Today Codemasters announced that a sequel to DiRT Rally is in the works and set to release early next year.
A Deluxe Edition will be made available which includes the first two seasons of post-launch content, each with three locations providing a mix of both rally and rallycross, and five early vehicle unlocks (Ford Escort MkII, Lancia Stratos, Subaru Impreza 1995, AUDI Sport quattro S1 E2 and Ford Fiesta OMSE SuperCar Lite). The Deluxe Edition will allow players to dive in four days early and also includes upgraded starter cars for My Team, in-game bonuses and high reward events. More details on the game's seasons will be revealed soon.
As an additional bonus, pre-orders of any edition will grant access to the Porsche 911 RGT Rally Spec.
“We are thrilled to finally be able to talk about DiRT Rally 2.0,” said Ross Gowing, Chief Games Designer at Codemasters.
“Rally is incredibly important to Codemasters and the entire team is absolutely dedicated to creating the most authentic experience possible in a game.
“Our passionate, knowledgeable community helped to make DiRT Rally a special title. We have been working with a selection of that community alongside a roster of real world rally drivers to ensure that we meet their high standards. We are not afraid to make a challenging game. Driving a rally car down a stage is not easy and we want players to experience that same adrenaline rush from driving on the edge.”
DiRT Rally 2.0 releases worldwide on 26 February.
