Game company Codemasters has released the free Red Bull Revolution Update for video game Dirt 5.
The newest update adds cross-platform matchmaking, ghost times, and many more. It is now available to download for all players and the items added are themed after Red Bull.
Eight Red Bull themed liveries have been created across six vehicles: the Audi S1 EKS RX quattro, MINI John Cooper Work Buggy by X-raid, Peugeot 3008 DKR Maxi, Volkswagen Race Touareg 3, and the Peugeot 208 WRX. The iconic Red Bull arch has also been added for use in DIRT 5’s Playgrounds mode which invites players to Create, Share, and Discover custom arenas.
Marking a first for the DIRT series, cross-platform matchmaking has also been added with this update. Players searching in open lobbies on Xbox, PlayStation and PC platforms will now compete simultaneously in both traditional racing and party modes.
Wet and stormy weather conditions have been made available in Playgrounds – adding an extra layer of customisation to arena creation. Plus, another community-requested feature in ghost lap times is included for Gate Crasher and Time Trial events. Ghost lap times are the ideal tool for those wanting to climb to leaderboards in the pursuit of bragging rights between friends and the rest of the DIRT 5 community.
“We’re delighted to continue evolving DIRT 5 in new and exciting ways, in particular with the addition of cross-platform matchmaking” said Robert Karp, DIRT 5 Development Director at Codemasters. “We’ve often wondered which platform’s players are the quickest head-to-head – now we’ll finally have that answer!”
DIRT 5 is available now across Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Google Stadia, and PC via Steam or Windows Store. The game supports Xbox Smart Delivery and PlayStation’s free upgrade when players upgrade to an Xbox Series X/S or PlayStation 5.
