We’re about a month away from the release of DiRT 5 on current and next gen consoles like the Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5. As usual, the closer we get to launch the more Codemasters will let us see!
Today a brand new gameplay trailer dropped featuring the return of arena events from previous DiRT games. Specifically the Cape Town Stadium is the location of the race in this newest gameplay clip.
Arena events will be playable locally and in online-multiplayer with up to 12 cars total.
The Cape Town Stadium will be available in just about every gameplay mode; including the new Playgrounds mode that allows players to create their own courses and share them online.

Taking inspiration from arena-based action in previous DIRT games, this stadium complex is the perfect setting for some close-quarters racing with jumps, crossovers and a roaring crowd. Take the action through the stadium, the parking lot, and the outer area for a thrilling route, available in Career, Arcade and online play with up to 12 cars on track.
“Cape Town Stadium in South Africa is ideal for both our Playgrounds custom arena creator mode, and atmospheric, technical and flat-out fun races. Going from the perimeter through the parking lot and into the stadium is an exhilarating experience,” said Robert Karp, Development Director, DIRT 5.
DIRT 5 will release on November 6, 2020 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, followed by PlayStation 5 later this year. DIRT 5 will be a launch title on Xbox Series S/X, coming November 10, 2020. A Google Stadia version will release in early 2021. The game supports both Xbox Smart Delivery and PlayStation’s free upgrade when players switch to an Xbox Series X or PlayStation 5.
