By picking up the Day One Edition of DiRT 4 when it launches this June, you’ll receive an exclusive Hyundai R5 rally car, access to a unique Hyundai event, and a Founder Icon, Codemasters and Koch Media announced today. Select retailers (TBA) will add a steelbook to the Day One Edition.

DiRT 4’s Your Stage feature allows you to “produce a near infinite number of unique stages at the touch of a button,” and Codemasters offered up this new trailer today:

To use Your Stage, you select one of the five rally locations in DiRT 4 – Australia, Michigan, Spain, Sweden, and Wales – and set the time of day and weather conditions. Then, you can change the length and complexity of the generated stage using sliders. If you aren’t happy with the result, hitting Generate again creates another one. You can then race, share, and challenge your friends on that stage.

Chief Game Designer Paul Coleman said:

Your Stage is something that we have been working on since the launch of DiRT 3 in 2011. 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.

DiRT 4 releases on June 6 in North America and June 9 in Europe for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. PlayStation VR support isn’t expected at launch, but Codemasters is considering it for post-launch.
