Create millions of mud-caked routes across multiple nations, watch your truck take realistic damage mid-race, and keep coming back to crush the daily, weekly, and monthly challenges. Rally racing doesn't get more intense than this.

The game packs in 50 off-road cards from Fords to Audis that will fit any player's preference. DiRT 4 is accessible for anyone at first, but you'll develop your own distinctive racing style as you learn more skills and techniques. The game includes rally route creation tools where you can build your dream racing courses, as well as compete in daily, weekly, and monthly challenges while racing against other players around the world in cross-platform leadership boards.

Dirt 4 does a great job of walking you through the driving techniques in the game, but the co-driver's notes are also absolutely vital to getting through stages both quickly and in one piece. Tune your ears to suck in what your co-driver is saying, get in the zone and your hands will follow.

From The Manufacturer

Dirt 4 challenges you to “Be Fearless” by capturing the thrill, emotion and passion of off-road racing. It recreates the heady mix of adrenalin and fear that comes from powering around a blind bend and the rush you feel going for a last ditch overtake when there's not enough room on the final lap of a race. Off-road racing is about more than perfect cornering, it's about heart-pounding, split-section decision making where bravery brings reward.
