Codemasters today released the latest trailer for DiRT 4 which showcases the game’s incredible rallycross content across various classes and circuits. But most importantly, this trailer shows off the beauty that is the Subaru WRX. It may look exactly like an Impreza – and indeed it is built on the same platform as the regular sedan – but the WRX is a rallycross staple. And is a personal favorite of mine. Granted, if I were going to buy a car with a Subaru Boxer engine, the BRZ is an easy sell, but the WRX is a flagship car for a reason.
The new trailer comes with a whole bunch of random information in it’s description, which reads in full:
DiRT 4 is the official game of the FIA World Rallycross championship and the new gameplay trailer shows Supercars racing at Lohéac Bretagne, Montalegre, Lydden Hill, Hell and Holjes. In addition to the Supercar class, DiRT 4 also has rallycross racing in RX2, Super 1600s, Group B classics and crosskarts making it a fully fledged rallycross experience.
Developed in consultation from two time FIA World Rallycross Champion, Petter Solberg, the rallycross handling in DiRT 4 has undergone a complete overhaul to ensure it is as close to the real thing as possible.
Rallycross is thrilling multicar, circuit racing on mixed surfaces made up of both dirt and asphalt. The short, quick-fire races take four to six laps and each car must complete at least one ‘Joker Lap’ which is longer than the traditional lap leading to tactical, enthralling wheel-to-wheel racing. Drivers compete in four qualifying races before the top drivers make the semi finals and final. The supercar class in the FIA World Rallycross Championship are 600bhp beasts that accelerate from 0-60mph in under 2 seconds – faster than a Formula One car.
But let’s not kid ourselves. You’re here for one reason, and that is the video right below. DiRT 4 will release on June 9th.
