Codemasters showcases some of the new additions in a trailer, and this could help to become the best offroad driver.
Previously, they already showcased the list of cars, so it was expected that Codemasters would then concentrate on introducing the game modes. But first, we need to mention the two current-gen consoles. So far, we knew that the Xbox Smart Delivery program will be supported, meaning you can upgrade from the Xbox One version to the Xbox Series X port for free. Now, the PlayStation 4 > PlayStation 5 upgrade has also been confirmed, regardless if you buy the game physically or digitally.
„The trailer gives players an insight into the world of DIRT 5 and the breadth of content and features that await them, but we still have a few things under wraps including a feature never seen before in the DIRT series. If racing fans want some of the roughest terrain, extreme weather and thrills at every corner, then DIRT 5 delivers all of this and more,” said DIRT 5 development director Robert Karp in a press release.
Let’s see Codemasters says about the game modes: „Landrush – Circuit-based, rough terrain with jolting jumps and technically challenging sections. Weather and track conditions change on-the-fly during the event to mix-up this pack race mode. Rally Raid – Controlling machines built for extreme off-road, Rally Raid challenges are point to point with split routes, where drivers can grab some serious air. Ice Breaker – As the name suggests, players battle short circuits that take place entirely on ice. Throttle control and precise drifting are crucial to master this mode.
Stampede – Hard, unforgiving natural landscape, built for rough-and-ready machines. The layout is unmarked with major undulations over mud and sand. Path Finder – Another new game mode. Controlled speed and more strategy are the keys to success. Hardcore off-road terrain packed with steep jumps and rock-strewn paths. Sprint – Amplified racing at its craziest. 900bhp, enormous wings and four different sized wheels. Left turns only on oval and circular tracks. One for the drifters. Ultra Cross – Varied terrain and unpredictable circuit design. Classic rallycross amplified for the ultimate challenge. The crazy world of Gymkhana makes its welcome return for the first time since DiRT Showdown. Players jump, drift, and donut around purpose-built stunt arenas marked out with barrels, tires, and cones. String together tricks to trigger multipliers to hit a target score within the time limit. Gymkhana is as much about style as it is about substance.” Locations? Nepal, Arizona, Roosevelt Island, Norway, China, Morocco, Greece, Italy, South Africa and Brazil.
DIRT 5 will launch on October 9 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC (Steam), followed by a PlayStation 5 and an Xbox Series X version as a launch title. The Google Stadia version will follow in early 2021.
