Dirt 5 has rolled out its first-ever major DLC pack that adds fresh experiences to the game. There’s the Energy Content Pack, for example, which offers new vehicles with the Junkyard Playgrounds bringing in new items. Arriving with the DLC is a new update that adds more new and free content to all players.

Energy Content Pack

The new pack expands the choices available for players with these four new cars:

  • Porsche Taycan Turbo S
  • Alpine A110 Sports X
  • Chevrolet Silverado 1500
  • GMC Sierra Pre-Runner

All four new cars are playable in all game modes including the Career mode. For the Career mode, a total of 25 new events and four new entries are introduced. New scenarios are offered for many destinations like New York, Brazil, and Nepal. That’s not all as Career mode also introduces two new exclusive sponsors Xite and Mad-Croc.

The Energy Content Pack is free for those who have the Amplified Edition or Year One Upgrade. It can also be bought separately for $12.49. Get the Energy Content Pack here.

Junkyard Playgrounds

Dirt 5 has a mode known as Playgrounds where players get to create racing arenas and then share them with others. The latest update introduces more than 20 new items for players to use. These include crushed cars, scrap metal, and tire stacks. There are even the bulldozers, cranes, and a scrap-built dinosaur sculpture.

Patch 3.00

Besides the new content pack and update to Playgrounds, a patch has been released to give extra content. The first highlight is the level cap now increased to 120.

The second is the new liveries released for three of the game’s most recognizable vehicles: Ford RS200, Ford Escort ES Cosworth, and the Peugeot 205 T16 Evo 2.

Finally, Italy is the new Playgrounds location. Like South Africa and Arizona, it’s set to offer both clear and snowy weather conditions. It’s also going to be the first-ever arena with two different levels connected by a drop in the middle.

Talking about all the new content, Dirt 5 Development Director Robert Karp said in a press release that they have several plans for 2021 and this is but the beginning. He added that introducing new content is going to be the main focus of the team this year.
