Demo: Colin McRae: Dirt This Thursday

Published On May 23, 2007 | By Anthony Barker | News

We’ve had a small taste of what Forza Motorsport 2 has to offer us and our gas guzzling thirst for racing games, so it’s now time for another big hitter! This coming Thursday it will be time to get down and dirty, literally, with the recent announcement of the another title that us petrol-heads are craving for, yes that’s right we’re talking Mr McRae and his collection of dirty rallying motors.

This upcoming demo will feature three different types of rallying from the full game when it hits our shores at the end of June. First up we have Buggy Racing which features yourself and 9 other AI opponents and will give you a taste of the car models, their handling and physics [let’s hope for some crash modelling too! -Ed]. Second we have a rally Super Stage event which will see you face Colin himself in a crossover time trial rally. Lastly, we slow the pace down a bit, if that’s possible, with a Hill Climb event featuring ‘fantastic scenery’ as you race your way up the hill in record time.

We can’t wait to take Mr McRae out for a spin in full HD goodness. Look out for a XCN Q&A on Colin McRae: Dirt very soon and keep your eyes peeled on Thursday at 9am GMT when the demo splashes its way onto the Xbox Live Marketplace.
