One of the questions that the fans of the DiRT Rally game were doing to themselves as well to Codemasters is about extra content to come to the game after the 1.0 version, released in PC physical media and on digital download by Codies itself and Steam last December. These doubts were solved as the successful off-road title will receive extra content along with the console release on April 5th.
On the same time, the owners of the game on Playstation 4, XBOX One and PC will receive an extra set of cars and a new track for the hillclimb discipline, along with some other good things for the console users who pre-ordered the game.
The additions in the rally cars will be the first world rally champion, the Alpine A110 and the Renault 5 Turbo, another icon from the Group B era.
The hillclimb fans will have the honor to drive the record-breaking monster Peugeot 208 T16, which is the current Pikes Peak International Hillclimb record holder by a mile. Along with it comes the only addition in terms of places, as the Pikes Peak road loses all the tarmac and comes in a full gravel version.
The discipline that received the largest part of the new content was rallycross as two new classes will be brought to the game, the Super 1600 with three models, the Renault Clio S1600, the Peugeot 207 S1600 and the Opel Corsa S1600, and a classic Mini class, with the iconic little cars battling each other for track domination.
And Codemasters also thought in the newcomers, as not everyone that starts playing DiRT Rally knows a thing or two about rallying, so tutorial videos can explain most of the basic of it so you won't feel lost and sad for always going right into a ditch, a tree or a cliff.
Other thing that will bring a lot of hype to DiRT Rally is a bunch of iconic Colin McRae liveries, letting the user enter in the role of the most famous rally driver of all time, like with the 555-liveried Subaru Impreza.
The benefits for the console guys don't stop: pre-ordering the Legend Edition, a fully upgraded Mini Cooper S with a special livery and a team engineer with perks will be available. A steelbook and driver's guide will also be available for pre-order if you want some collectibles.
