Codemasters have revealed that the DiRT Showdown demo will launch worldwide today on Xbox Live, PlayStation Network and Steam for PC.
In the demo, the single player ‘8 Ball’ race, players take part in a chaotic, full-impact race in the shadow of San Francisco’s Golden Gate Bridge, using boost to sprint ahead of rivals and speeding through crossover points where drivers can dodge or takedown opponents.
Once players have completed the race, they can challenge a friend online to unlock the ‘Rampage’ multiplayer mode. In ‘Rampage’, eight drivers feed their appetite for destruction in an online demolition derby event, earning points for crashes, smashes and eliminations.
Gamers who download the DiRT Showdown demo are also invited to sign up for RaceNet*, the free new online extension for Codemasters Racing games, which enables players to track their Races, Rivals and Rewards.
Gamers who join RaceNet will also be rewarded with $20,000 in-game currency for DiRT Showdown when it races into retail on May 25th.
