Even though Dirt 5 released back in November, developer Codemasters is bringing major improvements to the overall gaming experience on the PS5 this July 20th!
This mighty update will bring with it a new DLC pack called the ‘Super Size’ content pack, which will be free for Amplified/Year One Edition players or can be purchased off the PlayStation Store.
27 new events, and four additional extra-large cars to tear up the tracks with: the Bentley Continental GT Ice Racer, Armada Rock Racer, Rezvani Tank, and Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport Baja Concept. Fresh liveries for each of the cars, two extra selectable sponsors, and customisation items are all included, too.
There will also be free content for everyone on the PS4 and PS5!
The Parts Unknown Playgrounds Pack adds more objects to use in our custom arena creator mode, all themed around space and sci-fi influences. Also in Playgrounds, we’re adding unique Weekly Challenges and Creator Rewards, to offer more competition and incentive to use all aspects of the mode.
Elsewhere, more iconic liveries are available for five different cars, another five Trophies have been added, and finally there’s the small matter of two brand new circuits! The first additions to our track list since launch, check out San Conrado and Rio Seafront, both winding through the beaches and jungle of Brazil
Now to what all of us PS5 really want to know about: the improvements to the DualSense controller! Haptic feedback and the adaptive triggers are both being revamped to give gamers an even more realistic experience than ever on the PlayStation 5.
Along with all of that, players on PS5 will feel more connected to Dirt 5 than ever before with this update, as we implement full haptics and adaptive trigger support for the DualSense controller. These enhancements allow Dirt 5 to give you more feedback throughout every event. Notice the changes in traction across different surfaces, feel the brake trigger pushing against you as you slow down, sense the clunk of a gear change, and find the limit of adhesion as you steer and accelerate through corners.
Haptic feedback and adaptive triggers will help racers make the right decisions and maintain control of the car, as Dirt 5 sends a bucket-load of information to the DualSense pad and through your fingertips. It’s a racing sensation that must be played to be believed.
Now combine that with improved 3D Audio through your headset and Dirt 5 might be the racing game to own on the PS5!
Plug in a stereo headset to your PS5 DualSense controller to add another layer of immersion when playing Dirt 5, as we’ve further refined our use of its 3D audio capabilities. Hear the roar of other cars racing all around you thanks to our dynamic audio range, and hear track-side speakers and spectators rise and fall in volume as you race by them. Our attention to detail with audio in Dirt 5, paired with the 3D audio support, creates a true soundscape that takes the overall experience up another notch.
Dirt 5 has been on my radar since it launched. The Brah thinks it might be time to finally buy my to the race, Brah!
