DiRT 5 Career Mode Revealed by Codemasters

June 9, 2020

DiRT 5 Career Mode

After an initial tease in May, today Codemasters delved extensively into what players can expect in the DiRT 5 career mode when the game launches in just four months.

The biggest reveal appears to be that DiRT 5 will include a deep narative with voice actors Nolan North and Troy Baker driving the story. Yes, that’s Troy Baker from The Last of Us and Death Stranding, and Nolan North from the Uncharted series, Marvel games, and much more.

The DiRT 5 career mode will include over 130 events throughout nine race types with choice-driven progression in typical DiRT style. There will also be special events depending on which events you complete, a new in-depth sponsorship system including real-world brands with special rewards, and last but not least for a lot of fans, split-screen co-op is back with up to four players, and your friends are able to drop in on your career mode whenever you want to race with you in any multiplayer event.

We’re looking forward to checking out some in-game footage of DiRT 5 as it comes closer to its launch, as right now it’s looking more like DiRT Showdown 2 than a traditional DiRT game including some true rally events. DiRT Rally 2.0 was a great success, but we still hold some hope that the main DiRT games will still include the rally that created the success of the franchise as it moved away from using the Colin McRae name.

So far from what we can tell, events will include Rally Raid, Stampede, Gate Crasher, Sprint, Circuit, Ultra Cross, and more, though these are all from a specific chapter called Showdown, so time will tell whether we will see a specific chapter dedicated to pure rally.

Expect DiRT 5 on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 in October 2020, while the game is also expected to launch on the next generation Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 consoles, though there’s no official word on whether they’ll be launch titles just yet.
