Colin McRae: DiRT 2 dated

Mid-September for ambitious Codies racer.

Codemasters has announced that Colin McRae: DiRT 2 will be released on 11th September in the UK, three days after its American bow.

The game's due out on PS3, Xbox 360, Wii, DS and PSP at that time, with a Games for Windows Live PC version - with DirectX 11 support - out in December.

Developed by Codemasters internally, DiRT 2 sees you touring the globe partaking in a mixture of rally disciplines including traditional point-to-point and sexier events like rallycross, landrush, trailblazer and raid.

Striking out from your RV, which doubles as a main menu, you accumulate experience and cash to unlock new cars, or new modification packs that allow you to spec out any of your favourite rides for different tasks.

All of this is documented in our recent hands-on preview, and having just taken delivery - today, as it happens - of a new build of the game, we're expecting to bring you further impressions in the near future.

To see the game in action, you might like to check the videos page where there are numerous trailers, Digital Foundry analysis, and a studio visit EGTV Show from just prior to E3.

Or you could look in on the Colin McRae: DiRT 2 screenshot gallery to admire some new snaps.
