Dirt Rally 2.0 is a racing video game focused on rallying and rallycross. Players compete in timed stage events on tarmac and off-road terrain in varying weather conditions. The game features stages in Argentina, Australia, New Zealand, Poland, Spain and the United States. Codemasters also announced plans to expand the game through the release of downloadable content. Dirt Rally 2.0 also features cars and circuits from the FIA World Rallycross Championship.
The game features a new weather modelling system where changes in the weather will affect the relative level of grip and require players to take a more nuanced approach to driving. The weather will also affect visibility in stages. The surface of the stages is also subject to degradation; as more cars pass over a stage, the road surface will start to shift and break up, affecting grip levels.
The "My Team" mode introduced in Dirt 4 will be expanded upon, requiring players to hire specialist engineers to maintain the car. Damage sustained during a rally will carry over from event to event. Players will also be able to make a wider range of strategic choices, such as tyre compounds; softer tyres offer more grip but wear out faster, while harder tyres are more durable but produce slower stage times. Codemasters is planning to introduce a more comprehensive tutorial for setting up the car to make the process more accessible for newcomers, amateurs and players who have been deterred from exploring setup options in the past.
