Previewing a world that’s just waiting to be torn up with tyre-tracks, Codemasters® today released the Colin McRae™: DiRT™2 ‘World Tour’ video. Revealing the nine international locations that will play host to over 100 exhilarating events in the much anticipated racing game, the video is now available at www.dirt2game.com.
Colin McRae: DiRT 2 will take players on a World Tour of diverse and challenging real-world environments where they will compete in contemporary off-road events. Taking the very best of modern off-road racing as its inspiration, the World Tour delivers thrilling new race types, big event atmosphere and stunning locations.
The World Tour delivers over 100 aggressive multi-car and intense solo race events at nine stunning locations across the globe. From the inner city circuits of London, where spectacular day and night Rallycross races are held around Battersea Power Station, to Shibuya where racers compete in the mud-flooded streets of Tokyo’s city centre, the World Tour will also take drivers to open countryside.
In China rallies run past paddy fields in the Yangshuo region before hitting roads that rise up the cone-shaped mountains. The mountainous coast of Croatia provides a test of control as stages traverse tight hillside hairpin sections.
The World Tour will also take travellers to the open roads of Morocco, where stages pass through the streets of Ait Benhaddou and out into the open surrounding desert. From the heat and dust of Morocco, world tourists will also take in the mud and dirt tracks of Malaysia’s Rawang province where roads wind through muddy jungle tracks with plenty of standing water.
The World Tour also heads west taking competitors on a 3-stop expedition of the United States. From the Estadio del Ray stadium in Los Angeles to Baja, California, with its dirt circuit featuring jumps and sweeping turns, to a canyon run at Kane Creek, near Moab, Utah, where the track is surrounded by immense natural red rock cliffs.
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.
