DiRTy Gossip about DIRT Rally Games

Yeah, the car models look simplified - i like the stage, looks fun, call outs are sub par and boring with a lower quality audio than i've heard from in car audio on rallys.

I get they're trying to show suspension movement, but most of what they're getting across is the dampers are shot and need replacing, talk about pogo stick :(  Started feeling a little queasy at the end there.

A rally gamr with no Audi, no Subaru, no Toyota, no (interesting) Mitsubishi, no Peugeot.

Brave.

DiRT Rally and 4 lists are better, but they have at least got an Escort MkI, two Porsche and two R5s that Codemasters have been missing, as well as the 'other' half of the 90s Kit Car set.

What I do like about the list is that it  might be possible for the next dirt to include pre 2017 wrc cars again. Without the WRC name ofcourse

Yes. I would like this very much.

Well, I would too but it's pretty obvious that's not gonna happen. Perhaps the 2017 Polo. I could see that as a one-make class

Entirely unrelated, but Burnout Remastered hit PC a few days ago and I managed to snag it for $5... for some reason.

You say that, but the c3 made it into The Crew, so it’s not completely out of the question

So what exactly do they say?                            

He says word for word (my first language is french) :

"But since there is no more official licence (in V-rally 4) what is interesting is that they have less restrictions than in WRC 7 with the WRC championship." After that it's just the usual V-Rally 4 PR speak.

I don't think it actually confirm anything.

Thanks - i guess the less restrictions mean about other cars they might not have wanted in the game alongside theirs, or only doing official branding and/or tracks etc.

So i wonder who has it then?

Have to say I agree with those who think that car list is pretty poor; it's very scatter shot and doesn't cover any era very well.

That's the question everyone has been wondering for a while now.

I will keep an eye on the french articles see if i find anything, usually there is more stuff than in the english press about the game.

Hmm, for me it is the most interesting that V-Rally 4 has got the VW Beetle GRX of Tanner Foust. Foust has like Ken Block a deal with Microsoft and Forza. So with V-Rally having the Foust Beetle, than I guess it should be no problem at all for Codemasters to have the full ARX field in the new game with the Impreza, Beetle (including Foust) and Focus (including Block).

its official 1:10 bigben and kylotonn no have licenses wrc at this moment https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=shCexDVHzq8 

is french video
My french isn't the best but aren't they just saying that they are detaching themselves a little from WRC? They still have the rights from the sentences before that and they are capitalizing on that. "Acquis" means assets?

Exactly! For this game they are not attached to the WRC license which has given them much more artistic freedom. Nowhere it has been said that they don't have the license anymore.

"Acquis" means assets? > More or less, they use WRC7 (engine/platform/physics) as a base and build on that for V-Rally4 with a few tweaks.

As for the carlist, it is a bit of a letdown. Not a single Peug, Subi or Toyota and I don't hold my hopes for the DLC. What I really like though is their trackgeneration in those environments. It seems much better than DIRT4 but it is also less dynamic. The stages look really nice and above all it comes with a photomode. Something I look very much forward to. Been trying to figure out the options but haven't got a response so far.

Haha, my guess is he could be appointed to help make their rumoured Fast & Furious game ;) 
Either way I hope he can help them with development on the PS4 and console side of things. Was appalled at the state of Project Cars 2 when it first released on PS4, was like they’d outsourced it to another company to make a port of the PC version but did a right hash job of it, granted its in a much better state now after numerous patches

But (for my feeling) apperently SMS can get quite easy licenses for cars and tracks for the pCARS game, compared to Codemasters. Or do they have a bigger team to do things, or they rush things more (and more bugs), a bigger name with pCARS, etc. Though the point is they have a lot more content in a game compared to DiRT4. Codemasters got the Fia WRX license, but in DiRT 4 not all cars were there, not all tracks, while the cars and tracks were even from the previous season (game released in summer 2017, while the WRX content was from 2016). 

Imo, if you have the Fia WRX license, you should have most of the season entries in it and all tracks. If you not can provide that, than maybe it is better not to have the license, and just have a mix of WRX, GRC and other series tracks and cars. 

Sorry that almost all my posts go about Rallycross

Surprised that nobody has asked Kylotonn if they are planning on DLC.  Maybe that’s where the Audi and Subaru models are hiding.

If they had the majority of Subaru rally cars licensed then thats fine but a little dumb to not have any in base product unless they would release 1 or 2 free before as a taste of what could be bought.  I don’t mind DLC that expands content over the year from a games first release.  Just don’t go loot-crate-stupid-greedy with it.  This is for everyone CM and anyone else.
