Dirt 4 will have both a special edition and a day one edition, developer Codemasters announced today.
The day one edition includes the base game, a special Founder icon, an exclusive Hyundai R5 rally car, and a unique event. The details of this event weren’t shared, but it’s described as a Hyundai-focused one that will only be available from June 9-11.

As for the special edition, this will come in two forms. Both feature the day one edition’s bonuses and a booster pack that consists of a “unique team offer, staff, and facilities bonuses.” One special edition comes with a standard case, while the other comes inside a steelbook and will only be sold at select retailers that are still be to announced.
In addition to this news, Codemasters released a trailer that sees developers and real-world rally drivers talking about Dirt 4’s Your Stage feature. This is the new track-generation tool that procedurally creates a new challenge for you to tackle based on your specifications.
“Your Stage is something that we have been working on since the launch of Dirt 3 in 2011,” explained chief game designer Paul Coleman. “It allows players to generate an almost infinite variety of stages at all of the rally locations in Dirt 4. It’s a revelation as now our players will get the thrill of driving a new stage whenever they want.
“It is extremely simple for you to create a stage but, behind the scenes, we have an extraordinarily complex series of rules and algorithms that put these routes together. Your Stage creates such a huge variety of routes, some that we would never have thought of crafting before, and they’re amazing to drive.”
