Landrush is back in Dirt 4, however it has undergone some changes since its debut in Dirt 3.
In a recent blog post, details have been revealed about the changes to the Landrush mode in Dirt 4. Landrush features three classes of vehicle exclusive to the mode.
The Larock 2XR Buggy class is a RWD rear-Engine… well, buggy. It may be the least powerful vehicle in the line-up, but that makes it the best to learn the discipline of short course racing. The Jackson Pro-Truck 2 class is also RWD, but these Stadium Trucks boast 700bhp so are much more of a hand full than the Buggies. Finally, the Jackson Pro-Truck 4 class is the only 4WD class in Landrush. These Trophy Trucks are the most powerful class in Landrush with power clocking in at 900bhp.
As a special addition, there is another buggy added to the game, the Speedcar Xtrem, which will be available in both Landrush, and Rallycross modes. They are low-slung buggies with motorbike engines, and thus are very different from the other classes.
As with the Rally and Rallycross modes, Landrush will feature four handling modes. “Gamer” will accommodate the newcomers, whereas the hardcore fanbase is catered for with the “Simulation” setting.
There are three tracks, set in Baja, California, and Nevada. While they are not real world tracks, the team working on Dirt 4 has researched into real world tracks, to ensure that these fictional offerings are authentic to the motorsport. Things like berms, moguls, jumps, step-ups and split routes are included.
“Even getting further into that we researched the height and length of various jumps, to make sure we were going to build something that was true to the existing circuits.”
Multiplayer is also a large part of Landrush, as it is for Dirt 4 as a whole, with full eight-player support. While Landrush is not a compulsory part of the career in Dirt 4, you will need to play it to get 100%.
Dirt 4 releases on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC on June 6th, 2017.
