DIRT: Colin McRae Off-Road Interview + New Screens

IGN gets an interview with Codemasters to talk a bit about their next-gen rally game. Most of the discussion is about the Neon Engine, a brand new tool developped by Codemasters and Sony.

Funny detail : when codemasters asked about using this tool for multiplatform games, sony said "it's ok, go on guys"

The screenshots are really impressive and Motorstorm may look a bit owned. That said, those 2 games should have completely different gameplays and philosophies, so there may be way enough room for both.

The story is too old to be commented.

Good interview. Looks like a little different kind of rally game than Motorstorm, IMO. This looks like more of a rally Sim, versus Motorstorm is pure arcade. Both will be fun, but this will probably be a little more realistic. Those draw distances are insane and the detail in them is amazing. The textures are looking pretty good too, nice engine.

I agree with you.

Motorstorm is arcade, this is rally sim. Thank god this is multiplatform, it looks amazing.

Grand Raid Offroad will own or be as good as these games.

You talk about damage and handling as if i was foolishly boasting about a game that didn't offer the same capablites. You should check out the links i provided on the other posting on this story in pending stories before there gone
