First DiRT Showdown gameplay trailer outs 8Ball racing

Ahead of the May 25th DiRT Showdown release date developer Codemasters has released the first official DiRT Showdown trailer

 

Games developer Codemasters has unveiled the first official DiRT Showdown gameplay trailer with the 8 Ball mode of the upcoming addition to the rally orientated racing franchise showcased.

Following on from a trio of numerically titled DiRT titles, the upcoming DiRT Showdown release is to take a step away from the previous racing orientated sims opting for a more high octane approach to the lighter hearted more action packed arcade racing styles.

DiRT Showdown Release Date

Following the success of its trio of predecessors, DiRT Showdown will once again be headed up by rally poster boy and all-round driving nut Ken Block with a bevy of automotive beasts to be at the disposal of gamers from Block’s Gymkhana FOUR H.F.H.V. Ford Fiesta to a selection of muscle cars, vans and even the odd hearse or two.

“DiRT Showdown charges into the arcade racing space with a uniquely Codemasters feel,” said Mike Chapman, senior games designer at Codemasters.  “Whether players are using nitrous to boost, smashing into their opponents or pulling off stunts, DiRT Showdown’s fresh handling system and super-charged damage engine embed excitement into every event.”

A DiRT Showdown release date has been set for May 25th 2012 with the racing release to be made available for Sony PS3, PC and Xbox 360.
