Following the announcement of Codemasters latest entry into the DiRT rally game franchise, the team over in England have broadcast their first DiRT Show featuring the new game - with lots of interesting information revealed. Codemasters are obviously aware of past mistakes and have made considerable improvements recently in the way in which they communicate with the gaming public. In order to support the announcement of DiRT 4, the team recently ran a substantial 'Ask me Anything' session with Paul Coleman, giving fans a two hour window in which to pose questions to DiRT 4 Chief Game Designer Paul Coleman, an instrumental figure in the development of the DiRT franchise. To help out those of you who don't fancy trawling through the massive number of AMA threads, have a look at our summary article where we pick out the key facts and transcribe the AMA in a (slightly) more readable format.. Back on topic to the new DiRT show, the 26 minute video offers up an entertaining look behind these scenes of the new title, with interview segments featuring big name rally drivers such as Petter Solberg and Kris Meeke, plus chats with Coleman himself and Senior Games Designer Darren Hayward. Unfortunately the video is a little light on game footage from DiRT 4, but we do get an all too brief look at some impressive looking scenic shots from Australian stages throughout the video. Not much to go on, but still better than nothing I suppose!
