DIRT 5 PS5 PlayStation 5

As usual, racing games will play a big role in showcasing next generation hardware. With titles like Gran Turismo Sport or DriveClub, the genre is often home to some of the best looking games around, and that will continue as we head towards PlayStation 5. Case in point: DIRT 5 from Codemasters.

It was stated a while back that the Xbox Series X version of the off-road racer would be able to run at an ultra-smooth 120 frames per second. It's an impressive figure, considering the majority of console games still don't offer 60 fps. It's now been confirmed that the PS5 version will also be capable of running at this enhanced frame rate.

Speaking as part of a big PS5 feature in Official PlayStation Magazine, DIRT 5's development director Rob Karp reveals the stat: "The power of the PS5 also means that we will have an option for 120fps, which is very exciting for the racers who know that every frame counts," he says.

That it will be an option perhaps suggests we'll be able to choose between resolution or performance. This is becoming more commonplace these days; would you prefer more detail onscreen or a smoother experience? For the PS5 version of DIRT 5, we could see the game offering a 120 fps mode with reduced resolution or a 60 fps mode at full 4K.

We'll have to wait and see what the final game is like, of course, but do you like the sound of that? Are you fussed about enhanced frame rates on PS5? Race down to the comments section below.
