DiRT Rally shows off polished physics in new gameplay trailer

February promises to be an interesting old month for game releases, but what of April? Well, for rally enthusiasts look no further, because DiRT Rally is finally revving up for its official release.

Developed by motorsport game legends Codemasters alongside Koch Media, the two companies have released a new PC gameplay trailer, which showcases the title’s motion and destruction physics, alongside the some of the current cars available.

And more content promises to be added alongside Steam’s Early Access preview.

“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 maximise their rallying performance,” notes the press release.

“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.”

Speaking of Colin McRae, a Legendary Edition of the title will include a documentary focusing on the iconic Scot’s life and career.

It’s the third rally title we’ve seen in the past six months, with WRC5 debuting late last year, and Sebastien Loeb Rally EVO hitting circuits last week. But DiRT Rally is definitely the game harbouring the most hype of the three.

It will officially launch on PC (DVD), PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on 5 April 2016. But until then, enjoy some flying mud, snow and errant bodywork in the trailer below.
