DiRT 3 – New Previews + Physics Developer Interview

Codemasters has released new preview material of their upcoming DiRT 3 rally title for the PC and gaming consoles, showing us some new cars that will be included in the title.

Furthermore, XG247 has released a new developer video interview, including some new gameplay-footage as the developer talk about their access to real life vehicle data and driver feedback. We also get to check out the devs enjoying themselves at a rally school to get some first hand physics experience.

Using the trusted EGO-engine, 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. The title will feature over 50 cars that can be raced on over 100 stages that make use of a dynamic weather system including snow and ice.

Update: A second video with pure gameplay footage has been added.

    To me it still looks as though (as good as the Audi Quattro is) it’s driving at impossible speeds.

    That’s always bugged me about all the CM titles. Reduced physics so gamers can have increased speeds, whereby they should be fighting for grip and to stay in control rather than pulling the biggest drift around every corner.

  • Ross Siggers

    Already looks better than WRC2010 imho…

  • Rolands Svētiņš

    Looks and sounds amazing, but speeds are a little too high. They got full physics pack to make a good rally simulation, but the main thing what stops them are people, who will argue about hard control.

  • stabiz

    Yep, it looks to have tarmac grip on gravel.

  • Jux

    The track is wiiidee.

  • grave2000ca

    I agree, the first thing that I noticed was the extra wide 4 lane highway dirt track…

  • Renagade

    Rally is about spectacular high speed cornering and drift … so if you want to sell a ton of copy … you let the casual gamer able to do those without any effort … its not about knowing how to do it, its i want to do it NOW on my first race. So dirt is a fun game where you dont have to do any effort to be good just turn the steering right on a right turn and you can be the best … and dont forget to crash in everyone in the first corner … you have some chance to finish first if you dont do three 360 before you can continu your race … you car will look like demo derby one, but its not like you can’t finish the race with the 2 front wheel mount on your door.

  • Ross Siggers

    Maybe here, but having played DiRT 1 and 2 the tracks tend to be a fairly good width, if not exactly ‘narrow’

  • retiisi

    Actually it looks much better than WRC 2010. Milieu seems to be very accurate and believable and even if roads are bit wide those are still looking good enough imo. Maybe CM is going for right direction this time.

  • This is actually looking quite good IMHO. I’m surprised!

  • brumbrum

    even though dirt doesn’t have much to do with a sim i absolutely loved Dirt 2 on my ps3. Just sit back, controller in my hands and just enjoying the awesome sound of that 350Z on a rallycross track. I really hope this one is going to be the same, it’s just nice to have something like that next to all the (why so :P) serious simracing.

    And oh, Gymkhana? finally, i found it kinda strange that Dirt 2 was so focused on ken block and it didn’t have gykmhana, but now that it has it’s highly likely to be the best Dirt yet. 😀

  • RKipker

    Yeah, but in game some are fine!  It’s the too fast for realistic and physics!  However, I’m not a 100% Sim Man for rally games anyway!

    I want more Trophy Trucks! 

  • scca1981

    I enjoyed Dirt 2 and I have no doubt i’ll enjoy this one.  Look forward to it.

  • Pascal

    on CM forum, They says, than this track is for trailbazer, with many bg cars on track, and here is in video because, these track is done, an They want show it.

  • marcel82

    if that’s actual “gameplay”, this will be a very disorienting game, if you ask me

  • mariojsilva46

    the game looks like it’s going in the right way,I’m so wished to see the final product..

  • mariojsilva46

    I am a big fan of dirty…and so far everything I saw in this videos is very cool

  • Scuderia Ecosse

    I didn’t see any porn in the video…

  • Schirock

    That sound of the quattro is really really good! i will enjoy this, just as i did with 1 and 2.
    2 is very fun to play online (ps3)

    gotta agree with BRUM BRUM

  • NitroStar

    Gonna be great. Dirt 2 is amazingly beautiful on a 42″ HDTV on PC. Fun to drive. Just add more cars and tracks and some different game play and it’ll be cool. Hope they sell it in a boxed version for PC. I sure don’t like having the Steam version of F1 2010. I like to collect the Factory boxes of all my racing titles.

  • Silly(c)One

    True, but in order to win on higher skill levels (savage, extreme), you definitely need some practice…
    That’s what I love about DiRT2, if you want just a quick fun, set the level to casual, but if you want some serious sport, it’s also possible in savage or extreme modes.

    wau!
