Dirt Rally 2.0

Six Hottest Video Game Releases in 2019

Release Date: 26 February 2019

Platforms: PS4, Xbox One, PC

If driving video games are more your thing then look no further than Dirt Rally 2.0.

Take to the wheel across tracks in New Zealand, Argentina, Spain, Poland, Australia and the USA and enjoy cruising in a choice of over 50 cars.

This version focuses on the long game so the track degrades and the grip evolves as you race.

Damage to the car also carries over from event to event so you better get the hang of ‘My Team’ mode to engage the right specialists to keep your car in tip-top condition.
