DiRT Showdown is going to be available on the new "Codemasters Racing" label following their announcment last month that they are only going to focus on their racing franchise.

Codemasters launch a Showdown demo today to get racing gamers into the swimg of what to expect from this fast paced derby racing simulator. Lets take a look at the DiRT Showdown system requirements to see if your rig has got what it takes to play DiRT...

DiRT Showdown Minimum System Requirements

CPU: AMD Athlon 64 x2 / Intel Pentium D @ 3.2GHz

RAM: 2 GB

GPU: AMD HD2000 Series / Nvidia 8000 Series

AUDIO: DirectX Compatible Sound Card

OTHER: Dual Layer Compatible DVD-ROM Drive

DiRT Showdown Recommended System Requirements

OS: Windows Vista / Windows 7 64 bit

CPU: AMD Bulldozer / Intel Core i7

GPU: AMD HD6000 Series / Nvidia GTX500 Series

Nvidia GeForce 8000 Series, 9000 Series, GTX200 Series, GTX400 Series, GTX500 Series.

Thanks goes to our own cham0d for getting this info

Aparently you can access the demo on Steam , although we cant see it there at the moment and the full DiRT Showdown has a release date of May 24th across mainland Europe, May 25th in the UK and ships to stores across North America on May 29th.

One other oddity we noticed is that the game suggests that it has a minimum direct X requirement of DX 11 and yet they also advise us that certain cards that do not have DX11 are acceptable as the minimum requirement.

So drop a message below if you have any further thoughts on this or if you spot the demo available on Steam. As always once you have played the game/demo add your FPS to DiRT Showdown Ratings page.

This looks so awesome after the amazing Dirt 3, I'm really looking forward to a destruction derby game built on this engine.

Found this: "The 1.16GB Xbox 360 demo is available now, though it is of course initially exclusive to Live Gold members. The PS3 demo will arrive with the PlayStation Store update this afternoon, and the PC demo will come via Steam whenever it jolly well pleases." I think that explains it :D

I'll just try the demo on my PS3 and judge the game from that :) Offcourse graphically it'll be a lot better on the PC but I'll see the gameplay and other really important things from the PS3 demo ;)
