Less than 24 hours after release, DiRT Rally VR has received support from Revive, allowing HTC Vive owners to enjoy Codemasters’ excellent racing title on their VR headsets.
LibreVR, the developer behind Revive, has added support for Codemaster’s DiRT Rally VR. The update comes a mere day after it appeared on the Oculus Home store, and Rift support was patched into its Steam version, this is another impressive turnaround from the LibreVR team who already support a large number of Oculus Home games.
For the uninitiated, Revive allows HTC Vive owners to play games intended to run on the Oculus Rift platform. Its existence has been occasionally controversial but Revive has undeniably become an essential tool for many Vive owners.
Like all other Revive compatible titles, this update works on both the Oculus Home and Steam versions of the game, but requires Oculus Home to be installed to run.
Thanks to Revive it would appear that the days of scanning developer Tweets and forums for news of Vive ports are numbered, and following Oculus’ change of heart regarding headset checks as part of software DRM, you don’t even have to feel bad about using it.
DiRT Rally VR is now available on Oculus Home and Steam platforms. The official VR support was added via a Steam update to the original title, meaning those who already have the game receive it for free.
