DiRT3 Newsletter - February Update
The brave could take on DiRT 3 consultants Ken Block and 2009 IRC Champion Kris Meeke in our special time trial tournament. But this was no ordinary race.... this competition was run on a highly accurate D-Box motion platform that replicates every knock, gear change and surge in acceleration for the player. It's the closest you can get to rallying without getting in a car. You can see Kris Meeke being thrown around in the D-Box in this awesome video recorded by David Dwyer.
Over on our YouTube channel we've uploaded 5 brilliant videos covering Rally, Gymkhana, pure gameplay, and even an interview with Ken Block. As a special treat there's also an extended developer Q&A video that we made just for you. With a ton more videos to come which will take you behind the scenes with DiRT 3.
DiRT 3 hit the iconic Battersea Power Station in London this month to reveal all at a preview event for the Press and Community. Special guest appearances included WRC Drivers Ken Block, Kris Meeke, and Mikko Hirvonen. Ken took to a specially constructed dirt car park to perform one of his infamous Gymkhana runs as he hooned around a host of spectacular obstacles. You'll be able to see if you can match up to Ken at the DC Compound in DiRT 3, set around the very same location.
There are plenty of reviews, photos, and videos from all the media and guests that attended all over the web and we've selected the best of the bunch for you:
