Welcome to DiRT Rally - a new world of DiRT. A pure expression of rally, the pinnacle of off-road motor racing and it begins now, in Early Access, with regular free updates including new locations, new game modes and new vehicles.
DiRT Rally captures the essence of what makes rally unique – that sense of trying to remain in control of your emotions, as you hurtle along dangerous, undulating roads at breakneck speed, aiming to squeeze everything out of your car whilst knowing that one crash could irreparably harm your stage time. It’s the ultimate test of a driver’s skill, and it’s the ultimate in high risk, high reward gameplay.
Every stage will test you differently, as you feel out grip across varying surfaces and adapt your style to a range of different weather types. As the car suffers attrition you’ll need to account for mechanical damage whilst your dedicated rally team tries to keep you competitive with time-limited repairs between stages. As stages string together, each rally becomes a marathon-like test of concentration and skill, as you trust in your co-driver and your own ability to react and adapt, in order to stay competitive and chase that ever-elusive perfect run.
DiRT RALLY AND THE COMMUNITY: The community is DiRT Rally’s co-driver and their feedback will help shape the evolution of the experience. For players joining DiRT Rally in Early Access and the road ahead, the team want their feedback. They’ll be helping to test theories and providing vital data that will help to refine DiRT Rally.
EXPERIENCE 3 MASSIVE NEW REAL-WORLD RALLY LOCATIONS: From the start of Early Access, DiRT Rally offers three massive environments and 36 challenging stages, with more to follow. Drive them during the day - in dry, overcast, sunny, misty, wet, rainy and snowy conditions - and then take them on at night for a very different, intense experience that will challenge the elite.
Powys, Wales - Muddy, wet gravel stages and forest runs often in the rain during the day and at night.
Monte Carlo, Monaco – Tight, twisting, dangerous roads covered with snow and ice that wind through the Alps. Snow and mist affect visibility during the day and at night.
Argolis, Greece – Sweeping dusty gravel stages that take their toll on even the strongest rally cars in the intense heat of the Mediterranean in the bright daylight or at night.
14 CARS OVER 6 NEW AND CLASSIC CLASSES TO DRIVE NOW: Rally is about having the right car and DiRT Rally will have all of the right cars. At the start of Early Access, DiRT Rally delivers 14 cars and will be adding more cars over more classes in the future.
NEW DRIVING MODEL: The physical simulation for DIRT Rally has been completely rebuilt to adequately capture how it feels to race across changing surfaces, and loose surfaces collect under the wheels during lateral sliding, creating a completely new feel to sliding around corners.
RALLY CHAMPIONSHIPS, RALLY ASYNC & CUSTOM RALLY EVENTS: Take on a single stage and learn the calls in Custom Rally events, compete against increasingly skilled opposition in Rally Seasons or prove yourself against the entire community of players in Rally Async challenges.
TEAM MANAGEMENT: Hire up to four engineering staff to work on your vehicle between stages. Drill down and hire them based on their contract length, wage demands, and on the insight they can offer over upgrades to the vehicles you own. Keep renewing an engineer’s contract and you’ll be able to give them perks that will help upgrade specific vehicles faster.
UPGRADES: As you drive a vehicle in events your engineers will become more familiar with it and will research upgrades that will unlock the full potential of the car. DiRT Rally’s comprehensive upgrade system makes meaningful improvements to the car’s handling and performance to stay competitive
TUNING: Delivering the most comprehensive tuning system ever in a DiRT game, DiRT Rally enables players to tune their cars based on weather conditions, car condition and more to ensure they can refine their setup and get the car feeling right for their driving style.
DAMAGE & REPAIRS: Off-road racing is tough and unforgiving; competing causes vehicles to suffer wear and tear as replicated by DiRT Rally’s comprehensive mechanical damage system. Thankfully, damage can be repaired by hiring eEngineers to work in the team’s Service Area between stages. Much as in the Colin McRae Rally games, there’s a finite amount of time to repair cars between rally stages.
PHYSICS-BASED ASSISTS: Being fast is about skill, not raw speed. Whilst DiRT Rally allows players to experience cars in their purest form it also offers a selection of real world assists, similar to those seen in race and road vehicles. Traction Control works to minimise wheel spin, ABS increases your braking ability by preventing the wheels from locking up and Stability Control keeps your car from over rotating in the corners.
EXPERIENCE 5 MASSIVE NEW REAL-WORLD RALLY LOCATIONS: DiRT Rally now offers five massive environments and 50 challenging stages, with more to follow. Drive them during the day - in dry, overcast, sunny, misty, wet, rainy and snowy conditions - and then take them on at night for a very different, intense experience that will challenge the elite.

for Codemasters with this one. It is such an amazing rally racing game. For the DiRT fans, you may want to consider what you're looking for. Gone is the arcade-ish element from the previous games. Along with the "X-games crowd" fluff. This is all about the racing this go around. Focused mostly on pure rally, it does also have some hill climb (Pike's Peak) and rallycross stages as well. Cars handle dramatically differently between class and model. It leans very sim heavy on the handling compared to previous games in the franchise and it's all the better for it. The game just feels right. Graphically it's very nice looking, especially when running on triple-wide monitors (it loses points for no native HTC Vive support at the time of this review) and if they ever get the game running native for VR racing on the Vive, they'd likely have one of the best non-roomscale games available. If you're a fan of rally, racing or just curious about the sport...this is a very solid title that you should definitely add to your library. Aside from the lack of Vive support, I can't think of any negatives worth mentioning...there are some but they're all minor and won't affect your experience enough to bother mentioning. As for the casual racing fans, be aware though that since this game takes the series back onto the sim side of the road, the learning curve can be steep, steeper still to go fast...but the feeling of accomplishment as you nail a great run or lead a stage is completely worth taking time to learn.
I'm a big rally fans, however, I'm not much of a simulation player, so those looking for the ultimate rally sim might be disappointed, I can't judge it by that. But for rally fans that just love the sport, the cars and the general gameplay will find a great arcade experience with daily stages and championships, many tracks and a huge amount of cars from all generations here. The track variety could be bit higher, however, the game is still in early access and the content releases are quite quick. Highly recommended.
I loved the DiRT franchise as Codemasters always made quality games. DiRT 3 was fun but I was always more into simulators than arcade racers. DiRT Rally delivered in spades, focusing only on the Rally. Its immersive and challenging always making you want to beat your best times. If you are into racing games there is no doubt that DiRT Rally is a must buy.
I loved the crap out of Dirt, Dirt 2 wasn't bad either, Dirt 3 and showdown... I just stopped playing. Now DiRT Rally - playing strictly rally events without the buggy/truck racing etc... this is my kind of game! Although the game looks expensive, it's well worth it and it is going to keep updating too, so the price is going to keep going up (until the full release price). Playing with a steering wheel (Logitech Pro wheel) with a forza racing seat set up... I can't stop!
First of all, obviously, DiRT Rally looks gorgeous. But on top of that, it plays almost perfectly, The cars have weight to them but they don't feel weighed down. They move naturally and are easy to control but hard to master. The environments are perfectly constructed for rally racing, and the game is an absolute blast.
