During today’s Inside Xbox stream, Codemasters revealed the next game in its long-running DIRT series: DIRT 5. And it looks fantastic.
Described as a “heart-pounding, off-road driving experience set against a sensory backdrop of vibrant visuals”, the trailer for DIRT 5 doesn’t disappoint. Showcased on Xbox Series X hardware, it looks phenomenal. Colours pop, real-world locations are full of life, and cars look more realistic than ever.
The trailer shows off a wealth of locations and settings, from the bustling cityscape of New York and the bright and bold streets of Rio de Janeiro, to the remote countryside of Greece and China.
There’s a huge range of cars on show too, from more traditional rally cars, complete with bold liveries, to buggies and trucks. Whatever kinds of wheels you prefer, it looks like DIRT 5 will have something to suit.
Perhaps most excitingly is the voice talent on board for DIRT 5; it boasts two of the biggest names in video game voice acting. Yep, Troy Baker and Nolan North are both offering their talents to the game, acting as your guide and mentors throughout the game’s career mode. They’re not alone; they’ll be joined by other famous voices from the worlds of gaming and racing.
DIRT 5 is set to release this October on PC, PS4, Xbox One, PS5 and Xbox Series X. A Stadia version will launch in early 2021. Give the trailer a watch below, and we’ll have more about the game closer to launch.
