“Dirt 5” is shaping up to be an exciting new entry in the off-road racing series. With the original announcement trailer, a wide array of cars tracks and features were shown off. The newest feature, revealed during the Gamescom streaming conference, is the ability to create your own stadium race courses.
The mode is called playgrounds, and gives you a big arena to devise your own course. While the overall size may seem a bit small in comparison to other racing games route creators, such as those in “Forza Horizon,” the difference here is the wide array of obstacles and game mechanics you can drop in. The trailer shows loops, jumps, bumps, half pipes and all kinds of stuff to smash through, from hay bales to bowling pins. There are plenty of objects for decorating your course, too.
