DIRT 5 releases this week on PlayStation 4, but many will be waiting for that souped-up PS5 version. Fortunately, Codemasters has finally seen fit to show off that particular iteration of this off-road racer. The above video gives us a look at PS5 gameplay footage, and the game certainly has an edge over the current-gen counterpart.

Technical director David Springate discusses some enhancements made to the game for PS5, and it has plenty for next-gen adopters to get excited about. Firstly, the game can run at up to 120 frames per second on displays that support it, which will be perfect for racing game fans looking for a smooth experience.

DIRT 5 is also going to take full advantage of the DualSense controller, utilising its adaptive triggers and haptic feedback to make the action more tactile. Springate says these new features make it "feel like no other racing game". He also goes on to talk about 3D audio, saying you can plug in a regular pair of headphones and have 7.1 surround sound pumped into your ears. Apparently the game's soundtrack will blare out of the in-world speakers dotted around the race courses, meaning you'll hear music move from one side, to behind you, and get quieter as you drive away, for example.

It all sounds pretty exciting, and we're certainly intrigued to see all the differences for ourselves. Are you excited for DIRT 5 on PS5? Tell us in the comments section below.
