The achievement and trophy list for upcoming rally racer DiRT 4 has been released to the public this week. Codemasters has shown off the type of events and challenges that will put players to the test when the game launches on June 9. The list seems to be a good mix of career-based tasks and general driving tests whilst containing some entertaining names to boot.
The unveil comes courtesy of specialist website XboxAchievements and details 48 trials you’ll face in the hunt for the perfect gamerscore or platinum trophy, depending on if you’re playing Xbox or PlayStation respectively. There are a few stand-outs on the list that show Codemasters has had a bit of fun putting together the challenges.
“First on The GRID” is an easy reference for players to pick up on, the play on words is of course talking about the GRID series, another popular franchise developed by Codies. “I Am The 7.7%” is the return of a recurring achievement in the portfolio of Codemasters racing games — it’s earned by winning a rally event in headcam mode.
The story behind the 7.7% achievement is an interesting one. It’s a playful jab at the developer’s decision to drop the interior view camera from GRID 2, due to (at the time) only 5% of overall players making use of the feature.
After the initial backlash, Codemasters is happy to look back on this event in a lighthearted nature, as the unlock conditions for this achievement have appeared numerous times throughout its published racing games. It even seems like there’s been a 2.7% increase in players using the interior view since GRID 2!
The full list is available below for those hunters who want to know what they’ll be up against when they get the racer in their hands. With the wide range of challenges on and off the track, getting all these will certainly keep you busy. With features like Your Stage and the comprehensive career mode, DiRT 4 is shaping up to be everything that DiRT Rally was and more. We’ll keep you updated with the latest in the franchise.
