Codemasters have deployed their latest update to DiRT Rally 2.0 - hot on the heels of yesterday's mystery teaser about the future of the franchise.

Although to substantial in size, the new build release does come complete with some minor tweaks and adjustments to a number of gameplay aspects within the title - including the addition of special Petter Solberg liveries for three of the different cars already available within the game.

Other update highlights include miscellaneous graphical improvements within the game, details of which can be found in the update notes below:

Yeah, this annoys me to death with Dirt Rally. Why isn't it possible to have a 300 MB update like in other games? Why is it necessary that everything has to be downloaded again?
on codemasters forums they said that for some location updates they actually have to redownload the whole location again.

Yeah, I store all my games on a 2TB NVMe SSD which is limited in write cycles due to it being QLC, so 19GB instead of a few megabytes hurts it a bit.

Buy cheap, buy twice as they say.

It's definitely not going to be using 19 gigabytes. The new additions as small, but due to the structure of the changes, for example an adjusted stage needs to be reloaded in it's entirety. The size increase you get a your computer will be small.

With QLC NAND it's not about the size increase, which will admittedly be small if at all, but it's about the total size of "writes" given that QLC NAND has a small write endurance thus reducing the useful lifetime of the SSD.

If you are not writing/removing/writing 15-30 GB day to it, removing some files is not going to hurt. it's not an SD card.
Just make sure you never fill the drive, so there is enough overhead to copy with badd cells.

Every time I see an update for this game I hope that it is proper triple screen support.
Just can't believe they left it the way it is. Such a shame.

It's just not worth it for them to release updates smaller than 10GB, sorry.
