DiRT 2 PC dated for Europe

DirectX 11 under the hood.

Codemasters will release the PC version of Colin McRae: DiRT 2 here on 4th December.

The rally game is among the vanguard supporting new DirectX 11 improvements. Yes, that means hardware tessellation for better water and crowds; Shader Model 5.0 depth for snazzy shadows; and multi-threading for lots of threads.

We've stuffed some screenshots into our Colin McRae: DiRT gallery for you to look at.

DiRT 2, "a fine sequel", zipped out on console in September. Whether the PC market, traditionally a little more hardcore, will welcome Codemasters' tend toward accessibility remains to be seen.

Head over to our DiRT 2 review for a full analysis.
