Free (S)no(w) Limits Pack for DIRT 5 Goes Live

Christmas is also being celebrated in DIRT 5, albeit a bit muddier than you're used to. For this, the developers are giving you the free (S)no(w) Limits pack, which brings with it some new content.

In addition to new, festive objects for the Playgrounds mode, there is a brand-new sprint race on the ice on Roosevelt Island and some new customization options for your own player profile. Festive paint jobs for the Ford Mustang GT4 and Porsche Cayenne Transsyberia are also on top. If that's not more than enough reasons to take the arcade racer for a spin or two, we don't know what is.
