    No. This game isn't a part of the "regular" dirt series. It's not very hard to tick the link in the OP and see what the game is about.

    Me personally, I can't really stand gymkana, hoonigan, whatever. I'm interested in this game due to the 8 ball and demo derby stuff. Something I've been wanting since Race Driver GRID came out.

    Here:

    No rally. That's for DiRT 4... Of course if Codemasters released a DiRT 4 already people would be moaning about that. They really should of called this game GRID showdown, but I guess the DiRT name is more recognizeable.

    Hopefully the demo will consist of demo derby and/or the 8 ball races. If it's just "hoonigan" or whatever it's going to be a demo failure for sure.

    I could only find that it's out May, 1st. No specific time.

    Btw, it has been confirmed that this game will use Steamworks on the PC, which means...no GFWL.


    Yey?

    Don't think this is going to be a big seller but I am going to get it.
    Will be downloading the demo when it comes out.

    Personally I'm looking for a modern day

    [​IMG]

    1st and 2nd of that game gave rise to these types of games, I still have fun play those 2 titles, and theres been other games like them (but a bit more wild) like Motorstorm or FlatOut that I have enjoyed, but they were a bit too outlandish to see them as a modern day Destruction Derby.

    yes yay! GFWL was always buggy on my PC and seemed to slow down game load times. I have a better chance of buying it now that it is going to be out for steam.

    i played that game a lot. tons of fun.

    I just hope multiplayer is somewhat like GRID. Sure there were problems, but playing people across the world and having fun is what I enjoyed most.


    jajajajajajajajajajajaja!!!!! Lol.
