Codemasters has announced a special batch of DLC for Dirt Rally 2.0 celebrating the career of late Scottish rally legend Colin McRae. The Colin McRae ‘FLAT OUT’ pack will be available from March 24, 2020 on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
The pack will be free to Deluxe Edition owners or players who have purchased any full season pack. It’ll be available as a separate purchase for any other interested players.
The ‘FLAT OUT’ pack features a new Scottish location – Perth and Kinross – with 12 routes, plus 40 scenarios inspired by moments through McRae’s career. Also included is McRae’s iconic Subaru Impreza S4 Rally and the lesser-known Subaru Legacy RS (which carried McRae to his first WRC rally victory in New Zealand in 1993). In total, nine cars McRae is famous for driving throughout his career will feature in the scenario mode.

“Dirt Rally 2.0 has been a wild and exciting ride, and the ‘FLAT OUT’ pack is the perfect way to conclude the journey,” said Dirt Rally 2.0 game director Ross Gowing alongside the announcement. “It’s 25 years since Colin became World Champion and the content is our tribute to the greatest rally driver of his generation.”
The much-loved original Colin McRae Rally was released in 1998 and quickly established an influential, long-running off-road franchise for Codemasters, though the last game to officially carry the Colin McRae moniker was 2009’s Colin McRae: Dirt 2. McRae was killed in a helicopter accident in 2007.
IGN called Dirt Rally 2.0, which launched back in February 2019, a first-rate return to the more serious side of Codemasters’ off-road catalogue and “the premier rally simulator of the modern era.”
