DiRT Rally PlayStation VR Support Coming Soon as Paid DLC

DiRT Rally is getting PlayStation VR support in the coming weeks, developer Codemasters announced today. Current owners of DiRT Rally will be able to grab the upgrade DLC from the PlayStation Store for £9.99/$12.99 USD, while everyone else can buy a new version of DiRT Rally through retail stores and the PlayStation Store, which includes the VR add-on.

Along with PSVR support, which makes the entire game playable in “fully immersive VR,” the upcoming DiRT Rally DLC will also add a new Co-Driver Mode for the rally sections of the game:

This new feature allows a second player to become engrossed in the action as they use the buttons and touchpad on a DualShock 4 to give the pace note calls to the driver from the social screen. Just like with real life co-driving, timing and accuracy are vital in order for you to complete the stage in the best time possible.

DiRT Rally Chief Games Designer Paul Coleman added:

The PlayStation VR upgrade allows you to get closer than ever to the experience of being a real life rally driver. The addition of the co-driver mode also allows you to work together with a friend to get through the stage and adds an even deeper level of realism and immersion to the rally stages.

DiRT Rally was our 2016 Racing Game of the Year.
