WOW.

I've had to go about 20 pages of Gossip :D

I hope they will at least consider adding more locations with DLC this time. As hard as I'm opposed to DLC model it just makes a complete sense in a rally game and hand-crafted stages are worth every buck.


I had to make a meme:

I'm SO excited to see the direction taken with New Zealand! Mostly I'm just grateful that NZ is included. CMR(1.0) was the last rally game I played that included NZ. So first and foremost, thank you!! In terms of what I'd love to see, two things I hope are well captured are:
  1. Camber. I really hope cambered corners are ramped to the max in NZ. That flow feeling from this section of Fferm Wynt - but all the time, and with more speed! https://youtu.be/0qYbrI0k2N8?t=1m25s
  2. Environment. I really hope the road and the environment feels undeniably like NZ. eg I hope the start of the reveal trailer, and this pic is Australia  :D <3 https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DoAyvvRXUAA0yM5.jpg 

I'm guessing the stages will be heavily influenced by one of Rally Whangarei, Otago or Gisborne (Motu stage). Each has unique characteristics and possibilities for different environments.

Gisborne: Rough, tight, technical stages mixed with classic NZ camber and flow. Rougher "backcountry" environment. A legendary stage in the "Motu" which fits nicely with the legends focus (Colin "Motu" McRae).

Whangarei: Smooth wide flowing cambered stages. Bridges, tarmac sections. Green and lush, coastal stages.

Otago: Full throttle high speed commitment, elevation changes, camber, mountainous / coastal possibilities, snow / frost possibilities.

ALSO - if Hillclimb is in the mix - CARDRONA: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M85jiaG3LXQ

SO EXCITED.

How did I miss what I wished for lol

" In addition there will also be a DiRT Rally 2.0 Deluxe Edition which also includes the first two seasons of post-launch additional content, each with three locations (split between rally and rallycross) and five early vehicles unlocks (Ford Escort MkII, Lancia Stratos, Subaru Impreza 1995, AUDI Sport quattro S1 E2 and Ford Fiesta OMSE SuperCar Lite)."

So Seasons - that's really cool way to do that. I assume it's similar to R6 Siege seasons with difference Operator = Car, Map = new Stages/new Location

IMHO it's a fair business model, cars and tracks don't magically create themselves - and if it's going to be entirely new locations that  takes some real man hour to do and no one works for free.

Yeah I normally don’t like pre orders and deluxe editions, but when it’s something I really like and I feel I’m going to get value for money, I will fork out. In this case, I’m going to drive to southam and start stuffing £20 notes through codemaster’s letterbox until they give me what I want

Again reading this:
"first two seasons of post-launch additional content, each with three locations (split between rally and rallycross)".

- So minimal two seasons of DLC
- First two seasons have both three locations, meaning 6 locations.
- As the rally stages take possible the most time to develop, it would make sense that in a season comes two Rallycross tracks and one Rally location. That would mean that the remaining 4 WRX tracks will be added in the two seasons to the 8 WRX tracks that will be in the initial release. 

- It could also mean there will be a Rallycross season and a Rally season

"Race at Barcelona, Montalegre, Mettet, Lohéac Bretagne, Trois-Rivieres, Hell, Holjes and Silverstone in a multitude of different series."
- So Riga, CotA, Germany and South Africa are missing. Strangely, or more interestingly the four last rounds of the 2018 season.

Possible DLC imo what can expect:
- ARX (as I said earlier in the topic)
- 2019 WRX season

It might be the final DiRT that will be developed on the current gen consoles (PS4, Xone), so possible a bigger focus on DLC can be logical.

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

Regarding the “no snow stages” comments, perhaps the USA stages will be in Alaska?
Quite sure we will get Sweden as DLC also Germany, Finland, Wales, Greece and Monte Carlo
Thats some confidence considering there was absolutely 0 actual info to go off :P
In addition there will also be a DiRT Rally 2.0 Deluxe Edition which also includes the first two seasons of post-launch additional content, each with three locations.
Dirt Rally Locations are done and perfect, so why dont use them, it is Quite logical

Same reasoning was used with DiRT 4 but I'm yet to see a decent Wales stage in that game while Sweet Lamb was in DiRT Rally. Right now, we can only hope. And in all honesty, if the first two expansion packs will be made of JUST the stages from Rally it would feel quite cheap. It'd be better if they also added new roads. As I said though, it's far too early to say anything and OH MY GOD NEW ZEALAND <3

Unless it is still problematic to include those stages as they are a carbon copy(oh well) of the real ones used in the WRC with possible legal trouble ahead.
