Dirt 4 Revealed To Come Later This Year

Just last week, Codemasters has just revealed that Dirt 4 will be coming to PS4, Xbox One and PC in June 2017. According to Press Start, the game Dirt 4 features a game-changing system called 'Your Stage.' It’s an innovative rally route production that allows you to produce an almost-infinite number of unique and individual stages.

You get a chance to choose your location and route parameters and Your Stage does the rest. The featured 5 rally locations on the Dirt 4 are Spain, Michigan, Wales, Sweden and Australia. As the official racing game of the FIA World Rallycross Championship, you will also get to race across all the tracks seen on the race calendar. It includes the Montalegre, Lohéac Bretagne, Hell, Holjes and Lydden Hill.

The game Dirt 4 is one of the long-awaited next entry in Codemasters' critically acclaimed Dirt series. After the in-demand Dirt Rally which proved an incredibly successful Early Access project, the developer decided to adopt a type of race sim in its mainline series, although this one will look to incorporate more casual players, too. While the existing Dirt Rally was most definitely catering for a hardcore racing audience, Dirt 4 takes a softer approach by including difficulty settings and tutorials to help encourage others to pick it up and learn the tricks of the rally trade.

Dirt 4 Revealed On Nintendo Switch

The game designer of the Dirt 4, Darren Hayward, has teased that it could also come to Nintendo Switch --but maybe don't get your hopes up about that. Personally, I've got my Switch preordered and I'm getting it day one," Hayward told the UK's Daily Star. "Obviously at launch [Dirt 4] is not coming to Switch. We'd already picked our platforms. We've nothing to announce right now, but, I wouldn't rule it out."

Hayward went on to say that the game developer Codemasters would have to do the "quite a lot in terms of extra tweaks" to support the Nintendo Switch's unique features, including its Joy-Con motion controllers. "There are not many inputs, so you'd have to have super simplified controls and because of that, it may not be the ideal scenario for Dirt 4," he said. "That said, I could definitely see Nintendo Switch having some compelling racing experiences."

According to Codemasters, Dirt 4 will put an importance on the dangerous nature of motorsports. "Dirt 4 is all about embracing that danger," the developer said in an interview. "It's about the thrill, exhilaration, and adrenaline that is absolutely vital to offroad racing." Dirt 4 follows the 2016 racing game Dirt Rally but is the first numbered entry since 2011's Dirt 3.

As for the Nintendo Switch, it launches on March 3, priced at $300. While Codemasters & Deep Silver announced that DiRT 4 will fearlessly race to the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows PC on June 6, 2017. If ever Dirt 4 will be seen on the Nintendo Switch, we still need to wait a little longer for an announcement.
