After Codemasters teased a new Colin McRae Rally or a possible reboot of Colin McRae Rally 2.0 yesterday, it was announced that the game was only coming to iOS device, which sucks, was hoping for a HD remake.
The game will be available on iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch devices for just £2.99 / €4.49 / $4.99. The game will feature tuned and upgraded content from the 2001 classic, featuring over 30 classic stages (130km in total), four legendary cars, the Ford Focus, Mitsubishi Lancer Evo VI, Lancia Stratos, and the Subaru Impreza. You will be blasting your way through Australia, Greece and Corsica just to name a few places.
Peter Harrison, Senior Producer on the game, made the following comments.
"It's an exciting challenge to bring Colin McRae Rally to iOS for the first time."
"We wanted to make tackling every turn and jump of the point-to-point courses on your smart device as satisfying as playing those classic Colin McRae Rally games on home consoles of the day. We've worked hard to make sure that the physics and car handling systems let you feel the wheels gripping and slipping on different surfaces like gravel and asphalt. We've also paid attention to improving the graphical models and textures to look super-sharp on today's screens, along with sourcing high quality engine sounds."
So there you have it, massive disappointment that it's only coming to iOS, would have been great to see something like that coming to the PC with a HD remake, alas, apparently Codemasters only want it on the Apple family.
