We have to say, DIRT 5 is looking pretty darn good. Taking the series back to its more arcadey roots, this cross-gen entry could be one of PlayStation 5's first great racing games. It's looking like a lot of fun in this new gameplay clip, which shows off a time trial event on a Stampede track.

The video shows how you'll be able to barrel through muddy, rain-soaked courses with big power slides while a thunderstorm booms in the background. And you just know it's going to handle well -- this is Codemasters, after all.

The PS4 version of DIRT 5 releases on 9th October, and owners will be able to upgrade to the next-gen edition for free. Are you excited to get behind the wheel of this one? Put your foot down in the comments section below.
