Codemasters and Deep Silver have announced the arrival of DiRT Rally. Available now on Steam, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows PC. Seven extra cars have been added to the game for both PC and console players. Check out the launch trailer here and the official press release below.
Today, console players are welcomed into the vibrant DiRT Rally community and invited to join the hundreds of thousands of players on PC and one of the highest rated racing games of all time.
DiRT Rally is the most authentic and thrilling rally game ever made. It perfectly captures that white knuckle feeling of racing on the edge at breakneck speed, knowing that one crash could irreparably harm your stage time.
Every stage tests you differently, as you race on the edge of control across snow, ice, tarmac and dirt and tackle a variety of weather types. As the car suffers attrition and stages string together, your dedicated rally team tries to keep you competitive and each rally becomes a marathon-like test of concentration and skill.
DiRT Rally includes officially licensed FIA World Rallycross content, allowing you to experience the breathless, high-speed thrills of some of the world’s fastest off-road cars as you trade paint with other drivers at some of the series’ best-loved circuits, in both single player and high-intensity multiplayer races.
DiRT Rally also features online league support and daily, weekly and monthly challenges that allow players to test themselves against the best drivers in the world and claim bragging rights as well as in-game currency.
Console and PC players can now enjoy substantial new additions to the game. New Classic Mini and Super 1600 series will introduce the thrills of rallycross racing from the start of the game and 21 advanced rally driving video guides will help gamers maximize their rallying performance. Players will be able to drive the vintage full gravel surface at Pikes Peak for the first time in the game and three of Colin McRae’s most iconic liveries will enable them to relive the exploits of a legendary rally champion.
Fans who pre-ordered will get the day one DLC unlock that sports a limited run DiRT Rally Legend Edition, which includes both the Fully Loaded MINI Pack and Fully Loaded Ford Pack, which also unlocks and fully upgrades the MINI Cooper S and Ford Escort MK2 from the start of the game, gives an exclusive livery for the cars and provides a unique team mechanic with perks.
Gamers who pre-ordered the digital edition of DiRT Rally will receive both the Fully Loaded Rallycross Pack, which unlocks the Mini Classic Rallycross and provides the same benefits as the other packs.
The DiRT team have also added seven extra cars to the game:
- Peugeot 208 T16 Pikes Peak

- Renault Alpine A110
- Opel Corsa Super 1600
- Peugeot 207 S1600
