Codemasters has unveiled the first details on DiRT 5's Career mode, in which you'll need to make your name and impress Alex Janièek, better known as AJ, voiced by Troy Baker. A superstar within DiRT 5's off-road racing world, AJ takes you on as his protégé, teaching you what it takes to rise to the top of the very sport he's dominated for years. The road to the top won't be easy, of course, and you'll have rivals like Bruno Durand to take on.

Voiced by Nolan North, Durand is an "ultra-competitive, cold, calculated veteran", and champion in multiple off-road racing disciplines. A clash between AJ and Durand inevitably ensues, paving the way for you to forge your own off-road racing legacy. You career will be covered as it unfolds in a DiRT Podcast by Donut Media, hosted by James Pumphrey and Nolan Sykes from the Donut crew, with special guests including AJ and Bruno, W Series champion Jamie Chadwick, and "gaming and car culture personality" SLAPTrain.

Spread across five chapters, you'll be able to take multiple paths through the DiRT 5 Career mode, although you can participate in every single one of the more than 130 events across nine different race types, if you so wish. Completing races will unlock new events, with higher placings earning more Stamps that can be used to unlock the Main Event that concludes each Career mode chapter. You can also complete certain objectives to unlock secret one-on-one Throwdowns against a "fierce challenger".

Twenty real-world brands will serve as sponsors in Career mode, too, like Monster Energy, Sparco, Michelin, Fatlace and (obviously) Codemasters, each with their own unique rewards and liveries upon signing with them. Sponsors will also have long and short-term objectives to complete, increasing your Reputation Rank, leading to an "ultimate reward" upon attaining the top rank.

Career mode will also include drop-in, drop-out split-screen for up to four players, each player taking the place of an AI driver on your team. Any highest finishing position between all four players is the one that's counted in Career, earning more potential Stamps, sponsor bonuses and currency, while each player earns XP and currency towards their own DiRT 5 accounts. Nice.

DiRT 5 will be coming to Xbox Series X, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, and PC from October 2020, before heading to Stadia in early 2021.
