New DiRT Showdown Trailer Gets Smashy
Written Wednesday, March 14, 2012 By Richard WalkerView author's profile
This latest DiRT Showdown trailer is a proper fender bender, solely featuring battered-up old bangers smashing into one another in the game's Demolition Derby arena, where the last man standing is presumably the winner. That's how it works, right? Or is it the first driver to set their car on fire? No.
Anyway in the video, you'll see some work-in-progress gameplay footage from the Demolition Derby mode, which supports eight drivers in a crash-happy game of elimination. Points are awarded for hits, knock-outs and for owning the ring, meaning only the strongest and best drivers will survive.
DiRT Showdown is filled with pyrotechics and all manner of stunt-laden events, including Hoonigan, Full-Contact Racing and of course, Demolition Derby. It'll feature split-screen multiplayer, eight-player racing online and local quick-fire party games. You can also issue 'Showdown Challenges' to your friends and show off your destructive prowess using the game's YouTube integration.
DiRT Showdown will be bending fenders when it launches in May 2012. Check out the new crash-tastic trailer below.
