Codemasters Releases DiRT Trailer Online With First Gameplay Video to Follow on Xbox Live Marketplace
Burbank, CA – Wednesday, March 28, 2007 – Strap yourself in for an incredible ride as Codemasters premieres the first trailer for DIRT™, now available to view and download at www.codemasters.com/dirt. ; Opening with death-defying cliff-edge cornering on Pikes Peak – one of the breathtaking all-new Hill Climb events in DiRT, the video trails the bump and grind of buggy racing, and also reveals Colin McRae’s very own prototype performance car, the R4, in a dramatic crash sequence.
Created using in-game vehicle and environmental models, this is just a first taste of the exhilaration DiRT promises to deliver when it launches in June for the Xbox 360™ video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and the PC. The PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system edition will follow shortly thereafter.
As much as the DiRT video teases some of the varied terrain that you’ll be racing through, the full game offers a massive assortment of courses, tracks, surfaces and visual styles. Terrain ranges from the narrow mountain roads of Spain and the twisting forest roads of UK, to the technical vineyard stages of Germany and the fast flowing turns of the hill climb racing in the U.S. DiRT also features full-blown off-road events in Italy, France, Germany, Japan and Australia.
Looking beyond the DiRT trailer, the first ‘in-game’ footage will premiere tomorrow, Thursday, March 29, 2007, as an exclusive download only available from Xbox Live® Marketplace.
Slap on your helmet and snap in that five-point harness because DiRT is coming! For the trailer and all the latest game information, be sure to sign up for mud splattering, gravel churning, handbrake yanking, off-road racing action online at: www.codemasters.com/dirt.
