DiRT 3 Is Looking Good

Changeable weather is just one of the new features in DiRT 3

Codemasters, the development team behind such game series as TOCA and Race Driver (including Grid) have released a new gameplay trailer for their upcoming racer DiRT 3, and it’s looking good.  Several new features have been showcased including old favourites rallying and rally cross, but new features include Gymkhana (time/speed events involving weaving through cones, tyres, barrels etc), weather conditions that include snow and day/night cycles and a number of new racing locations.

In what has no doubt been devised to persuade people to pre-order the game rather than buy pre-owned as Codemasters won’t see any money on pre-owed sales, people who do pre-order DiRT 3 from selected retailers will receive a special ‘Superteam Pack’ which consists of the following events and cars:

Bonus Events
Rockstar Superstars — Rockstar Transworld Clash
Oakley Superstars – Oakley Pro Invitational
Nixon Superstars – Nixon Gold Series
Monster Superstars – Monster Energy All Star Showdown

Texaco Racing Team
Ford Fiesta Open Class
Opel Manta 400
Monster Sport SX4 Hillclimb Special
Stadium Truck

Brembo Racing Team
Fiat 131 Abarth
Toyota Tacoma
Abarth Grande Punto S2000
Stadium Buggy

Team Yokohama
Lancia Delta HF Integrale
Renault Alpine A110 1600S
Mitsubishi Lancer Evo X JUN

Mobil 1 Performance Team
Audi Sport Quattro Rallye
Ford RS200 RallyX
VW Race Touareg 2

Not a bad incentive seeing as the Superteam Pack will probably cost quite a lot to buy separately, and while the aforementioned selected retailers haven’t been selected yet it does seem like Gamestop in the United States will be.  I’ll update this post when I know more.

DiRT 3 is scheduled to be released worldwide on May 24th, 2011 on Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and PC.  And now for the trailer:
