Rally legend honoured as game takes inspiration from modern off-road events
Codemasters announced today Colin McRae: DiRT 2, an off-road racer sequel in the works at Codemasters Studios and scheduled for 2009, for PC, PS3, Xbox 360, Wii, DS and PSP. Colin McRae: DiRT 2 will feature a roster of contemporary off-road events, taking players to the most diverse and challenging real-world environments. This World Tour will have players competing in aggressive multi-car and intense solo races at new locations, from canyon racing and jungle trails to city stadium-based events. Powered by the third generation of the EGO Engine, Colin McRae: DiRT 2 will benefit from tuned-up car-handling physics system and new damage engine effects. It will also showcase a spectacular new level of visual fidelity, with cars and tracks twice as detailed as those seen in Race Driver: GRID. The first three screenshots found their way in our gallery.
