Colin McRae Rally 3 to feature Dolby Sound
Codemasters has today announced that Colin McRae Rally 3 will support Dolby Surround Sound. It claims that the audio will allow players to know if they've scraped the side of their car or hit something in the road that doesn't need your attention. Apparently, the effect is similar to having a speaker positioned on each of the four wheels of your vehicle.
"The effect is incredible and we reckon it's the best audio in any motorsport game," said Guy Wilday, producer of the Colin McRae Rally series at Codemasters. "The audio technicians have gone for perfection all the way through the development of the game's sonics--from the recording of sound effects using a rally-spec Ford Focus, through to this incredible sensation of surround sound."
The Playstation 2 version of Colin McRae Rally 3 is expected to be released spring 2003. Stay tuned for more information.
