It seems like we are announcing a new game almost everyday, and the long running rally racer Dirt 4 is today’s new game. It has been almost six years since Dirt 3. What can we expect from a modern sequel?
In order to ensure players are as close to the real experience as possible, Codemasters asked rally drivers Kris Meeke and Petter Solberg to provide their input to make the handling feel authentic. With the addition of crosskarts to Dirt 4, they have had Oliver Solberg helping to make sure you can almost taste the dirt in every turn.
They are also bringing more of the stages to the good ol’ USA with tracks in Michigan, Nevada, and California. They have also added a track in Baja, Mexico.
New tracks require new education, and the school will help you master the skills you need on those new tracks. You can test new cars and tune to perfection, before taking your new racer to the track.
The most interesting aspect of Dirt 4 is the Your Stage feature. This will allow you to build your own tracks with options, including the time of day. After you have submitted your best time, you can upload the level and challenge your friends to beat it.
The Dirt series has a engine-warmed spot in many gamer’s hearts. With the addition of PSVR support, this may be as close as you can come to the real thing without signing a liability waiver. We will find out when the game crosses the finish line in June.

Jason became terminally addicted to videogames after receiving the NES at an early age. This addiction grew to include PC gaming and was cemented with the launch of the PS2. From then on, he was afflicted with epic RPGs, tense shooters, and deep strategy games, never becoming skillful, but never able to quit. He continues to play games (poorly) and share his passion for them to anyone willing to listen.
