DiRT Showdown is the new arcade racing game from the team that brought you the award-winning DiRT series, uncaged in 2012. Pick up and play controls combine with electrifying events, frenzied crowds and stunning graphics to deliver high octane, dive in and drive thrills from event one.

Dirt Showdown is performance is good across the board and the jump from 48 FPS to 56 FPS at 2560 x 1600 at the highest resolution is strong.

 

We'd like a couple more FPS, but considering our in-game settings are maxed out, a small detail change would bring those numbers up to playable levels.
