Earlier in 2020, Codemasters revealed that DiRT 5 would be one of the first Xbox Series X enhanced titles, unlocking the full power of the console with a 120hz high frame rate mode alongside a 4K60 resolution mode. And thanks to Smart Delivery, it would also be a free, seamless upgrade from the base Xbox One available at launch of Microsoft’s next-gen console.
Racing fans were already hyped for a new DiRT game that took us away from the super-serious world of stage rallying and back into the more casual, but still exciting world of the mainline DiRT series.
Even though there isn’t exactly a huge pile of Series X|S optimized games out there right now, DiRT 5 is easily one of the early highlights. It’s slick, stable and an absurd amount of fun with one particular game mode you’ll keep coming back to time and time again.
