Dirt 5 Revealed at Inside Xbox, Troy Baker and Nolan North Join the Cast
What would a next-gen console launch be without car porn and the only two voice actors in video games?
One of the games revealed at today’s Inside Xbox event was Dirt 5, the next game in developer Codemasters‘ long-running series. As expected, the next-gen cars on Xbox Series X look incredible. However, the team had a fun surprise in store after the main show ended. Before we get to that, give the announce trailer a watch below.
Those cars sure do look pretty, don’t they? The Dirt series is one of the better-regarded racers out there. This will be the fourteenth game in the Colin Mcrae Rally/Dirt series, so you have to imagine Codemasters has this thing pretty well figured out by now. Their brand of off-road racers is a must-try for anyone looking to get into the genre.
And now, the team is adding a few big names to the cast in Troy Baker and Nolan North. Dirt 4 has a great career mode and getting top-tier talent like Baker and North into the game seems like a logical step. Baker takes on the role of the mode’s mentor, while North, naturally, is your nemesis. It all sounds fun and very on-brand for two of the bigger voice actors in video games. One of the other big additions is four-player split-screen play. So, if you want to relive those late-night Mario Kart shenanigans in a more realistic racer, you’ll now be able to.
Dirt 5 launches on PC, PS4, and Xbox One in October. The PS5 and Xbox Series X versions will come when those consoles launch. It will also come to Stadia in early 2021. If you’re looking to push your next-gen console’s hardware, Dirt 5 might be a great game to give a look.
