Codemasters released today with the Red Bull Revolution Update which available to download now as a free update for all players. Alongside several Red Bull-themed items, Codemasters added some community-requested features such as cross-platform matchmaking and ghost lap times.
This free patch brings eight Red Bull themed liveries across six vehicles: the Audi S1 EKS RX quattro, MINI John Cooper Work Buggy by X-raid, Peugeot 3008 DKR Maxi, Volkswagen Race Touareg 3, and the Peugeot 208 WRX. Moreover, this update adds the iconic Red Bull arch in DIRT 5’s Playgrounds mode.
Additionally, Codemasters has enabled cross-platform between PC and consoles. Players searching in open lobbies on Xbox, PlayStation and PC platforms will now compete simultaneously in both traditional racing and party modes.
Furthermore, you can now find wet and stormy weather conditions in Playgrounds. According to the Codies, these new conditions will add an extra layer of customisation to arena creation. You can also find ghost lap times for the Gate Crasher and Time Trial events. Ghost lap times are the ideal tool for those wanting to climb to leaderboards in the pursuit of bragging rights between friends and the rest of the DIRT 5 community.
Robert Karp, DIRT 5 Development Director at Codemasters, said:
“We’re delighted to continue evolving DIRT 5 in new and exciting ways, in particular with the addition of cross-platform matchmaking. We’ve often wondered which platform’s players are the quickest head-to-head – now we’ll finally have that answer!”
