Codemasters has lifted the wraps on DiRT Showdown, a spin-off from the main racing franchise, which aims to bring arcade elements to the spotlight with the inclusion of a destruction derby style races, Gymkhana and other arcade-esque influences.

Showdown will feature three types of racing events – standard racing, stunt-driven racing and another one about destroying other cars. You can hop into the online seatbelt along with eight other players – it also supports two-player split-screen.

This isn’t a sequel to DiRT 3, which means while Showdown will focus on being an arcade racer, expect DiRT 4 to be more about simulation…sort of.

DiRT Showdown is due out in May for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360. Catch the reveal trailer below.


Other than his excessively biased enthusiasm toward gaming, and technology behind the whole industry, there's a huge fondness inside that drives him nuts to pick up his keyboard and start writing for the love of it.
