Codemasters has announced that the PC version of DiRT 2 will be delayed unlike its counterparts on the consoles, because they would like to incorporate the new DirectX 11 technology and performance enhancing features into the game.
“While the console editions of Colin McRae: DiRT 2 (also on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii, DS and PSP) will retain their September ship date, we believe that the DirectX 11 feature set is too compelling to ignore, especially considering how much more it can add to the visual experience for PC gamers. As a leader in digital racing entertainment, we are staying ahead of the pack by immediately taking advantage of new key technologies such as hardware tessellation, multi-threading and Shader Model 5.0 to deliver the most realistic, immersive and exhilirating racing experiences in the business. The fusion of DirectX 11 with Codemasters’ EGO Engine will raise the technical bar considerably in the racing genre.” – Byran Marshall, Chief technical Officer, Codemaster
In the mean time, they have posted 2 shots from the PC version to tease us till the game is published. The PC date is still unknown at this time.
It should work with DX10.. (dumbed down) but you obv would need to win the lotto soon to get one of the newer DX11 compatible vid cards. No lies, DiRT 2 looks crazy good but I still want to see F1 2010 in HD.
Worthplaying have released some more screenshots of Codemasters upcoming game Dirt 2. Most of them show the rallycross class cars on one of the X-Games courses, while one of them shows the Colin Mcrae rally car concept on a "proper" rally stage.
well he's always been part of their rally games and this is the first one since his death and they said they would call it Colin Mcrae Dirt 2 to honour him but that seemed to go out of the window so i guess they've included his car instead. I can see it being turned into Ken Block Rally in the future or something like that.
