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).
Another Dev Diary from Codemasters detailing their attention to detail in respect to handling in the upcoming F1 2010 due in September. I’m a little sceptical of how they can claim it handles realistically when it runs at 30fps, especially when you consider Studio Liverpool managed to make a decent F1 game back in 2006 run at 60fps… I’ve added the video after the jump along with some new screenshots, unfortunately they are still of 2009 season cars but the video does show some crashes and car damage in action.
This is a developer interview video but shows some pre-alpha footage of F1 2010, it’s all last season like the screenshots posted already but it gives us an idea of how the dynamic weather will look. Unfortunately there’s no video of crashes or any damage to know how that is. Lets just hope the game ios more exciting than the snooze fest that was the season opener in Bahrain last weekend…
