    This is one disconcertingly bizarre game to look at.

    No colours make any real sense in relation to any other colours

    The lighting colour of the road makes no sense against the sky, nor against the colours on all the hoardings. It's like it's all been put through a randomising filter.

    And its got some sort of post-apocalyptic bubble-gum aesthetic going on.

    Anyway, gg, moar primary colours and 'splosions Codiez

    I'm willing to bet it's a PBR pipeline with just a lot of saturation. Desaturate it and it'll look more "normal." It's subtle though. I honestly have no idea how you think the lighting color of the road doesn't match the sky. It matches it perfectly.

    That being said, if there was a true Look to Apex option I'd probably use Cockpit view. I've tried something similar in F1 2020 and it's great, and I think the Project CARS games have it natively.

    I get why it exists, but I hate it. Makes it hard to really know where the car is pointed.

    More gameplay 🙂 

    Chris is taking the lead on all these (I am heavily focused on F1 2020 right now) so it's always a nice surprise when I see what's coming out of this game 🙂 

    The track looks more exciting than Dirt 4, but I don't know how much of a stampede it is with only one vehicle.

    New gameplay video for Dirt 5 

    This mode looks cool,  but will be time trial only or there will be many cars on tracks? 

    Seems odd to me that we're getting that as a mode and not truck racing.

    I see a lot of things that can be used for DR3, but that would all depend on the licensing though if we for example talk about a livery editor.

    Not really fully up-to-date, but is there not a "Open Area" as a DirtFish or Battersea? 

    You'd think the livery editor would be easier. They could just have bare cars with no sponsors and skip that part of licensing entirely.

    I'm also curious, I don't remember anything specific being announced for it, but the trailer showed Gymkhana is back, so I would think so. Hopefully it's more than just the one or two playgrounds, or they let you do Halo style forge mode on it. It'd be cool to set up your own runs.

    She's just curious about @JZStudios being nostalgic.


    Will she return though?

    Oh, I wasn't being nostalgic. The first time I watched it was a week ago. It was just funny that after shooting him he just throws the gun in his face.

    For slightly more context, there's a channel here that shows some cheesy movies with a "presenter" for some added humor.

    This is unrelated to anything, it was just the ending of a cheesy movie that was on the other night I thought was funny.


    @PJTierney For context, it's called Billy the Kid Vs Dracula. After shooting him 12 times, which does literally nothing, Billy the kid just chucks his gun at his face and that knocks him out. It was fantastic. Not even Doctor Who is at that level.

    I dont think its the same , Drive Club has only open road tracks of variuos countries of the world and no circuits , it has completely different theme/feeling as game , i would love a sequel  Drive Club with other name to come some time later..

    It's totally different because it only had road courses? That's not a massive difference. Grid 1 and 2 and maybe Autosport had open road courses. It wouldn't be anything new to Grid. Otherwise Grid is primarily a road/street car semi arcade racing game. I'd say it's pretty similar to a road/street car semi arcade road course racing game. I didn't really play DriveClub so I can't exactly comment on the theme/feeling, but I have a sneaking suspicion it's not far off.

    I neved got why this team did not make the spiritual successor of very popular Drive Club which was PS4 exclusive , i am sure many of the rest platforms would like to play such a great game including me (PC user)..

    Seems like it would be pretty close to Grid, which itself got a reboot. And now they have SMS too.

    Ok, I haven’t played OnRush, but I really got the Driveclub feeling when I went through those videos, so I think there must be some heritage there. 😎

    Same studio. There's some engine build footage for Onrush that's actually really cool, like vegetation that grows and dies. No idea if that was actually in game, but it was cool.


    Check out 18:24. The flowers dynamically "grow" and die, while the trees change colors and eventually leaves fall. As seasons change the track can start to snow and it can build up over the race. It's unlikely, but it would be really cool if Dirt 5 had that feature. I said it when I first saw it, but I've been wanting a game that can dynamically change seasons for a long time.

    So Dirt5 is using the same engine as Driveclub? Well, that’s good news, because Driveclub is a very good racing game.

    No, it's made by the guys who made Driveclub, using a new engine they made. I think... they did make the engine for Driveclub, and I don't know why Sony would have the rights to the engine and I'm pretty sure CM bought Evo Studios rather than just hiring the employees. Pretty sure it was said during the release of Onrush it was a new engine.

    My concerns:

    Handling/driving looks too much on rails , the car does not slide or drift in corners .. Dont get me wrong i like arcade games as long as they have proper physics for example: Dirt 2 , Dirt 3 , Grid 1 , Grid Autosport ect  that with all assists off go closet to simcades .. To me Dirt 5 looks like completely arcade like the old Sega Rally games or the most recent Gravel by Milestone.. I hope with all assist off it feels less arcade..

     Chase view! Reading some comments of various videos  i found on utube the most common complaint about third person camera angles... When the car turns floats left and right , camera is not locked in the back of car like in Dirt Rally 2.0 for example.. It should be option to adjust this or the devs to fix it before the release date. PJTierney You should pass this to the team , just watch on utube comments how many people complaing about this

    No good collision and damage system! Also it looks that there is not car's deformation but this might due to early gameplay footage

    Did you actually watch the footage? There's lots of sliding, and damage is definitely a thing, though not on the same scale as D2. I don't care about chase cam because that's for arcade players.

    Nice preview from VVV: 4 Tracks and some wheel gameplay.


    Wow the YT compression kills it here. Had to bump up the res.

    5:07 to 5:14 shows some great carbon fiber material/shader on the dash, that's really nice. Most games just have a simple flat texture or maybe anisotropy and it just doesn't look real. The new engine overall looks really good, seems like the Evo guys should've done this instead of Onrush. Hope they stick with this for DR.

    It also seems like there's a pretty decent variety in vehicle classes, I just hope it doesn't end up like D4 where there's only 1 buggy, 1 2wd truck and 1 4wd truck.

    Yeah it isn't really new, but I don't see that as a bad thing. Yes other games have tried it and weren't able to fully deliver on it, but we have seen CM deliver on that kind of Dirt game before - D2 and D3 were fantastic in that regard (imo). So if D5 can capture the core game energy of D2 and D3, bring in some beautiful 2020 eye candy, and let their team just go BIG and a bit over the top with some flare to it all, I'm all in.

    I love Dirt Rally 2.0 and the intensity/excitement of it all, but I also have been wanting something I can throw on later in the evening just to kick back more casually while doing epic things with my buddies over. This game is definitely not going to be for everyone, and if you're looking for the next DR3 you're better of just booting up 2.0 and sharpening your skills there. But for those who are looking form something reminiscent of those late Friday nights with all of your friends in a voice chat racing around getting into wild shenanigans, I think this is going to deliver exactly what we are looking for.

    Mmm, I don't know. People were pretty upset that Ken Block even existed in either game. I enjoyed it, but having Mr. The Block say "Welcome to Dirt 2" is a lot more lowkey than Donut media, Slaptrain, and a full "story." I did like the first Horizon, where they kind of hyped up each "boss" before you raced them and they had an amount of personality. It was relatively minor and all done over "radio."

    And I'm all for the "arcade" style, I just started playing D2 and getting close to finishing it, it's great fun, and so is D3. All I'm saying is I hope the "story" isn't too... over the top hipster d bag style, but given Donut Media and Slaptrains involvement... That's not exceptionally likely. The hipster d bag cliche has been far too prevalent in racing games for something like a decade now and it's real tiring.
