DiRT 5‘s Playgrounds mode was detailed earlier in the day by Codemasters.
“Playgrounds allows players to design, create, edit and race on custom arenas and instantly share with the world. Using a vast suite of objects from bumps, kickers and ramps, to loops, tunnels and rings of fire, players can get creative with endless possibilities,” Codemasters said in a press release.
Three distinct modes exist within Playgrounds, as follows:
- Gate Crasher: A high-speed checkpoint dash through strategically placed gates. While it sounds simple, after adding loops and other obstacles, the challenge increases ten-fold.
- Gymkhana: Create a high-skill, fast-thrills arena peppered with drifts, donuts, and trick objects placed with precision for the perfect challenge. Players are rewarded for speed and style.
- Smash Attack: The ultimate four-wheeled hide and seek. Strategically position smashable objects and define a target score. Players must find and collect all objects in the fastest time possible.
“Playgrounds is something we’ve wanted to share for some time. It’s unique for the DIRT franchise and, with endless possibilities, we can’t wait for our players to get creative,” said Robert Karp, DIRT 5 Development Director at Codemasters.
