DEMO: Colin McRae: DiRT

Published On May 24, 2007 | By Russ Clow | News

Codemasters have just announced that a playable demo of Colin McRae DiRT has hit our 360 Marketplace!

The demo features a cross-over event with players racing against the one and only Colin McRae. The press release explains more:

“Set in Germany, the Avelsbachring’s smooth but twisty tarmac is the perfect battleground for a pair of Subaru Impreza WRX STI spec Cs; McRae’s car complete with his 2006 Summer X-Games No Fear livery. Then, with nine other racers aggressively competing for position, it’s a fierce C.O.R.R. competition in V8 650hp buggies at the Bark River Off Road Raceway, Michigan”

The release goes on to say:

“Next, the Xbox 360 demo takes players for a race to the skies with a Hill Climb event. Churning gravel in a Mitsubishi Evo IX, players race the final 1000 feet of Windy Point in the soaring heat of Arizona. The PC demo switches the hill race for an all-new multiplayer high, which sees up to 100 players competing for the record on the Sardinian rally stage at Mounte di li Conchi.”

The demo is available for download now via the 360 Marketplace with the full game being released on 15th June 2007.
