If this is the final DLC then all I can say is thank you to Codemasters for creating such a masterpiece. Its given me hours and hours of fun (and frustration!). Most Iconic rally cars are featured and the dev really have listened to the community feedback

I'm being nervuous that @PJTierney didn't deny it's the final DLC. If it is, then I really regreat. New rally content for DR 2.0 would be extraordinary and really desirable. I'd buy it just as it comes, as I did in season 3 despite being recycled. However if it's true, than thank you Codies for Dirt Rally 2.0 - it already gave me great moments and I'm pretty pretty sure it will give me more in future too.

@PJTierney what’s the price gonna be for non-season purchasers like myself? Is it worth me buying one of the seasons now (well, after payday) just to get that extra content on top of the Flat Out pack, or should i just hang on until March to buy it on its own?

Still TBC.

I believe it'll be less than a Season upgrade, so I'd recommend if you find a Season bundle on sale to pick that up, play the extra content and then get Colin for free 🙂

yaaaa the 01 Focus really needs more liveries! that white base one isn't great, and the others are meh. for that matter, the 07 one could do with another 😞

Hello everyone

Are the achievements for this DLC (which looks great) in final form? The DLC should have a lot more. :classic_wink: I'm really interested how the achievements are getting figured out for the DLCs. Usually with the last dlc of any game, it has a nice round number at the end, not like here (1585) which I (personally) don't like. A nice round 1600 would have looked cleaner. I thought this company looks after this small imperfection. Maybe foreshadowing more in the future? :classic_wink:

Thank You

@PJTierneyYou might want to tell the devs that the trailer have the wrong wheels for the Impreza WRC98

Here the real snow ones (on Kankunen car in 99), the five-spokes on your trailers were used mostly on the snow-only stages of the Monte Carlo(at least on the WRC97, since the WRC98 was not ready at the time for the Monte Carlo and Sweden 1998), and the 6-spokes wheels were used on the WRC97 for the Swedish Rally.

Here the gravel one (6 spokes seems to be more on the WRC97, and for the WRC98 they switched to the one in the photo)

And as a bonus, here are the asphalt wheels (taken at the San Remo rally according to ewrc) :

Just to clarify, that doesn't mean the car was rushed, just that it was bumped up the pipeline ahead of other cars. (At a guess it was developed around the time of the World RX cars)

I did a little research, just as i did with the locations the last time, although i could have made quite some mistakes this time.

I kinda checked the amount of WRC/2000cc cars. I only added the Lancer Evo VI for obvious reasons.
(A) stands for Group A,
(N) for Group N, and
(S) for Street

image.thumb.png.02369b9cd5b937070c2ab2194d2bf092.png

Although i could have added three group N cars for DiRT 2, there were no WRC/2000cc cars or class in that game. So it felt a bit pointless to add them in the list.

Despite all the WRC/2000cc cars in DR2.0 are all payable DLC, it has the biggest amount of cars of all games with 9, which is more than double the average, especially if you not count the Group N replacement cars.

Interestingly (and imo) CMR 2.0 follows with a great line-up of 6 cars. The difference with it, is that all those 6 cars are from the same era, as in DiRT 2.0 they are from a wide range of years. I think on that aspect CMR 2.0 scores better.

 

Talking about era/timelines. The cars in DR2.0 competed official in which years:
image.png.bc13c227ce440e54e0bc5d94517f0da5.png

Some interesting points:
- This really shows that the Mitsubishi Lancer Evo VI belongs to the 2000cc class.
- You could really say that there are two eras of WRC/2000cc in DR2.0. One around the millenium, and one at the end of the 00's.
- A lot people said the S4 (S5) Impreza not has enough friend to play with, but if the Lancer would be added to the class, than it has 3 friends.
- On the other side, the Fabia has almost no friends in the mid 00's era. Actually the game lacks of mid 00's WRC cars. The game could really use f.e. the Focus (2003-2005), the Impreza (2003-2005), the Xsara (2001-2006), the Peugeot 307 WRC (2004-2005) and/or the Lancer (WRC04/WRC05)

 

More WRC/2000cc cars?

I think for now it not will happen, though i see the potential of a WRC history game. I don't know if it is difficult to get the license from WRC for this 1997-2010 era.

But for more WRC cars in the future there might be potential, depending on relationship with manufacturers and things like that.
- Ford Escort WRC. The Group A version is already there, so the base is ready. I don't know if the car would need a lot of work to be converted into WRC spec. Licensing shouldn't be the most difficult with Ford.
- Ford Focus WRC (2003-2005). Similar story as with the Escort, as the 2001 could be potentially used as an base. But it would need a lot of more work.


- Mitsubishi Lancer WRC. Interesting though, there have always been Mitsubishis in the game, but always Group N and A spec cars if I am correct. If one will come, probably it would be need to build from scratch.
- Peugeot 307 WRC. I wouldn't say impossible, but would possible also need to be build again from scratch (it was in CMR DiRT, don't know how usefull that still could be).
- SEAT Cordoba WRC. I also would say it isn't impossible, also with the kitcar and a RX Supercar in the game. But again, fully scratch build. 
- Skoda Octavia WRC. Long time it seemed that Skoda would be impossible to join, but in DR2.0 the Fabia R5 and WRC arrived suprisingly. If that means the Octavia will come in the future aswell?
- Subaru Impreza (03-05 & 06-07). They would need to be scratch made aswell. Licensing should also not be the biggest problem with all the Subaru already in the game.


- Citroën Xsara WRC. Seems difficult, the licensing seems pretty hard. Who knows it might got easier now that Citroën stept out of WRC. It is actually the only real WRC car that is missing in the game in which Colin has competed active with on the WRC stages)
- Hyundai Accent WRC. Hyundai seems not possible for now to license.
- Toyota Corolla WRC. Seems also not to happen that Toyota would make a return due to history.
- Suzuki SX4 WRC. I have no idea.

I have to admit the work that has gone into dirt rally 2.0 is magical, 

2 of the finest games ever to grace us lowly console guys is the brilliant project cars 2 and dirt rally 2,0,

just a huge shame that f12019 didn't get same attention, 

big thanks,

 

only thing I don't understand is codemasters list of games now includes my personal favourite Pcars 2 ,

that game was released 2017 and although codemasters bought the excellent SMS from the genius Ian ding dong bell ,that seems Pcars 2 is the only game that interested codemasters,

does this mean that codemasters are going flat out to produce Pcars 3,

No Peugeot 307 CC WRC please, that belongs in the speedboat class

Speedboat? More like barge! :classic_laugh:

I'd say this is a fitting swansong for DiRT Rally 2.0: and possibly the last DiRT game on this platform? Can't wait to get that S4 S5 on stage. :classic_wink:

Also I’ve noticed in the screenshots of the forthcoming 98 wrc car that the steering wheel has the yellow centre ring, I know it’s only a small thing but iam open to correcting but I’ve never seen Colin McRae have had that on any of his steering wheels on any of his rally cars,l throughout his career, the 2001 Ford Focus has the same thing which it shouldn’t have.

Cancel the whole DLC. It’s ruined. Unplayable 

What the **** are you talking about!?!?!? How can it be unplayable if it hasn't been released yet??? All this stuff comes out on 24th March. Can't you read? It is even written in the name of the topic for those like you. This DLC will be the best they have ever released to this game.

It would be good if you deleted this post.

I’m sorry but it will be impossible for me (and I assume everybody else) to play this dlc if this yellow part on the steering wheel remains on the car in-game, when clearly it was never used in real life.

I don’t know, but I am 100% deadly serious. Either #remove this yellow steering wheel or #cancel the whole dlc. No joke, the game will be ruined. Definitely.

I thought it was a joke but it seems that somebody is stupid. It is only the matter of ******* circle on the ******* steering wheel and you blame whole the ******* DLC, which what is more, hasn't seen the daylight yet??? It would be better if you made a suggestion to remove it because something is wrong if it really disturbes you, not talk such ******** that they have got to cancel it.

Either someone from codemasters sees this and removes that yellow part from the wheel, or I will not be claiming my FREE dlc. It will be your loss codemasters, not mine

I recommend adding a word 'joke' or 😆 emoji because your comments look like serious complaining, not a joke. In written language you cannot rather see emotions like in spoken language.

I heard enough negative opinions and comments (not necessarily here) about this game and I am fed up of complaining about some little details, which don't really matter.

Given the context, the reference to “I will not be claiming my FREE DLC...”, and the pettiness of the complaint it’s pretty ruddy obvious this is a joke

Some stuff can be so bad that you wouldn't like to own it even if it was free so I don't think it is so obvious. Maybe now when you explained.

I'm also looking forward to seeing what the scenarios will bring! I’m hoping to recreate the time when Colin rolled the focus twice in Greece and still carried on flat out!

I am glad to see that one of the Trophies/Achievements requires us to duplicate his triple trip to the trees in Finland!
