'Colin McRae Rally 3' Coming To PC This Summer - Screens

by Thomas on March 6, 2003 @ 6:57 a.m. PST

In Colin McRae Rally 3, players assume the role of Colin McRae in his pursuit for the World Champion Rally title. The game enables players to get close to the action with the enhanced damage engine, resulting in an intense and realistic racing experience.

The Colin McRae Rally video game series has shipped 6 million copies to date and is recognised as one of the games market's most valuable and acclaimed motor sport franchises.

Colin McRae Rally 3 makes a massive leap in terms of playability, motor sport detail, rich visuals and the perfect rally car handling the series is renowned for. Above all, it delivers a game that captures every drop of sweat, the 150 decisions a minute, and the teamwork that goes into actually being Colin McRae in recognition of his three years with Ford Rallye Sport.

Colin McRae Rally 3 has a level of visual and technical detail that surpasses any other racer. It provides a breathtaking sense of being on, and often, off the road in a fully weighted and authentically functioning Ford Focus RS WRC.

This level of detail effectively gives players a Focus simulator to take on the rally stages, which are all designed exclusively for intense gameplay. McRae's co-driver while with Ford, Nicky Grist, personally pace-noted every stage featured in the game as he would for a real rally.

However, it's not just the Ford Focus RS WRC that gets this incredible in-game replication. Beyond the main championship mode, you can drive all of the game's featured cars, implemented to the same standard as the Focus. Featured cars include: Mitsubishi Lancer EVO 7, Subaru Impreza WRX 44S, Citroen Xsara Kit Car, Ford Puma Rally, Citroen Saxo Kit Car, Fiat Punto Super 1600, MG ZR and the Ford RS200. Also featured are classic and bonus cars.

The main championship game is a gruelling series of races across eight international rallies: Japan, Spain, USA, Sweden, Finland, Greece, Australia and the UK are all included offering tarmac, gravel, dirt, and rain-soaked road surfaces.

The championship game pummels players through a three-year deal. Like the professionals, you'll compete in the full year and drive in every rally. Fall foul on a stage or damage the Focus beyond immediate repair and you'll be retired from that particular rally without the all-important championship points. The driving seat beckons at the beginning of the next rally, but points will have to be made up to stand a chance of becoming a champion.

Demanding total McRae commitment and total McRae determination, Colin McRae Rally 3 is coming to PC in the summer. For information, downloads, screenshots and to join the petrol-heads in the forum, check the web site at www.codemasters.com/colinmcrae3
