The launch of World of Outlaws: Dirt Racing on PlayStation and Xbox consoles in September of 2022 was iRacing‘s first launch into the console racing market after they acquired Monster Games to kick off the year.
It’s been nearly half a year since the game was released, and since then, there have been a number of updates and add-ons to the title. For the last few months, things have been fairly quiet, but on Tuesday (21st March), iRacing announced that there are big updates on the horizon.
2023 SEASON UPDATE
The key part of the announcement is that there is a 2023 season update that’s been penciled in for “late summer 2023”. Alongside expected driver additions and livery updates for the top World of Outlaws series, the update is also said to include another new series and three new venues.
Those details, of course, have not been released yet. This update will be its own separate add-on, and that will follow when the 2022 Season Pass is completed.
This update will come to both PlayStation and Xbox titles. Besides the content, we don’t know what other updates the team has planned for the summer. No price has yet been mentioned, either.
Speaking of prices, the base game, which launched at $49.99 in September, will now be set to $39.99 moving forward.
The base title of the game comes with six divisions of racing, including Street Stocks, a pair of Late Models, and three classifications of Sprint Cars. The top Late Model car as well as the top Sprint Car are both World of Outlaws-level racing vehicles.
Players will also find 13 official tracks among the more than 40 tracks included with the base content of the game.
NINTENDO SWITCH PORT THIS FALL
While some fans may have rather seen a PC port of the game, others may be happy to know that Monster Games and iRacing have a Nintendo Switch port planned for later this year, specifically named to be coming in the Fall of 2023.
Nintendo’s edition of the game will include all of the content to date as base content, and that includes the two DLC cars of the Big Block Modified and the UMP Modified as well as the three DLC tracks of Limaland, I-55 and Lucas Oil. The Switch title will also get the 2023 update at some point as well.
