  1. La Codemasters ci presenta ufficialmente per la prima volta in video il suo nuovo DiRT 4, che sarà disponibile dal 9 giugno su tutte le piattaforme. Il trailer, dal titolo "be fearless" (ovvero sii senza paura), condensa in 1 minuto di azione pura, tutto quello che dovremo aspettarci dal racing game della casa inglese. We’re delighted to be able to show you the first official gameplay trailer for DiRT 4, which showcases the breadth of racing that fans will be able to experience on the PlayStation® 4 computer entertainment system, Xbox One and Windows PC from 9th June 2017. You can view the new DiRT 4 gameplay trailer right here on our blog: DiRT 4 is available to pre-order now on PS4, Xbox One and Steam with exclusive goodies – pre-order now to reserve your place in our special Founders Event at launch! Pre-order on the PlayStation Store >>> http://bit.ly/DiRT4-PS4EU Pre-order on the Xbox Store >>> http://bit.ly/DiRT4-XboxOne Pre-order on Steam >>> http://bit.ly/DiRT4-Steam In case you didn’t notice it, the new trailer features the absolutely banger of a track that is ‘Instigators’ by Grace Potter – just one of the songs from the amazing in-game soundtrack that has been created for DiRT 4 in an exclusive partnership with Globe, Universal Music UK’s in-house sync team. The agreement with Globe will see over 40 licensed tracks appear throughout the game, matching DiRT’s unique style and tone, and including exclusive tracks from artists such as The Amazons, Sigma, Freak and Pretty Vicious alongside tracks from The Chemical Brothers, Disclosure, Queens Of The Stone Age and Bastille.
  2. Ragazzi, era prevista una novità da parte dei Codies ed eccola: http://www.dirt4game.com/uk Fantastico il tool previsto per creare prove speciali. Con un annuncio ed un trailer pubblicati a sorpresa, Codemasters ha svelato oggi il nuovo DiRT 4, capitolo che riprende la numerazione classica della serie dopo DiRT Rally, per il quale è in arrivo un DLC dedicato alla PlayStation VR. DiRT 4 è un'evoluzione nella simulazione rallystica per il team britannico, con alcune novità interessanti, a cominciare da un sistema chiamato "Your Stage" che consente agli utenti di creare nuovi tracciati attraverso un potente editor che permette di espandere i contenuti di gioco a dismisura, scegliendo l'ambientazione ed una serie di parametri specifici. DiRT 4, nelle intenzioni di Codemasters, si pone nel mezzo fra la simulazione realistica di un DiRT Rally e il divertimento immediato di DiRT 2 e 3, senza dimenticare le fondamenta dei vari Colin McRae Rally ed aggiungendo le licenze ufficiali del FIA World Rallycross Championship. L'uscita del gioco è prevista per giugno 2017 su PC, PlayStation 4 e Xbox One. Yes, you read it right – DiRT 4 is coming! Today, we’re delighted to announce that DiRT 4 will fearlessly race to PS4, Xbox One and Windows PC in June 2017. Hot on the heels of 2016’s critically and commercially successful DiRT Rally, DiRT 4 takes the passion and authenticity of off-road racing to the next level, whilst also re-introducing you all to white-knuckle truck and buggy racing in Landrush. Motorsport by its very nature is dangerous – it says so on the back of the ticket. DiRT 4 is all about embracing that danger. It’s about the thrill, exhilaration and adrenaline that is absolutely vital to off-road racing. And more than that, it’s about loving that feeling. It’s about pushing flat out next to a sheer cliff drop. Going for the gap that’s slightly too small. Seeing how much air you can get in a truck. They call it ‘being fearless’ – and this is what we aim to inspire in DiRT 4. DiRT 4 features a game-changing system called Your Stage; an innovative rally route creation tool that allows you to produce an almost-infinite number of unique stages at the press of a button. You choose your location and set the route parameters, then Your Stage does the hard work to create a unique rally stage that you can race, share with your friends, and then challenge them to beat your time. Your Stage allows experienced rally players to create longer, more technical routes, whilst newcomers can create simpler shorter routes as they hone their skills. With DiRT 4, we’ve sought to combine the levels of thrill and realism from last year’s DiRT Rally with the fearless excitement, fun, and adrenaline-fuelled races previously seen in its critically acclaimed prequels DiRT 2 and DiRT 3. Featuring classic rally racing that continues to build on the foundations set by the Colin McRae Rally games, the brutal, fast-paced racing from the official FIA World Rallycross Championship, the crazy battles of racing trucks and buggies, and the outrageous fun of open events in Joyride, players will face challenges from locations that span three continents. We can’t wait to tell you more of DiRT 4, so stay tuned for the road to launch – we’ve got so much to show you.
  3. La Codemasters ha appena pubblicato un nuovo road book dedicato al suo prossimo DiRT 4. Questa volta l'attenzione è focalizzata sulla nuova modalità denominata "Creating Your Stage", che guida appunto il giocatore alla creazione della propria tappa rally personalizzata. Creating Your Stage environments Right, that’s enough from me! It’s time for a juicy technical feature on one of DiRT 4’s awesome new features. So, let me hand you over to Lead Technical Designer on DiRT 4 and one of the many brains behind our Your Stage system, Jason Evans. Want to know how Your Stage environments are created and how it enhances the player experience? You’re in luck, because those are the questions I asked him – and that’s exactly what he delivered. It’s all gold, so get yourself comfortable and enjoy. :) In terms of the new opportunities Your Stage has brought to the table, what are you excited about being able to offer players? Your Stage has opened up many opportunities for us as a developer and for the player experience. One good example of this is the ability to add more ‘straight’ sections into our tracks. In the past this has been avoided to a certain extent, because in order to try and maximise the amount of gameplay within the very tight track budget it was always deemed as a lesser feature. Your Stage now allows us the ability to show just what a feature section of straights can be – and not only can we add a few more straights into tracks, but we have control over how many and how long these sections can be. We can now have some sections of straights at different lengths, some around 1km long, and these often prove to be truly fearless sections of track. Their straightness encourages the player to go flat out, but the changes in the track surface, undulation, objects and trees keep the player alert – as the consequences of going wrong when flat out could easily end your rally. This provides a great new experience for the player that comes in all shapes and sizes but is always exhilarating; sometimes you look for your next corner as safe place to catch your breath. This system has been likened to an (albeit more technical) Scalextric track – how have the studio gone about ensuring variety within each different environment? Your Stage has not just provided solutions for us, but also brought its own difficulties. One of the key problems we had to solve was how to ensure we could create enough variety of corners, straights and junctions for each location that would be able to provide plenty of replayability and unique experiences for the player. To achieve this we continued to research track locations to the same standard as you’ve seen in DiRT Rally, to maintain the level of detail required for a realistic experience. This ranges from us researching the track surface and edge details through the different road shapes, through to the experiences of racing within that location and environment. The corner sequences and gameplay detail remain a high priority as with our previous titles and with Your Stage we have been able to capture many of these unique elements for the different locations. So, using Your Stage technology we are able to bring a vast quantity of the elements that make up each of these unique locations into our game for the players to experience in huge variety of different combinations. Each section of track the player experiences has been processed by our Level Design and Environment Art teams, all based on the research to maximise the detail of the player experience. This system has an almost infinite amount of combinations of track, corners, junctions, etc – how have you used this to your advantage in the game’s Career Campaign? Another wonderful thing with ‘Your Stage’ is that we now have the ability to tailor and tune our game for a much wider variety of players than ever before. Built into the Your Stage technology are two key components that allow this to happen: length of track and complexity of track. With these two adjustments we (and the player) have control over the two main factors for creating a progressive game with a learning curve. The complexity covers many internal factors such as camber, corner severity, undulation, width and more. We now have the ability to create nice short tracks with simple complexity (more straights and shallow, visible corners) – and these tracks are ideal for introducing new and less experienced players to the world of rally. With the system being completely scalable we can then ramp this up to longer, less complex stages, short complex stages, and all the way to 16km technical monsters. Under the hood there is a lot more going on, and we have a huge amount of control over many additional factors including elevation and different rule sets that allow unique track construction per location. This means we can use the same system to make Spain feel like Spain, whilst Australia is made to feel like Australia, which is completely different in terms of stage composition. All this control and flexibility has allowed us to curate the career with different tracks that allow the structure to increase the challenge as you progress and develop your skills – something we’ve not been able to do in the past. This presented its own challenges to us, but after much hard work the player should now get a much more in-depth, progressive experience from the Career Mode – as well as a colossal variety of unique tracks through the freeplay mode! What kind of work has Your Stage required from different parts of the studio to make it feel so authentic? The development of the Your Stage content has been a new and difficult challenge for all our content creators, and the results are testament to their skills, perseverance and the close communication between our various teams. From the initial designs, the crafting of road shapes and gameplay surfaces to the creation and detailing of the environment art, we have overcome many problems to create the authentic, seamless experiences. The Level Design, Environment Art and Tech teams have worked closely to achieve this and utilised mass quantities of real life research for each location. We have conquered the difficulties with some of the very specific requirements that needed to be met to achieve the Your Stage experience, and have processed more data than ever before. Integration into the different landscapes has also been a huge challenge –and this was one of the big things we needed to tackle to polish and complete the player experience. Many new techniques have been created to help – and despite initial teething problems the solutions developed are providing excellent results. As a result of the team’s innovation, their new techniques have allowed Your Stage to offer the full environmental experience for each and every track. Despite the content creation still being an expensive part of our processes we are now able to achieve a massive boost in value from our content whilst still retaining our superb attention to detail and feeling for being in a specific location. Overall, everyone in the racing studio has worked incredibly hard – and despite the challenges and problems faced, we have achieved something truly incredible. We believe Your Stage really is a game-changer for off-road racing games and there are many plans in place to further develop, improve and expand this technology. And that’s all from us this week – have lovely weekends, and we’ll see you back here soon! P. S. For the eagle-eyed amongst you, yes, I did slide a couple of new screenshots into this. Well-spotted. ;)

  5. F1 2016 è, con mia piacevole sorpresa, il primo gioco della serie in cui riesco a divertirmi e ad avere voglia di girare ancora e ancora per migliorarmi e gareggiare. Il passo avanti rispetto ai capitoli della precedente generazione è notevole e finalmente si riesce ad avere un volante con un feedback che sia qualcosa di più di una sola vibrazione sui cordoli. Per riuscire a gustarselo al meglio, posto una serie di consigli che spero possano tornare utili a chi non è abituato all'interfaccia Codemasters e quindi potrebbe trovarsi in difficoltà nel settare i principali parametri che trova negli altri sim. Driver grafici: 372.54 per nVidia FOV Gradi di rotazione F1 2016 supporta più periferiche? 1) nVidia ha rilasciato i driver 372.54 con supporto ufficiale a F1 2016. Sulla mia configurazione, dotata di scheda nVidia GTX 970, a settaggi Alti ho guadagnato circa 30 fps di media nel benchmark di gioco. Per una installazione pulita consiglio quanto segue (riservata ad utenti esperti: si declina ogni responsabilità in caso di danni al computer per un uso improprio della seguente guida). Scaricare i driver ufficiali dal sito nVidia Scaricare Display Driver Uninstaller ed estrarlo in una cartella a piacere, possibilmente sul Desktop Premere Win + R sulla tastiera, digitare msconfig e premere Ok Scegliere la tab Opzioni di avvio, quindi aggiungere il flag a Modalità provvisoria -> Minima Riavviare il PC, inserire la password completa (non il pin, se richiesta) e aprire la cartella in cui si è estratto Display Driver Uninstaller Avviare l'eseguibile Display Driver Uninstaller e scegliere il pulsante Clean and restart Al riavvio del PC, installare i driver scaricare in precedenza. Per una installazione pulita consiglio di selezionare la modalità Custom, aggiungere la spunta alla casella Effettua una installazione pulita (ATTENZIONE! Eliminerà eventuali profili creati in precedenza) e scegliere solo gli elementi che servono tra quelli proposti (in particolare, lasciare solo il driver selezionato obbligatoriamente ed aggiungere PhysX; aggiungete GeForce Experience se utilizzate ShadowPlay per registrare le sessioni di gioco, mentre deselezionate le voci legate al 3D se non ne fate uso) 2) Già da F1 2015 è finalmente possibile regolare il FOV dall'interno del gioco, senza dover più modificare a mano file di configurazione o altro. A differenza di altri sim, dove possiamo impostare il valore preciso che desideriamo, F1 2016 ci offre un settaggio vicino a quanto era possibile fare nella serie Race dei SimBin. Avviate il gioco e aprite il menu delle opzioni Selezionate Opzioni grafiche, quindi Opzioni telecamera Modificate il valore Campo visivo a piacere: valori negativi vi porteranno ad avere una visuale più corretta in termini di proporzioni e valutazione delle distanze, valori positivi favoriranno una migliore visione degli specchietti, a discapito però del realismo. 3) F1 2016 è pensato per essere utilizzato con una rotazione dello sterzo di 360 gradi. Se avete un volante Logitech potete impostare tale valore nel profiler, così che sia impostato automaticamente ad ogni avvio. Con le altre periferiche di guida, invece, se non volete cambiare manualmente ogni volta i gradi, impostate quanto segue. Avviate il gioco e aprite il menu delle opzioni Selezionate Personalizza Comandi, quindi Impostazioni avanzate volante Impostare la saturazione dello sterzo su 63 per i volanti con 900 gradi, 72 per i volanti con 1080 gradi 4) F1 2016 supporta più periferiche. Non so il limite massimo, personalmente ne utilizzo tre (Fanatec GT2, Clubsport Pedals V1, Formula Rim moddato) e tutte vengono assegnate correttamente all'interno del menu controlli. Al momento (v1.2.0) alcuni controlli vengono indicati come ERRORE dopo averli assegnati e le rispettive funzioni non compaiono nelle spiegazioni a schermo: utilizzate la tastiera e i tasti funzione per spostarvi nei menu, fino a quando non avrete capito a che tasti corrispondono sul vostro controller. Effettuate una sessione di guida con solo la tastiera per capire con esattezza a cosa corrisponde ciascun comando nella rispettiva descrizione a fondo pagina.
  6. La Codemasters ci propone oggi una nuova puntata del suo Road Book dedicato al prossimo DiRT 4: questa volta andiamo ad analizzare tutti gli aspetti che riguardano il team management. It’s Road Book time! On today’s agenda is one thing, and one thing only – and that’s DiRT 4. A few weeks back we asked you what you wanted to know about; in the last Road Book we gave you the lowdown on landrush, and this week’s specialist topic is… *drum-roll* Team Management! Yup – this week’s update is dedicated to the inner workings of your very own race team; how you hire and fire your staff, branding your vehicles with your own livery and sponsorship deals, and improving your facilities so you can expand your team’s impact and performance. A few of you eagle-eyed players have also noticed in the HUD that we are clocking your vehicle’s mileage too… Well, it’s all linked to your garage and how you buy and sell your collection of cars. We’ll cover off those details in this too, as it’s all connected! So sit back, relax, grab a cup of your favourite beverage, and hear all about our brand new Team Management system.
  7. Nel video qui sotto, Sutil69, tester che ha avuto l'occasione di provare il nuovo F1 2017 Codemasters, ci racconta la fisica del gioco.
  8. Ormai da una settimana sono iniziati i test pre stagione della Formula 1, cosi anche la Codemasters ha iniziato i propri test in pista (virtuale) per il suo prossimo F1 2017, il gioco con licenza ufficiale FIA Formula 1. La software house inglese ha quindi invitato presso la propria sede un discreto numero di appassionati testers, che hanno provato una versione beta del software, con le vetture graficamente del 2016, ma con gomme e fisica delle monoposto aggiornata alle nuove regole 2017. A questo link trovate il resoconto completo della giornata in Codemasters, che ha raccolto moltissimi suggerimenti ed indicazioni dai testers, che si sono ovviamente divertiti come matti! Molto interessante è il resoconto in video che ci viene raccontato in italiano da Sutil69, uno dei fortunati selezionati per la giornata. Last week was a very good week, as the brand new F1 cars hit the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya for their first spin out on track this year. It wasn’t just the real-life cars that were being put through their paces, of course – you may have seen that we had some VIP playtesters visit Codies HQ to put their virtual counterparts to the test… but more on that later! The second week of testing is underway, and it’s Williams on top of the timesheets, with both Massa and Vettel driving over 100 laps in the first day. For those of you who missed the first pre-season test of the year, though, we thought we’d give you a whirlwind recap of what happened out on track...

    Vi abbiamo parlato tempo fa in questo articolo della nuova opzione Your Stage presente nel prossimo DiRT 4. Dopo averci mostrato un video di anteprima dedicato al suo prossimo titolo rallystico, con protagonisti persino Petter Solberg e Kris Meeke (che collaborano allo sviluppo), oggi la Codemasters tramite il blog ci presenta la nuova modalità denominata Landrush, che ha per protagonisti in pista i divertenti dune buggy!

    Vi abbiamo parlato un paio di giorni fa in questo articolo della nuova opzione Your Stage presente nel prossimo DiRT 4. Oggi la Codemasters ci presenta un nuovo video di anteprima dedicato al suo prossimo titolo rallystico: oltre ad ammirare vari momenti di gioco, scopriamo cosa ne pensano Petter Solberg e Kris Meeke (che collaborano allo sviluppo), mentre Paul Coleman ci mostra graficamente come si creano i tracciati. Codemasters ha inoltre annunciato che DiRT 4 avrà una Day One Edition, con l'esclusiva Hyundai R5, un evento speciale e l'icona del fondatore. Sono inoltre previste due edizioni speciali: la prima con i contenuti della Day One Edition e il Team Booster Pack (che prevede un ingegnere esclusivo, un team unico e attrezzature tecniche bonus), mentre la seconda avrà una Steelbook in edizione limitata, comprensiva dei contenuti della Day One Edition. Il campione della FIA World Rallycross Petter Solberg, ed il pilota di rally Kris Meeke, sono entrambi coinvolti nello sviluppo di DiRT 4 e danno la loro opinione sul nuovo sistema di creazione dello stage nell'ultimo video dedicato a Your Stage. Your Stage ti permette di creare un numero infinito di stage unici con il solo tocco di un pulsante in DiRT 4. Basta solo selezionare una delle 5 location rally del gioco (Australia, Spagna, Michigan, Svezia & Galles), scegliere un orario della giornata e le condizioni climatiche. Regola la lunghezza e la complessità del percorso utilizzando i cursori prima di generare il tuo stage completamente unico. Se non sei soddisfatto, basta premere Genera di nuovo per crearne un altro. Ora è possibile gareggiare, condividerlo e sfidare i tuoi amici. Paul Coleman, Chief Game Designer di DiRT 4, ha commentato: "Your Stage è un aspetto su cui abbiamo lavorato dal lancio di DiRT 3 nel 2011. Permette ai giocatori di generare una varietà quasi infinita di stage per tutte le location di rally presenti in DiRT 4. E' un grande passo avanti in quanto d'ora in poi i giocatori proveranno il brivido di guidare un nuovo stage ogni volta ache vogliono." "E 'estremamente semplice creare uno stage, ma, dietro le quinte, c'è una serie straordinariamente complessa di regole e algoritmi per mettere insieme questi percorsi. Your Stage crea una grande varietà di stage, che non avremmo mai pensato di realizzare prima e sono incredibili da guidare."
  11. A fine Gennaio la Codemasters ha annunciato a sorpresa la novità DiRT 4, lanciando proprio ieri la possibilità di pre ordinare il gioco, che sarà disponibile da Giugno, tramite lo store ufficiale (non ancora su Steam, ma lo sarà a breve). Una breve intervista agli sviluppatori inglesi è molto utile per comprendere in dettaglio una delle nuove opzioni che saranno presenti nel gioco: la modalità Your Stage. Your Stage è in pratica uno strumento che permette all'utente di creare il proprio tracciato personale ed ovviamente rappresenta una novità destinata a cambiare i giochi di rally di Codemasters in modo radicale, considerando anche il fatto che tutti i titoli della casa inglese hanno sempre sofferto il ridotto numero di tappe ed ambientazioni disponibili. Cosi si è espresso il senior producer Clive Moody: “In realtà stiamo pensando a Your Stage fin dall’uscita di Dirt 3 nel 2011, ma solo ora, dopo diversi prototipi, siamo riusciti a realizzarlo veramente. Penso sia una novità epocale per noi e che rappresenti al tempo stesso l’inizio di qualcosa di grande”. Your Stage è un tool molto semplice da utilizzare: con due slider si controllano la lunghezza del tracciato e la sua complessità. Una volta posizionati, sarà il gioco stesso a generare il percorso tramite un processo quasi istantaneo. Ovvio che se il risultato non piace, lo si può modificare. Con il tool inoltre, si possono gestire anche le condizioni atmosferiche e altri elementi della tappa. Your Stage quindi non permette al giocatore un controllo specifico sul design del tracciato, anche perché è proprio questa l'intenzione di Codemasters: se conosco in ogni metro la tappa che creo, perdo gran parte del divertimento. Lo scopo di Your Stage è di creare percorsi senza che il giocatore sappia cosa lo attende dopo un rettilineo o dopo una curva, permettendo di ottenere infinite possibilità a livello di lunghezza e variazioni del tracciato stesso. Come ha puntualizzato il chief game designer Paul Coleman, che ha corso nel ruolo di co-pilota, il bello di questo sport si perde se, dopo aver percorso più volte lo stesso tracciato, lo si finisce con il conoscerlo a memoria. Effettivamente Your Stage funziona egregiamente, tanto che i percorsi creati sembrano realizzati dagli stessi sviluppatori, invece che da un programma procedurale: “Sono sicuro che se avessimo avuto tempo a volontà e risorse infinite, avremmo fatto tutto manualmente come sempre, ma Your Stage lo fa al posto nostro e il risparmio in termini di denaro e ore è semplicemente enorme”. DiRT 4 fornirà cinque diverse ambientazioni, ognuna delle quali supporterà Your Stage: nel gioco troveremo Fitzroy (Australia), Michigan (USA), Tarragona (Spagna), Värmland (Svezia) e Powys (Galles). Come si nota, saranno assenti dal gioco molte ambientazioni apprezzatissime dei precedenti DiRT, questo perchè non era possibile semplicemente inserirle in DiRT 4 e integrarle in Your Stage: “Magari fosse stato così semplice. Non si tratta solo di una questione di licenze, ma anche del fatto che con il nuovo sistema di illuminazione del gioco abbiamo svolto un lavoro già enorme per adattare ad esempio gli alberi del tracciato gallese perché riflettessero le luci nel modo giusto: e si tratta solo di alberi e non di tutti gli elementi dello scenario”. Codemasters conferma inoltre che in DiRT 4 è stato ottimizzato il livello di difficoltà, dimostratosi troppo elevato in DiRT Rally, che rendeva il gioco a tratti frustrante per i giocatori occasionali. “Ecco perché con Dirt 4 abbiamo voluto riprendere la formula di gioco di Dirt Rally rendendola però più appetibile per un pubblico più ampio e non solo per gli hardcore gamer. Attenti, non sto dicendo che abbiamo reso tutto più semplice e banale. Chi infatti preferisce un’esperienza dura e tosta in stile Dirt Rally potrà averla semplicemente modificando alcune impostazioni di gioco. Ce ne saranno essenzialmente due. Una meno punitiva per i giocatori alle prime armi e una più impegnativa e realistica che non perdonerà davvero nulla”, ha precisato Coleman. Come modalità di gioco troveremo anche la già nota Landrush e il campionato World Rallycross. Nella prima si gareggia in tracciati più brevi del solito a bordo di veicoli particolari come Pro Buggies, Pro-2 e Pro-4 Trucks e Crosskart. Il World RX Championship, già presente in Dirt Rally, è stato espanso e migliorato tra le categorie RX SuperCars, Super1600 e Gruppo B. Dirt 4 avrà anche una modalità Carriera, che ci porterà dall’essere una semplice “recluta” nella Dirt Academy (basata sulla DirtFish Rally School di Washington) fino a diventare campione del mondo. In questa modalità ci dovremo preoccupare anche degli sponsor, piloti e l’acquisto di auto nuove e usate, modifiche ai motori e alle auto, con modelli nuovi e storici che i veri fans del rally sapranno apprezzare in ogni dettaglio. Le intenzioni di Codemasters sono quelle di "sbancare" con DiRT 4, dopo che, a loro dire, DiRT Rally non aveva portato i volumi di vendite sperati, forse perchè apparso come un titolo in fase di prototipo e non come un prodotto finito al 100%. Speriamo quindi che l'opzione fun ed hardcore presente in DiRT 4 funzioni davvero, altrimenti si venderanno probabilmente tantissime copie, ma i veri appassionati della derapata guideranno altrove... Commenti sul forum dedicato.

    Dopo l'update per DiRT Rally che, fra le altre cose, introduce il supporto per il visore PlayStation VR e l'annuncio della novità DiRT 4, la Codemasters ritorna ad aggiornarci tramite il suo blog sui lavori in corso attualmente. Partiamo dall'interessante intervista fatta al Dialogue Producer, Olly Johnson, che si occupa appunto dei dialoghi in game, inclusa la voce del navigatore, eccovene un estratto: When it comes to DiRT 4, how do you go about getting the most authentic representation of each discipline? First thing is the casting process. We knew we wanted Nicky Grist back, and Neil Cole as our RX Spotter is still great. We’ve taken on board over the years that the “dude-bro” voiceover grates and puts a lot of people off; we will never avoid having US voices, but the tone and the script is much more in tune with a more realistic interpretation of the more extreme sports. We have Jen Horsey back from Dirt 3, so you will be able to have her as you co-driver if you want, and for the most extreme mode, Landrush, our spotter sounds more like John Goodman than Bill & Ted. He’s the calm voice in the storm. Landrush is so much fun by the way. Passiamo poi all'intervista di Jen Horsey, ovvero colei che presta appunto la sua voce a quella del copilota virtuale ed ascolteremo nella nuova modalità DirtFish Rally School presente in DiRT 4: DirtFish Rally School features in the new game, DiRT 4 – why’s it such a good place to learn how to drive? Rally driving is a unique skill: you’re dealing with a whole bunch of variables in a rally scenario that you wouldn’t find at a race track. For one thing, we race in every kind of weather and on every imaginable surface. We also put a lot of value on the teamwork between driver and co-driver. And those are skills that are best learned in a closed environment that safely simulates real-world conditions and is unpredictable, in one sense, but also creates repeatable scenarios so you can learn and develop your abilities. That’s what DirtFish is and it’s a fantastic rally playground.
  13. A quanto pare la serie DiRT di Codemasters torna - a sorpresa - solo su PC, almeno in questa particolare versione apparsa in queste ore sull'Accesso Anticipato di Steam: il nuovo DiRT Rally è infatti disponibile in early access, acquistabile a 29,99 euro (a 26,99 euro in questo momento grazie allo sconto del 10%). Si tratta di un arrivo a sorpresa, indubbiamente, visto che un nuovo DiRT aleggiava da tempo nell'aria ma non era stato ancora annunciato nulla di ufficiale da parte del publisher. Codemasters ha deciso di percorrere la strada dell'Accesso Anticipato per il nuovo capitolo, affidandosi anche alla community per ricevere feedback e suggerimenti su come portare avanti lo sviluppo del gioco, oltre a poter utilizzare un sistema di finanziamento indipendente prima del lancio del gioco in forma completa. Qui di seguito trovate il tipico trailer di lancio con alcuni screens in game.

  15. dirt 4

    Paul Coleman, copilota rally e Chief Game Designer della serie DiRT di Codemasters, ha risposto ad una lunga serie di domande fatte dai fans in merito al prossimo DiRT 4 della software house inglese, in arrivo a giugno. Per chi non volesse leggere l'intera sessione Q&A, possiamo sintetizzare nel modo seguente: IA e danni "molto migliorati" rispetto a DiRT Rally, con maggiori possibilità di ritiro miglioramento di fisica e aerodinamica, grazie al supporto di Kris Meeke e Petter Solberg possibile supporto alla VR, ma non al lancio supportato il modding, ma con restrizioni dovute alle licenze miglioramenti "significativi" nella simulazione rispetto DiRT Rally la modalità "your stage" (per creare i propri livelli) funziona solo nei rally e non nei rallycross nessuna early acces Steam o demo prima del lancio multiplayer per 8 giocatori contemporaneamente modalità spettatore inclusa assetti maggiormente dettagliati più di 50 vetture presenti al lancio Q. Does Dirt 4 have a more "destructible" environment compared to Dirt Rally? A. The edges of the track are more forgiving than in DiRT Rally but a lot of that actually comes from improvements in the simulation rather than making the environments more destructible. Q. How hardcore is the most hardcore damage model? A. Damage is much improved now so you should see more rally ending crashes occurring Q. Is there any chance of picking our own numbers for the cars? Or having our own names on the side windows for RX/rally? A. When you run your own team you can choose your race number in the livery branding suite. Q. Will brands like ŠKODA? or older cars like xsara, 206 in DiRT 4? A. I can't confirm many specific cars. We have been talking to those manufacturers about some of their vehicles though. Q. Does the AI have any improvements to the way they work? A. Definitely, driver character and behaviour is very important to us. You'll see a lot more interesting behaviour in the Landrush and Rallycross too. Q. How will the optimization for the game be on PC? A. We will be aiming to support as much hardware as we can in the time available. I can't really give much more detail than that at this stage. Q. Do cars in Dirt 4 have a more noticeable weight transfer than in DR? A. Yes, Kris Meeke and Petter really helped us dial in the feeling and the cars are much improved now. Q. Will there be hot seat local multiplayer? A. Its something we have designed but we don't know if it will make the cut yet. I can't promise it. Q. Thoughts on mods for Dirt 4? Will it be allowed to happen, and if so, will you do anything to help people who mod the game for non-malicious purposes? A. We'll be allowing mods where we can but we have to be careful with what we allow access to for licensing reasons. Q. Do you know anything about Polish translation of the game? A. We don't know yet Q. Why can't you add locations from Dirt Rally to Dirt 4? Of course they would not have option of generate new track (Your Stage), but they will add some diversity to the locations. For example Monte Carlo A. Its a licensing thing Q. Will we have splitscreen? A. Not for DiRT 4 but we know a lot of people want it Q. Do you plan to make Special Edition, like for the final release of DR with movie about Colin’s career? A. Yes more details of that will be coming soon Q. How simulation-focused is Dirt 4 going to be? A. If you want sim then it’s a significant improvement on DiRT Rally. Q. Will we get more rally and rally cross locations as dlc in the future? A. We haven't made any decisions about DLC yet. We are focussing on getting the game done. We will have mixed surfaces within the Locations that we have but they won't be as severe as Ice to Dry Tarmac like in Monte Q. Can you explain the lack of communication regarding Vive support? A. We haven't made any decisions on VR at all for DiRT 4. If we can find a way we will support Vive but it needs to work for the business. Q. Will there be a Photo Mode and will there be any an Perks for The PS4 Pro owners, like visual upgrades or higher frames? A. We have a design for a Photo Mode but whether it makes the final cut is going to depend on how the rest of the development goes. As for PS Pro we are looking at doing HDR and because we have good experience working with high end PC there are a number of areas where we can make graphical improvements. Q. Although I'm a sim guy, I was a very big fan of the DiRT 3 party modes. (Outbreak, Transport,ect) These were very fun and addictive modes to play with friends, will we see something similar in DiRT 4? A. We've got some cool Joyride Modes lined up in the rally school open area but at the moment these aren't going to feature online. I did love those modes though so there is always a chance we can do them in the future. Q. I really liked the non-licensed soundtracks in the GRID and DiRT games, especially the menu and replay music. Will this be returning in Dirt 4 or will it have a licensed soundtrack? Furthermore, I'd like to ask if there will be PvP rally stages, with ghosts or even a starting grid with spacing. And, will the PvP rallycross be hidden away until later stages of the game as in DiRT Rally? I found it too hard/take too long to get to. A. It’s a licensed soundtrack this time. Grid was actually licensed but it was composed for the game. There will be PvP Rally. You'll race at the same time but you won't see Ghosts. PvP Rallycross will be available quicker with more beginner classes available. PvP Rallycross will be available quicker with more beginner classes available. Q. What's been the most exciting feature that you guys have enjoyed implementing and can't wait to see how we react to it? A. Definitely Your Stage. Its been something I've wanted to put in a DiRT Game for ages and its better than I ever dreamed it could be. Q. Any support for DirectX 12 or Vulkan planned? A. Not for DX12 - we don't know about Vulkan yet Q. Will the track generator work for rally cross maps as well? A. No, its stage rally only Q. What about mod support in DIRT 4? Also is there any chance to see newest gen WRC cars A. We'll support Mods where we can. No new gen WRC cars because of licensing. We'll have R5 cars as our top class. Q. Can you give us some more information on the location characteristics? A. Australia - Heavy / Medium gravel, Wales - Heavy / Medium Wet gravel, Sweden - Frozen Gravel with Snow and Ice Spain - Smooth and broken tarmac, Michigan - Light Gravel and Dirt Q. Can you set a sim handling for all the cars including the buggies and trucks, or is it only for rally and rallycross? A. Its for all the cars and trucks in the game Q. Will we see an Early Access on Steam for Dirt 4 like there was with Dirt Rally? A. There are no plans for Early Access because we have already gone past that point in development. EA was perfect for DiRT Rally as we had a lot to tweak with the simulation. With DiRT 4 we are building on that foundation. Q. Will there be a demo before june? A. It's unlikely we will have a demo. Q. Will Steam Workshop integration continue for DiRT 4? A. I can't promise it just yet but I would like it to continue. Q. How's multiplayer for rally stages going to work? A. Get into an 8 player lobby and race against other players simultaneously. We've got some spectator slots and you'll be able to save event formats so that you can have quicker turnarounds of events when you are hosting. Q. Will there be splitscreen modes? A. No plans for splitscreen in DiRT 4, sorry. We know people want it though so hopefully we can support in future Q. How improved is the damage model? A. The damage model is improved with more stuff that can go wrong with the car. There will be shakedowns but no full recce mode. Q. Will we see different options for recording and saving replays in DiRT 4 ? A. We are improving our replays but saving and recording are things that the consoles and third party software handles better than we ever could. Freecam is a cool idea and one I would like to see but we need to do a lot of work to support it so it is unlikely for DiRT 4. Q. When playing online will all the players be forced to use the same handling difficulty? If not, how will the two difficulties be balanced? A. It depends on the host settings. We won't be balancing the two we will be keeping them separate unless players specifically ask to play together Q. Codemasters has made such a fantastic VR implementation for Dirt Rally, wouldn't it be rather simple to apply this feature to Dirt 4? Could you give some idea of the effort it would involve? A. We are focusing on getting the game finished at the moment – we’ll look into VR once that is done. It's a lot of effort to get a game VR-ready, especially when you're offering the whole game in VR (as we do with DiRT Rally), so it's something we will look at after launch. Q. Are you planning to realease arcade game like DiRT 2? A. The idea with DiRT 4 is that it is more accessible to players but I don't think it fits calling it Arcade. DiRT 2 was great fun but it was still grounded in realism and wasn't a full arcade. Q. Are there any specific improvements to the simulation aspects first seen in DiRT Rally? Can something like telemetry be incorporated into these kind of titles? A. Aerodynamics has seen a big update across the board making the cars feel more planted at speed. It will also stop them behaving strangely when airborne. This also has a dramatic effect on how they crash with more convincing rolls. We've improved the way we model our suspension geometry. This means you should see more character between the Rear Wheel drive cars based on the type of suspension they are using. We don't know about exposing telemetry yet. If we did it I'd like to make sure it was the best it could be. Q. What cars can we expect? A. I can't give specific car details but here are the car classes: MODERN RALLY R5 Up to 2000cc (4WD) NR4/R4 Group A F2 Kit Car R2 HISTORIC RALLY Group B (4WD) Group B (RWD) H3 (RWD) H2 (RWD) H2 (FWD) H1 (FWD) RALLYCROSS RX Supercars RX Lites Group B (Rallycross) RX Super 1600 Crosskart LANDRUSH Stadium Truck (4WD) Stadium Truck (RWD) Stadium Buggy Q. Will there be crazy car + track combinations in multiplayer like in Dirt 2? A. Due to licenses and terms of our licenses, this is unlikely unfortunately. Q. Are there any plans for a parts store in the game to go get better, high performance parts to increase car performance?? A. You can add parts that are more durable so you stay faster for longer. Q. What modes will be included? A. Your Stage features in all competitive Rally modes. In Pro Tour (Ranked PVP), the server has set parameters for stage generation e.g. rallies get harder as you climb the ladder In Jam Session (Custom PVP) you can create public or private lobbies and create your own rallies with Your Stage, creating new stages while the lobby is active or by loading your favourites. You can join a lobby as both a Spectator and a Broadcaster. Community Events (Dailies, Weeklies, Monthlies) will generate new stages for each event. The Delta Daily will return and feature stages from the career mode for you to compete against the community average time. Clubs (re-named from Leagues) allow you to create your own asynchronous rallies by generating stages on DiRT4game.com. You won't be able to change tires unfortunately, we'll pick the most suitable set for you. Q. Will there be the option like in DiRT 2 to set any cars to go all at once down a rally stage next to each other (without being ghost cars)? A. No plans for this as our stages aren't wide enough to support it. Sorry Q. What can you tell us about the Rally cars included in DiRT 4 besides the Fiesta R5, Subaru WRX STI NR4, Evo VI, Peugeot 205? A. Not a whole lot as we are still negotiating with the manufacturers. There are some cool additions though. Q. Will DiRT 4 implement separate rendering mode on 3 monitors? A. We don't know yet Q. Are there going to be real/handmade stages in parallel with Your Stage, or is everything procedural? A. Everything is procedural for Rally Stages. The level designers do everything they always did but they are making pieces of stage now instead of the whole thing. Your Stage brings it all together Q. Seeing as DiRT is becoming the definitive Rally car game can we see a more diverse selection of cars? Like the Nissan 200sx S12 rally car or Toyota Celica gt-four st185? Or even more obscure rally cars? Also will there be dynamic weather changes? A. The selection will grow. There are more modern cars coming to DiRT 4 as well as a few historics. Q. What is the ballpark longest stage that can be made? A. 12-13km at the moment Q. Gymkhana? A. We've got some cool Joyride Modes lined up in the rally school open area, with time challenges and smash the block challenges, so you'll still get a flavour of that kind of stuff in DiRT 4. Q. What features will you have when managing your own team? A. Staff hiring and firing Sponsorship Livery Editing Facilities to improve your team Multi Car Garages Q. Do you have plans about bringing more competitive things to this game? A. Yes! We have a Competitive area of the game featuring the Daily, Weekly, and Monthly challenges from DiRT Rally. We also have Pro Tour making a return for ranked PVP, with a more competitive ranking system. You can now get relegated based on your performance, rather than grinding our XP. We also have fully customisable private lobbies so you can push your competitive streak as hard as you like. Q. What sort of new features are coming to the leagues? A. We've re-named them to Clubs for a start! We've brought Championship / Event / Stage messaging more in-line with the main game so "Leagues" didn't really make sense any more. Here are some new features: Improved event creation and curation on DiRT4game.com. Full Your Stage integration (generate stages on website, with on-the-fly spline graphics! Hidden Points Custom penalties Brand new, scalable scoring system to support tiny Clubs, huge *Clubs, and everything in-between. ...oh, and they're Cross Platform. Q. Will there be multi class rallies? A. Yes, multi class rallies Your road position depends on your results Q. Will the changes to the sim handling have a significant effect on the playability with a controller? A. The sim handling for DiRT 4 is evolved from the handling we had in DiRT Rally, so you will have just as much fun playing DiRT 4 with a controller. Q. Do you intend on putting "nfected" in the game again? A. No plans at this stage but we might do something like that in future. Q. Are we able to spectate PVP Rally (and rallycross) sessions? A. Yep we'll have spectate in all of our disciplines in PVP. We're also adding the option to join a lobby as a Broadcaster, which lets you watch the whole of a session from various replay camera angles while hiding the HUD. Q. Are the Group B rallycross cars the proper big wings/big turbos rallycross specials? A. They are proper now! Q. Will we have separate difficulty levels for both arcade and sim modes? A. Yes, although the difficulty presets carry across both handling models the AI times are adjusted accordingly. Q. Any chance of a few tracks for the landrush trucks that are in the style of the SST series? Even as a possible DLC later? A. No sorry, we've focused on the Shortcourse dirt track style. Q. Any chances to see additional RX tracks as DLC in the future? A. We haven't decided about DLC yet. Q. What kind of updates have been made to the vehicle tuning system in DiRT 4? A. Setups have a bit more detail. We also have some better tuning guides. Q. Regarding the replay system, can we get manual camera placements on the car at least? A. We won't be doing manual camera placement for replays although its something we may consider in future. Q. Alpha dithering of ground cover and trees, particularly on AMD cards. Has this been addressed? A. We know there is an issue with those cards and we have updated how we have made our trees so hopefully this will help. Q. Can we expect to see more Hill Climb maps and vehicles available? A. Hillclimb won't be making it to DiRT 4, but we've introduced a couple of new disciplines and game modes. Q. Steering wheel rotation? Will there be 360+ degree rotation with hand over animation? A. We have hand over hand animations now. Q. will there be more water splashes? A. Yes we have water splashes in a few locations Q. What are the longest and shortest rally stages possible to generate? A. At the moment it is between 1 and 13km Q. Can we get a minimum account of the number of cars we are to get in the game? A. We can't confirm the list yet, but we have over 50 Q. Will there be alternative tyre choices available for any of the cars? A. We change the tyres for you based on the optimum for the conditions. This is somthing we'd like to do better but I think its one for the future Q. Any plans to have cross play between Xbox One and PC? A. Not for PVP, but all of our leaderboards (permanent and asynchronous) are Cross Platform between Xbox One, PlayStation, and Steam. Q. You took a big risk bringing out a full-simulation title (in DR). Was there an element of "I told you so" on your part after it all went well? Would you say that the people who make the decisions at Codemasters are now convinced that the full-sim crowd is a big enough market to be worth catering to? A. We are really happy with how DiRT Rally has been recieved and it has given us a new found confidence to deliver an even bigger and better game with DiRT 4. We are going to be supporting the sim side of things a lot more now. Q. Will DiRt 4 be more addictive, or different than previous rally games? A. It will have a much more interesting career mode that should get you a bit more excited about coming back and playing more. Q. Can we expect seat driver position options in D4 A. There should be seat position options Q. What about lights damage? in DiRT Rally if you damage your lights both stops work, can we expect "localized" damage on lights? A. Lights are more localised Q. Can I expect the East Asian language? A. Its undecided at this point but we are talking about supporting some Q. Xbox One version 60fps? Unlocked or locked? A. 60 fps Locked Q. Any chance for a option to have Richard Burns style descriptive pacenotes? A. We are sticking with the McRae system as it is the most familiar to our fans. Q. Can you confirm that DiRT 4 will keep DiRT Rally's satisfyingly challenging handling model and keep the more hardcore fans satisfied? A. I can confirm that its better than it was in DiRT Rally. Aerodynamics has seen a big update across the board making the cars feel more planted at speed. It will also stop them behaving strangely when airborne. This also has a dramatic effect on how they crash with more convincing rolls. We've improved the way we model our suspension geometry. This means you should see more character between the Rear Wheel drive cars based on the type of suspension they are using. Q. Is rallycross going to be split into 2 groups like DiRT Rally? A. Rallycross has same format has but has some improvments where you can choose heat or semi final/final style. Q. Is there going to be any way to share set-ups on console? A. Yes, you can share setups on console now Q. How will DiRT 4 feel in terms of racing in various gamemodes like rally versus racing in landrush? A. The simulation is consistent across the game so Landrush is as simulation as Rally its just that the vehicles are different. Q. Easier way to check your best times against global times? A. You can view leaderboards in Event Configuration before you load in. They'll be on the website too Q. Will the game take full advantage of the PS4 Pro? Will there be 4k HDR etc? A. For PS Pro we are looking at doing HDR and because we have good experience working with high-end PCs there are a number of areas where we can make graphical improvements Q. DiRT 4 WRC cars? r5? s2000? A. We've got R5s and some World Cars from 10+ years ago. Q. Will the gravel on a track change dynamically? A. We have focussed on Your Stage track generation for DiRT 4. I would love to do Surface Degradation in the future. Q. Will Dirt 4 feature long championships like Dirt Rally did? A. Yes, towards the end of the career there are some really big events. Q. Will D4 have driving aids? A. We will have some assists for those players who need some help with the cars. Q. Will the more arcade options make for a driving experience very similar to that of Dirt 3, or will it still be more of a simulator? A. The aim is to give players like you a more accessible handling model so that you can get on and play the game without having to learn how to handle the simulation Fonte Racedepartment

  18. La Codemasters ha pubblicato alcune immagini ed un video realizzati alla recente presentazione stampa del suo nuovo DiRT 4, alla quale hanno partecipato come partners tecnici anche Playseat (postazioni di guida) e Thrustmaster (volanti e pedaliere). Particolarità interessante è stata la presenza di piloti reali ad un certo livello rallystico, come Petter Solberg e Kris Meeke, immortalati appunto anche alla guida del gioco. Playseat at the DiRT 4 announcement event! We partnered up with Codemasters and Koch Media for the official announcement event of DiRT 4! During a big press event with a massive Playseat® simulator line up, it was announced that multi-million selling off-road DiRT franchise returns on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC in June 2017! The Playseat® Sensation PRO racing chairs helped to set the tone of DiRT 4 being Bigger, Better and Bolder than ever before. The game features buggies, trucks, rally, rallycross and a game changer for racing! We are definitely looking forward to this new DiRT game which promises to be an awesome new edition in the succesful franchise! Among the special guests present at the DiRT 4 announcement event were professional rallycross drivers Petter Solberg and Kris Meeke! They are involved with the development of the game and after the announcement and presentation of the game, it was time for Solberg and Meeke to show their virtual racing skills. Seated on a Playseat® Sensation PRO with motion system they experienced how realistic and fun racing games can be and clearly enjoyed it!
  19. Non si vedeva un aggiornamento per F1 2016 addirittura da ottobre scorso, ma oggi la Codemasters rende felici tutti i suoi fans della Formula 1 rilasciando una nuova patch correttiva che si preoccupa in particolare di risolvere un bug che si presentava dopo il cambio gomme al box. Nel comunicato, che trovate integralmente qui sotto, la casa inglese segnala anche il prossimo arrivo di notizie fresche sul suo prossimo F1 2017... Hi all, thanks for your patience with us whilst we looked into the issue with tyre wear being incorrect following a pit stop. We know that this has been affecting most, if not all of you, and especially multiplayer leagues so we’ve endeavoured to find a fix for it. The good news is that we’re confident that we have now identified the problem and fixed it. Our QA team have verified the fix, however, because it required a change to a core system used by many aspects of the game, we were looking for as many people as possible to download the beta patch on Steam to try it and feedback to us before we roll the official patch out on all platforms. Since the development team are now hard at work on the next game, this is the last patch which will be made available for F1 2016, and the patch is solely aimed at addressing this one issue. We're happy to report that after reviewing your feedback on the patch, it's now going live on all platforms (PS4, Xbox One and PC) from 3pm GMT 31/01/2017. If you have downloaded the beta patch, Steam will realise you've got the correct build, so there's no need to do anything. Finally, as we start to look forward to this year, thank you to all of you. Make sure you keep an eye out, as we'll be giving you some more news very soon.
  20. La Codemasters non perde tempo con il suo nuovo DiRT 4: dopo l'annuncio ufficiale, con trailer di lancio ed alcuni screens, ecco pubblicato già oggi il primo "road book" dedicato al gioco, con alcune immagini inedite. Introducing DiRT 4 DiRT 4 is about the adrenaline, the thrill, and the danger of off-road racing. It’s about embracing the unknown as you go flat out into blind corners on the side of a cliff, or seeing how much air you can get in a truck, or going for a gap that’s just that little bit too small for your vehicle. It’s about driving forward in the face of adversity, as fast as you can. That flat-out attitude is what separates the players from the real racers – those brave few who will do anything to shave a second or two off their time. This is a game for those who strive for speed and thrive on the edge. This is DiRT 4… And we get the feeling you’re going to love it. DiRT 4 also provides you the most personal DiRTy experience yet. We know that DiRT Rally had a steep learning curve, so we’ve introduced the DirtFish Rally School, where you can practice your Scandinavian Flicks and tweak your car set-ups. Our brand new and insanely cool tech, Your Stage (more on that later), has also allowed us to implement stages along the fully-fleshed-out Career Mode which increase in technicality and complexity the further up the ladder you get. But that’s not all Your Stage can do… So, this is big: Your Stage technology also provides you the tools to generate your own stages. At the push of a button, you can specify what kind of stage you want – location, long, short, complex, straight-forward, night-time, sunset, rainy, whatever – the choice is all yours. And once you hit that button, you have a completely unique stage created to your own personal spec. This is a stage you’ll be able to take time and time again, share with your friends and the DiRT Community, and even use it with league and PvP functionality. And with over a billion different combinations of stage at your disposal, the possibilities are near endless. It’s absolutely mega, and I don’t use that word lightly. You guys were very vocal about wanting more content for DiRT Rally, and DiRT 4 is bigger, better and bolder in every way. With Your Stage, you have a near-infinite amount of stages across 5 different environments, including classics like Wales and Sweden, but brand-new locations like Australia, Michigan and Spain. We’ve expanded our Rallycross content too, with classes including RX2, WRX Supercars and Group B – and we’ve expanded our RX circuit line-up from DiRT Rally with the addition of Montalegre RX and Loheac RX. THEN, we have Landrush – which lets you razz around wildly fun buggies and big ass trucks across a series of jump-laden circuits in North America. And then rounding off this insanely cool package of disciplines comes brand-new Joyride, which sees the DirtFish Rally School double as a playground. As well as a free-play space, you’ll be able to tackle Laptime challenges and Smash challenges, with the ability to trade challenges and times with your friends. For those of you who loved some of the stuff we had in DiRT 3, this is donuts without the DudeBro. We’ve got an extra-special DiRT Show coming up next week which we filmed at our incredible announcement event yesterday, complete with capture and some very special guests, so stay tuned for that. But anyway, that’s enough from me. It gives me great pleasure to hand over to everyone’s favourite Chief Game Designer and real-life rally co-driver, Paul Coleman: Over to the studio I want to start by apologising to everyone in the community for how quiet I have been. Over the last few months I’ve been setting some time aside to read what you have all been saying but I haven’t really been saying much. Hopefully the announcement that we have been hard at work making DiRT 4 explains why we have been quiet for so long. I also hope that it has made it clear why we haven’t been talking about adding lots of new content into DiRT Rally. As we were working our way through Early Access on DiRT Rally we knew that there were some big changes that we needed to make to deliver the amount of tracks that you have been asking for. Your Stage is our answer to that and it is something that we have been working on as a concept since we launched DiRT 3. It wasn’t ready when were going through Early Access but your enthusiasm for DiRT Rally gave us the backing we needed to make sure that the concept became a reality. The results are simply amazing, the super secret testers that we had in late last year saw an early prototype and their feedback was incredibly positive. That coupled with the reaction we have seen over the last 24 hours proves that we have some technology that really will be a game changer for racing games. Beyond Your Stage we’ve been working on a whole suite of improvements across the game. In rally these include things like PvP support, multi-class rally events and flying finishes (where you cross the line and then have to stop at the time control). In rallycross we’ve got reaction-based start sequences that work just like you get in the FIA World RX Championships, spotters that can predict what position you’ll be in if you take the joker and a bunch of new cars and tracks (but more on that later). We’ve also got the much requested rally school, where you can learn and practise your skills and we’ve added a simpler handling model for those that have struggled with the level of simulation in DiRT Rally. That said, if you loved DiRT Rally’s simulation engine then you have nothing to fear. In fact we’ve made significant improvements to it with new aerodynamics, more accurate modelling of suspension geometry, new tyre models and better damage simulation. On top of all that we’ve made huge improvements in our lighting tech, arm over arm animation and character modelling so there is plenty to look forward to. So what’s next? Well, we’ve got plenty left to do over the coming months to get the rest of the game ready for launch, but we want to start by hearing about what you think about DiRT 4 so far. I’m looking forward to hearing from you and being able to talk about all the other exciting stuff we’ve got planned. Oh, and I hope you like the Evo VI ;) Hangin’ with Hatward Hello DiRT fans! It’s good to be back. So glad we can finally talk about what we’ve been up to. :D We were floored by the reaction to DiRT Rally and since we’ve gone dark it’s been tough reading your comments and questions about future content without being able to talk about what’s next. Paul gave you the backstory on how the technology has developed, as well as the new bells and whistles we’ve built for the new game, so I’ll fill you in how you’ll be playing with your new toys. First up we have a fully fledged career mode, where you’ll complete events and earn licenses to unlock more prestigious competitions with even greater rewards. Team management is back, but it’s not just Engineers to manage – you’ll be running your own fully fledged motorsport operation with PR Agents, Sponsors, and more. One of the most requested features for DIRT Rally was PvP, and we’re bringing it back in two different flavours. You may remember Jam Session from DiRT 3, which makes its triumphant return to provide you with all of your custom lobby needs. Also back is Pro Tour, powered by a new, truly competitive ladder and ranking system. You’ll recognise the format of our Community Events, which is the new home for your Dailies, Weeklies and Monthlies. Your Stage adds a new edge in that you can’t practice a stage for hours in Custom Event before you go for it for real. Each event is a true test of your mettle and I can’t wait to see how your mentalities shift to adapt to the new format. Once you’ve finished the events we’ve curated, you can head over to Clubs and set some up on your own terms. We’re putting stage generation code up on DiRT4game.com so you can get the composition of a rally just right before your friends take to the track. All of these modes are fully supported by both handling models, and feature Rally, Rallycross and Landrush, so whatever your game type, and whatever your skill level, we’ve got something for you. :D So, now you know the road ahead. We’ll see you on the next stage. From now… it’s game on. What do you think!?

    Con un annuncio ed un trailer pubblicati a sorpresa, Codemasters ha svelato oggi il nuovo DiRT 4, capitolo che riprende la numerazione classica della serie dopo DiRT Rally, per il quale è in arrivo un DLC dedicato alla PlayStation VR. DiRT 4 è un'evoluzione nella simulazione rallystica per il team britannico, con alcune novità interessanti, a cominciare da un sistema chiamato "Your Stage" che consente agli utenti di creare nuovi tracciati attraverso un potente editor che permette di espandere i contenuti di gioco a dismisura, scegliendo l'ambientazione ed una serie di parametri specifici. DiRT 4, nelle intenzioni di Codemasters, si pone nel mezzo fra la simulazione realistica di un DiRT Rally e il divertimento immediato di DiRT 2 e 3, senza dimenticare le fondamenta dei vari Colin McRae Rally ed aggiungendo le licenze ufficiali del FIA World Rallycross Championship. L'uscita del gioco è prevista per giugno 2017 su PC, PlayStation 4 e Xbox One. Commenti e discussioni sul forum dedicato. Yes, you read it right – DiRT 4 is coming! Today, we’re delighted to announce that DiRT 4 will fearlessly race to PS4, Xbox One and Windows PC in June 2017. Hot on the heels of 2016’s critically and commercially successful DiRT Rally, DiRT 4 takes the passion and authenticity of off-road racing to the next level, whilst also re-introducing you all to white-knuckle truck and buggy racing in Landrush. Motorsport by its very nature is dangerous – it says so on the back of the ticket. DiRT 4 is all about embracing that danger. It’s about the thrill, exhilaration and adrenaline that is absolutely vital to off-road racing. And more than that, it’s about loving that feeling. It’s about pushing flat out next to a sheer cliff drop. Going for the gap that’s slightly too small. Seeing how much air you can get in a truck. They call it ‘being fearless’ – and this is what we aim to inspire in DiRT 4. DiRT 4 features a game-changing system called Your Stage; an innovative rally route creation tool that allows you to produce an almost-infinite number of unique stages at the press of a button. You choose your location and set the route parameters, then Your Stage does the hard work to create a unique rally stage that you can race, share with your friends, and then challenge them to beat your time. Your Stage allows experienced rally players to create longer, more technical routes, whilst newcomers can create simpler shorter routes as they hone their skills. With DiRT 4, we’ve sought to combine the levels of thrill and realism from last year’s DiRT Rally with the fearless excitement, fun, and adrenaline-fuelled races previously seen in its critically acclaimed prequels DiRT 2 and DiRT 3. Featuring classic rally racing that continues to build on the foundations set by the Colin McRae Rally games, the brutal, fast-paced racing from the official FIA World Rallycross Championship, the crazy battles of racing trucks and buggies, and the outrageous fun of open events in Joyride, players will face challenges from locations that span three continents. We can’t wait to tell you more of DiRT 4, so stay tuned for the road to launch – we’ve got so much to show you.
