Codemaster claims DiRT 3will have three times as much rally races and twice as much track distance as DiRT 2. DiRT 3 is slated to have 59 more tracks with 100+ different routes. The game will also feature a lot more rally racing as Codemasters is bringing the rally modes back to focus. The game will also feature improved weather effects and the game will also feature snow racing. Game will also feature video uploads right to youtube to show your friends some crashtastic action(expect to see our America's Game to return with DiRT 3 action!). It has been promised the game will feature move vehicles and will have WRC content. And lastely, the game will feature more damage effects and make you regret running other racers off the road.

The will include eight-player online multiplayer. All career disciplines will be available online, there will also be party modes available to play as well. There are four new Jam Session party modes which include Transporter, Invasion, Outbreak, and Cat & Mouse.
  • Transporter is a variation of Capture the Flag where you steal the flag from other players by ramming into them.
  • Invasion is a mode where both building and alien cutouts teleport into the stage and you get points for destroying aliens and lose points for destroying buildings.
  • Outbreak is an infection mode where one player starts with the disease and everyone else gets a few seconds to hide. The infected player then rams his opponents to spread the disease. Get points for infecting everyone or for escaping the entire round.
  • Cat & Mouse is a unique mode between two four-player teams. One player on each team pilots a Mini Cooper and the remaining cars drive more powerful rally vehicles. The first team who can successfully get their mini to the finish line wins.
