    DIRT 5 is here - join our Discord to chat!

    Revealing DIRT 5 – First Next-Gen Codemasters Game, Launching from October 2020 By Chris Groves · On May 7, 2020 DIRT 5. It’s time to Let Loose. As revealed during Microsoft’s Inside Xbox show, Codemasters is delighted to announce DIRT 5, launching from October 2020 on Xbox Series X, PlayStation® 5, Windows PC (via Steam) and the current generation of Xbox and PlayStation consoles. A Google Stadia version will be released in early 2021. Codemasters Forums users: To chat with the Codies team and fellow fans about DIRT 5, head over to the game's official Discord server! discord.gg/BYGnqQB At launch, we will have a dedicated Support section for DIRT 5 on the Forums, to help players with any technical issues or topics 🙂 -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Whilst respecting the heritage and retaining the DNA of the franchise, DIRT 5 writes a new chapter in the legacy of DIRT – bolder and braver than ever before. Check out the official announce trailer, soundtracked by the superb ‘Time to Dance (Sebastian Remix)’ by The Shoes: DIRT 5 is more than relentless rallying, more than suspension-shaking jumps, more than hairpins and handbrakes. Join an energised world of off-road racing, and be part of a vibe that delivers big on epic action, pure expression, and unbridled style. Now, time for some juicy info… Bursting with modes, ways to play, and concepts never before seen in the series, DIRT 5 is an overload of amplified entertainment. Dive into the ambitious Career mode, which lets you choose your path to glory as you progress through an immersive journey. The narrative features a voice cast led by the legendary Troy Baker and Nolan North, partnered by the car culture heroes at Donut Media and more famous names from the automotive world. Make your unique mark and overcome all obstacles to ensure nobody ever forgets your name. Play together in Career and offline modes with split-screen for up to four players, making DIRT 5 the ultimate playground for you to throw down, trade paint and get really sideways with your friends, either online or on the couch. Looking for a fresh way to be playful on four wheels? Take the fun to a global scene, with traditional race events and innovative modes that’ll have you hooning for miles and grinning from ear to ear. But that’s far from all it when it comes to ways to play DIRT 5. Look out for the reveal of a new mode later this year – something you have never seen before from the DIRT franchise. Travel the world to conquer over 70 routes from locations spanning the entire globe, that turn real landmarks into racetracks – from the frozen East River in New York, to the marble mines of Italy, to the Favelas of Brazil. Defy dynamic weather conditions, intimidating terrain and unpredictable elements in eight different race types, covering gravel, snow, mud, ice and more surfaces in between. Your ride of choice? Choose from a ferocious car roster that includes machines purpose-built for off-road dominance – and a few you’ll be less used to seeing off the beaten track. Our first trailer gives you a first glimpse at what you’ll take the wheel of, from extreme machines like the Ariel Nomad, to racing icons like the Lancia Stratos and modern off-road masters like the Citroen C3 R5. Oh, and each car will be visually customisable through DIRT 5’s nuanced livery editor, with more editing options than any previous DIRT game. Once you’re done designing, snap your greatest moments with a dedicated Photo Mode, capturing ever jump, scrape and slide. It’s all set in that amplified off-road world, dripping in style and giving license for you to express yourself, on and off the track. With a backdrop of infectious atmosphere and an unforgettable soundtrack, everything you do in DIRT 5 adds to the vibe. So, what will you bring to the table? Launching on the new generation of consoles, as well as current-gen, DIRT 5 makes use of the groundbreaking technology coming to console gaming. With Xbox Series X, experience heightened graphical fidelity in a hyperreal world, optimised performance no matter the mode, and unparalleled load-times for constant action. With Xbox Smart Delivery, if you purchase the Xbox One version of DIRT 5, you’ll receive the best version of it to your Xbox One, as usual. Then, if you decide to jump into the next generation with Xbox Series X, you will automatically receive the Xbox Series X optimized version of at no additional cost. Be the focus. Be recognised. Be the one to take iconic environments, dangerous terrain and incredible vehicles, and turn them into highlight-reel moments. That’s what DIRT 5 is all about. Time to make it what you’re all about, too. Join the conversation and engage with the DIRT 5 team right now through the game’s official Discord server. Of course, follow the DiRT channels on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook and YouTube, where we’ll be showing you so much more of the game in the coming weeks and months – from feature deep dives, to art concepts, to peeling back the curtain on DIRT 5’s creation.
  2. Update: More progress has been made this evening regarding connection issues and most players are experiencing no issues. We'll keep working hard to further reduce connectivity errors for everyone. Thank you again for your patience on this 👍
  3. Hey all, wanted to drop something here to keep you updated on the current server/connection issues with DiRT Rally 2.0 👇 The news is similar to last night: we're continuing to see steady improvement and more players connecting in the game, but there's still work to be done. We've got multiple departments working through another evening to keep improving the situation. For anyone still unable to connect in the game, we apologise. It sucks. We'll keep pushing this forward and working hard to get more players smoothly into all areas of the game. Keep giving us your feedback as it's invaluable for us as we assess the impact of changes we make. Thank you 🙂
  4. Thank you for your patience on the connectivity issues we're seeing right now. Latest update for you: - Progress is being made and we're seeing the majority of players connect to servers - If your account is showing as having 0 Credits, these are not lost and will appear when you next connect to the server - We're still working hard and will keep you updated on DiRT channels Thanks again 🙂
  5. Confirmed: players will not lose Credits due to the current situation. If your Credits show as 0, it's a temporary error caused by the connection. Your Credits return when connected 🙂
  6. Appreciate the feedback, all, and apologies for the inconvenience. We have teams working all evening on a solution and will keep at it. We're seeing progress. Thanks again 👍
  7. Lots of work going on from multiple departments. Numbers-wise we're still seeing improvements and stabilisation but there's clearly more to be done. On the topic of Credits - anecdotally we're seeing that once you can re-connect fully, your Credits return. On my side my Credits were breifly at zero, but once I was briefly able to connect, that hard-earned moolah was back. Chasing confirmation that this is the same for all players
  8. Hi all, Chris here from the Community Team 🙂 Quick update to say that we're seeing some possible progress with the current situation. Active users is steadily rising. If anyone here does try to jump in, please let us know how you get on here, so we have more info to work on. Thank you 🙂
  9. Before posting - Please take a little look and see if there is already a recent thread about your issue or question. If there is, please add your comments there. If there isn’t a recent thread, then please make a new one. Duplicate threads may be closed or merged with any main threads. We may also update thread titles if needed. Please keep in mind two key points when submitting feedback/bugs/reports: - Any correct information you can provide is useful and welcomed. If something cannot be reproduced internally, it cannot be fixed, so any extra info is always welcome. - Please submit your feedback and communicate with everyone on the Forums in a polite, constructive manner. Disrespectful language or abusive behaviour is not tolerated, not acceptable, and just not necessary in any way. Let's work together to fix what you're experiencing 🙂 When making a bug report, please use the following template and with a descriptive thread title, including any pertinent information in square brackets. For Example, if it is a Multiplayer bug put [multiplayer] in the title, followed by a descriptive title. If it is a PS4 issue about audio, put [PS4][audio] followed by a descriptive title; A short description of the problem: Platform you’re on (PS4, Xbox One, PC, Stadia): Game Version (if applicable): Game Mode, including if it was Single Player or Multiplayer (Time Trial, Career, Custom Game, etc): If in Multiplayer, how many players and how many AI?: What happened in the lead up to the problem?: If you get an error message, the exact wording of the error message you're receiving: Any accessories you are using (wheel, pad, etc): If you have any videos or screenshots, please share them. If the video is long, please include a timestamp for when the issue appears: We may request more information while trying to track down bugs. If the information we request is not included in your post, we may not be able to help you further. Only one issue per thread - When there’s more than one issue in a thread it can create more work for the team, especially if we’ve already got threads about one of the issues. Please make sure that you only have one bug per thread. Any that have more than one issue may be closed with the request to create separate threads or to post in any already available. Codes appearing in the thread titles - To help the team coordinate and sort the bugs and feedback that you’re posting, we will be updating certain thread titles with codes. You don’t need to worry yourself with them, they are for the teams information only. We request that the thread owners do not remove or change the tags. Don’t worry if your thread doesn’t get a code either, we are still reading all of them.
  10. Hey all, This is just a quick message to say that we're switching things up a little in terms of the Community team's responsibilities for GRID. From now, instead of myself, @CMTGK will be your main point of contact for GRID queries, questions and feedback 🙂 This is because I'm moving onto an exciting new Codemasters project which I can't wait to reveal more on. Nothing's changing with the focus or priority of GRID; we're just moving some things around. I'll still be around and assisting with GRID where needed, and you'll certainly see me online in race lobbies! It's been a blast bringing you the news and updates on GRID, and then working with you to guide the direction of GRID post-launch. 🙂

    Around the Globe - Trophy/Achievement problem

    Check the GRID - General Assistance area 😉
  12. Hey everyone, Whilst Season 2 for GRID has only just hit the track, we’re already looking towards the future – and looking at how to keep up the pace with GRID by listening to you, the players. On top of headline-grabbing content like new cars and circuits, we’ve continuously made tweaks and additions to the game that directly address hot topics within our community. Ahead of the next Season of content will be a free update for GRID. Alongside the usual technical tweaks and optimisations, we’re adding a clutch of new features that are the result of feedback and requests for players. First up, in the next update we’ll be adding an area in GRID’s profile section, that allows each player to view their own in-game statistics and accolades. Included in this area will be the total distance you have driven in the game – something that’ll come in handy to track that infamous ‘Around The Globe’ Achievement/Trophy we devilishly included… Next up: Cleaning your car. Whilst all cars in GRID are intentionally slightly scuffed and scratched in areas, to show their battle scars and the game’s action-packed nature, we’ve heard the requests to give your garage a squeaky-clean look. So, before each race event in the vehicle select menu, you’ll have the option to clean your car, if you wish. We’ve also spoken to plenty of GRID racers about the game’s car tuning options. Whilst the feedback around the variety and accessibility of the tuning system has been great, players have asked to have this option in Multiplayer, as well as the single-player modes. From the next update, all players will now be able to adjust their car’s tuning setup, whenever they’re in Skirmish. It’s another way for all players to prove their worth against the world and adds some more depth into the Multiplayer experience. Speaking of Achievements and Trophies, we have some more good news. We’ve heard the requests from players to add more of these based around post-launch content, and are working hard to add extra Achievements/Trophies to GRID, for all platforms, when the next Season of content drops. These new achievements would be split up to cover all three of GRID’s Seasons, so you’ll have scenarios and objectives to hit based around the new cars and circuits added to the game since launch. Closer to the new Season’s drop, we’ll have full details on this addition. Each of these additions are the continuation of prioritising player feedback to further improve GRID – the driving factor behind other new features, such as Session Search the option to extend race lengths in Career mode. That’s alongside 10 cars, two circuits, and other new additions since launch. Let us know what you think of the additions! 🙂

    problem

    We wouldn't know ourselves if there are issues with graphics cards 🙂 This isn't an issue being reported by other PC players with the new patch, so we suggest ensuring all hardware and software is updated and set up correctly to play the game. Thank you 🙂
  15. Bumping this to confirm that this fix for all cars in cockpit cam will be included in the next free game update, which is just around the corner 🙂
