Codemasters® Launches New DiRT 3 DLC, Video and Double Fanbase XP Program

Los Angeles – July 26, 2011 – To coincide with this week’s X Games 17, Codemasters® announced that the X Games Asia Track Pack has launched today for DiRT® 3™ from the Xbox Live Marketplace and Games For Windows Marketplace (400 MSP) and PLAYSTATION NETWORK ($4.99). A new gameplay video showing how Tokyo is turned into the host of an official X Games event is now showing at www.youtube.com/dirt3game.

The release of the new DiRT 3 X Games Asia Track Pack coincides with X Games 17 which begins July 28th in Los Angeles, with Ken Block and Tanner Foust, who both star in DiRT 3, going for gold in Rally and Rallycross. The X Games Asia Track Pack extends DiRT 3’s Rallycross content with two multi-surface, mud-spattered circuits set in stunning Shibuya, the neon heart of Tokyo. This new X Games event is playable in single player, split-screen and online multiplayer and can be seen in action at www.youtube.com/dirt3game.

The X Games Asia Track Pack compliments existing official X Games content in DiRT 3. Gamers can take on the multi-track, multi-jump and multi-surface X Games event set around the LA Coliseum and test themselves on the snow and ice of Aspen, Colorado in DiRT 3’s Winter X Games event.

To celebrate X Games 17 and the launch of the X Games Asia Track Pack, Codemasters is running a Double Fanbase program for the duration of the competition. From midnight on July 27th until midnight on Sunday July 31st, all players will earn double XP as they play DiRT 3.

Continuing post-launch support for DiRT 3, Codemasters is also adjusting some of the game’s online playlists. Following feedback from fans and extensive data mining of DiRT 3 play statistics on EGOnet, a number of updates are being made, including the introduction of staggered starts for all Rally and Trailblazer stages in Pro Tour mode. Details on all changes will be made available through the game’s social channels at www.facebook.com/dirt3game and at www.twitter.com/dirt3game.
