    It’s on… Head-to-head world rallycross racing comes to Dirt Rally™


    Codemasters today announced that DiRT Rally™ just got (more) serious with the introduction of the all-new multiplayer rallycross mode, free to download now for all Early Access players. From today, drivers will not just be racing against the clock, but against fellow DiRT Rally owners from around the world. A new video is available to view now at

    DiRT Rally’s multiplayer update is the second pack to feature content from the FIA World Rallycross Championship and will see gamers compete online in the highly demanding, super-charged and full-contact racing of one of the world’s fastest growing motorsports. Players will be vying for glory across three locations in six of the world’s fastest off-road cars.

    The cars:

    DS3 (Newly added today)
    Subaru WRX STI (Newly added today)
    MINI Countryman Rallycross (Newly added today)
    Ford Fiesta WRX
    Volkswagen Polo Rallycross
    Peugeot 208 WRX

    The tracks:

    Hell, Norway (Newly added today)
    Lydden Hill, United Kingdom
    Höljes, Sweden

    Since its launch this April, DiRT Rally’s player base has steadily grown month-on-month and to date:

    • Over 44 million kilometres have been driven
    • Players have driven 1.5 million clean stages
    • 2 million barrel rolls have been completed

    Today’s update continues Codemasters’ commitment of delivering free, regular and substantial content updates during DiRT Rally’s Early Access phase on Steam. Further content is planned for the coming months.

    DiRT Rally is available to purchase here.

    To experience the sheer raw power of these three new cars in action check out the brand new trailer at and for all DiRT Rally assets, be sure to sign up to the Codemasters press extranet.

    With DiRT Rally, Codemasters has captured the essence of what makes rally unique – that sense of trying to remain in control of your emotions, as you hurtle along dangerous, undulating roads at breakneck speed, aiming to squeeze everything out of your car whilst knowing that one crash could irreparably harm your stage time. It’s the ultimate test of a driver’s skill, and it’s the ultimate in high risk, high reward gameplay.

    The community is DiRT Rally’s co-driver and their feedback is helping to shape the evolution of the experience. For players joining DiRT Rally in Early Access and the road ahead, the team want their feedback. They’ll be helping to test theories and providing vital data that will help to refine DiRT Rally.
