New Dirt 3 Video Loves Lens Flare

Mud, oil and rubber. No, not the ingredients for my perfect weekend. That’s what it takes to make Dirt 3 look awesome. And it does look awesome, make no mistake.

  1. Short but sweet, looks good to me.

  2. Excited. This video is also the first reveal of said Opel Manta, a classic GrpB racer but also the brand new Mini WRC car, Tanner Foust’s rally cross Fiesta and Ken Block’s WRC Fiesta (which is different to his gymkhana ride, this video shows both). Nice to see this years WRC cars in the game, way ahad of the official WRC 2011 game that’s due out later this year.

  3. This is going to be the racing game of the year! cant wait!

    • Totally agree. Roll on release day.

  4. Got this on pre order at ShopTo. Hope they get the pre order bonuses.

    • same.

    • Me too, Shopto did have a policy where any pre-ordered game with them qualifies for a gift, usually a DLC code…so Yup! I hope so ;)

      • I hope so as well. Not really worth spending the extra on a pre-order else where.

  5. Not long to go until release, not long to go until TSA Dirt3 meets :-}

  6. Just finished Dirt 2 career after getting it super late + preowned. Looking forward to this. Looks awesome! Hope there are many more tracks as that was the biggest downfall of Dirt 2 for me, too much repetition. Looks like a lovely spread of environments this time too.

  7. Retailer specific pre-order bonuses get my goat a bit. I understand perfectly why they do it but I hope all of the varied bonuses are eventually available for the game via DLC.

    It does look very nice though. :)

  8. you know i’ve never seen a game with Lyrics in the rating box. . . hmmf anyhoo game looks rather fine and dandy. Been a long time since i’ve played a good racing game

  9. Dirt and Dirt2 were great games and i’m looking forward to Dirt3 but i’m really hoping the career mode won’t be split into different types of events or that there will at least be a seperate Rally career mode. As for vehicles, just let me throw a Subaru Impreza around and i’m happy :)

    • I don’t think it’s split, but they said the single player campaign is 60% rally. Pretty good, but 100% would be better :)

  10. Didnt do it for me. Dirt is just ok to me…
