Codemasters has released a demo for DiRT Showdown worldwide. The racer's taster can now be downloaded on the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC via Steam.
Both a solo race and a multiplayer demolition derby event are included in the demo:
In the demo, the single player '8 Ball' race, players take part in a chaotic, full-impact race in the shadow of San Francisco's Golden Gate Bridge, using boost to sprint ahead of rivals and speeding through crossover points where drivers can dodge or takedown opponents.
Once players have completed the race, they can challenge a friend online to unlock the 'Rampage' multiplayer mode. In 'Rampage', eight drivers feed their appetite for destruction in an online demolition derby event, earning points for crashes, smashes and eliminations.
Those who download the demo will receive an invitation for RaceNet, the recently announced online hub that allows players to track their Races, Rivals and Rewards. DiRT Showdown, meanwhile, is currently scheduled for a release on May 25 in Europe and May 29 in North America.
