Dirt 3 1

Codemasters have announced that Dirt 3 is due to come out on May 24, and have released a couple of shiny new screenshots showing a British Peugeot and an Italian racer blasting across the desert. You'll find them below.

Dirt 3 is set to return the focus of the series to Rally racing, but has thrown in a few nifty extra modes, like Gymkhana, in which drivers must race around stunt courses in the fastest time possible, executing drift turns, doughnuts and jumps as they go. For more on the game, check out the Dirt 3 site. The images are below. Click them and lo they shall become mighty and huge.
