DiRT Rally (2015) started out as an exemplar of a PC rally racer, but after adding Oculus Rift support last year, the game has since become a hit in the VR community for its varied tracks, cars and true-to-life driving physics. For the next week, the game is on sale for a staggering 75% off on Humble Store.
The sale brings the game down from $60 to $12.50, and will last until September 21st, 1PM ET (local time here).
DiRT Rally only officially supports Oculus Rift, so HTC Vive owners looking to get into the drifting madness will have to use ReVive, a software hack that allows Vive owners to play Rift exclusives both purchased from the Oculus Store and elsewhere. The game is provided by Humble Bundle via Steam key.
Road to VR’s Dominic Brennan, a seasoned driving simulation enthusiast, called Dirt Rally thrilling, challenging and “one of the best in years.” Find out why he gave it a solid [8.3/10] in his detailed review.
