The time draws nearer, team – we’re moving ever closer to the launch of DIRT 5 from October, and it’s once again been a month jam packed with news, gameplay and all-round goodness. Here’s a round-up of all the key details we dropped for DIRT 5 that you need to know about…


At the beginning of July, our friends over at Donut Media revealed more about their involvement in DIRT 5, including the roles of James Pumphrey and Nolan Sykes in Career mode! Donut’s dynamic duo bring their presenting and podcasting talent to our Career, where they help guide you through the main story with episodes of their DIRT Podcast by Donut Media, introductions to different event types, and plenty more.



For new reveals and content, we kicked off the month with full details on every car class coming to DIRT 5 – from classic rally machines, to trophy trucks, to a rock bouncer, we’ve gone big on fun and variety. Got a class you’re most looking forward to?

P.S – full car roster list is coming closer to launch!



Later in July, we showed you what it’s all about…

The features trailer for DIRT 5 gave you a closer look at brand new locations, event types and modes, including the return of Gymkhana! In the accompanying blog post, you can read up on our 10 brand new locations, hosting over 70 routes to race on. What kind of races will you see in those locations? The blog post has all the deets on each single-player event type in DIRT 5. Circuit, point to point, ice racing, the roughest terrain, huge jumps and elevation changes – we’ve got you covered.
