Colin McRae Rally 3 details
Codemasters announced today that it has taken a step forward in making Colin McRae Rally 3 more realistic in the way players assume the character. Players will now be able to set up their rally cars between stages and make any necessary changes and tune-ups. McRae will be able to ask his engineers to make changes and repairs to the car, focusing on the engine, the chassis, and the suspension. It seems Codemasters' goal is to distant the character from feeling they are only in control of the Ford Focus and not the driver himself.
"We want the game to give the player a real sense of being McRae and being part of an international rally team," said Guy Wilday, head of studio and producer of the McRae games a Codemasters. "Colin McRae Rally 3 is more than the 'start stage, race car, end stage' construction of its previous incarnations. So the rally driving is mixed with these sequences to provide the flow of a rally and create the long-term tension of the almost yearlong season."
Colin McRae Rally 3 is scheduled for release in North America on November 19 and in Europe on October 11. Stay tuned for more details.
