Dirt 4 Is Coming to Fulfill All Your Virtual Rally Desires
Remember, video games are slightly cheaper than rally cars.
A new iteration of the Dirt rally racing video game series is coming to multiple consoles later in 2017, video game developer Codemasters announced Thursday. For those who aren't familiar with Dirt, it's the game that allows you to drive rally legends like the Ford RS200 or the Lancia Stratos over crests—or if you're like us, into trees—without having to concern yourself with breaking bones or your wallet.
Dirt 4 is coming to PS4, Xbox One, and Windows PCs in June 2017. Following the path of Dirt 3 and Dirt Rally, the new game will have 50 cars and give the user the ability to drive those cars in five different countries—Australia, Spain, Sweden, the United States, and Wales.
In the game, players can choose from several different play modes. Landrush lets gamers take on a small dirt track in Pro Buggies and Crosskarts, Joyride is primarily free-play, the FIA World Rallycross Championship mode which is pretty self-explanatory, and career mode. The new game also has a feature called Your Stage, which lets gamers create their own unique rally stages in a location of their choosing.
If you're a rallyist who can't wait to tackle the next thing the Dirt series has for you, well, you have until June to get your steering wheel and pedal setup rigged up.
