DiRT Showdown players have already done plenty of damage since the demo launched earlier this month.
• Destroyed over three million cars in crashes
• Driven over five million miles
• Boosted for over 2000 days
These impressive results were recorded by RaceNet†, the free new online extension for Codemasters Racing games that tracks and rewards player achievements. RaceNet launched in Beta mode alongside the DiRT Showdown Demo and will add extra functionality to mark the retail release of the game.
New features in the update will include players being invited to take part in regular community challenges and RaceNet events and the ability to add other RaceNet members as friends. Gamers will be able to earn new RaceNet Awards and XP which can be viewed on a new Driver Profile page and additional new pages will reflect the status of Showdown Challenges and enable players to compare best times and scores with their friends across a range of game modes. Gamers can enjoy these new features and more by registering at www.racenet.com (see notes).
DiRT Showdown will deliver a new world of competitive and combative racing as players race, crash and hoon their way to ‘Showdown’ finals to perform in front of thousands of fans when it launches May 25th for the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PLAYSTATION 3 computer entertainment system and PC.
