DiRT 5 | New 'Stampede' Arizona Track Gameplay Footage

Codemasters have released a first look at the Arizona Stampede track that will be available as part of the launch content for the upcoming rally racer.
  • DiRT 5 releases October 9th.
  • First footage of the new venue and gameplay mode.

Having been announced by Codemasters as the successor to the popular arcade spin off DiRT franchise, DiRT 5 will be racing onto current generation consoles and PC early October, with Xbox Series X, PS5 and Google Stadia versions set to be deployed towards the end of the year - early 2021.

We've already heard quite a bit about the new title, and now its time to take a look at Stampede - using the Jimco Unlimited Truck around a new Arizona based track that Codemasters promise offers "Hard, unforgiving natural landscapes, built for rough-and-ready machines with suspension and shock absorbers galore, Stampede circuits are tough, to say the least. Up to 12 cars will be able to compete in these extreme events.

Also of interest in the new video is Codemasters new dynamic weather system, with the footage showing off an incoming lightening storm - visual goodies galore in this one it seems.

DiRT 5 will be available October 2020 on the Xbox and PlayStation family of consoles and PC, with Google Stadia to follow.

Keep your eye out in the DiRT 5 sub forum here at RD - a perfect place to discuss the game.

Graphics look a bit weird, but otherwise I definitely have 60 set aside for this game. Between this and DR2 Codies is really knocking it out of the park.

Will the dirt titles be using the madness engine?
I personally don't really care for the Dirt series but I'd truely be interested and would like to see Dirt rally 3.0 on that engine to take advantage of the loose surface physics and dynamic weather system.

Looks like Gravel to me. I actually enjoyed playing Gravel on train while traveling.

Would not buy anything from CM at full price tho.

Looks like they got rid of the horrific understeer from Dirt 4, and Dirt 2 and 3 were so much fun, I think I might be getting this.

Rename it to ''Motorstorm: Dirt'' or so. But I guess they using 'Dirt' because the name sells. The glory times of Codemasters are long go. It had a revival with Dirt Rally 1, but since then.. it plumped again.
They wished. Motorstorm 1 & 2 are miles ahead of this footage.

They keep missing what makes offroad fun. Its the suspension play + weight transfer + lack of grip.

I say this knowing the team behind dirt5 came from evo studios (the makers of motorstorm), so its not like they don't know how to do it.

Oh damn, it's not so much Dirt 5 that amuses me but Paul, your little goatee and mustache got me bugged for a few moments, I thought it was Franck Ribery with long hair ^^

I specify that I haven't drunk, not yet, except water ^^ of course it's humor :p

Not sure if I will get this. I redemeed DiRT 4 almost instantly when it came out. That last footage in bumper view almost looked like a PS2 game. Hard sell when you're aiming at the new generation of consoles.
