It’s been a tough ride, and the entire Codemasters team loved seeing your racing antics, photo mode shots, livery, and playground creations. Given that you gave us all of this, it only seems fair to give you something back, doesn’t it?

Today marks the first content drop for Dirt 5 of 2021 and we’re starting with a major game update and content pack on a grand scale. Enough of me babbling on – let’s dive into the fun things and share some tips on how to really get the most out of everything that gets in your way today …

First off: say hello to him Energy content package, replete with new items and options for multiple modes. Four new cars are coming to our versatile off-road garage, led by the incredible Porsche Taycan Turbo S – an electrifying super sports car with over 700 hp! The Taycan is accompanied by another European beast, the Alpine A110 Sports X, and they are flanked by two iconic American trucks ready for any off-road challenge: the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and the GMC Sierra Pre-Runner.

But the cars are just the beginning. The Energy Content Pack offers 25 new career events to conquer. Two new sponsorship options are key to more new content and customization options. Custom liveries, new player profile options and custom livery patterns can be discovered and presented as your progress through the new career thread.

Among the cars with new official liveries are the Ford RS200 and Peugeot 205 in the rally class of the 1980s and the Ford Escort RS Cosworth in the rally class of the 1990s. All of these classes are featured in the career and updated playlist of online multiplayer events – and of course, you can use any car class to your heart’s content in arcade and time trial events.
