Codemasters today announced DiRT 3, new sequel from their ultra-successful series of rally driving games. The company announced that the game will bring "more than double the amount of content", with races now taking place from "the traditional rally heartland of Scandinavia to the jungles of Kenya and the forests of Europe and the USA, taking players to the most dramatic, inhospitable and exciting terrain on the planet where only the most fearless drivers race".

Given the appearance of Ken Block in the game, and intro that now features Gymkhana, we were not surprised to see Codemasters putting a fully featured Gymkhana in DiRT 3. The game features multiple arenas "packed with props," i.e. a nice mode tailored to console gamers, with chained moves, challenges and many more.

Racing through Scandinavian forests with legendary Audi Quattro... can't wait!

Also new is the appearance of legendary rally cars such as Audi Quattro, Lancia Delta Integrale and many more, all of which are accessible through a new game mode.

One thing is certain, though? the author of these lines can’t wait for DiRT 3 to arrive!
