Codemasters Releases New Pikes Peak Pack for ‘DiRT Rally’

by

Codemasters today announced that the Pikes Peak pack has joined the DiRT Rally offering on Steam Early Access. From today, the world-renowned Hillclimb course in Colorado, USA is available as a free update, with players able to experience its treacherous twists and turns as they race to reach the cloud-shrouded peak of the highest summit of southern Front Range of the Rocky Mountains. Players can get ahead of the pack and plan their pace notes by checking out this new trailer:

For nearly 100 years, the Hillclimb events at Pikes Peak have challenged drivers from across the globe as they race against the clock to reach its summit. With today’s pack, this infamous route comes to DiRT Rally and gamers are able to test their skills on both full asphalt and a version featuring a challenging mix of asphalt and gravel.

Also included in today’s content update are three iconic, mouth-watering Hillclimb cars:

  • Peugeot 405 T16 PP
  • Audi Sport quattro S1 PP
  • Peugeot 205 T16 PP 

The Pikes Peak pack is the first in a series of free updates that will be regularly added during DiRT Rally’s Steam Early Access Phase.

With DiRT Rally, Codemasters has captured the essence of what makes rally unique – that sense of trying to remain in control of your emotions, as you hurtle along dangerous, undulating roads at breakneck speed, aiming to squeeze everything out of your car whilst knowing that one crash could irreparably harm your stage time. It’s the ultimate test of a driver’s skill, and it’s the ultimate in high risk, high reward gameplay.

The community is DiRT Rally’s co-driver and their feedback is helping to shape the evolution of the experience. For players joining DiRT Rally in Early Access and the road ahead, the team want their feedback. They’ll be helping to test theories and providing vital data that will help to refine DiRT Rally.
