Va va vroom
Republished on Wednesday 29th December, 2021: We're bringing this review back from the archives following the announcement of January 2022's PS Plus lineup. The original text follows. The DIRT franchise has gone through a lot of change over the years. The second and third entries deviated from the pure rally experience, going big on...
PS Plus games ready to roll on PS5 and PS4
New year, new PlayStation Plus games. Sony is kicking off 2022 with a pretty stellar selection of software across PS5 and PS4, and the trio of titles are rolling out right now. The new PS Plus lineup is live now in Europe, and will be arriving in other major regions very shortly. As a reminder, this month...
Plus or minus?
We're of the mind that 2022 is off to a good start — at least in terms of PlayStation Plus games. But as always, we want to know what you lot think. Just to recap, subscribers get new space-faring, bug-splatting release Deep Rock Galactic alongside stylishly rough racer DiRT 5 on both PS5 and PS4. Persona 5 Strikers is the icing on...
A strong start
January 2022's PS Plus games have been officially revealed, and it's safe to say that Sony is starting the year off with a bang. As is becoming the natural order of things, this is the same lineup that was leaked one week ago. Here's what we've got: DIRT 5 (PS5, PS4) Deep Rock Galactic (PS5, PS4) Persona 5 Strikers (PS4) Ag
Taken it for a spin
In case you missed it, DIRT 5 has just received a beefy update today, bringing with it some free content for Playgrounds mode, new Trophies to earn, and new courses. For those with some cash to burn, there's also a premium DLC named the Super Size Pack, which adds a whole bunch of new career events and vehicles. However, the...
Off the road again
While we really enjoyed DIRT 5 back when PlayStation 5 launched last November, there was one box it didn't really tick. The DualSense's unique features, haptic feedback and adaptive triggers, weren't utilised to their full potential. As has been proven by the likes of WRC 9, the extra tactile feedback can make a huge difference in...
Everyone's mucking in
It seems Codemasters is dedicated to improving and adding to DIRT 5, the rough and ready cross-gen racer. It's a fun off-road racing title, even if it did launch with one or two issues, but the developer has been smoothing things out since release, as well as adding new content. The latest update is due tomorrow — 11th May...
Big game update also incoming
DIRT 5 is Codemasters' brash, colourful arcade racer, and while it's rough around the edges, it's definitely worth checking out. As with most games these days, it launched with a long roadmap of post-release plans, and a wave of new content is right around the corner. If you have the Amplified Edition of the game or...
Here are the patch notes
Update 17/12/20: This patch for DIRT 5 is now available for download on PS5 and PS4. Time to hop back into the driver's seat! Original Story: For as much as we enjoy DIRT 5, it didn't launch in the best state. It's no Cyberpunk 2077, but the off-road racer arrived with some visual issues, Trophies not unlocking, and some...
What an achievement
It's fair to say DIRT 5 hasn't had the smoothest ride on PlayStation 5. While it's a super fun arcade racing game, the new-gen version has been suffering from a number of issues. Pretty regular crashes, the occasional visual hiccup, and a handful of Trophies that won't unlock. We've been waiting for news on an upcoming patch that...
Aiming to overhaul controller feedback
We really like DIRT 5 on PlayStation 5. It brings some easy-going, arcadey thrills and spills to the launch lineup, taking advantage of that souped-up hardware. However, one aspect that needs a little attention is its implementation of haptic feedback on the DualSense controller. Currently, the force feedback...
