Update (15/7/20): Codemasters has officially released the above DIRT 5 trailer after it leaked earlier this month. To recap, the latest video goes over returning game modes, such as Gymkhana, and also confirms a free upgrade to the PS5 version if you buy a PS4 copy. You can read up on it over on the PlayStation Blog.

Original Story: DIRT 5 is the latest off-road racer from Codemasters, and it's taking the series back to its more fun-loving, arcade-style roots. The game is coming to both PlayStation 5 and PS4, with the latter releasing on 9th October. If you want that next-gen version, you'll have to wait a little longer -- but it seems early adopters will be rewarded.

A new trailer for the game leaked online earlier today, and in the video's description, it's confirmed that DIRT 5 will have a PS5 upgrade option. If you buy the game on PS4, you can upgrade to the PS5 version for free.

The trailer itself offers an overview of the game's many event types, and these include a handful of returning modes from the older DIRT titles. Stampede, Sprint, and Path Finder are highlighted, but there's also mention of Ultra Cross, Time Trial, Land Rush, Rally Raid, and Ice Breaker. Lastly, it's revealed that Gymkhana will be making its return to the series.
