Codemasters revealed today that DiRT Rally 2.0 is real and it will be out on February 26, 2019 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One (thankfully, it seems that the company’s recent dabble into console exclusivity with ONRUSH was just that and we’ll get this new title day and date with our console cousins).
Here’s a gorgeous announcement trailer that seems to have been specifically crafted in order to fully max out any driving fan’s hype meter.
This time around, we’ll get to virtually visit six rally locations around the world, racing on incredibly detailed hand crafted stages in a variety of real life cars. Codemasters also revealed that being the official game of the FIA World Rallycross Championship (presented by Monster Energy, because these things always need a big name sponsor), DiRT Rally 2.0 will also feature cars from the 2018 season as well as some official World Rallycross Championship circuits at launch.
Racing fans who pre-order DiRT Rally 2.0 will be rewarded with a Porsche 911 RGT Rally Spec, and those who decide to get their hands on the Deluxe Edition will also get access to the first two seasons of post-launch content, which include three locations and five early vehicle unlocks (Ford Escort MkII, Lancia Stratos, Subaru Impreza 1995, AUDI Sport quattro S1 E2 and Ford Fiesta OMSE SuperCar Lite). Aside from access to post-launch content, Deluxe Edition owners will also be able to play the game four days early, on February 22, 2019.
