We’re closing in on DiRT Rally 2.0‘s release date of February 26 at a rapid pace and excitement is growing here at TeamVVV.
Although Codemasters has recently shared a few new environments and cars they are still keeping some elements close to their chest. Fortunately, Chief Game Designer Ross Gowing has briefly touched on the title’s career mode format which understandably takes some cues from the original DiRT Rally.
DiRT Rally 2.0’s career mode consists of five steps on the ladder culminating with the “Masters” rung. The real challenge, according to Gowing, is staying at this highest level.
Achieving progression through the various rungs (or tiers) can be done in any of the title’s cars so you can achieve success with a low powered front wheel drive car if you want to steer clear of some of the trickier rear wheel drive monsters.
This is possible because DiRT Rally 2.0 pairs you with AI opponents that use cars in your class which should make for close racing regardless of what car(s) you choose to drive in the career mode.
Although the rallycross segment in DiRT Rally 2.0 opts for a similar system, Gowing points out that once you reach the top of the rallycross ladder you will need to use a world rallycross supercar to compete.
That’s about all we know on the career mode format right now, however, keep checking back for more info on DiRT Rally 2.0 and be sure to browse our dedicated DiRT Rally 2.0 page for tons of info on the upcoming off-road racer.
DiRT Rally 2.0 will release on February 26, 2019, across the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Players who purchase the Deluxe Edition can access the full title four days earlier, on February 22, 2019.
