Codemasters today released a new trailer for DiRT Showdown, an action packed extension of the DiRT series. The Massive Damage video features work-in-progress gameplay footage and reveals the destruction-focussed game modes to feature in DiRT Showdown. In demolition derby event Rampage, eight racers take no prisoners, earning points for spectacular smashes on their rivals' vehicles and eliminating other drivers in gladiatorial automotive auditoriums. DiRT Showdown’s Knock Out mode is also revealed, featuring drivers using their cars as weapons to force opponents off a raised platform in a chaotic battle for domination. Eliminated vehicles can re-enter the fray by racing up ramps and jumping back onto the platform, where points are earned for knock-outs, hits and owning the ring alone.
DiRT Showdown will launch in May 2012 for PC, Xbox 360 and PS3.
