DIRT 5 delivers amplified racing across 70 routes, 10 locations and 13 vehicle classes.

The Career boasts the voice talents of gaming icons, Troy Baker and Nolan North, alongside Donut Media’s James Pumphrey and Nolan Sykes, and cameos from the world of gaming and motorsport.
Dirt 5 of course, is also wrapped around an exclusive in-game advertising deal between Codemasters and ad-tech company, Bidstack for the provision of programmatic ads in native spaces that will not distract the gamer from their gameplay immersion.

Once verified by the creator, Playgrounds are available for anyone to download, and post their best scores to the global leaderboards.
“DIRT 5 is finally available, and we can’t wait to jump into the lobbies with our players,” said Robert Karp, DIRT 5 Development Director at Codemasters. “The team has done an incredible job, and there is so much variety. From Playgrounds to party modes to all-action racing, DIRT 5 gives racing fans so much of what they love and a whole lot more.”
