I dont even like DiRT 5, but are we really going to act like they just straight up ripped models from a game that released in 2012 (almost a decade ago!) with no remodelling/touchups? DiRT Showdown didn't even have a cockpit view, DiRT 5 does!
Codemasters definitely hasn't made the best decisions in recent years, but this is a bit of a reach... I think it's pretty cool that they acknowledged Showdown's existence tbh, even if that game divided DiRT fans.
I am on PS5, I hope this update fixes the random game freezes after races, where I'm unable to do click anything or continue, and subsequently have to close the game and do the race again because the progress didn't save. Anyone else experience this?
Something about the presence and the overall aesthetic of these fictional cars reminds me so much of the good old MotorStorm games. They somehow fit right into Dirt 5's festival atmosphere more than I thought they would.
