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.

This is a really fun, realistic and difficult rally simulator. The handling is close to a real car and the tracks exist in real life. It feels very satisfying to finish a course with good time, or sometimes just slide around a corner perfectly, when playing on the hardest setting. The game overall is great, but it has some big flaws. The CO driver is really inconsistent. Sometimes calling the notes so early, that you forget them, and sometimes calling them when you have already reached the corner. It?s really frustrating to fail a level because of the CO driver. But since the game doesn?t have that many stages, after playing some time you start to remember certain points in the levels. Also, the game stutters like hell when playing in full screen, though switching to windowed fixes the issue (at least for me). Really recommmend especially if you have a steering wheel, It?s a little too "hrdcore" to play on a controller, but you can if you want. And you can get on a sale if you want.
the most authentic rally game. a game which can please both casuals drivers (with assists enabled) driving 60's classics in "Monte Carlo", and hardcore drivers with "Pikes Peak" at high speed from green lights to the end. car tuning is much more detailed. variety of climate is so real and considers all conditions. great sounding cars, great graphics, difficult tracks! I've never rolled the car and not been able to drive off. that's the only thing that could be improved! the damage modeling needs to be improved which is very forgiving even on the hardest difficulty in specific situations. the menus are simple and the soundtrack is smooth! so far i unlocked 160 achievements, and I'm really glad that they included and keep adding them with updates. sincerely wanna congratulate code-masters for getting it right and doing the hard works yet in perfect way possible! since RBR, we've been starving for a proper rally game for years and this is the best there is
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.
