DiRT Rally out on Steam today, gets official console release date
Skidding onto consoles this April
DiRT Rally has completed its early access program on Steam and is now available for full purchase beginning today. Codemasters has also announced the console release dates for the game as well.
The CEO of Codemasters Frank Sagnier commented on the game's release and overwhelming demand by saying
“The launch on Steam early access has been a resounding success. We want to thank the community for their valuable feedback and support which has guided our development for the past eight months, resulting in a 92% positive user score. We are now ready to launch the final version of the game on PC. Following this success on PC and a vocal demand from consumers, we are delighted to announce that Dirt Rally will be available on consoles on April 5th 2016. "
Two new cars, the Hyundai Rally and Volkswagon Polo Rally have been added to the game as part of an update with the full release. The Winter Wonderland update, which delivers a new rally set in the snow and ice of the Varmland region of Sweden, has also been added to the game. These snow-filled stages are known for their snow banks and Codemasters has pioneered new soft edge tech that simulates the density of snow. As a result, players can now lean on the snow banks when pushing for those stage records. The Winter Wonderland update is free to all DiRT Rally Early Access players.
