So, the author of the Swedish review ends his article with that the game does lack a bit of content but that it will improve as Codemasters will release monthly DLC. I asked him if the review was based on the EA version of the game or 1.0, as I thought he mixed things up. There have been no word about possible DLC after EA, I said. He clearly states that the review is based on 1.0 and that Codemasters have said there will be monthly DLC after EA. I again said that he must be thinking of the monthly releases within EA. His simple answer was "We'll see ;)"

Gossip or not? You decide.
We shall wait for the next DiRT show and see, but a monthly DLC seems pretty ambitious or it won't be big as the EA packs.

I am not guessing here or saying something should happen, just throwing out some facts.

Remember that DiRT Team have a large collection of reference material of places from their previous DiRT games.  Just let your mind run wild at all the places they have been to.  We also know that they reuse assets from previous titles, so they aren't starting from a blank paper to build these. 

We don't know much of anything other than a car or two will be coming along at some point, and there is some sort of Legends version, whatever that will be, we don't have much.  

Whatever they feel makes most sense for marketing and sales, if that means more stages to the places we have, or new places based on previous material (which sounds good for marketing).  

Again I am not saying they should or will do anything further, its all just stuff to think about.

At some point they will need to start working on the next title.

I'm not sure about monthly DLC, I believe a new content will be releasing at least once in 2-3 months. 

But monthly it will be a great idea to see some new features and improvements: new physics, new damage model (broken suspesion ftw), adding mudflaps, new cameras etc. Liitle things which makes a game better.

hmmm gymkhana anyone ?  :D my body is my own and im 6ft 7
I'd like to see @KickUp announce a gymkhana add on, purely to see how much Twitter and the forum would go into melt down! :smiley: 

Having said that I still think a rally school or Battersea like area would be a good addition purely to allow you to play with the cars and car settings.

Some form of rally school is confirmed for console release, isn't it?
It is?! I know they have made mention of breaking console players in to the experience (which I guess would be best done with a rally school), but I didn't know if that had been officially confirmed?...

...I seriously cannot wait for the console release!

I'm not sure to be quite honest. I think I read something that at least stronly implied it, but I might've been overexcited and hopeful when reading :-)

Yeah the red bull interview with Darren told us about the new tutorials.

With regards to DLC, we know that Barcelona RX is fairly likely as they collected reference material. Stages closer to home are also more likely than ones further away, but would they do a DLC which adds stages to already existing locations? It would still be good, I just feel that it doesn't sound as good on the sales front. For example a rally Spain DLC sounds better than a Wales DLC as we already have Wales and that would probably confuse people

According to Paul tweets is very likely (or at least they were looking into it) to have more Wales stages then new locations.

No rally school, this:

"For fresh players, we've developed a detailed set of tutorial videos that cover all aspects of driving a rally car. We want to teach players how to handle our cars, rather than making things easier."

- Red Bull interview 
Yes this is what we have confirmed so far, however there
could still be a good chance an actual gameplay section that follows on from those videos will be added.
A "Now try and have a go for yourself" type thing, perhaps on a new rally school style location/ test area.

The devs, seemed very interested in doing such a thing in the first months of EA and were asking whether such a feature would be preferred to a re-do of the replay system if i recall.

Ah, that's it: I knew I had read something about tutorials! 

More rallycross tracks would be great, especially if they focus on the permanent World Rallycross tracks rather than the temporary ones. Would be amazing to see Loheac in game and, although its a recent addition to the Championship, Mettet would be good as well (though turn one at Mettet is likely to be utter carnage online!).

I think lots more Rally X content is a safe enough bet after the Official Partnership.  I dont know if it would ever warrant a stand-alone release, but it, along with Pikes Peak, definitely adds a much broader audience appeal to DiRT:Rally

With the console release incoming and the new partnership, maybe they got more resources and a green light to develop as much as they can content wise before and after console launch? 
who says that its codemasters doing the console release ? they could be just doing dlc and someone else the console porting.

arrrrrrrrrrrr rumors :D

So, just read a Swedish sites review of DR and the author stated this.

"When I've heard Codemasters gathered a talented team that includes people that's worked on iRacing and Richard Burns Rally, I started sweating heavily."

Hmmm, did he just pull this straight from his behind or is there any truth to this?
I'm pretty sure @KickUp answered that question on DiRT Show.
He said that there was no developer that was particularly involved in working also on RBR development, but they've discussed some things with RBR's dev in the very early state.

I wouldn't be suprised by additional RX track before console release - Barcelona to be specific. I'm neautral about this cause I don't play rallycross anyway.

Some new liveries seem very, very likely as we still have blanks on 1st and 2nds places on some cars (i.e. mentioned earlier S4).

What I would be most happy about would be additional Wales stage. Man, that would be so awesome to have like 16 stages event where in championship you have only 12 stages - you almost never drive the same set of stages. Besides that Wales is the BEST location in the game and obviously would take less budget to create, but there's the second side of the coin - marketing which was mentioned by @gfRally This is basically choosing between trying to expand the reach or making the current players more happy and more "loyal".

What seems very mystery for me is the Legendary Edition.
The name would make us think that there will be added some legendary things. What can be legendary in Rallying/RX/Pikes Peak that's not already in the game? It doesn't seem like it will be a stage/track. For me more probably that it'll be some additional cars / legendary liveries that we're missing.

Wasn't there an amazon italy description that mentioned a 99 min Colin McRae documentary? Because McRae was pretty legendary if I remember rightly!

And as for the console port, I assume part of it is being done by the new partnership with Koch Media?

Such gossip, much speculate

"Monster" Tajima is legendary in the hill climb discipline, so either his Escudo or SX4 could be contenders?
(they already have one of his SX4's modelled from DIRT3)

Personally my dream would be for codies to take a trip to New Zealand.
-Collect info for (arguably) the most stunning cambered rally stages in the world.
-Visit the "Race to the sky" hillclimb venue and add some all gravel variation to the hillclimb section.

I know its the furthest possible place to visit, but its 2 venues for one trip!! please! :)

One "legendary" place is full gravel Pikes Peak.  
And it's been basically confirmed to come at some point.

If there would be any additional rally to come, Kenya aka Safari rally seems the most probable tbh. It's by far the most requested one and it appeared in DiRT 3 in more than one form (trailblazer and rally) which means they should have a lot of reference materials. I personally would like to see Australia and San Remo the most, but that's just me.

The missing Renaults are always possible to come in some time, along with the liveries that @BrySkye pointed out. And naturally, the most important of all, the Audi Quattro E2 :D

Its possible, but do they have everything they need from the D3 reference material? As D3 weren't real stages, they just had some features of real stages. So to recreate a real stage they might not have everything they need

Kenya/Safari with 7-8 minute stages just doesn't do it for me. It's all about endurance imo.

Just pointed they have some reference materials, not everything ready ;)

If a Safari Rally would be done, IMHO it would have to be done right.  

Lots of dust and MUDDY water crossings.  

Cars would need proper gear, if you can call it that:





And of course the Datsun 240z that was so famous in the Safari rally way back.


The bar is just been set too high in the current DR graphics  and environment to have less.  So not sure if this would be a DLC that could do the even justice.

Depending on the stage, I guess it could be possible to actually make something along the lines of the length of the Finnish stages. I'd think making a Kenyan stage would take less resources engine wise than something like Finland, given the sparse nature of the landscape. Certainly plenty of obstacles in this 10 minutes of onboard! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pinoWOCIwFQ
