DiRT 3 in the Works! New Trailer!


If anyone has been watching the X Games on ESPN today, the reveal trailer for DiRT 3 was shown (I missed the trailer on TV, but I did watch most of the RallyCross event). The trailer shows off drive-by shots of some of the supposed tracks in the game (which blend into one another), and one of the new features seems to be snow, and the track variety seems to be kicked up a notch, which I hope is the case as, despite DiRT 2 being a great off-road racer, the track variety was lacking.

At the end, it appears that there might be a stunt arena of sorts, which would be pretty cool (the ramp in the background almost looks like the 70 foot ramp from today’s event, though). Given that, I wonder if they would have cross-over races like that in the game (1-on-1, with one person starting on one half of the track and the other driver on the other half, with both racers eventually crossing over and racing the entire track).

    Do we think that the trailer is using the in-game engine? If it is…wow.

    I really doubt it. It looks way too cinematic.

    It may be using in game engine. Codemasters has always had cinematic camera action down to a science. Like the replay camera angles in dirt 2 were really good.

    After viewing the trailer again I think its from the PC version of the game.

    It’s most likely using the game engine’s specs, but may be rendered, as the transitions from one track to another are seamless, but the games themselves? Codemasters, as mentioned, has always had a hold of stylized, smooth graphical presentation like that (Just look at DiRT 2 and GRiD, the games look great). Replays are also very cinematic. They do an excellent job with these games.
