DiRT Showdown Demo Now Available – New Trailer

Posted on May 1, 2012 AT 07:24am

THE BUZZ: Codemasters Racing has released a demo for DiRT Showdown on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC.

The demo includes an 8-Ball race and an unlockable Rampage mode.

“In the demo, the single-player ’8 Ball’ race, players take part in a chaotic, full-impact race in the shadow of San Francisco’s Golden Gate Bridge, using boost to sprint ahead of rivals and speeding through crossover points where drivers can dodge or takedown opponents,” the publisher explains. “Once players have completed the race, they can challenge a friend online to unlock the ‘Rampage’ multiplayer mode. In ‘Rampage,’ eight drivers feed their appetite for destruction in an online demolition derby event, earning points for crashes, smashes and eliminations.”

EGM’s TAKE: This game looks amazing. Our favorite part of Codemaster’s other racing title GRID, was the destruction derby events. They are back in a big way in Showdown and there’s even more fun to be had than before. If you’re looking for a racer that takes itself a little less seriously, then Showdown is for you.

Will you be downloading the demo? Let us know in the comments below.
