DiRT 3, which goes on sale on Tuesday May 24, requires an online pass for online functionality. All new retail copies of the game include a redeemable VIP code, while second-hand buyers will have to purchase the code.

Once redeemed players can access online multiplayer functionality and the game's YouTube upload service, allowing you to share videos with the world.

As well as all the expected rally events from previous DiRT games, DiRT 3 includes a Gymkhana mode. This special trick-based driving style adds a whole new dimension to DiRT's gameplay and is one of the standout features of the title.

On Xbox 360 the VIP code will cost 800 Microsoft Points. On PS3 it will set you back £6.29.
