Yep, that’s right – you’ll now be able to play the highest rated racing game on PlayStation 4* with PS VR. The upgrade, which will be available as DLC for existing players on the PlayStation Store, will also be available from retail with a new boxed version of DiRT Rally, which comes complete with the VR add-on.

The PS VR functionality will give you a fully immersive off-road experience, with the upgraded game supporting every car, every route and every discipline within DiRT Rally.

Interested? Well, good! Our new trailer for the PlayStation VR update is available here. Take a look and see what you think:

The update will put PlayStation VR users into the world of rally like never before, as they take on some of the most challenging rally stages and environments in the world. Not only this, but they’ll be able to take on a certain Colorado-based iconic Hill Climb, and try their hand at top-tier multi-car racing in the FIA World Rallycross Championship.

But that’s not all! As well as allowing you to drive any of the stunning Rally, Rallycross and Hillclimb cars in full VR, the update to DiRT Rally will enable a game-changing second player to join in on the fun. Using a DUALSHOCK 4® controller, the second player will take the on the role of co-driver – using the social screen to understand when to send calls to the driver using the DUALSHOCK 4 buttons and touchpad. Making those calls at the right time will be the difference between the driver hearing the correct information at the right time, so it’s crucial that this is executed properly.
