DiRT Rally 2.0 will add three new Supercars to the franchise including the GC Kompetition World Rallycross team’s Prodrive-built Renault Megane RS RX, the Audi S1 EKS RX Quattro, and 2018 FIA World Rallycross Champion Johan KristofQuattros PSRX Volkswagen Polo R Supercar.
The Rallycross part of DiRT Rally 2.0’s will also be featured in the online multiplayer mode giving players the opportunity to race wheel-to-wheel with their peers in eight-player online sessions. Furthermore, a brand new Rallycross Championship mode has also been added to the game where players will be able to compete in full heats, a semi-final and the final structure of an official FIA World Rallycross event.
