The updates name comes from the Red Bull content contained within. This mainly includes new liveries for multiple vehicles, which we're excited to give a go. This update is available RIGHT NOW for all players, regardless of which edition you bought.


Other additions are a new Red Bull arch for us in Playgrounds mode, more weather options in arena creator mode, and also ghost lap times.


Undoubtedly the biggest change coming to the title with this update is the addition of cross-play, which will open up the multiplayer experience.

This feature will be available for Xbox, PlayStation, and PC (Windows and Steam players), with the feature coming later to Google Stadia players.

This means that multiplayer lobbies can now include players across multiple platforms, and should lead to busier online races, and more exciting events!

Red Bull content and Playgrounds


The reason that update is named Red Bull Revolution is due to DIRT 5 and the energy company teaming up to bring us this content.
