A new video has been released for DiRT Showdown on their website www.dirtgame.com. The video shows many of the different locations available in the game and how their environments will impact gamplay such as snow in Aspen, Colorado, and mud in Michigan. The trailer also shows that the audience watching races will depart from typical rally style games with fans spread throughout the course on the edges of the road and will in stead consist of spring break style raves complete with hot air balloons and theme parks. The press release for the new video is below.
Get the lowdown on DiRT® Showdown™’s locales as cars speed through the snow, smash through city streets and burn it up in the desert in the latest gameplay video now playing at www.dirtgame.com. Capturing DiRT Showdown’s raucous racing and turbo-charged party atmosphere, the ‘Race Hard, Party Hard’ video showcases just some of the events on the Showdown Tour, revealing how each location becomes a chaotic festival of speed on track and a hedonistic party for thousands of fans off it.
DiRT Showdown is set to race into retail on May 25th*, but players can experience the game today by downloading the demo, which features a full-impact solo race and a bone-jarring eight player online demolition derby event from Xbox Live Marketplace, PlayStation Network and Steam on PC.
Since the demo’s launch, players have:
• Destroyed two million cars in crashes.
• Driven far enough to travel around the world 100 times.
• Consumed enough oil to make five returns trips to the moon.
These impressive results were recorded by RaceNet, the free new online extension for Codemasters Racing games that tracks and rewards player achievements, (See Notes).
DiRT Showdown will deliver a new world of competitive and combative racing as players race, crash and hoon their way to ‘Showdown’ finals on a chaotic tour of motorised mayhem when it launches May 25th† for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft®, PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system and PC.
