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.

The first hour of this game for me was watching tutorial videos explaining the physics of driving dirt rally. The next few hours were devoted being able to drive a whole stage without sliding off the road. The next few hours were about being competitive on one surface, all of which changed when trying out a different surface type. Dirt Rally is tough and unforgiving. Even with the co-driver giving instructions on the upcoming road, staying on and posting a decent time is a challenge. It's definitely not a game for a casual racer, but it is a rewarding game for those who don't mind practising over and over to get things just right.
Dirt Rally killed it. This is a true simulator when i play this game it scares me how realistic it feels ripping through the trees in a JDM Evo X. this game is brutally hard. it punishes so hard if you mess up, every second counts. its so frustrating when you get really close to the end of a track and then crash or fly off a cliff. DiRT Rally, the part where you actually drive the car is pretty fun. Excellent driving mechanics, and physics. It works well even on wheels without Force Feedback. I also tried it on a controller and it is still very serviceable. Sounds are great. Including Pikes Peak is icing on the cake. Learning curve is a bit steep but manageable, the tutorials do a good job of explaining how rally racing is different from track. On the other hand the game could have had more variety of cars and tracks, and the graphics are a bit dated, but I am so hooked that none of that bothers me. Overall an awesome game, and you should try if you're a fan of racing games.
This game is tough. I love racing games and am quite good at them, but DIRT Rally crushed me. It is so difficult, but at the same time so rewarding when you finally get it! If you are a fan of dexterity-based driving, or like to use a keyboard in your racing games, don't even think of getting this one. But, if you have got a gamepad, or, preferrably, a driving wheel, and are a veteran of racing games, then this one is for you. Yes, you will get frustrated. Yes, you will finish dead last. But then something will click, and you will slowly start to climb the standings. And this will be one of the best feelings in games you can imagine.
Easily the best rally game I have ever played. DiRT Rally brings back the best aspects of old Colin McRae Rally games and combines it with great visuals even better than in older DiRT titles. Beware though, the game is hard. I'm trying to play it on a gamepad without any assists enabled and it's truly challenging - taming a RWD Group B car on ice is nearly impossible! My biggest issue with the game? Multiplayer is Rallycross exclusive - so you can't compete with other drivers on rally nor hillclimb stages. Shame, because DiRT3 did it perfectly :(
Dirt Rally is the most authentic, exciting, and fun rally experience on PC or console since Richard Burns Rally. The best game of it's kind available today, no doubt about it! Have played since beta and it's better than ever today, highly optimized vs it's earlier releases. You will not master Dirt Rally in the first Day, First Week, Maybe even the First Month - but eventually you will get...better! I don't think anyone can truly master this game. Although some of those youtube clicks are impressive. Even when you get to the point where you know the track well you still have those moments where you clip a rock, tree, parked car, hay bale, forget to turn, not take the right line through a jump (thinking finland here), and the game punishes you for it! Bigtime! but when you get it right! You get a huge sense of achievement and satisfaction. For the true experience you must use a steering wheel, manual gears, all driving aids turned off = Truly Challenging!!
