It's the dirtiest drive of the year – Colin McRae: DIRT™ playable demos out now!

Release date confirmed for 15th June across all PAL territories on Xbox 360 & PC with a PlayStation®3 version to follow.

It's time to hit the tracks and taste the dirt as Codemasters launches the Colin McRae: DIRT playable demo, now available to download from Xbox LIVE® Marketplace for the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft®. There's also a PC edition of the demo, complete with a multiplayer event, available from

Confirmed for release on the 15th June 2007 across all PAL territories, Colin McRae: DIRT takes the rally king off-road in a multitude of mud-splattered race events and the demos deliver three to experience right now. There are Crossover, Hill Climb and C.O.R.R. (Championship Off-Road Racing) events in the Xbox 360 demo. The PC demo swaps mountains for multiplayer and enables up to 100 players to go head-to-head in a race for the best time over a point-to-point rally stage.

On both Xbox 360 and PC demos, the first event is a Crossover race with players competing against Colin McRae himself. Set in Germany, the Avelsbachring's smooth but twisty tarmac is the perfect battleground for a pair of Subaru Impreza WRX STI spec Cs; McRae's car complete with his 2006 Summer X-Games No Fear livery. Then, with nine other racers aggressively competing for position, it's a fierce C.O.R.R. competition in V8 650hp buggies at the Bark River Off Road Raceway, Michigan.

Next, the Xbox 360 demo takes players for a race to the skies with a Hill Climb event. Churning gravel in a Mitsubishi Evo IX, players race the final 1000 feet of Windy Point in the soaring heat of Arizona. The PC demo switches the hill race for an all-new multiplayer high, which sees up to 100 players competing for the record on the Sardinian rally stage at Mounte di li Conchi.

Colin McRae: DIRT is scheduled to skid into stores on the 15th June 2007 for Xbox 360 and PC with a PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system edition following shortly after. Get up to speed with the Xbox 360 playable demo now available from Xbox LIVE Marketplace and the PC demo available from
