Block! Mirra! Tanner! Faust! Pastrana!

Codemasters has signed a deal with ESPN to put X Games stages in Colin McRae: DiRT 2.

The stages will be titled X Games America, X Games Europe and X Games Asia. They'll feature official branding and "infuse added realism by bringing the series’ unique action sports atmosphere to the game". Before you can compete in the X Games events you'll need to complete specific achievements in World Tour mode.

Well-known faces such as Ken Block, Dave Mirra and Tanner Faust will appear in the game, along with X Games 14 Rally Car Racing gold medallist Travis Pastrana.

Each even will consist of two knockout rounds - quarters and semis - followed by a fanl. Locations will include London, Tokyo and LA.

Colin McRae: DiRT 2 will be released for Xbox 360, PS3, Wii, DS and PSP on 11th September, with a PC version to follow.
