Dirt 5 has already been delayed a handful of times, but the latest release date seems to be pretty confident. Codemasters' newest off-road racing game will launch on Xbox One, PS4, and PC on November 6, and if you shell out for the Amplified Edition you can jump in three days earlier than everyone else. However, Codemasters also announced today that Dirt 5 is also coming to the Xbox Series X and freshly announced Xbox Series S on November 10, 2020, the same day the next-gen consoles launch.
Not only that, but Dirt 5 will support Xbox Smart Delivery, meaning the next-gen consoles will also benefit from next-gen experiences, with up to 4K resolution at 60fps available, with a 120fps option as well, all at no additional cost. This means early next-gen buyers will get the best Dirt 5 experience at no additional cost, the first day they turn on their new console.
Alongside the announcemet, Dirt 5 is also getting a new gameplay trailer, so be sure the check it out for some frozen nighttime action ahead of the games launch later this year. Finally, Dirt 5 has been confirmed for PS5, with the same next-gen upgrade being available for free, but with no pricing or release date information for the Playstation 5 yet, it's not certain when that's going to happen, or if Dirt 5 will be a launch title.
The latest off-road racer.
Dirt is back again with Dirt 5, a more approachable racer than previous entries that intends to draw in old and new players alike with gorgeous graphics, addictive racing mechanics, and more. Jump in on Xbox, Playstation, and PC when the game launches in the end of 2020.
