Press Release

30thMARCH (2pm UK) – Codemasters® today released a new DiRT 3™ gameplay video, showcasing the game’s sensational Group B Rally discipline. The ‘Group B Rally’ video features iconic rally cars like the Audio Sport quattro Rallye and Lancia Delta S4 hammering through forest roads and across arid scrublands, recalling a golden age of the sport. The new video is now playing at

Group B is synonymous with a short-lived period in Rally where light regulation and few restrictions on car development led to manufacturers producing some of the most exciting cars that the sport has ever seen. Group B cars have since entered Rally folklore since cars with their astonishing power couldn’t have been developed during any other era of the sport. Sadly, these iconic cars were involved in an increasing number of accidents, which resulted in the banning of Group B Rally in 1986.

The gameplay video showcases these super-charged icons of Rally being put through their paces in wide ranging conditions, from tarmac to dirt and snow. In DiRT 3, the Group B discipline gives players the ultimate test as they jump behind the wheel of some of the most famous cars to compete in the sport including the Ford RS200, MG Metro 6R4 and Peugeot 205 T16 Evo 2.

“The legendary Group B cars are some of the most sophisticated rally cars ever built,” said Paul Coleman, Senior Games Designer on DiRT 3. “Their raw power and unbridled speed make them a real challenge. They definitely separate the men from the boys.”

DiRT 3 will feature the most amount of Rally content to feature in the series to date, accounting for 60% of its extensive career mode. With rally stages set across three continents, players will learn to master tarmac, gravel and snow in dry and wet conditions for the most authentic rally experience.

The ‘Group B Rally’ video is now showing at where fans can keep up to date with the latest news, screens and videos straight from the studio. Set to raise the bar for authentic and accessible off-road racing again, DiRT 3 is now in development at Codemasters Studios for a May 24th2011 release for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft®, PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system and PC Games For Windows® LIVE.

"Beenox is once again taking a fresh and different approach to bring a fast-paced and high-octane adventure and unexpected story to life in Spider-Man: Edge of Time."
