Dirt 5 hotfix patches PS5 CE-108255-1 crashes

Codemasters has released a hotfix for Dirt 5 on PlayStation 5, targeting the game crashes with error code CE-108255-1 that appeared after the release of Patch 3.00 on 22nd February.

Update 3.00 might have brought new events, content for the Playgrounds mode and a bunch of fixes, but it’s been a troublesome update for players on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5. Codemasters had to quickly release Patch 3.01 on 24th February to address “incorrect store links, localisation errors, GPU hangs and an audio bug”, but PS5 owners continued to be plagued by crashes with error code CE-108255-1.


The CE-108255-1 error seemed to be linked with playing the career mode, and so while Codemasters offered general Dirt 5 troubleshooting tips, their general advice was to play other game modes, such as Arcade, Playgrounds and multiplayer. Not the best advice to have to be giving for a whole week, but fingers cross the hotfix resolves this issue and players can get back to the career.

Update 3.00 was the first big update of 2021, with the premium Energy Content Pack promising new cars, new career events and new sponsors. There were 25 new events in the career and the following new cars:

  • Porsche Taycan Turbo S
  • Alpine A110 Sports X
  • Chevrolet Silverado 1500
  • GMC Sierra Pre-Runner

Update 3.00 also brought a bunch of free new content to the Playgrounds mode, with a new set of Junkyard Playgrounds items, including washing machines, sheds and finishing gates covered in flames. There’s even a big scrap-built dinosaur sculpture that will bring tears to the eyes of Scrapheap Challenge fans. There will also be a new Italy environment for you to build your custom creations in.

As well as this, there will be a set of new bespoke liveries for the Peugeot 205 T16 Evo 2, Ford Escort RS Cosworth, Ford RS200, some community-requested features like an increase to the Level cap, and a bunch of visual and technical fixes and improvements across the board.

  1. It doesn’t solve the problem as the game still crashes, although not as often.
    I found a way to get around the crashes (mostly) – after each race go back to the main menu then to career again. Quick to do on PS5 but it may be a pain on PS4.

  2. The update today (3.002) seems to have fixed the problem.
