Codemasters is readying itself for the next installment of the DIRT franchise. DIRT 5 will be its first venture onto next-gen consoles. It is also one of the games recently listed as being optimized for the Xbox Series X. One feature planned for the new console is the ability to race at 120 fps. It has also just published a “Tour Path” detailing summer-long events leading to the October release.

As part of its July events, it has begun releasing details, and screenshots, of the upcoming game. Thirteen car classes have been announced, and producer Stuart Boyd had this to say about them.

Variety is a massive part of our vision for DIRT 5, and we’ve made sure that this is represented in the game’s car classes and car roster. One moment, you’re tackling the most challenging terrain in a huge rock bouncer; the next, you’re blasting through a multi-surface circuit race with rallycross cars heavy on speed and grip; and then you’re carving a path through jungle-like routes with lively buggies and unlimited trucks.

As a child of the 70’s I was part of the many who became enthralled by the video arcade invasion of the 1980’s. Saving money from various odd jobs I purchased my first computer from a friend of my dad, a used Atari 400, around 1982. Eventually it would end up being a lifelong passion of upgrading and modifying equipment that, of course, led into a career in IT support.
