Dirt 5 goes off-road in October, and if you're planning to get your PC in racing condition then you're going to need to check that you've got the right hardware under the hood. Codemasters has released the minimum and recommended system specs for the game, and while the minimum requirements aren't too taxing, the recommended settings require either a GTX 1070 Ti or an AMD Vega 64 GPU to get into proper racing condition.

You'll need 60GB of storage space for Dirt 5 and all of its modes, which include racing on treacherous ice in Ice Breaker, pure 900BHP drifting in Sprint, and plenty more. The full specifications, as listed on Dirt 5's Steam page, can be found below:

Originally scheduled for an October 9 release date, Dirt 5 was bumped slightly to its new release date of October 16. GameSpot went hands-on with Dirt 5 recently, and Michael Higham shared some words on how the latest chapter in the series is an even wilder ride than usual. "With Dirt 5, the series isn't all about rally racing anymore; instead, it's embracing the chaos of off-roading, and at least that's still staying true to its name," he wrote.

Dirt 5 will also arrive on PS4 and Xbox One, with PS5 and Xbox Series X versions arriving later in the year. You'll also be able to grab a free next-gen upgrade on the console of your choice whether you buy physically or digitally.
