Over the weeks and months since Codemasters released DiRT Rally 2.0 on Xbox One, PS4 and PC, players have been given the chance to enhance their game with all manner of DLC additions. With cars and tracks aplenty, it’s been a good time to be a DiRT racer. Now though Season One is fast coming to a close, and from June 4th, Season Two of DiRT Rally 2.0 will kick into play.
Once more this will see more cars, liveries, environment and tracks delivered, with every other week seeing big content drops. This time round there is going to be a focus on rallycross, whilst traditional Rally fans will no doubt be delighted with the inclusion of the Wales Rally and the Porsche 911 SC RS.
New content will be released as per the following schedule:
- Week 1: Peugeot 205 T16 Rallycross, Ford RS200 Evolution, Special Livery
- Week 3: Latvia RX

First seen in DiRT 4, Group B rallycross cars are celebrated in Season Two with the inclusion of the Peugeot 205 T16 Rallycross, Ford RS200 Evolution, Lancia Delta S4 Rallycross and the MG Metro 6R4 Rallycross. With improved handling and graphical overhaul, the four vehicles will be a welcome addition when they are put through their paces on all rallycross circuits including the two brand new tracks, Bikernieki, Latvia and Estering, Germany. The new tracks are available weeks three and 11 respectively.
Having worked as DiRT Rally 2.0 Handling Consultant, Ryan Champion’s Porsche 911 SC RS complete with the East African Safari Classic Rally livery will be available as part of the week five content. This is in addition to the fan favourite location, Wales, which will be available two weeks later.
“Season Two is a perfect blend of new and old and there is something here for everyone,” said Ross Gowing, Game Director. “Fans will be thrilled at the return of the Group B rallycross cars and we’re excited to give our community two new circuits in Latvia and Germany. Although our primary focus for Season Two is on rallycross, we haven’t forgotten our rally purists, and we know from fan feedback how much they love taking on the tough Welsh terrain and what better way to do it than in Ryan Champion’s Porsche 911 SC RS.”
So how do you get involved? Well, those racers who have bought the Deluxe Edition will receive all content as part of their Season Pass. Running in the same vein as that of Season One, players who own the Day One or Standard Edition will have the opportunity to purchase each season and piece of content separately on their digital store of choice.
