  1. Time to answer one of life’s true burning questions. As we sled into December, I’m sure it’s on your mind as well, to put this query to bed, once and for all. Is this, truly, the most wonderful time of the year? The festive period is great and all, but it’s up against some stiff competition. New Year is normally pretty cool. So are birthdays, all other public holidays, and the entire summer is a strong contender. This year, though, this statement is probably dead on. With the next generation of consoles in our hands, a slew of new games to play through (particularly Codies games, right?) and
  2. What are you thankful for? At this turkey-twizzling time of year, that’s a question we’ve been pondering over at Codemasters Towers. We’re thankful for hairpins and handbrakes. We’re thankful for roaring engines and rickety roll-cages. We’re very thankful for the mean full English breakfast that the canteen team can rustle up at Codies HQ. Most of all, though, we’re thankful to you, our incredible community, for getting behind the wheel of our creations and sharing the experience with others. In return, we bring you this – another Racing Line fuller than your post-Thanksgiving belly with big
  3. “It’s the most wonderful time… of the year…” No, we haven’t gone early on the festive vibes, and no, we haven’t found a time machine and travelled a thoroughly unimpressive amount of time. For all of us gamers, now probably feels like Christmas has come early, with new consoles, new games, new reasons to take shelter from the cold and lose yourself in a game or two. The best bit? Codemasters is full speed ahead through this exciting time, with fresh Esports action, major updates, and the small matter of a brand new game launching with next-gen hardware. We told you it was exciting! Let’s ge
  4. As promised, we have some juicy information on the upcoming F1® Mobile Racing Esports Finals to share with you! It’s time to fill you in on what to expect from the Finals and give you a sneak peek at some of the amazing rewards you can earn! The F1® Mobile Racing Esports Finals will be split up into two unique rounds.

  5. Hey everyone, As always, we hope you are all well and staying happy and healthy – and just about handling your excitement for what’s around the corner in the gaming world. It’s an exhilarating time right now to be a gamer, and Codies is firmly placed in the centre of it all with new releases, new content, esports action and so much more on the schedule. As you can probably guess, it remains an incredibly busy time for the whole team, who continue to smash it out of the park in less than ideal circumstances. Kudos to all of them – we’re just here to tell you what they’ve been working on! Her

  7. Music has been a huge factor in previous DIRT titles, particularly DiRT 2 and DiRT 3 – games that we’ve specifically marked as inspirations for this latest entry in the series. Even when we revealed DIRT 5 to the world back in early-May, one of the most asked questions we received has been around the soundtrack. With all that in mind, we knew that music had to be a big focus for DIRT 5 – and it’s time to reveal all! The DIRT 5 soundtrack brings you over 40 of the best and brightest sounds from multiple genres, from artists around the globe, making it a key part of DIRT 5’s overall style and v
