Gamescom 2020: DiRT 5 Arena Creator Mode Will Inspire You

When stadiums around the world are empty due to a global pandemic, Codemasters has decided to put their own spin (pun intended) on it by creating the DiRT 5 Arena Creator Mode, giving you access to a completely empty and dirty (whoops another pun!) stadium, allowing you to create your very own playground which you can then share online with friends and foes alike.

Cape Town Stadium is shown in the new DiRT 5 trailer released today which showcases several different game modes that you can utilise in the DiRT 5 Arena Creator mode. Shares and likes will play a large role in the new mode, with the most popular arenas displayed for everyone to enjoy.

Rocket Chainsaw has been following the development of DiRT 5 closely. Follow the links to learn more about the features, career mode, gameplay and car classes.

Check out the official DiRT 5 Arena Creator Playgrounds Trailer below, and make sure you watch until the end for a spooky surprise!



Design your dream racing event and tear up incredible user-created arenas in Playgrounds, the brand new mode for DiRT 5.

From custom gymkhana arenas, to bespoke time trial races, to thrilling treasure hunt events, use a huge suite of objects – from drift zones and jumps, to rings of fire and loop-de-loops – to invent unbelievable and unique Playgrounds. Browse our database of player-generated designs to constantly find new racing experiences, with Featured areas regularly updated to showcase the very best creations.

Playgrounds is included in all versions of DiRT 5, and the creations of players on current-gen consoles will be carried over when you switch to next-gen consoles!

DiRT 5 is scheduled to launch on the 9th of October on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Windows PC platforms with planned support for the next-generation Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5. For more information, visit the official website.
