Furthermore, there's incoherence between the year display. (2001) 2001 and none at all. Plus noticed how the brand names are on capitals but Ford is not.

I really, really wish you hadn't pointed that out! I'm not going to be able to get it out of my head now.

I think some manufacturers are written in caps lock because their logos are stylized that way. it bugs me though.

yes I got up early to see if there was any announcement yet.

nothing yet? I guess I'll go do the dailies and come back. 

psssssh I'm not excited, what are you talking about?

edit: [for the record, I don't think this necessarily means they will announce anything today. we'll just have to wait and see.]

It's almost too bad Season 3 was basically confirmed as soon as we knew what was in Season 2 because it didn't have 2001 Subaru Impreza we were promised before release, however I'm still very interested to see what the other content will be. Think Finland (completing DR1 set), Greece (completing DR1 set), Peugeot 306 F2 kitcar (screenshotted on official DR2.0 page), Subaru Impreza 2001, Ford Focus 2001 are as good as 100% confirmed for me. That leaves 1 more location and 3 more cars that are still up in the air completely.

Anything you did differently for the Subaru to load?

Actually no. I felt like playing some online rallies and then the Subaru 2001 appeared alongside de Ford 2001 in a 2000cc 4WD lobby, which was pretty bizarre since I even don't own the Deluxe contents.

Going to keep reloading lobbies on the off chance it shows its face 🤞

DLC content is free for everyone to use in online multiplayer, you just have to join a lobby where the host has picked it.

that's probably what happened with the Focus and Impreza yesterday - they weren't blocked from being available in this way, because it'll be needed to be open later, and they forgot to disable it. it's happened before, for the release of the 08 Impreza and 07 Focus, I think, because they were also being added to an already-existing class. this wouldn't have happened if they were in a car class that was new to the game, because then the host wouldn't be able to select it in the first place

Yes the first bunch of season 3 content was easy to predict, just basically finishing off the content from DR1. The dr1 ibiza kit car will probably also be present. 

Any other locations will surely be Rallycross seeing as there are no more rally locations to port from dr1.

I suspect if Seat were playing ball we’d have had more than 50 cars at launch - could be wrong, but I expect to see a Nissan partner the 306.

Where and when is that and the Focus available?

Currently playable in online custom lobbies providing you or the party leader owns content from "up to 2000cc". As for when it's available as DLC, no idea

I mean where is the Scooby and Focus, why can't I access them yet when others can?

They aren't meant to be accessible in the game and are supposed to come as future DLC which hasn't even been announced yet.

The only way I've been able to access the Focus is by going:

Freeplay 👉 Custom Events 👉 Create Championship 👉 Multiplayer Settings 👉 Public/Private 👉 Championship Configuration 👉 Add Event (Select location) 👉 Vehicle Class 👉 Up to 2000cc 👉 Add stages 👉 Confirm 👉 Start Championship 👉 20190809_215059.thumb.jpg.73aff9aba4808bb1c787cc42b5cff3c3.jpg

Aha, done it. Cheers. Wonder how long this will last? Not seeing the Scooby tho.

Seems very rare that the Subaru pops up. Frustrating because that's the car I've been wanting since release 🙄😂

Just drove the focus 2001 there, quiet a nice car, massive improvement from the version in dirt 1, a lot more stable. But again the liveries are pathetic for the car.

Agree. Far more nimble than it was in DR1/D4. There's probably a licensing issue with using the Martini livery because of alcohol/WRC

I don’t mind not having the Martini livery, but we’ve said it before about the 2007 focus, absolutely no effort put into the liveries to even make it look like a car you could see on a real rally. Could the 2 liveries in the pics not have been added, the white one was used in 2003 before the far nicer big winged version was released or the blue livery from 2002. not very complicated liveries but damn are they good looking !!

Looking forward to the Estering. Just check out this onboard footage of Gronholm back in 2017 in his M-Sport Fiesta. They made a few little changes to the track, but it will give a clear indication how challenging this track is. Shame that

Would be not better to put just the 2002 Focus WRC from McRae without Martini Logo/Names like in Colin McRae Rally 3? They could do just the livery like before.

Sounds more like Codemasters have issues with WRC car licenses they could do it like this but even that it's not happening as well. 😕image.thumb.png.8a8256334db8b03d71b3abe52515aa16.png

Agreed but I would assume martini still own the livery even if it only has ford instead of Martini on it and there might be issue with Movistar also

The in-game livery did exist but it was used on the 1999 test car, hence why it doesn't strike a chord with most rally fans.

Agree that it's a shame that the iconic livery the 2001 car actually had is unavailable but at least it's better than the 2007 Focus 🙄

I remember it from Gran Turismo 2!

Just out of interest, how do the liveries work if you weren't to include a sponsor who didn't give their consent? In that photo, Polyphony haven't included the Valvoline logo that's on the real car but are still able to use the rest of the livery.

Just came across my mind because the DLC Porsche is the only car to have the classic blue/gold/red livery minus the Rothmans logos. Is it a case of acquiring the actual colour scheme and then tackling the sponsors or are they all tied in to one?
