Codemasters’ Dirt series has managed to secure a hefty audience over time and now, fans of racing franchise have been presented by DiRT 4. The game has the same essence of rally racing as other games in the series but if we compare it with Dirt Rally, it’s a little bland.

Performance wise, the game is looking solid and there have been only a few technical issue reports on PC platform. The Steam reviews for the game so far have been mixed and most people are comparing it with Dirt Rally which is not fair I believe. In any case, if you are facing any Dirt 4 error, crash or bug, you should check out the following listing for any relevant probable fix.

#1 Dirt 4 The Game Won’t Launch
The first thing you need to do is verify your game files. If some files were missing or corrupt, the client would download/fix them. It’s recommended that you run all the files present in the redist folder of your game’s directory.
