The Uproar Content Pack’s line-up of cars restores four memorable fictional vehicles from DiRT: Showdown™, with the Zenden Cup, Duke Coupe, Jackson Adventurer and Jackson Eulogy adding unique style and flair to an already-eclectic car roster. The new ‘Uproar’ Career thread hosts 25 race scenarios, all featuring night-time racing and taking players across the globe for a fresh challenge on extreme racing routes. Two new Career sponsors are also added, Puma and OffRoad Xtreme, with liveries and other rewards unlocked by racing for these brands.
Update 4.00 is also available for all DIRT 5 players today, including the After Dark Playgrounds items: over 20 new objects to create custom racing arenas with, all featuring a bold and bright colour scheme to light up your creations. Private lobbies are added in this update, allowing players to race online with friends in custom-made events.
Additional Achievements/Trophies have been added on all platforms, linked to progress through the two latest Career chapters. By popular demand, four more classic liveries are also added, including iconic designs for the SUBARU Impreza S4 Rally, and MITSUBISHI LANCER EVOLUTION VI.
“We’re excited to expand the ways that players can experience DIRT 5 in this latest content update” said Robert Karp, DIRT 5 Development Director at Codemasters. “The new cars, Career events and Playgrounds have a unique style to them which we think our community will love. Private lobbies and Trophies/Achievements are also big additions, and we’ll continue to add features that our players have requested throughout 2021.”
