Master short circuits that set entirely on ice.

DIRT 5

Codemasters has released a new gameplay video of DIRT 5 featuring a first look at an “Ice Breaker” event.

Here is an overview of the footage, via Codemasters:

The latest DIRT 5 work-in-progress gameplay takes players to chillier climes, with a first look at the all-new Ice Breaker events in Norway.

Minimal grip, maximum fun—Ice Breaker challenges you to master short circuits that take place entirely on ice, with flowing turns and idyllic environments. Throttle control, precise drifting and momentum are key to mastering this brand-new experience for the DIRT series; allow Donut Media’s James Pumphrey and Nolan Sykes to explain more!

You’ll find Ice Breaker events in other DIRT 5 locations, including Nepal and even on the frozen East River by New York’s Roosevelt Island, with up to 12 cars competing together.

DIRT 5 is due out for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via Steam on October 9, and later in 2020 for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X. A Stadia version will follow in early 2021.
