Competitive console gamers rejoice! Virgin Gaming has announced that it is unleashing the intense, white-knuckle racing action found in Codemasters' DiRT 3 upon its competitive gaming community. Fans of the critically acclaimed racer which has shipped over 1 Million units worldwide will now be able to challenge their friends and other Virgin Gaming members to compete for cash, points and prizes in head-to-head matches and tournaments on VirginGaming.com.
DiRT 3, the latest entry in the game-changing series, puts players behind the wheel of more than 40 high-octane cars as they compete on world-famous rally stages. With a diverse range of game modes, including Rally, multi-car Rallycross and the freestyle driving discipline Gymkhana, the partnership between Codemasters and Virgin Gaming gives gamers brand new ways to determine who's the best of the best on tarmac, dirt, or snow.
Available for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, Virgin Gaming and DiRT 3 will let gamers of all skill levels meet and challenge each other in one of the premier racing videogames in the world.
"Being able to compete online for cash makes every hairpin turn, every chicane and every blind corner into an even more exhilarating experience," said Ed Newby-Robson, DiRT 3 Brand Manager. "We can't wait to see players putting their money where their mouth is, whether hammering down a tight and twisty rally stage, going for gold in our X-Games events or expressing themselves in Gymkhana."
DiRT 3, the most content rich racer ever to roar out of Codemasters, has seen players around the world drive over 150 Million miles since launch, spending more than 300 years racing and uploading over 200,000 highlight videos to Youtube in the process.
