It’s been 6 months since DiRT Rally 2.0 launched on Xbox One, PS4 and PC, and in that time the team at Codemasters have produced a ton of new content, with a couple of season passes providing new cars and rally’s to enjoy. But Codies obviously have big plans for their racer, and today can be found detailing everything that will be upcoming in Seasons 3 and 4 – just as the Estering becomes the latest content add-on.
Launching from 27th August, yet again we see a delightful combo of content types hitting home, with locations like Finland, Greece, South Africa and more playing host. There are new cars too, with Subaru, Peugeot, Volkswagen, Renault, Ford and Audi coming to the rally party.
DiRT Rally 2.0’s Season Three content will mix up rally and rallycross, take us to the Yas Marina Rallycross circuit and will be found providing access to F2 Kit Car favourites with the introduction of the Peugeot 306 Maxi and Seat Ibiza Kit Car.
It is due to release with the following from August 27th:
– Week 1: SUBARU Impreza (2001), Ford Focus RS Rally 2001
– Week 3: Argolis Greece, Special Livery Pack
– Week 5: Peugeot 306 Maxi, Seat Ibiza Kit Car
– Week 7: Yas Marina Circuit, Abu Dhabi, Special Livery Pack
– Week 9: Peugeot 206 Rally, Volkswagen Golf Kitcar
– Week 11: Jämsä Finland, Special Livery Pack
That will fast be followed by Season Four which comes about on November 19th:
– Week 1: Killarney International Raceway, South Africa
– Week 3: Lydden Hill, UK, Special Livery Pack
– Week 5: Renault Clio R.S. RX, Renault Megane R.S. RX, Ford Fiesta Rallycross (MK8), Special Livery Pack

As you can see, Season Four begins with a new RX location, South Africa, followed by Lydden Hill which DiRT Rally and DiRT 4 fans will know well. But further to that, Season Four also celebrates the 2019 FIA World Rallycross Championship season, with the latest spec of cars making their way to DiRT Rally 2.0.
“It’s been six months since we launched DiRT Rally 2.0 and the response from our community has been really positive,” said Ross Gowing, DiRT Rally 2.0 Game Director at Codemasters. “We spend a lot of time listening to our players and we’re delighted to bring them remastered classics alongside new vehicles and locations to give them a completely new experience. Seasons Three and Four are a perfect blend of classic and new with the likes of Greece and Finland which were established on the original DiRT Rally, through to new RX circuits in Abu Dhabi and South Africa. There is so much variety that will appeal to old and new players alike. We’re also delighted to update the FIA World Rallycross Championship with new 2019 vehicles as well as bodywork and livery updates.”
As per usual, DiRT Rally 2.0 players will have the opportunity to purchase both Season Three and Four when the time comes, along with seeing each individual weekly content drop available as a standalone purchase. We’ll be sure to remind you as and when each new smattering of content drops and when it is available from the Xbox Store or the PS4 and PC equivalents. For now though, make sure to take in our full review of the game on Xbox One and check out the multitude of previous content packs that have already massively enhanced the game.
Further to that though and if you are one of the many who have been enjoying the current season of DiRT Rally 2.0 content then you’ll be glad to hear that the Estering, Germany is now available for taking in. Priced up at £3.19, or as the concluding part of the Season Two content, the Germany RX at Estering places us onto the circuit that first hosted a rallycross event in 1972. Characterised by thick gravel sections, a difficult Joker Lap and a stunning high speed straight, it is one of the few places where rallycross cars can reach their top speed. You’ll find it available through My Team, FIA World Rallycross Championship, Custom Championships and Time Trial modes right now.
