When can you get your hands on DIRT 5?
New DIRT 5 release date
We now know that DIRT 5 will arrive on 6 November.
This has been pushed back from the originally quoted release date. Given the continued issues around COVID-19 it isn’t too much of a surprise, and gamers are happy to wait for a finished and refined game.
That will put the game out before the next-gen consoles of the Xbox Series X and PS5.
We already know that DIRT 5 will be on the next-gen consoles. Fans will have to wait until the hardware release dates are announced to know when they’ll be able to race on next-gen.
Early access & Next-Gen
Those that want to play DIRT 5 can thanks to the Amplified Edition!
Early access via the edition will be available from 3 November.
Both the Amplified and Standard Editions come with a free upgrade to next-gen when the new hardware arrives!
Along with the firm release date announcement came a trailer showing off just how much depth there will be in the career mode.
DIRT 5’s mentor Alex Janicek is voiced by the iconic Troy Baker, and who else could play the antagonist Bruno Durand other than Nolan North. They are the driving narrative behind your on-track success or failure.
That isn’t all though, the narrative of the story is also driven by Donut Media’s James Pumphrey and Nolan Sykes via podcasts. Joining them will be special guests Jamie Chadwick and YouTuber SLAPTrain.
