Video: DIRT 3 trailer revealed
We'd be lying if we said DIRT 3 was our most anticipated race title of the year (that honour inevitably goes to the much-delayed Gran Turismo 5) but the latest evolution of the game which started life as Colin McRae Rally is still very high up on our Christmas list.
DIRT 2 (which still bore the McRae name in Europe) was a fine effort, even if the game's focus had shifted from unadulterated rallying to the stateside influence of X Games regulars Ken Block, Travis Pastrana, Tanner Foust and Dave Mirra.
DIRT 3's British developer, Codemasters, has already confessed it probably ought to be 'flying the flag a bit more' but the first trailer's gymkhana ending doesn't leave us in much hope for hard Scottish accents and lonely forest stages. Looks good though.
