It’s a bumpy ride in Dirt 5’s all-new ‘Path Finder’ events

Buckle Up

Codemasters has released a mode-specific trailer for its wheel-spinning sequel Dirt 5. The video focuses specifically on “Path Finder”, one of the new events headed to the upcoming off-road racer.

Path Finder events will put hardened drivers behind the wheel of a tough “rock bouncer” ATV, before testing their mettle against aggressive uphill tracks, filled with potholes, bumps, and rough, violent terrain. Good thing you’ve got that roll cage fitted. You’re gonna need it.

You can check out all the bum-numbing action in the work-in-progress video below.


In Path Finder, speed will be accompanied by strategy, as drivers pick their way through the brutal, unmarked roads in an effort to reach the track’s summit in as quick a time as possible. Speed, balance, suspension, inertia will all play a huge part in the Path Finder challenges.

Dirt 5 launches on PS4, PC, and Xbox One October 9. Next-gen editions will follow later in 2020.
