DiRT 5 Launch Trailer Races Onto Screens


It’s almost time for the DiRT 5 launch and so today Codemasters has released the official DiRT 5 Launch Trailer showing you how you’ll shred tires, wreck suspension and lose a panel or two as you race around the world.

The trailer shows the various vehicles and game modes that are available in DiRT 5 including the new Playgrounds mode giving you the ability to create your very own arena which you can then publish online and share with friends and strangers alike.

Rocket Chainsaw is busy racing away on the dirty roads ahead of the DiRT 5 launch to bring you an in-depth review, so stay tuned for more before the game’s launch next week.

The game will also launch a few days later on the Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 5, and you can check out some DiRT 5 Xbox Series X footage right here.

Watch the fast and frenetic official DiRT 5 Launch Trailer below:

 

DIRT 5 delivers breath-taking wheel-to-wheel pack racing on multiple surfaces including rugged terrain, harsh desert sands, snow, ice, tarmac, and more. Weather conditions change in a heartbeat, cars flip and crash as the action heats up, and players must keep their wits about them to stay in the race. With a variety of game modes including Career, Arcade, Time Trial and Multiplayer games, DIRT 5 is an adrenaline rush from start to finish. DIRT 5 also introduces split-screen which can be played offline in co-op and competitive modes for up to four players.

For those who crave variety, the trailer ends on the new Playgrounds feature. Create, share and discover custom arenas across three event types; Gate Crasher, Smash Attack and Gymkhana. All published Playgrounds are hosted online with a global leaderboard, allowing players around the world to upload an arena and post their best score.
