DiRT 5 Patch 5.00 fixes trophies and adds content, haptics, and generational cross-save

By Kes Eylers-Stephenson,
Rally-sim DiRT 5 is releasing Patch 5.00 which will include extra content, DualSense support, trophy fixes, and generational cross-save. Some of these features, particularly cross-save, have been asked for frequently by the community.

The Patch 5.00 notes can be found on the DiRT website, but we have them ready to read down below. The major addition here is the abundance of extra content, from tracks to cars. The inclusion of cross-gen saving for PlayStation systems means you can import your PS4 save file to your PS5 if you have been lucky enough to get your hands on the next-gen beast. Maybe give this a second before doing it though, as Wreckfest's importing system broke the platinum trophy. The inclusion of additional haptic feedback and adaptive trigger support will always be welcome along with control over rumble intensity. The Spare Some Change for Gas? trophy will now actually pop after 1000 miles.

The patch goes live today, July 20th, so make sure you get it downloaded before you make any more progress! Here are the full notes:

Hey, I'm Kes! I'm a Staff Writer, and I've been here since 2021. What do I like? The Outer Wilds is top notch. The Witcher 3 blew my mind over the course of five years completing it. I want Burnout back — I really miss crunching mechanical wonders into walls to the sound of Guns N' Roses. Cool, now we are acquainted, I'll see you around.
