DIRT 5 career mode details
Voice actors, locations, and multiplayer details
Codemasters have announced some of the career mode details in DIRT 5. The complete details can be found on the blog post.
The player is dropped into an off-road racing series, going continent to continent, in all manner of events. You catch the eye of Alex Janièek – better known as AJ, voiced by Troy Baker. AJ quickly takes you under his wing, showing you what it takes to rise to the top of the sport he has dominated for years. You face off against rival Bruno Durand – the calculated veteran, voiced by Nolan North. A champion in other off-road disciplines, Bruno’s talent and star power mean a clash with AJ is inevitable.
The Career is split into five chapters to cover the key moments in the narrative. Each chapter offers multiple paths for the player to take, meaning you can choose which events you want to participate in through the chapter. If you want, you can still race in everything there is to offer, which is over 130 events across nine different race types, featuring every location in DIRT 5.
20 real-world brands are available to sponsor you in Career mode, including the likes of Monster Energy, Sparco, Michelin, Fatlace and, yours truly, Codemasters. Each sponsor will have unique rewards when you sign with them, including an exclusive livery of that brand, stickers to use in the livery editor, and a currency signing bonus.
For any of the Career events that feature multiple cars on track, each additional player takes the spot of an AI driver. They’re not just there to cheer you on, either; the highest finishing position of any player is the one that’s counted in Career, meaning you could earn more Stamps, more sponsor bonuses and more currency by teaming up. Whilst those rewards earned only count for the host player, each additional player will receive XP and currency rewards for their own accounts.
DIRT 5 will be available on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. It will also launch later on Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5.
