DiRT 4 Road Book - 19/05/17

ChristinaMcChristinaMc Member, Codemasters Community Manager

This week’s Road Book is a little all over the place, in tribute to how all over the place the DiRT team’s been with promoting the game! We’ve been at HockenheimRX, MettetRX, a shiny preview event in London, and we’ll also be at Lydden Hill which is just around the corner – so we’re doing our best to spread the DiRTy word as far and wide as possible. After all, with only three weeks to go until DiRT 4 is available globally, it’s the perfect time for us to take things up a gear (see what we did there?!)

Alongside the shiny stuff, we’ve also done some important work in the office too – like finalise our initial supported peripherals list. You’ll be able to find that list in this post, so stay tuned for that in a few paragraph’s time. :)

Anyway, let’s get to the good stuff – and crack on with the Road Book!

DiRT 4 Preview Event

As you might’ve seen on the internet yesterday, we held a very special preview event in London. It’s safe to say DiRT 4 went down an absolute storm, so keep your eye out for some of the capture and content that will come out of that! We’ll be sharing them as usual over the coming days and weeks – but for a sneaky preview of what went on, you can check out one of the Periscopes we did at the event:


A big thank you to Matt Beckett (our resident Product Manager for Micro Machines World Series) for daring to have his first crack at DiRT 4 live on Twitter! True story: Paul Coleman, Chief Game Designer for DiRT 4, gave him a couple of choice motivational words just before we went live… those words were ‘be brave’.

You can also take a look at the first video we’ve seen come out of yesterday’s event, posted by Erased Citizens on YouTube last night. Alas, there isn’t any sound from the game – but if you want to see how beautiful it looks, then this is a pretty good representation.


Supported peripherals – the list!

So we’re at the stage where we’re finally able to unveil our supported peripherals list! Of course, these peripherals are mostly assorted wheels, pedals and shifters – but you’ll also see a couple of other things on there that are technically compatible input peripherals!

Finally: please note that this is just the first list, and that it will be subject to changes/updates as certain manufacturers launch new hardware.

As mentioned before, this is the initial list – but we’ll update you accordingly with any further updates to the above!

Right – that’s all from us for now. For those of you who made it to the end of this Road Book – well done! And you’re right, it was a short and sweet one. But it was a short and sweet one because…

SURPRISE – LIVE DiRT SHOW INCOMING

We’re surprising you with news of a live DiRT Show this afternoon! We know you’re all hankering for some longer runs and a root around the menus and car list, so that’s what we’re bringing to you. We’ll also be taking Your Stage generation requests and answering your questions – so please, feel free to post your questions in the various Road Book threads of the internet and we’ll try our best to get round to answering them later! We’re looking at a 14:00-15:00 start time, depending on when we can all herd the cats together – but we’ll let you know when we’re confident about hitting the ‘stream’ button. :)

So… see you later, yeah? We’ll be broadcasting over on Facebook, so make sure you’re ready!

    @ChristinaMc

    I said I am going to withhold myself from further footage but your coverage is one I am going to watch anyway. I have a few questions though:
    • Can you show off a replay?
    • Can you show the final carlist?
    • Can you go into more details what owing cars does in terms of stats?
    Make it a DIRTy show  :)

    Or can access them at work!


    Come on though guys, be fair - they have to stream it somewhere and everyone has their favourites. In a fan of YouTube's streaming, but others like Twitch, others FB and so on.

    All their Dirt shows has been on Twitch to my knowledge. Suddenly switching to Facebook is mean. I refuse to make an account just to watch that... or any other reason, for that matter.

    Oh, I take it back, you're right - I didn't think you needed a Facebook account just to access a public stream. If that's a setting, please consider changing @xtinamcgrath @ChristinaMc

    Cheers for the YouTube upload, but would be nice for future Dirt Shows if it was on a medium where we don't need to log in to watch live. YouTube or Twitch streams allow anyone with the link to watch, was surprised that I couldn't watch the show on Facebook without being logged in. Minor feedback; either way, I'm looking forward to watching the stream back!

    Didn't get this early enough, watched stream still afterwards. Nice! :)

    I havent't found much about Dirt4's clutch support (for simulation handling mode) from web. Is it possible to hear about it more (next roadbooks or there)? I'm interested in especially is there possibility to change gears without using clutch (with h-gears) and make some damage for gearbox with full simulation mode enabled? 

    With DirtRally I was forced to play "Manual sequental and h-gears" -mode and enabled "clutch override" from settings. I think many simracers would like to hear answer to this question. I think many of these boys (and maybe girls ;) ) are still buying your game despite answer...

    Just anpther video with dodgy physics.
    I really cannot understand what's the point to not show how realistic cars could behave.


    Have you seen the livestream they did today? That had simhandling
