Dirt Showdown
Codemasters Studio Tour: Behind The Scenes Of The Home Of British Racing

Codemasters for quite some time have been the leading racing studio in the world when it comes to video games. Not content with delivering just one unique racing experience like most racing studios out there, Codemasters have had their fingers in a lot more pies in recent years. Whether you're talking about the arcade-awesomeness of the Grid franchise; the simulation-craziness of the official F1 franchise; or the wacky off-road racing of the DiRT franchise; they've certainly got all their - and yours! - bases covered.

We headed into Codemasters' Leamington Spa based studio last week to be given a behind-closed-doors tour and a look at the inner workings of the British developer and publisher. Guess what? We took a camera, meaning you can see what we saw... it's like you're in our heads... or something to that effect. After the reception to our Epic Games studio tour a few years back, we knew this'd be something you lap up.

Keep an eye out on PS3T next week for our impressions on the upcoming DiRT Showdown title, out this May. Until then, soak in the awesomeness that is our behind-the-scenes look at Codemasters' Leamington studio, with Director of Communications, Rich Eddy, talking us through every step of the way.
