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.

AccessibilityAccessibility

Our Dirt Accessibility Report documents 28 accessibility features:
For the accessibility features, we have used the latest game, Dirt 5.

There are 5 difficulty settings, with the easiest called Very Easy and the hardest Very Hard. In addition to these settings there are also different presets for driver aids (which can also be adjusted individually) including auto-brake and traction control. With the highest level of assistance you can race simply by continually holding down the accelerator and steering.

You can remap all controls for gameplay, including changing button controls to joystick controls and vice versa, but there isn't an option to remap menu controls, you need access to at least one stick and several buttons.

All of the text in the game is high contrast, but is sometimes quite small.
