DiRT Showdown Release Date Announced, Demo Confirmed

Posted on April 19, 2012 AT 07:51am

THE BUZZ: Codemasters Racing has announced the official release date for DiRT Showdown.

The game will hit stores and Steam May 25 in Europe and May 29 in the U.S.

A demo is also set to release May 1 on Xbox Live, PSN and Steam.

EGM’s TAKE: DiRT Showdown travels more down the arcade route compared to previous entries in the franchise, opting for higher octane events such as destruction derby and leaving the rally modes to take a backseat. DiRT 3′s popular Gymkhana event makes a return and will act as the base which the game is built around. If you’re a fan of rally driving, then maybe you should skip this entry and wait for DiRT 4, which the publisher promises will go back to the franchise’s roots.

Matthew Bennett, Associate Editor
Matthew Bennett finally got his big break with EGM three years ago, following years of volunteer work for various sites. An ability to go many hours without sleep and a quick wit make him ideal for his role as associate editor at EGMNOW.com. He often thinks back to the days when the very idea of this career seemed like nothing but an impossible dream. Follow him on Twitter @mattyjb89. Meet the rest of the crew.
