DiRT Rally has been out on PC for a few months, and Codemasters is now moving towards their console release of the game. In a brand new developer diary released today, the team discusses the gritty details of bringing back hardcore rallycross simulation.
In the video, which you can watch below, Codemasters goes over the process of making a focused and challenging rally racer in the vein of their earlier Colin McRae titles. It further shows how input from the DiRT community helped shape the core ideas behind the game, and how it tries to emulate the concentration and endurance that real rally racers need to win.

The stages in DiRT Rally are recreations of real-world roads, and were individually photographed on-site to imitate the terrain, curvature and weather conditions of each track in the game. Members of the real-life rally racing circuit also informed the design of the cars and the way they feel during gameplay.
The game's successful run on Early Access lead to its full release on PC in December of last year. It is now coming to PS4 and Xbox One on April 5.
