Accompanied by 50 drivers, including Ken Block, Tanner Faust, Dave Mirra and Travis Pastrana, players will take part in 100 events, each partnered with some of the smartest brands around. As players travel to the international each location on the DiRT 2 World Tour, they’ll park up at international race festivals that are packed with noise and atmosphere, with hundreds of people in attendance and bands playing live sets on nearby stages.

The action out on the track is hotter than ever too. With peerless visuals and lightning fast racing thrills, Colin McRae: DiRT 2’s drivers will be put through their paces in a variety of contemporary racing disciplines, including rally, rallycross and raid.
