IGN have posted an interview with Codemaster's Alex Grimbley, who talks about the upcoming Colin McRae: DIRT.
IGN: What has the Neon engine allowed you to achieve with DIRT that wasn't possible on current-gen technology?You can read the full interview here.
Alex Grimbley: All the benefits of the Neon engine are too numerous to list. There are however some obvious highlights, such as the real-time soft body car damage. In more simple terms, you will literally be able to wrap your car round a tree. Track and environment damage will surpass anything that has been seen before in a racing title, with Armco bending, wire snapping and wood splintering. All these effects will create a sense of realism that hasn't been seen previously.
