Codemasters have just announced another Dirt game, that isn't Dirt 4, it's Dirt Showdown. It's a spin-off from the main series that is said to have more destruction and less of the speedy driving.

Dirt Showdown has all of the 'extreme events' that were in Dirt 3, but now in a spin-off series instead of being one of the features in a game that wasn't completely enjoyed. Dirt 4 will continue to concentrate on the racing side of the game.

Showdown's extreme events are detailed below, caps and all:

NO HOLDS BARRED RACING EVENTS - Trade paint and use nitrous to blast past rivals in DiRT Showdown's racing modes. Courses are littered with obstacles, pinch points, multiple-routes and ramps to deliver adrenaline-fuelled racing across spectacular courses.

BONE CRUNCHING DEMOLITION DERBY EVENTS - Crash, smash and bash your way through a range of demolition derby events, pushing our stunning damage engine to its spectacular limits.

EDGE OF CONTROL HOONIGAN EVENTS - A new accessible handling system lets you go wild in free-roaming, freestyle stunt parks. Compounds flooded with obstacles play host to a range of new challenges, from performing trick runs to competitive stunt events, explorations challenges and more.
