Extreme off-road racing, stunning real-world locations, four-player split-screen and an expansive narrative driven career. DIRT 5 looks set to deliver the ultimate off-road experience when it launches from October 2020 on Xbox One, Xbox Series X, PS4, PS5 and PC via Steam. There will also be a Google Stadia version arriving in early 2021.
Pushing on with the next generation of racing, DIRT 5 from Codemasters will be fully optimised for all platforms, to deliver a new heart-pounding off-road driving experience set against a sensory backdrop of vibrant visuals, an eclectic soundtrack, and dynamic weather conditions.
DIRT 5’s global journey will see racers taking in some of the most thrilling, exotic, and picturesque settings available, such as New York City and Rio de Janeiro alongside challenging events in remote areas of Greece and China. From there, players will experience the thrill of in-your-face extreme racing in a variety of vehicle classes from buggies, unlimited trucks, and rock bouncers to traditional and modern rally cars.
Keeping this all in one place will be the expansive narrative-driven Career, bigger in every way with event types and challenges across some of the toughest terrain. Before hitting the track though you’ll also be abl to get creative using the livery editor, with more customisation options than any previous DIRT game. And further to that, DIRT 5 features a non-linear progression path, so players can choose more of the events they want.
But it gets better and DIRT 5 sees the return of split-screen for up to four players, and this is just the first of the full list of game modes which will be announced shortly, including a new game mode focused on creativity and designed for social couch play with friends or global online battles against the best racers in the DIRT universe.
DIRT 5 isn’t just about looking great though and it also boasts a roster of voice talent led by the iconic Nolan North and Troy Baker. Together, and in their unique style, the dynamic duo guide and mentor players through the Career mode and feature in the DIRT in-game podcast series, including the voice talents of other celebrities from the worlds of racing and gaming.
“As a studio, we are big fans of DiRT 2 and 3. This game is our homage: a bigger, amplified DIRT off-road experience in a setting that is alive, challenging and fun,” said Robert Karp, DIRT 5 Development Director at Codemasters. “Whether you want to compete against the AI on some of the world’s most challenging environments or play a four-player split-screen game with your friends, DIRT 5 has you covered.”
