DiRT Rally 2.0 Looks at Stage Degradation and Tyre Choice

By Rebecca Smith, 1 month ago
If you've purchased the Deluxe Edition of DiRT Rally 2.0, you'll already have your hands on the title. If not, you'll have to wait until next week, and in the meantime, Codemasters has released a couple of new videos in their Dev Insight series to tide players over for the last four days of waiting.

The first video focuses on stage degradation. The surface of each stage will degrade as the race goes on, through running order and inclement weather. The video explains how both of these factors will make a difference to your race, because it doesn't matter of you've driven that same stretch multiple times, it will feel like a different race every time.


The second video focuses on tyre choice. It's a new feature for the franchise and the developers explain just how much of a part the right tyres have when creating the perfect rally strategy.


You can feel the effects of both of these factors for yourself when DiRT Rally 2.0 is released on February 26th... unless you have the Deluxe Edition, of course, so you can try them right now.

We've got the full list of DiRT Rally 2.0 achievements - check the list for guides to unlocking them.
