DiRT 4 announced for June release

The rally fans had their game of choice in DiRT Rally, thanks to a totally new approach to the DiRT series by Codemasters, which delivered a level of simulation not seen in recent titles of the genre. But now Codies is preparing another title and they expect to take the awesomeness of DiRT Rally and previous DiRT titles to the next level in a single game with DiRT 4.

The announcement of the new game was made this Thursday (26) afternoon, with release expected for this June on PC, Playstation 4 and Xbox One, as developers guarantee enhanced focus in the thrill aspect, that limit that could make you faster or make you roll down the hill.

The rally part will continue featuring different classes as ever but some new machines will appear, with the Ford Fiesta R5 being the flagship car, indicating that the popular R5 class will join the roster, expected to have some nice cars in the other previously featured classes, like the Subaru Impreza NR4 and the Mitsubishi Lancer Evo IV.

The rallycross section will be centered in official FIA World Rallycross Championship content, but claims were answered and the RX2 class and the Olsbergs MSE Supercar Lites machine will appear with official liveries included, and the road to World RX will also feature Crosskarts, which also are quite popular. It isn't confirmed if the Super 1600 class will return, but most of the rallycross ladder will be there.

Coming from DiRT 3 is the returning 'Landrush' mode, with races with buggies and trophy trucks in locations like Mexico and California, and also the 'Joyride' mode where you can give yourself a free drive. But what seems to have raised a lot of eyebrows is the announced 'Your Stage' feature, where you can create your routes with determined parameters, and not only you will be able to play it on DiRT 4, but you will be able to share your tracks with the community for everyone to enjoy.

According with sources who tested DiRT 4 in the announcement event, the mode selection will be right at the start of the game, where you can select between 'Gamer' and 'Simulation' physics.
