DIRT 5 Out Now in All Territories

Thursday 19 November 2020 (8:00 UK GMT) – Having launched to critical acclaim, Codemasters® today celebrates the worldwide release of DIRT 5™ on PlayStation® 5. Developed by the Codemasters Cheshire studio, the PS5 version delivers amplified 4K, 120fps racing, with even greater sense of feel and immersion courtesy of the DualSense™ controller.
DIRT 5 on PlayStation 5 is next-generation racing right out of the gate. Boasting a 120hz mode, it provides the smoothest gameplay with even greater response to the track surface. The DualSense adapted triggers enable players to feel the world around them, and with the increased framerate, players are immersed in the environment like never before. Plus, with faster load times, players spend more time in the heart of the action.
DIRT 5 offers a fun, amplified racing experience across 70 routes in 10 global locations. The game boasts 13 vehicle classes from extreme rock bouncers to modern rally cars. It has also received plaudits for its innovative Playgrounds mode that allows players to Create, Share and Discover custom arenas across three event types: Gate Crasher, Smash Attack and Gymkhana.
“The response from critics, content creators and players has been incredible, and the global launch of DIRT 5 on PlayStation 5 is the icing on the cake,” said Robert Karp, DIRT 5 Development Director at Codemasters. “Players will experience fast, smooth gameplay and the DualSense controller offers a unique level of immersion that radically changes how DIRT 5 will be enjoyed.”
DIRT 5 is available now across Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation® 4, PlayStation® 5 and PC via Steam. A Google Stadia version will launch in early 2021. The game supports Xbox Smart Delivery and PlayStation’s free upgrade when players upgrade to an Xbox Series X|S or PlayStation 5*.
