DiRT Rally

DiRT Rally hurtling to macOS this year

Published On October 10, 2017 | By Kirk Hiner | Macintosh

Its Mac release was a foregone conclusion, but Feral Interactive has made it official; Codemasters’ rally simulation game DiRT Rally will available for macOS later this year. And as you’d expect (and want) from Feral, the Mac version sill support Metal 2.

DiRT Rally has been praised for its realistic handling and pure focus on rally driving, making the racing game a bit more diverse and thrilling than what you get from stock car and Formula 1 racing.

DiRT Rally is the most authentic rally game ever made, with a highly sophisticated handling model that perfectly captures the exhilaration of driving cars at the edge of control while tearing along treacherous, undulating tracks at breakneck speed. Its high-risk, high-reward gameplay challenges players to learn and master three different disciplines: the point-to-point races of Rally, the tight circuits of Rallycross, and the legendary slopes of Hillclimb. 

Players will hurtle down the most dangerous tracks in the world, from the crumbling hillsides of Greece to the icy forest trails of Sweden and on to the rain-drenched dirt roads of the Welsh countryside. As they get to grips with rain, snow and fog as well as hairpin bends, slippery asphalt and loose gravel, players will fine-tune their cars to suit the terrain, weather and their own driving style.

Of course, the cars in DiRT Rally are just as diverse as the tracks and conditions. Players will get to select “… from over 45 of the most iconic cars from the 1980s to the present day, including the MINI Cooper S, Peugeot 205 T16 Evo 2 and the Lancia Delta S4 from the celebrated Group B era of rally racing.”

DiRT Rally will cost Mac gamers $59.99 at the Feral Store and Steam, and $44.99 at the Mac App Store—the price discrepancy likely reflecting the typical lack of multiplayer functionality in the Mac App Store version. System requirements have yet to be announced, but you should still go learn more at www.feralinteractive.com.
