DiRT Rally 2.0

Codemasters has released a new trailer and set of screenshots for DiRT Rally 2.0 dubbed “Rally Through the Ages.”

Here is an overview of the trailer, via Codemasters:

The Alpine Renault A110 1600 S rallying through New Zealand represents the best of the 1960s, while the Ford Escort Mk II takes center stage in Australia to showcase what the 1970s had to offer. The Audi Sport quattro S1 E2 racing through the tarmac streets of Spain epitomises the Group B power of the 1980s, and New England provides the perfect autumnal backdrop for Colin McRae’s SUBARU Impreza 1995.

The trailer also shows a first look at DiRT Rally 2.0‘s stage degradation feature in action. Stage degradation replicates the way surfaces evolve throughout the course of a rally event.

“If you start first on the road you’re going to suffer from a lot of loose gravel, which means you’ll struggle for traction – and that makes it hard to put in a flowing stage with a good stage time,” said Codemasters’ Rally Consultant Jon Armstrong. “The optimal run time is probably around 5th to 10th place because you get that loose surface swept off, but it’s not too rough that it ruins your car or your rhythm.”

‘”he further down the running order you are from there, the more the surface is going to plough and rut, so you need to adjust your driving style and even your vehicle setup to cope with the evolving track. Even though you can drive down the same stage a thousand times, these stages are going to present a different challenge every time.”

DiRT Rally 2.0 is due out for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on February 26, 2019.
