DiRT Showdown is a brand new dive in and drive adrenaline rush of speed,
style and destruction from the creators of the multi-award winning DiRT series.
Players jump into a new world of arcade racing with pick up and play controls,
speeding, tricking and smashing their way to 'Showdown' finals to compete
against rivals in front of thousands of fans in a vibrant festival atmosphere.
There are three broad categories to DiRT Showdown's stunning world of action-sport racing. Players will use nitrous to blast past rivals and negotiate courses filled with ramps, multiple routes and obstacles in racing events. Gaming's most advanced damage engine is pushed to its limits in demolition derby events, where players smash and crash their way to victory in jaw-dropping, bone-jarring style. Finally, in Hoonigan events gamers can demonstrate their freestyle driving skill in huge free-roaming stunt parks with new accessible controls.
DiRT Showdown is Codemasters' most connected game ever - split-screen multiplayer, eight player online racing, on and off-line quick-fire party games, and YouTube integration all come as standard. Players can also issue new 'Showdown Challenges' to compete with friends in on and off-line modes.
In the career mode, globe-trotting Showdown players will travel from Miami to San Francisco, London to Tokyo and other famous locations earning the adulation of the crowd at hyper-energised, frenzied, unsanctioned race events. Over 50 different events across four championships challenge gamers in a variety of conditions - sun, snow, and rain - through the day and under the floodlights at night.
With an exciting mix of licensed and bespoke cars and powered by the EGO Game Technology Platform for phenomenal graphical performance and stunning damage, DiRT Showdown will be the new standard for arcade driving delirium.
A exciting and eclectic mix of vehicles: DiRT Showdown features a
mouth-watering selection of cars. Ken Block's all new Gymkhana 4 HFHV Ford
Fiesta debuts alongside a varied selection of vehicles across a range of
classes. From saloons and muscle cars to pick-up trucks, hearses and vans,
players will have a wide selection of cars to trick, race and destroy.
Make your way to the showdown: Race through each championship until you make your way to the 'Showdown' finale. Each Showdown is held in a unique festival atmosphere where a frenzied party atmosphere, including pyrotechnics and lasers combine with DiRT Showdown's high-octane driving gameplay.
