DiRT Rally 2.0 Gains New World RX Supercars Tomorrow… and Something Else is On the Way

Codemasters’ DiRT Rally 2.0 has continued to run strong, with Season 4 kicking off last November. The fourth season has brought new rally venues and, of course, new cars to the game.

Earlier this month, the Renault Megane R.S. RX, SEAT Ibiza RX, and the Ford Fiesta MK8 Rallycross made their way to the DR2 roster. Tomorrow, January 28, the final batch of cars are set to debut, and they are as follows:

  • MINI Cooper SX1
  • Renault Sport Clio R.S. RX
  • Ford Fiesta Rallycross (STARD)

First up, the XITE Racing MINI Cooper SX1, driven by Oliver Bennett. With over 600hp powering all four wheels, this is one MINI you shouldn’t take lightly. Next, the GC Kompetition Renault Sport Clio R.S. RX, driven by Guillaume de Ridder. Finally, there’s the Team STARD Ford Fiesta Rallycross, driven by Norwegian Pal Try.

With all three RX Supercars sending at least 600hp to all four wheels, there will be plenty of fun to be had. If that weren’t enough, the machines accelerate to 60mph in 1.9 seconds — that’s F1 levels of quickness. In addition to the three new cars, the update also brings with it a special livery pack.

Meanwhile, ahead of tomorrow’s update, Codemasters has already begun to tease what’s next for the game. In a 12-second teaser on the DiRT YouTube channel, the studio shows some snippets of a rally car tackling a circuit in the black of night. All we can make out is the car in question is may very well be the 1997 Subaru Impreza WRC driven by the late Colin McRae — the gold, eight-spoke Speedline wheels are something of a giveaway.

Other than that, and the fact that whatever it is will be coming in the spring, the teaser doesn’t reveal any further information. We can’t even make out the venue for the video. If you have an idea of what it could, sound off and let us know what you think.

The final update of Season 4 goes live tomorrow, January 28, and will be available on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC platforms.
