After several hints throughout this week, Codemasters have unveiled their new reveal trailer for the forthcoming Colin: McRae: DiRT 3, courtesy of the ESPN X Games. DiRT 2 was one of my favourite racing games last year, so the announcement of a sequel already is exciting news indeed. I only hope this new instalment adopts a less Americanised approach than its predecessor, but fortunately Codemasters have hinted it will have British vibe this time round.
Racing driver Ken Block, who narrated DiRT 2 with no personality whatsoever, looks set to feature once again as the trailer depicts him putting a Ford Fiesta rally car through its paces across a South African dirt track before joining a Ford RS200 in a race on snowy terrain, a locale that was sorely missing in DiRT 2. The teasing trailer comes to a close by having the Fiesta drifting around an exploding truck, most likely hinting at a new race event for the final game.
As the trailer proclaims, DiRT 3 is set to be released next year.
