DiRT Rally News Post

Codemasters is adding Oculus Rift support for DiRT Rally, on July 11. Fans will be able download it from the Oculus Store. Existing PC players will receive the update on the same day.

As youd 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. Youll 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 its not just rally that the VR experience will heighten, either. Ever wondered what its 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.

For those of you with kits in their homes or on their way, its time to buckle up because if you thought DiRT Rally was a bumpy ride before, youre going to feel it more than ever! When weve been playing it the office, weve had people flinching, leaning and screaming in their rigs, so we can safely say: get ready to have your senses assaulted.

I've heard positive reviews about Dirt Rally in VR on other racing forums. Now I am not presently playing Dirt Rally in VR on the Rift because I presently don't own the Rift. But I am playing Project Cars in VR using my Vive and I have to say that all the hype about VR is not hype. It's true. The immersion factors in VR are all they are said to be. You actually feel like you are in the car and you can look to your apexes. It's awesome. Now the resolution isn't where we would like it to be with both the Rift and the Vive. But the immersion of being in VR makes you quickly forget about the less than ideal resolution. Plus we are in early days regarding VR sim racing technology. It will only get better in the coming years. But I decided to get into it now because I am not getting any younger and I want to enjoy driving at the limit in VR before I get too old for all this.

Warning though, it does require a high end PC with a high end GPU. I am presently running an i7 6700 CPU with a NVidia 1080 GPU and it was worth every penny for my new VR sim racing hobby. 2D monitors are obsolete. VR is the future for sim racing. You have to try it, but once you do you will see the light.
