Dirty movie: New Colin McRae: DiRT 2 trailer

5:20 PM on 08.17.2009 // Topher Cantler

Codemasters is getting down and dirty with some hot new footage of ... ugh. Okay, look, I'm not going to do that to you. There's a new trailer for Colin McRae's DiRT 2, alright? The game looks very good. Let's knock this off. The press release after the jump has enough bad puns in it for the both of us.

The new video showcases game footage intermingling with clips of real rally, and while it isn't exactly impossible to differentiate the two, the game certainly does look nice. If the sense of speed we're seeing from outside the cars makes its way to the inside as well, we've got an exhilharating rally title on the way. I'm hoping the trailer's music isn't too indicative of what we'll be driving along to, but the car porn definitely has my attention.

 

 PRESS RELEASE
 
NEW COLIN McRAE: DiRT 2 VIDEO LAUNCHES - AND IT'S RALLY, RALLY GOOD!
Watch rally stars in their cars in the new Colin McRae: DiRT 2 video at www.dirt2game.com
Monday 17th August/... Stunning Rally gameplay and amazing real world racing footage come together as Codemasters® today launched the Colin McRae™: DiRT™2 ‘Rally Rally Good’ video, now available to view at www.dirt2game.com.

Focussing on some of the core Rally events in Colin McRae: DiRT 2, the new video captures the unique exhilaration of rally driving and includes officially licensed vehicles, such as the Mitsubishi EVO X, the Subaru Impreza STI and the Colin McRae R4, tackling dramatic stages across three continents. Real world footage also captures a new generation of off-road stars, including Ken Block, Dave Mirra and Travis Pastrana, pushing their cars to the limit.

Driven by the latest generation of the award-winning EGO™ Engine and set to deliver a peerless rally experience, Colin McRae: DiRT 2 features a revamped handling system that incorporates full weight transfer on vehicles, enabling players to perform advance rally techniques like the Scandinavian Flick. Pace notes, written by Citroen C2R2 Champion Co-Driver 2009 George Gwynn, guide players through each challenging stage, with gamers able to choose from either an American or British Co-Driver and a choice of two call systems. Staggered starts, thousands of spectators and authentic changes in terrain make for spectacular stages and prove out why rally is the pinnacle of off-road autosport.

Colin McRae: DiRT 2’s World Tour career mode lets players choose their own path through the game, whether they decide to focus on their favourite discipline or sample the full range of exciting off-road racing on offer. Set to take racing games to a new level, gamers take on over 100 stunning events, including aggressive, multi-vehicle races and intense solo challenges set in the most diverse and demanding real-world environments. From the muddy tracks of the Malaysian rainforest to spectator-packed stadiums in London and Los Angeles, racers will compete in contemporary off-road race disciplines covering Rallycross, Trailblazer, Raid, Landrush, and Rally.

Complete with full head-to-head competitive online play, get ready for the ultimate off-road competition when Colin McRae: DiRT 2 launches September 8th (US), 10th (EPAC), 11th (UK) for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft®, PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system, Wii™, Nintendo DS™ and PSP® (PlayStation®Portable) system.

Just started Pillars of Eternity and I'm elated I can play as a treeman druid! Which brings me one step closer to a game that lets me play as an Ent. Besides that walking tree simulator and WoW, are there any decent games where you can play as an Ent?

Overnight, I dreamed Destructoid existed as an old-timey collectibles shop. Quickposts graced the shelves as paintings, available for purchase; the number of faps on a post directly equaled its price. Video games and VG accessories also were up for sale.

Usually I'm not comfortable showing stuff off like this, but this is something I've been working on for college work, and it's the first thing I feel like is at least halfway worth showing.

I don't understand how my wife's students could hate her if she ordered this for the classroom's Scholastic service.

I've been listening to a lot of opera recently. I blame Cowboy Bebop and it's incredible "Ave Maria".

Omicron (2011) - From the album "From Alpha to Omega" where I wrote a song for each letter of the Greek Alphabet. The "Base" song is actually A Well-Known Stranger, but a "dance" version of it. Probably my favorite song from this album.

Went into Gamestop on my workbreak to kill a bit of time today. SMT:Devil Survivor 2 RB for €30 and Pillars of Eternity for €5 more.. As if my RPG coma couldn't get any deeper. With Numenera and the 3ds release schedule, what a great time to be an RPG

I'm still trying to understand the logic behind calling Shiren Mystery Dungeon a spinoff and linking to Pokémon Mystery Dungeon as an example of mainline.

I didn't make this, nor do I know the person who did, but this Shovel Knight remix is too good not to share around. It's of my favorite track on the OST. Those surprise vocals at the end, tho!
