DiRT 4 came out on PS4 in June 2017 and it's a rally game different from it's predecessor DiRT Rally. It caters more to players not very familiar with rallying or just looking for a casual rally experience (much like what you could find from DiRT 3), but has plenty of different modes and gameplay improvements to make it fun for anyone.

[DiRT 4 is on sale on the US PS Store for $14.99 until May 22!

DiRT 4 is currently on sale on the UK and EU PS Store for a mere £24 for PS Plus members until 23/11/17 11:59pm]

Main features of DiRT 4:

There's a choice between Arcade and Simulation handling mechanics and one can easily switch between the two at any time between rally events should they wish to do so. The stage rallies have a feature called "Your Stage" that creates custom rally stages using certain settings and parameters chosen by the player or generated randomly, which means that there's a huge amount of partly similar (stages are made of bits and pieces and the same pieces show up in different parts of different custom stages), but unique rally stages in the game. There's a rich progressive singleplayer career mode, an optional fun trial mode "joyride" (returning from DiRT 3), a fully customisable lobby multiplayer mode "jam session" for all the available rally types, a competitive stage rally MP mode "Pro Tour", daily/weekly/monthly events with leaderboards & big cash rewards, and a solo practice session where you can hone your skills with any car you want. You can also build your own team, pick sponsors, create your team livery and use your personal rally cars in almost every game mode. There's plenty of livery and sponsor options as well as enough space in your garage for over 100 vehicles (after a few upgrades). Loan cars are available for use at all times if you want to try the cars out before you buy a personal one. Earning cash is a much faster process than it is in DiRT Rally, with also more vehicles and team facilities to spend it on. DiRT 4 also has a pretty damn good soundtrack for a rally game.

Personally, I love both DiRT 4, which is an immensely fun high-quality rally game, and DiRT Rally, which offers tons of enjoyment through a very authentic rally simulation. I continue to play both and would love to play either with any of you from time to time if you have or decide to get either DiRT game.

Any other rally fans among our racers? @no_snacks @Fido_le_muet @Banketelli @Potato @JuniorChubb @Mythaga  @Lann @zmurko @Crawford1872 @Onrefne @DeaD_GooN

Any of you considering getting DiRT 4 or even DiRT Rally, whenever they're on sale, if you're interested in rallying? Rallycross and landrush (buggy/stadium truck) with crew would be quite fun. I've got both (since I'm a big rally fan) and love 'em! Could run some rallycross/landrush championships if there was enough interest.

Once I'll be able to use my PS4 regularly again (more than once a month :( ), I'll look into other racing games for sure. Probably sometime in the spring.

I have heard great things about the Dirt series @Protocawl but it is not enough for me to invest in another racing game.

I have just got GT Sport and I can handle an hour or so of that but in general games that focus solely on racing leave me wanting a little more.

Sorry dude :(

Never really got into rally or rallyX games.  Enjoy watching rally videos on YouTube etc.  Those guys (and girls) are very skilled, but completely nuts. :lol: -  Plus the sound is awesome too.

Had a couple of rally games many years ago on PS2.  Played them for a couple hours tops, and never went back to them.

The RallyX section in PCars2 is the only bit of the game I haven't touched yet.  It just doesn't appeal to me for some reason.  Might be good fun with a wheel and pedal setup, but with a controller, it just feels weird or wrong to me.

When (if) I get a wheel, I will give the RallyX a chance on PCars2 to see what all the fuss is about.  If I like it, I may seek out a cheap copy of DIRT 4 or similar.

There was an update today that added Clubs to DiRT 4. It's basically the same as Leagues in DiRT Rally, which is custom championships among friends.

Got a cheap secondhand copy of this (xbone) and first impressions are that it's much more fun than Dirt Rally. I have it set on arcade rather than sim and am really enjoying it. If you're a bit rubbish at racing like me this is probably the rally game for you. The only thing I can fault is that the graphics are a little disappointing, it doesn't look that much better than a last gen game.

That's pretty much the perfect summary of DiRT 4. It suits the casual gamer a lot more than DiRT Rally.

      This was made for a Creators Event hosted by Lann, where each participant was given a large section of the map to create a deathmatch. Forced weapon is the Mini SMG, with extra ammo pickups located around the map. There are Armour pickups located at each teams start point. This should be the areas that most players respawn as well. Player limit is now 20 players

      Nestled in the picturesque Tongva Hills region, just north of LS, Marlowe Valley is home to a bountiful botanical wonderland. So try to not damage any of that local foliage while winding your way through wine country on this circuit combining natural roads and stunt props. Laps run about 90s depending on class.
      Another race heavily inspired by @MAHALOKA's stunt tracks. Starting on stunt props, transitioning to natural roads, and back around again. Kerb boosting is not recommended on most of the track. The track and land props are slightly uneven, making it difficult to get back on the track from the land props. Defaulted to Supers, but open to most classes. Sports Classics are my personal favourite, though Dunes and Monster Trucks are a close second.

      What would Overtime Rumble be like if everyone had rockets? Time to find out. --- Two teams of Ruiner 2000s take to the skies and battle to collect the most cash. Player carry limit is four packages. Can you complete all the jumps and survive long enough to make a four package delivery?
      This job seemed like a really good idea, until finding out that the Ruiner 2000s rockets cannot be removed. Several newer weaponized vehicles have a weapon option available now. Not sure if this job will be fun, or an absolute mess now because of the Ruiner's homing rockets. Teams start on opposing platforms with ramps similar to Overtime Rumble. There are ten packages atop Stunt Tube towers with varying sized heights and landing pads. One more package, for a total of eleven, is in the middle on the Maze Bank helipad. The only way to reach a package is to jump from the ramps or from a higher landing pad. Default setting is one round. First team to eight points wins or the team leading after eight minutes. Not sure how fast or slow the rounds will be with different amounts of players. (Rounds/Time might need to be adjusted.) Team bases are located on the "floor" of the map, below each teams ramp. There is a somewhat long Stunt Tube portion to get back to the ramps from the bases. This is because we are not able to use any Boost props in the Capture Creator. They are available in every other job type except captures.  There are RPG pickups at each player start point and beside each package. They are in attempt to balance out the Ruiner's power and give players the ability to kill themselves if they are trapped and need to respawn. Respawn points are at the top of the ramps and players will respawn in a Ruiner 2000. There seems to be a bug causing a small issue with the packages. If a player dies while carrying a package, the package can glitch through the props and land on the ground below. This causes the package to be unobtainable, as there is no way to get from the ground back onto the stunt props without respawning. Not sure if this is just a sporadic issue or if it will happen all the time. There should be plenty of other packages to collect, but if every time someone dies with a package it ends up being unobtainable, this job would be broken. If anyone plays this and has any feedback or suggestions, please let me know. From weapons, package locations, layout, prop colour, anything at all.

      The train was hijacked and the package is now held in the Dignity Village. The villagers have also made use of the heavy weapons from the cargo, and even managed to assemble a few of the anti aircraft trailers. Go in by air or pick up one of the heavy weaponized vehicles found nearby. Assault SMG and RPG. Only one bag available to pick up. 10 min. 30 players. Respawn in P-45 Nokota.
