Codemasters have already rolled out Dirt 5's update v1.04 for PC platforms, and now it's time for PlayStation and Xbox, in both current and next-gen iterations.

The update should be live on PlayStation and Xbox platforms, and if the latter isn't the case yet - it should be really soon. 

As for the improvements, Dirt 5 v1.04 brings "multiple performance improvements across the board, reducing instances of crashes, gameplay stuttering and FPS drops, further optimising general gameplay."

Xbox users should no longer encounter the issue that causes loss of controller vibration/rumble. On the other side of the console war, PlayStation 4 owners will no longer face problems stemming from data created before the previous patch, i.e. progress disappearing and crashes in the livery editor. 

Both current and next-gen PlayStations received V-Sync, while PS5 required some refinements on the DualSense adaptive triggers. 

Signing out during a Gymkhana event will no longer cause crashes. Spare Some Change for Gas trophy/achievement now requires players to race for 1,000 miles, rather than 10,000. 

Dirt 5 got a number of visual tweaks, starting with rain effects on windshields when using interior camera views. The rewards screen in the post-race menu has also been addressed. 

Last but not least are Dirt 5's multiplayer tweaks. Improvements have been made in kicking players in the lobby who don't ready up, and some to online matchmaking and lobby searches.
