The DIRT is back now. On October 16, the Codemasters off-road racing game series celebrates its return. Especially in comparison to the strong DiRT Rally 2.0 simulation, DIRT 5 is clearly going in the direction of enjoyable-racing, as the new playground equipment mode shows. 

The DiRT series used to have a bit of difficulty developing an identity, with DiRT Rally becoming a simple battle sim and DiRT 4 attempting to manage more accepting racing and a host of other things on the side. Next came DiRT Rally 2.0, again based on providing a practical rallying environment.

And now it seems that Codemasters may have settled into some kind of pattern and DiRT 5 has been on the extreme side of the DiRT 2.0 scale. Both colours are bright, the sound is loud as well as the concentrate is on jumps, bumps and wheel-to-wheel races. DiRT Rally should continue to tough play, whereas DiRT games could be targeted at even more casual viewers about a month before the launch, Codemasters provided a preview of their newest DiRT 5 mode: Playgrounds, a location where players can make their own activities and connect them with both the community.

Only at that moment, there seem to be three types of events that players can do. Gate Crasher is all about driving through checkpoints, so it's great for a straight race, even though they can make a fun, open map with challenges and let players try to find out the quickest route through any of the gates. Block Smasher is pretty much what it sounds like — break blocks, score points, win. Reach a warning block and the participants have to spend the rest of their lives with the belief that they're a bad driver. Finally, Gymkhana is back and it's all about getting goals by doing things like doughnuts. 

who had been trying to fiddle with Playgrounds for ages and understood what they were doing. Each track players create is situated within an arena, so the Codemasters level was a tutorial course about how to use verticality, Jumps and serpentine setups to generate flowing, complicated paths in which players could crash their car constantly before they quit rabies.

Trying to piece everything together is simply a matter of grabbing things in place, even though people could choose to disable snapping for a thicker level of control unless people prefer. Whether fans ever have played the Tony Hawk games or the Skate series, they feel immediately comfortable that gamers can cobble something together in 10 or 15 minutes, if they want.

As per Codemasters, the list of objects to play with this is pretty similar to what the player is looking, to begin with. There's many common dirt and roofs platforms, banked corners and clear stairs, along with stuff like wheel-barriers, so people can enthuse coral players who would like to learn about the idea of brakes. People often get a couple of corkscrews, pre-made hairpin bends and some Gymkhana setups, too. Or they could get somewhat more exciting by popping a ring of fire or a few buses and trains to jump over.

Whenever fans want flowing curves, they've got to grab something more like a little concrete pillar and patiently pop that over and over again. And no matter what they've done, the standards they build never tried to sound professional or even logical. Maybe some simple options to play around with colours could enable players to put this all together.

Overall, Playgrounds is a fun recent addition, and fans are looking forward to seeing what mayhem the group will produce in DiRT 5. There are questions about the durability of the style, though – would this have enough depth in its easy skills to support people who are coming back in the same way as other editors do? Will the fans see any artistic genius, or would the editor not approve it? If DiRT 5 is similar to that, then Codemasters will also have a big hit on their hands. The secret to this future success will continue to help Playgrounds with new technologies and styles so that the group can stretch its innovative muscles. With this same strong support available, Playgrounds might end up becoming the pulse of DiRT 5.
