more traditional-style rallying than its predecessors.
This is backed up by chief game designer Matt Horsman who recently revealed some details on DiRT 3 to EDGE Magazine. DiRT 3 will feature a mix of modern and classical rally cars that can be used in an all-new career mode. Players start out as privateer driver in 90s rally machinery and have to work their way up the ladder.
The cars can be raced on over 100 stages, ranging from Norway to Africa, including the site of the most famous rally of them all – Monte Carlo. DiRT 3 will be featuring a dynamic weather system including snow & ice, players will be able to upload their most spectacular replays straight to Youtube.
Using the trusted EGO-engine, Colin McRae DiRT 3 will be released in 2011 for the PC and consoles, following the successful second edition of the franchise that sold over 1.7 million copies.
