DIRT 5 has been around for a while now, but Codemasters continues to support, improve, and develop the amazing off-road racer.
A new patch has landed to make the game even more accessible for players as well as fix a few things that were lingering in the background.
Let's take a look at what's coming into the game.
Added wheel support
DIRT 5 is definitely a controller-friendly racer, but that doesn't mean those that have wheels need to pick up their game pad.
While already supporting the vast majority of wheels out there, additional PS4 & PS5 wheel support for the following has been added by Codemasters:
- Fanatec CSL Elite Racing Wheel - Officially licensed for PS4™
- Fanatec Podium Racing Wheel F1 - Officially licensed for PS4™
- Fanatec ClubSport Steering Wheel BMW GT2 (Add-on)
- Fanatec ClubSport Steering Wheel Formula (Add-on)
- Fanatec ClubSport Steering Wheel Porsche 918 RSR (Add-on)
- Fanatec ClubSport Steering Wheel Universal Hub (Add-on)
- Fanatec CSL Steering Wheel McLaren GT3 (Add-on)
- Fanatec CSL Steering Wheel P1 PS4 (Add-on)
- Fanatec CSR Elite Pedals (Add-on)
- Fanatec CSL Elite Pedals (Add-on)
- Fanatec ClubSport Pedals V1 (Add-on)
- Fanatec ClubSport Pedals V2 (Add-on)
- Fanatec ClubSport Pedals V3 (Add-on)
- Fanatec ClubSport Pedals V3i (Add-on)
- Fanatec ClubSport Handbrake (Add-on)
- Fanatec ClubSport Shifter (Add-on)
While not all of us are blessed with a Fanatec family of wheels, those that are can now enjoy DIRT 5 in all its glory.
Additional changes have come into the game with this patch, which is available today on Xbox, PlayStation, and PC. The update will arrive on Stadia on a later date.
Fixes for two trophies on PS4/PS5 not unlocking properly have been added. This should mean that you can now get the "I'll Show Them! I'll Show Them All!" and "Spare Some Change for Gas?" trophies should now be optainable.
There are also several general fixes and optimisations to improve game performance across all modes.
