DiRT Showdown Dated

By Mark Delaney, 5 years ago
Codemasters dropped a news bomb on us today with plenty of new info surrounding their wreck-promoting racing game, https://www.trueachievements.com/DiRT-Showdown-xbox-360.htm. First of all a demo for the next in the DiRT series will hit the marketplace in just a few weeks -- May 1st.

Also announced is the beginning of the all-new Codemasters racing hub for gamers, called RaceNet. Think of it as a stat-tracker (like Battlelog or CoD: ELITE ) for your racing career across Codemasters' racing library. The service will launch in beta the same day as the demo. Many more details are promised to come soon, but haven't been revealed for now.

Then, a few weeks after that, you'll be able to get behind the wheel of the retail release at the end of May. In celebration of that announcement, the developers have released this new gameplay video. In it, you'll see exactly why this isn't just DiRT 4.



If you need just a bit more of a racing fix, this trio of screens may help. They also come from the Hoonigan gameplay.

Look for all of these DiRTy features next month and look for the game itself on May 25th.
