The game is set for release on November 6 for PC, PS4 and Xbox One,, November 10 for the Xbox Series X and S, and November 12 for the PS5. Players who purchase the game on current-gen consoles will be upgraded to the next-gen version for free, if and when they choose to make the switch.
The new trailer showcases Dirt 5 running on an Xbox Series X and all the improvements the next-gen edition of the game will bring. For the first time in franchise history, the high-octane racing game will be capable of running at 120 frames per second. It will also feature detailed graphical fidelity, tight controls and quick response times.

In a press release, Dirt 5’s development director, Robert Kart, spoke about the transition to next-gen consoles: “It’s hard to believe that in less than a month, Dirt 5 will make its mark on the next generation of consoles. The studio has done an incredible job, and we can’t wait for players to join us in the lobbies.”
Dirt 5 is expected to make some drastic changes to the series’ formula, offering a full narrative-driven story mode for players to undertake. The campaign features voice work from industry legends such as Troy Baker (Joel in The Last Of Us series) and Nolan North (Nathan Drake in the Uncharted series). Players will play the rival driver to North’s character, while Baker will voice the player’s mentor.
