DIRT 5 is less than two months away from its release date, but the game released new information about Playgrounds. The game’s new feature Playgrounds was on display Thursday with a new trailer released for the public to see.
What Playgrounds Will Have for DIRT 5 Gamers
Playgrounds for Dirt 5 allows players to design, create, edit, and race on their own custom tracks. These arenas can also be shared with everyone around the world. Different objects can be placed within the arena from bumps, kickers and ramps, to loops, tunnels, and rings of fire. Players can start their customization with a blank slate at Cape Town Stadium in South Africa or in the deserts of Arizona.
There are three different game modes that players can pick from within Playgrounds to start their customization. Those include:
- Gate Crasher – A high-speed checkpoint dash through strategically placed gates. While it sounds simple, after adding loops and other obstacles, the challenge increases ten-fold.
- Gymkhana – Create a high-skill, fast-thrills arena peppered with drifts, donuts, and trick objects placed with precision for the perfect challenge. Players are rewarded for speed and style.
- Smash Attack – The ultimate four-wheeled hide and seek. Strategically position smashable objects and define a target score. Players must find and collect all objects in the fastest time possible.
When players are satisfied with their arena they can make a thumbnail and save it. This can be shared globally for other players to race on and use. If players just want to race, they can go to the Discover menu and pick an arena to the games’ recommendation.
We saw early gameplay of Dirt 5 back in June. Playgrounds will be included in DIRT 5 when it is released on October 16 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. The game will also be released on the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X when it comes out during the holidays. For more information on DIRT 5, gamers can check out their website here.
