It’s there’s one thing that you need to know about me it’s that I love a good racing game. Actually I also love Fantasy, Open World, Horror, RPG, Adventure, Action, Puzzle, Sports and every other genre of games but that goes without saying. I remember as a young boy spending hours putting different colour lights underneath my car on Need For Speed Underground 2 (by far the best Need For Speed game) but I also spent hours on the old school Gran Turismo games, me and my friends taking it in turns to do the endurance races then taking your car to be cleaned after it became caked in dirt. Those were the days.
For the last few years it has felt like there are less and less good racing games being released. Now, games are using cars to play football instead of race. There have been a few good games but they are certainly a dying breed. With that being said, rather unsurprisingly, this post is about a new racing game. The all new, all singing, all dancing Dirt 4.
Dirt 4 is the latest game in the long running Dirt franchise. If you aren’t familiar with the franchise then it is a series of games focused solely around off-road rally racing, not dissimilar to the old Colin McRae games (what many people don’t realize is that it is actually a continuation of the same series). In that respect, Dirt 4 seems to follow the mould with it continuing the theme of being a rally only game.
In the latest trailer, see below, we can see a smorgasbord (love that word) of vehicles that we will soon be able to crash, I mean race.
Dirt 4 is due to be released June 9 on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
