    Telemetry and keyboard support for consoles, please

    As @ianism said, I think you may be overestimating the job role of a marketing director. That said, if it potentially stops them paying a fortune for TV ads and investing in the games more, I'm all for it...

    DiRT Rally 2.0 - Seasons 3 & 4

    Not for me; I’ve seen rally cars in sun, rain, morning, noon, night and snow - I’ve never seen a rally with a thunderstorm; they’re just very rare. (I’m aware someone can probably find some footage, but it’s still super rare compared to, say, morning)

    DiRT Rally 2.0 - Seasons 3 & 4

    Agree, for me a couple more times of day (even if the sun doesn't move) for the rotation is the #1 one thing left - it's nice that the list is down to that TBH, hopefully within 6 months they can add morning and noon lighting to some stages.

    100x this. I'd happily have 6 locations with the current KMs plus same again. At the moment, the 12 stage rallies feel a bit tiring because you cover the same ground on each; more unique stages per country I'd definitely take over other countries* from this point on. *except Belgium, obviously

    Have a good holiday @PJTierney - cheers for the new Greece and Finland screens!

    I think it was said there will be a pass that works the same as the S1/S2 pass; this you can buy any time and you get each piece of the content on the date shown in the promo material. So something every two weeks for 4 months, basically!

    In which case, I can see some of the same textures maybe, but the stages are different: Can you point out to me where in here the DR Monte stages overlap? It's possible they do, but I can't find it. (BTW: this video and D3 physics make me so very grateful for Dirt Rally!)

    What are you on about? 1) They've created ~150km of brand new stage for this game and updated ~150km from DR1. 2) Instead of holding the shiniest, new bits back as DLC as many companies do, they've made that the base content so EVERYONE has this. 3) Then the upgraded DR1 venues are available optionally for people who are really into the game. Result; we have nearly 300km of the best modelled stages ever seen in a rally game. 4) They would not be able to produce the same distance in new locations as by upgrading them, so we'd have ended up with far less otherwise. 5) The Swedish stages are the same base model as DR1 but have nothing in common at all with Dirt 3, which has a few KM of really wide roads. Maybe they share the odd snow or tree texture, but that's it. The alternative to what we have would be the base game containing the updated DR1 locations with 2 brand new ones and then 1x new rally location per 'season'. Personally, I'd rather have been playing New Zealand, USA, Australia et al. for the last few months, during which I've forgotten the Greek and Finnish stages anyway.

    Just a thought, but how do you know for us users the prices would be the same? I'd hazard a guess that if they'd thrown away (gods forbid!) the DR1 location models and started with only new ones, we'd have had to pay a lot more for far fewer KMs. I understand if you'd prefer that, that's personal opinion, but I'm perfectly happy the way it's been done. TBH, Finland will feel completely new to me; I hardly touched it in DR1 due to the floaty jump physics.

    We should NOT buy any new DLC until the game is FIXED!

    a) I really enjoy the game b) I'll really enjoy Finland and Greece c) See a) and b) Sorry mate, I'm buying the rally content whether you like it or not - apparently there's a fix for the audio bug (which I've never experienced personally) coming soon BTW.

    DiRT Rally 2.0 - Seasons 3 & 4

    Warning: personal opinions ahead --- The Good: - Greece, loved it in DR1, first screens look great - Finland, I never enjoyed in DR1 despite the stages being superb; can't wait here - 'New' manufacturer in Seat, good stuff - The 206, a lot of people have wanted to see that for a while - kudos - Each new class has felt much more in-depth than in previous games, bonus points for the extra F2 car - VERY consumer friendly practice for those of us only interested in the rally content, putting it all in S3 - thank you The Bad: - The majority focusing on RX content, Season 4 isn't for me! - Over the 4 seasons, the DLC content will bring 24 cars, but none of those are for my favourite classes: H2 RWDs and RGTs - Strange selection of RX venues; neither 2018 or 2019 calendar will be completed - Little sad not to see the rumoured Nissan F2, but it's not my favourite class The Ugly: - The 206, Focus and Impreza being in a different class to the Evo VI and in the same class as the late 2000s cars --- On the whole, very pleased and in bringing the two expected rally locations in Season 3 you've exceeded my expectations there - I'm a bit sad not to see the superb RGT class expanded and somewhat disappointed that the superb 'late 2000s' class you created is going to be invaded by the early 2000s cars, but I suppose this isn't uncommon in regional rallying - I hope the pace differences between the cars is adequately captured though. Finland preview shots lots great; I've always liked the slightly autumnal feel to it but it looks much improved over the already superb DR1 version. Can't wait to try that with proper airborne physics.

    Aye, I'd be betting on end of this week, start of next week at this point

    DiRT Rally 2.0 Confirmed Car List

    @JorritVD let's play "spot the difference between RRC and S2000" and then wonder why new fans have trouble getting to grips with the class structure sometimes!

    The Codemasters Way

    He’s a super secret Codemasters paid account because they decided the best way to counter criticism, instead of improving the game, removing posts, locking threads or paying for reviews, was to have a single extra forum account to downvote specific posts. Sorry, did I say “he”? I meant “it”.
