DiRT Facebook page just shared these wallpapers: https://imgur.com/a/OdF9I8G

@ChristinaMc any chance for 4K versions of this? For DiRT Rally we got 2560×2560 wallpapers, which I'm still using on my phone.
But this mobile wallpaper is just 700×1120 :(



Let me see what I can track down :)

Oh boy, what I wouldn't give to have Rally Australia's old Western Australia (Perth and surrounding areas) location in the game. That would be a real treat considering I grew up here. My first thought on seeing that photo was Australia as well upon seeing the fences, skybox and dryness of the environment.

I wouldn't be able to give you an exact location though if it is Australia though because the trees are sending me for a loop at the moment since they don't immediately look like anything uniquely "West Aussie" currently. Plus the road surface initially looks a bit too sandy my liking for the kinds of gravel we often have here in the south-west of the state, regardless of if they are swept or not. Could just be the photo failing to capture the intricacies of the surface texture though, since I know some of our gravel is rather small in size.

I cant figure it out which car it is, is that an Escort WRC?

Is that a new stage also?
Looks like Australia. 

Let's hope it includes Bunnings jump. Classic Colin footage there  o:)


Or Mineshaft?

Wasn't mineshaft in RBR? Probably wouldn't use it. I would hope for the classic ball bearing gravel stages of the old WRC Australia though. That picture may be another NZ stage since they appear to be using red dust areas of nz

A lot of it makes me think of Millstream-Chichester, which then makes me nostalgically sigh.

Yeah, it was in RBR. I think it's a real stage though. So I'd like to try it in a more recent title. Got to love that insane jump.

Yea but with it being in RBR I don't think Codies will want to use the same stages in order to avoid similarities etc

Ah, mentioning that sure brings back some childhood memories. Unfortunately I haven't had the opportunity to get quite that far north again in WA for a while. The Pilbara and Kimberley regions of the state can be quite magical though, well recommend anyone taking the time to visit them. Have fortunately been among the Perth Hills and Wheatbelt more recently though when I'm not in the city, so pretty familiar with that landscape and its seasonal variations. Which when it is summer pretty much consistent of being as dry as a bone, haha.

Dirt Rally 2.0 Part 4: Rallycross Gameplay PC Version

I think it would be really really cool to get a real dash as the HUD. A trip is a nice Rallystic touch, not a crappy odometer to see how many km your car has
I cant figure it out which car it is, is that an Escort WRC?

HUD is one thing (I personally never use 2d HUD, I always rely on 3d cockpit dash) but UDP output would be also useful for Android HUD development (F1 uses one already, so maybe that could make it easier do).

UDP already works I believe. Did in both DR and D4.

I think its there, or was in DR (never attempted in D4) but its rather basic.  I would like some Stage timing options and also Turbo boost gauge output.

Totally recommend for DR and D4

Great use for a spare Android or iPhone as just uses web browser for dash.

Will even display a map of the stage in the dash

DR and D4 already do that. There's an app for that.

I'm guessing its either Argentina or using old D4 stages for testing, as much as I'd love AUS to be in this! Hopefuly in future :)
Emmm. You are aware that Australia is one of the 6 locations at release? 
In that case Google failed me alongside my laziness to remind myself properly. I shall exit quietly out of the side door.

WA is gorgeous.  I travelled from Broome to Perth a few years ago and loved it.  Got off the plane in jeans in 40 degree temperature, that was horrible.

Now that @Kickup is not here around to answer questions.. i dont know who to ask.
About career mode, will we have teammate this time? (for team championship points)
and second about Livery editor, will we have more freedom? or if its same system, at least more pattern would be nice..

Not really gossip, but Petter Solberg testing the Polo R5 ahead of it's tarmac debut:



I know the differences in this model have already been mentioned, but I wonder if any of the returning R5's (specifically thinking of the Fiesta) will be tweaked for DR2.0?
