Vehicle Damage in DiRT Rally 2.0 Carries Across Multiple Races, Further Single-Player Details Revealed



DiRT Rally 2.0

DiRT Rally 2.0‘s chief designer Ross Gowing has revealed some details regarding the game’s single-player modes.

In a recent livestream on Twitter (embedded below), Gowing revealed that car damage will carry across several races, among a bevy of further information.

Similarly to previous games, the single-player mode will task players with climbing up the professional rally ladder which, in this title, has five rungs. Each step up will increase the difficulty and quality of AI, with players being tasked with holding their position at the top once they cement it.

Interestingly, car damage will carry over to each race in the game until repairs are made, with broken parts of the car influencing other areas of its engineering. For example, damage to a car’s radiator will cause engine problems, decreasing acceleration potential mid-race.

Even the most careful of rally drivers will suffer “wear and tear” on their vehicles, too, which Gowing states the developer endeavoured to make as realistic as possible. Overall, DiRT Rally 2.0 is looking to add an extra layer of strategy to its single-player modes, especially in the realms of damage and parts.

Report: Game of Thrones Creator Collaborating With FromSoftware



FromSoftware Game of Thrones

The writer of A Song of Ice and Fire, the book series behind the popular television show Game of Thrones, has reportedly been consulting on a FromSoftware title.

In a blog post on his official website, George R. R. Martin stated that he has “consulted on a video game out of Japan.”

Gematsu has reported that a contact familiar with FromSoftware—the Japanese development studio known for Dark SoulsBloodborne, and Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice—has shared that Martin is working with the studio on a project known internally as “GR.”

According to Gematsu‘s contact, the project, which has been in development for three years, is an open-world game and will feature horse riding. The player will be able to visit several kingdoms and obtain ability by killing their leaders. Hidetaka Miyazaki, director of some of FromSoftware’s most acclaimed titles, is reportedly working on the game.

Gematsu reports that the title will be officially announced at Microsoft’s E3 press conference later this year.

YouTube channel Spawn Wave reported in March about a rumour regarding a potential collaboration between Martin and FromSoftware, so this recent report gives even more validity to the speculation. However, without any official word, the news should be taken with a grain of salt.
