Codemasters have shared a new trailer for the upcoming Dirt Rally 2.0. The trailer dubbed Rally Through the Ages shows off some of the most iconic vehicles in rally history and gives us a sneak peek at the track degradation feature.

Dirt Rally 2.0 is just around the corner and the developer and publisher Codemasters are started to release more info about the game in the last couple of weeks. The latest trailer dubbed Rally Through the Ages introduces us to some of the most iconic vehicles in rally history which will be available to drive in-game.

The total number of new additions is four and each car is been driven on a different stage so we also got a closer look at New Zeland, Australia, Spain and New England tracks. The first one is a blue Alpine Renault A110 1600 S from 1960's rallying through dusty roads of New Zeland hills. 

After that, we take a look at Ford Escort Mk II taking on muddy curves of Australian stage while the 1980's Audi Sport Quattro S1 E2 is racing through the tarmac streets of Spain. Last but certainly not least, Colin McRae’s Subaru Impreza from 1995 shows us the autumnal setting of New England.

What's common for all these cars, except for being classics is that we get to see how they behave after Codemasters implemented their new track degradation feature. As seen in the trailer, roads get worse and become more demanding to drive as more drivers take their turns.

Codemasters have also been working with real-world rally driver Jon Armstrong to ensure that Dirt Rally 2.0 becomes the most authentic simulation it can be. We'll have to wait a little bit more to check it out ourselves as the game is scheduled for 26 February 2019 release on PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
