After months of waiting, Codemasters finally unveiled the system requirements needed to play the new DIRT 5. Skimming through the list of requirements makes one realize that it is likely that the DIRT chain of franchise will not be extremely demanding in nature for the new game. However, we still don’t know the explicit details regarding the experience offered by these minimum specifications recommended by Codemasters.

These are just some of the requirements that make it apparent that this game will not be too demanding. Most players with decent computers will be able to play DIRT 5 easily since the requirements do not ask for a much-advanced computer.

One of the top concerns for fans was the official soundtrack of the game. Before the official requirements needed to run DIRT 5 were revealed, Codemasters also decided to reveal details about the official soundtrack to be featured in the game. The soundtrack will feature more than 40 popular artists to make the experience even more enjoyable. Some of the popular brands featured in the game include Tesla, The Chemical Brothers, Pearl Jam, The Killers, The Sherlocks and American Authors. The game also features other equally amazing artists.
