‘DiRT Rally’ PSVR Support is Here, Limited-time Bundle is the Best Value on Any Platform

News Bits


Having launched initially with VR on the Oculus Rift in 2016, new DiRT Rally DLC adds PSVR support to the acclaimed racing game. The $13 DLC also brings a new ‘Co-Driver Mode’ that lets one player act as the navigator. A $43 Dirt Rally bundle for PS4 includes the base game, three mini DLC packs and the PSVR add-on together, making it a significant value over the $60 Oculus and Steam versions of the game.

PSVR support for Dirt Rally is finally here. Considered one of the best VR racing sims thus far, PlayStation VR nabs a solid new piece of content which comes with a unique Co-driver Mode that’s not available elsewhere. In the new mode, two players work together with one player wearing the headset for immersive driving and the other player using the TV to call out pace notes—vital information about the track ahead which lets the driver go as fast as possible while maintaining control. The Dirt Rally PSVR upgrade is $13 in the PlayStation Store.

'DiRT Rally' VR Review

If you don’t already own Dirt Rally but want to buy it for the new PSVR support, you’ll want to nab the Dirt Rally PlayStation VR Bundle. Priced at $43, this includes the full Dirt Rally game, three ‘Fully Loaded’ mini DLC packs, and the PSVR upgrade, all in one package. The bundle deal expires on February 28th.

With Dirt Rally on Oculus Home and Steam both priced at $60 (and missing the Co-driver Mode), the PSVR version presently offers the best value you’ll find if you’re looking to play the game in VR.

While Dirt Rally is available on Steam, it presently only supports the Rift. There’s no word yet on whether or not Vive support will follow the new PSVR support, but our fingers are definitely crossed.

    I to figure out promptly whether I want to get Dirt Rally or Rhombus Of Ruin and Mervilles.

    I’m not a huge car fan, but this game is getting so much hype that I want to experience it.

  • Doug

    I already own Dirt Rally on the Xbox One platform, but am GLADLY buying this for the PSVR (the bundle price is only $40). I thought Driveclub VR was great, too, so getting Dirt Rally was a no-brainer.

    I know we can all play DR on the VIve with a mod, but the fact that they have not bothered with the Vive audience to do an official release seems a bit odd.

    Next to Elite: Dangerous, this is my most-played VR game on Oculus Rift by a long, long, long shot. Between this and Project Cars, I will never be able to go back to racing on a flatscreen.

    From here on out, if your racing game doesn’t ship with VR support, it might as well not exist.

      Agreed! Project Cars with a good wheel setup/pedal setup (I use a Logitech G920) is brilliant in VR.
