DiRT Showdown Demo

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , on May 5, 2012 by getbent57

The demo for DiRT Showdown is now out.  First off it feels like a DiRT game but different as well.  They all ways have the coolest menu systems.  You start the demo with one race and one car (Once you challenge a friend you unlock a few more).  The race is the figure eight type.  Once you finish the race they want you to send a online challenge to an online friend to unlock multiplayer.  In the multiplayer you get to pick from four cars and enter a demo derby.  It was kind of fun.  The cars handle great.  Will need some practice if I want to get any good at the online demo derby.  From what I seen you can upgrade your cars.  All so level up just like the last game.  Do believe you will level up on and off line.

Another cool think is if you sign up for Codemasters Racenet you will get $20,000 of in game money and a new livery.  Just might do this.

No, I am not the one who is “now playing” DiRT Showdown.  It is not out until the end of May.  But over at GameSpot.com every now and again the have a “Now Playing” video.  Were one or more people sit down and play and upcoming game.  The newest one as you might have guessed is about DiRT Showdown (Video below or click > here).  The guy that is taking is kind of funny.  As for the game itself it a only an early build but you can see that it looks pretty sweet.  The video is about 27 minutes long.  Didn’t watch the whole thing because I want to see the game for myself then it comes out.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Have some DiRT Showdown news to share.  Next Tuesday (May 1, 2012) there will be a demo out out PSN, Xbox Live and Steam.  From the article,  it will “feature a solo and multiplayer event”.  So you will get to try two races (I think).  It will use their new RaceNet.  This seems to be the new tread in gaming.  What RaceNet does like many others like is an online “hub” that tracks you races, your friends races, rewards and the like.  It will be free, which is nice.  Even better news the game will be out May 25, 2012.  Can’t wait to try the demo.  I know what I will be doing next Tuesday.
