Dirt 5 Debuts First Xbox Series S Gameplay

Since the announcement of the Xbox Series S, one of the questions about Microsoft’s cheaper, less-powerful console has been how it will handle next-generation games. Dirt 5 doesn’t entirely fit that bill, but its latest snippet of gameplay is the first footage from the Series S.

The footage itself isn’t all that exciting, showing off a cramped course with lots of brown walls and dimly let tunnels. When the racing does emerge into the sunlight, there’s some nice lighting details on mud puddles on the track and reflections on the interior of the car. Perhaps most importantly, it seems to run very smoothly.

Dirt 5 will support up to 120 FPS on the Xbox Series X, but developer Codemasters has not yet confirmed if that’s the case for the Series S too. Both consoles, equipped with HDMI 2.1, will support higher frame rates, with the Series X targeting 4K resolutions while the Series S limits that to 1440p. You can read up on all the differences between the two consoles and what they mean here.

Both the Xbox Series X and Series S will launch on November 10, with Dirt 5 being delayed recently to secure itself a launch on the same day. The Series X will retail for $500, while the Series S comes in cheaper at $300. Pre-orders for both consoles will open soon, so check out our pre-order guide for all the details.
