If you’re still undecided on whether to pick up DiRT Rally 2.0 or not, Codemasters has released something to help you make your mind up.
Dubbed “Trial Version”, it’s effectively a free demo of the game that’s now available on Xbox One and PlayStation 4. The Trial Version features ten of the game’s cars to race in two different disciplines of rally.
The classic stage Rally mode will see you take on point-to-point courses across a number of different surface types, including gravel and asphalt. You’ll be able to drive historic rally cars like the Lancia Fulvia and Mini Cooper, while taking pace note instructions from your co-driver.
Also included is a Rallycross mode. Here you’ll be racing specialist rallycross machines from brands like Volkswagen, Subaru, and Ford in head-to-head races on tight and mixed surface circuits. There’s just one track available in the Trial Version, set at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya.
Codemasters has worked with the game’s community to put together a ‘greatest highlights’ package for the Trial Version. This means it features some of the best from both the game’s car list and track list.
If the free demo and our own review of the game convince you to pick the game up, there’s two further pieces of good news. The first is that your progress in the Trial Version will carry over to the full game which, for the second, is currently discounted by 70% in the PS Store.
