COLIN MCRAE RALLY LAUNCHES TODAY ON STEAM, COMBINING ORIGINAL SERIES’ GAMEPLAY WITH SLIGHTLY SHINIER HD GRAPHICS

31st July (10AM UK) – Today Codemasters has gone flat out for #ThrowBackThursday by releasing Colin McRae Rally on Steam for Windows PC and Mac, priced at just £4.99.

The game features gameplay, handling, physics and content inspired by PlayStation One classic Colin McRae 2.0 and upgraded with newly re-mastered audio and objectively fancier 1080p HD graphics for players to enjoy legendary retro rally racing on today’s generation of home computers.

In Colin McRae Rally, Gamers will speed through 30 classic rally stages with a combined distance of over 130km in four legendary cars: the Ford Focus, Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution VI, Lancia Stratos and Subaru Impreza. To help players commit through each and every stage, professional Rally co-driver Nicky Grist reads pace notes as gamers blast through the Australian outback, climb the mountains of Greece and barrel through the tight and twisty tarmac roads of Corsica.

Colin McRae Rally includes quick races, single stages, rallies and an extensive championship. Players can unlock achievements and play on their gamepad, with racing being especially engaging on a controller’s d-pad, as it would have been played on PlayStation. The release follows the Colin McRae Rally’s appearance on iOS last year, which quickly became a number one chart success in many major territories across the world.

Colin McRae rally is available today from Steam for Windows PC and Mac. Gamers can find out more by speeding over to www.colinmcraerally.com and keep up with all the news from the studio on Codemasters’ off-road games at www.facebook.com/dirtgame or follow the team at www.twitter.com/dirtgame
