OverviewOverview

Dirt 5 is the latest game in a series of the extreme sports racing game. Like Forza Horizon or the older MotorStorm games, the series focuses on exuberance and party atmosphere rather than just realism. It's from the team behind the more simulation focused Dirt Rally but with more fantastic fun and extreme scenarios rather than super-realism of that series.
