They further promise faster loading times and confirm that the PS5 edition of the game will be compatible with DualSense haptic feedback and adaptive triggers.
The game’s official website further outlines what can be expected from the next-gen version on Xbox Series X. DIRT 5 has been optimized for Microsoft’s next-gen console to produce greater graphical fidelity, and will be supported by Xbox’s smart delivery.
DIRT 5, as mentioned previously, will not feature a cross-save function, meaning that players will not be able to transfer their data from one console to the other.
On the subject of cross-save, Sony’s Hideaki Nishino cited that the decision to incorporate the feature would be a “developer decision”. In a recent PlayStation.Blog post, he said: “The ability to transfer game saves between a PS4 version and a PS5 version of the same game is a developer decision and will vary title by title for cross-generational games,”
Dirt 5 will release on Xbox One and PS4 November 6. It will then release on Xbox Series X/S November 10, and PS5 November 12.
