Great news! Although you’ve all been aware of this development for a little while, we’re delighted to confirm that we will be adding official Oculus Rift support to the PC version of DiRT Rally later this month.
As you’d expect with VR, the update will immerse players into the world of rally like never before – with the challenge of DiRT Rally taking on a whole new dimension. You’ll be absorbed even further into the game as you take on some of the most challenging real life rally locations in the world, battling the elements in glorious VR.
And it’s not just rally that the VR experience will heighten, either. Ever wondered what it’s like to peer over the edge at Broadmoor Pikes Peak International Hill Climb, or look around you on the starting grid of an FIA World Rallycross Championship race? This update will bring Oculus users even closer to these situations and settings, putting them into the heart of the action like never before.
So when’s it arriving, we hear you ask? DiRT Rally VR will release with the Oculus Store on 11th July, while existing PC players will receive an update on the same day too. Here’s just a little taster of what you can expect when it lands next week:
For those of you with kits in their homes or on their way, it’s time to buckle up – because if you thought DiRT Rally was a bumpy ride before, you’re going to feel it more than ever! When we’ve been playing it the office, we’ve had people flinching, leaning and screaming in their rigs, so we can safely say: get ready to have your senses assaulted.
