Codemasters just announced a new DiRT game known as DiRT Showdown scheduled for release next May. Described as "an arcade-style spin-off," it looks to stray even further from the series' rally roots. Think of DiRT 2's extreme sports elements combined with DiRT 3's Gymkhana with an added mix of destruction derby events.

Sounds as if those who haven't liked the "hey I'm Ken Block" direction of DiRT probably won't enjoy this one either, but don't fret - DiRT 4 has already been confirmed and will apparently bring back the simulation aspect. Just a shame we probably won't be seeing it until 2013 at the earliest.

To be honest I would have happily swapped this for a new GRiD as it sounds a bit too Need for Speed...

A new DiRT! Great, hope it will be as good as the previous one was or even better!

I'm not liking the sound of the handling being more arcadey and the lack of rally will no doubt alienate people all over again. It is only meant as a spin-off I guess, but like I said I would have preferred a new GRiD or just go straight to DiRT 4. We'll see.

Does DiRT Showdown can be better than "Driven To Destruction" (Test Drive: Eve of Destruction in US)?
Previously DiRT didn't have good engine for Destruction Derby.

Is there any licenced cars(instead of Fiesta). What mods game have (demolition derby, single race,...)

Pretty sure I read the majority will be licensed, but I'll ask. Unlicensed cars will more than likely be restricted to the demolition derby.

I did a breakdown of the modes in this post: www.made2game.com/articles/News/DiRT-Showdown/26380/DiRT-Showdown-New-Game-of-the-Day-35/

Quote In order to provide the amount of destruction they wanted, Dirt Showdown’s designers decided to only use licensed cars for the game’s Hoonigan mode. While a full list of cars isn’t currently available the real-world cars that Dirt Showdown will include in Hoonigan mode will include, Ken Block’s Ford Fiesta H.F.H.V. from Gymkhana 4, a Hoonigan-edition Ford Escort Mk 2, a Scion Racing Scion tC, as well as a rally-prepped Subaru Impreza WRX STI.

This indeed looks like Flatout collides with GRID's derby mode (plus a bit Hoonigan-ism)!

Lots of new videos . Does not look very good, not many modes. They would be better releasing it as a XBLA arcade game.

Also I'm excited to say I will be visiting Codemasters studios in a couple of weeks time! As always, is there anything anyone wants me to ask regarding DiRT Showdown, F1, their past games or Codemasters in general?

I assume so many didn't like it due of not being DiRT/Colin McRae series and lacking of manual transmission?

Could you ask if they plan on including classic F1 cars in F1 2012 or future F1 titles?

Oh, and ask them how many cars GRID 2 will have and whether they're fully customizable or not.

I doubt they will reveal anything about GRiD 2 sadly since it hasn't been officially announced yet. E3 is looking likely however.

NFSRacer0210 wrote Should i buy this game or Ridge Racer Unbounded?

It depends. Both games have the demos released already, but Unbounded has a quite messy multiplayer (i.e, it *quite* barely works until now)

I suggest you'd better try both demos first before buying.

RR:U.
Much more destruction(it's Bugbear, ffs), hell, to skip to the point, it's basically Flatout on steroids.

Photos from the day are now up on the IGCD Bookface!

Got to play the new browser-based F1 Online: The Game and interviewed the producer, so more on that soon. Sadly the DiRT team were away on holiday after completing DiRT Showdown, so couldn't ask anything about that :(

To be honest, I don't quite like the car handling here. Is it just me or the cars spun too easily.

Seems we've got nearly all the cars here, with the exception of the Kohler G350 and the Lombardi 336LM.

I've never actually played the game, I just looked up all the cars on a car list on a different site, and it seems those are the 2 that are missing (unless they missed anything, the page is here: vgfaq.com/guides/dirt-showdown-cars-list/).

Using Fraps during the replay is the best possible way.
