DiRT 3 Trailer Debuts On ESPN

The DiRT titles by Codemasters are excellent off-road racing games and we're expecting yet another impressive experience when the third iteration drops.

If you were watching the X Games on ESPN on Saturday night, you may have caught the very first look at DiRT 3. The trailer is below if you missed it; the action centers on the changing environments, obviously indicating the types of surfaces on which you'll have to race in the game. There's everything from rain to snow to good ol' dirt, but then there's that bit at the end where a tractor trailer blows up...not sure what that's about. It was a pretty cool stunt to wing back around underneath the busted trailer, though.

There's no doubt that DiRT 3 will be another highly accomplished off-roader, and we're going to be on the lookout for more info and details. By the way, is anyone reminded of the fake, fan-created Uncharted 3 logo when they look at the side of that car...? Or is it just me?

That's the Monster Energy Drink "M" and I thought of that immediately when I saw the fake U3 logo.

Do I think of the U3 logo when I see the side of the car? No. Do I see the Monster logo when I see the U3 logo... yes.

No doubt the game will be covered with red bull and monster logo's haha.

Well it's not just you, that's exactly what it reminded me of. Looks completely identical.

I've never played any of the dirt games and I didn't see any reviews for the previous ones when I followed the links and did a search, so if you're only slightly interested in off road racers is this this the series to get, is it better than motor storm?

Actually they don't look "completely identical". The fake U3 shows "III" and Monster uses the "M".

It looks fun, I haven't been able to try the first 2, but for awesome intense racing I am pretty excited for Motor-storm:Apocalypse.

Give them a try. I dabbled with the first one but 2 was so much fun. You can probably find them for $10 or less nowadays.

I played the demo for the first, but never got around to picking it up, but after seeing some reviews(from here) and some trailers I had to have it. So I went down and picked it up when it was a couple of months old. It is a very awesome game and it looks amazing. I am just a couple of trophies away from the Platinum.

If you haven't picked up Dirt 2, I highly recommend it. Dirt 3 is a First day pick up for me?

Now I will be playing three amazing racing games in 2011. Dirt 3, MotorStorm: Apocalypse and Gran Turismo 5.

The trailer looked real good. Too bad we don't actually get to play it as a side scroller. That would be pretty sweet.

Hmm, interesting trailer. What I would like to know is whether that was CGI or actual footage rendered from the real-time game engine. If that is real-time footage, then Ego has surpassed itself... incredible!

Q!

50 bucks says whoever did the uncharted 3 logo saw this video a little early and decided to do a prank.
just seems a little coincidental that the 3 green slashes on the side of the car are exactly the same as the ones in that logo.

anyway, im really looking forward to dirt i never got to play the sequel but i really enjoyed the original.
i remember playing ford rally championships on my old PC for hours on end when i was a kid.

The Monster "M" has been around for years and been seen in video games for quite some time now. lol

Why is there no mention of Colin Mcrae in the title or anywhere in this piece? I find it offensive after the man brought so much passion,people and gamers to rallying.

I'm really hoping this will be good.

These ones are for 'street' rally drivers.

Here's where the blown up truck came from. Notice the Fiesta in the video had Block on the side as well. Here's Block doing the exact same thing in an Impreza. Just jump to 3:55 but I'd suggest watching the whole video. He's one hell of a driver.
