    Has GCK Megane been ever mentioned as being in the game? https://twitter.com/GCKRX/status/1072862653117227008?s=09 https://twitter.com/GCKRX/status/1072883286496763905?s=09

    Simply freaking amazing! The locations picked are superb (Oz, NZ and Pooooooland!) with intriguing mention of deformable terrain. Cannot wait to hear more :D Post-launch content release plan with *first 2* seasons hints that DiRT Rally 2.0 may be run like a game service, with decent longevity. Great approach and something I wrote about in the past. I even think that on my wish-list there were the following dream features/content: - operate as a service - road deformation and evolution - stages in Poland Thanks you Codies. I'm very excited :D So will the infamous Ross Gowing join Twitter or forum to answer some questions? @KickUp definitely followed 'Be Brave' pace note and was scared of the Gossipers :D

    I've been quietly lurking and reading this MIGHTY thread :D I'm so excited and have been loving the info, screens and vids released to date. What an amazing job by the team!  I hope the guys will persevere through the push to release, with the aid of kebab pizza and popcorn, and will be hugely proud of the game in June. I've found a Steelbook Edition on TESCO for a pretty good price considering normal versions tend to cost the same. https://www.tesco.com/direct/dirt-4-steelbook-edition-ps4/665-8774.prd?skuId=665-8774 What is this Mystery location.....? Codies car park? Barcelona or Hockenheim RX? One more rally location? Battersea Power Station Gymkhana course? :D I would think if a 6th rally location was in the works the team would make it clear as that would drum up the sales. So perhaps it will something small to mid-size, but nevertheless awesome :)

    Mr @KickUp showing what 'Be Fearless' slogan really means! :) Spirit of '4' tweet lives on?  Thanks for an honest and transparent explanation. I would have agreed that segragating the playerbase from the very start would have been less than ideal, but since I'm a bit of a fanboy and I'm convinced I will love DiRT 4 I was going to pre-order anyway :)

    Whoa! :D :D :D DiRT 4 looks veeeery tasty! I'm buying a PS4 this week so come June I'm hoping to find time for some casual DiRTiness when it comes out :D  Have we seen any footage from Spain yet?

    Okay... So I've had a life changing moment this week... Shish, doner and chicken kebab calzone...................... :D :D Aweeeeesome! and the meat was packed in so tight the pizza shell had a hard time containing it! On a subject much less related to all things DiRTy and Gossipy - Congratulations to DiRT Rally team on winning TIGA award for best racing game! :D :D :D

    Hello DiRTy Gossipers!  It's been a really long time. . .  I've not been Gossiping much over the past few months , but I've been lurking . Some amazing life stuff has happened and I'm afraid any sleep time wins over DiRTy time . . .  It appears that the DiRTy torturers are at it again and spilling juicy info left right and centre :)  My ridiculous guess is that DiRT Rally 2.0 (going by the tweet with CMR 2.0 box) will be either unveiled or released in 90 days from the 90mph tweet . . .  Mic drop .  I'm most likely wrong but when has that stopped anyone in this thread . . . :)

    Guilty as charged! :smile: Hello guys! Long time no see.... Life is quite different these days with a 6 week old baby - despite the awesomeness of DiRT Rally I'm still going with sleep whenever there's a chance. I'm missing a bit of Gossip in my life so I'll try and make it back over here to come up with ridiculous theories :smile: I've had a go at this other Codies game - will have to play a bit more in one of my 30 minutes / month slots and write up my impressions. Congrats to @Rallycameraman and @KickUp on completing their first rally - Is there a write-up or a video? I'll be very keen to read how it all came together :)  DiRTy Gossip thread still going strong!

    Great news about Evo Studios merging with Codies! Or was it more of a bail-out? I guess the timing is perfect as Codies seem to be bouncing back with DiRT Rally, hopefully a much more feature full and solid F1 2016 and some unfortunate restructuring. Evo Studios probably couldn't put a big price on their operation as they were in a tough situation. Hopefully, all of this will managed well to make use of a group of very talented developers with passion for racing and motorsport. It would have been awesome if best bits of Codies games and tech were combined with the undeniably pretty visuals of Evo's Driveclub. A new racing IP? My hope is that at least one of the projects will be a DiRT Rally successor, with more of the conent, with more work on the physics and more on multiplayer features. Exciting times for Codies - I'm really happy to see them on a good path :)

    I've probably already moaned that after calling all Sainbury's super-stores in Edinburgh I still don't know which ones will have the steel-book edition. Maybe in hindsight Codies should have had more retailers stock that edition... If it's true that PC steelbooks can't be bought anywhere in UK then I'll definitely drive over to the biggest Sainsury's and try to get the PS4 one. The CREST telemetry looks awesome, but if I understand it correctly it can only be used on Dailies?

    DiRT Rally launch day! :D :D Congratulations to the team on getting to this point! :) You can hear and read in interviews that this was far from an easy journey and I'm really happy I played a tiny part in it :) I'm planning on going this evening to Sainsbury's to hopefully buy one of the steelbook edition copies. However, it will have to be for PS4 as they're not selling PC... I guess I'll have to follow with a purchase of a console :tongue: By the way - if anyone sees a PC steelbook edition please buy it for me and I'll send the money back with 10% profit :D Anyone? I've not had much time to play DiRT Rally lately (life stuff) and I'm unlikely to get much time to play in the immediate future (big life stuff), but I'll do my best to have a go with the new content soon :) Congratulations to @KickUp @Hatward , Steve the Wizard, the rest of the awesome dev and community team and to our torturer/DiRTy friend @justbiglee . Thanks for being so engaging and keen to listent to the fans - I hope that you've seen that it helped you make a better game. The best rally game ever! :D

    In the absence of a Reviews thread, here's a review: http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2016-03-30-dirt-rally-review Usually I enjoy reading the Eurogamer reviews, but this one is rather poorly written and doesn't really mentioned the main strenghts and weaknessess of the game.. I do like it that they've given in a 'Recommended' grade, but the review itself could have been much better. Martin Robertson's review of DiRT Rally on PC is much better: http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2015-12-14-dirt-rally-review

    @tbtstt Finally :)  It's a bit of a shame we won't now be able to remind you of what you've been missing out on :) I wish I had a PS4 to show you how it's done around Lydden Hill or Holjes :tongue: :tongue: I'm really keen to the PC steelbook edition so I went to Sainsburys to pre-order it, but in two stores they didn't have it available for pre-order at all, any edition... Anyone had luck with getting it ordered?

    Cheers @KickUp and @Hatward for answering my question, and even bigger thank you for giving an answer I wanted to hear :tongue: :D Something tells me the console DiRT Rally will do well and the ingredients for this stage deg tech (great team, magician programmers, money and time) will be available :) I only had time to watch half of the show so far, but the duette of @KickUp and @Hatward is on the way to stardom :tongue: Great job guys and hopefully we'll see more of DiRT Show in April.
