DIRT 5 gets a new release date and full PC system requirements 

Codemaster has confirmed that DIRT 5's release has been delayed for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 players, shifting the game's planned October 9th release date to October 16th.  

Gamers who purchase the title's Amplified Edition will receive access to the game on October 13th, three days earlier than players of the base game. Alongside this announcement, DIRT 5 has also received PC system requirements on Steam, allowing PC gamers to prepare their systems for DIRT 5's launch. 

With the release of Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5, Codemasters plans to release enhanced versions of DIRT 5, offering these versions as free upgrades to existing owners of the title when they upgrade their console to its next-generation counterpart. 

DIRT 5 will build on the DNA of the franchise, offering players over 70 tracks across seven global locations and conditions which range from the Frozen East River of New York to the mountainous pathways around Christ The Redeemer in Brazil. The terrain will be extreme, and driving conditions will be forever changing, which is ideal for a DIRT game. 

One addition to DIRT 5 is its integrated support for split-screen multiplay for couch-co-op, allowing up to four players to play DIRT 5 on a single system. Online, up to 12 players will be able to play together within several game modes. PC users will also be able to use a built-in photo mode to snap some incredible images of their racing exploits.
