Codemasters and Koch Media released a new dev diary titled “Be Fearless” for DiRT 4 today.

In the video, many professional rally and rallycross drivers discuss how they both handle and compete against fear while they are pushing to go faster win a race.  This reflects DiRT 4’s aforementioned tagline – Be Fearless. For those curious about this new installment in the DiRT series, here is an overview of the game and a list of its features from the developers:

DiRT 4 challenges you to “Be Fearless” by capturing the thrill, emotion and passion of off-road racing. It recreates the heady mix of adrenalin and fear that comes from powering around a blind bend and the rush you feel going for a last ditch overtake when there’s not enough room on the final lap of a race.
