DiRT Rally gets update for PS VR support

As promised, Codemasters has released a new update for DiRT Rally which introduces support for the PlayStation VR headset. It has also added a new Co-Driver mode where a second player can give important tips using the controller and the social screen.


Codemasters launches today the PlayStation VR update for DiRT Rally. The update makes the whole title playable in VR and introduces a new Co-Driver mode where a second player can give relevant suggestions using the controllers and the social screen.

Here are all the details reported by the official press release:

Available for existing players as a standalone DLC Add-on via the PlayStation Store for £9.99 and as a ‘DiRT Rally PLUS VR Upgrade’ retail version from Argos and new digital bundle from the PlayStation Store, the update fully immerses you in the world of rally, putting you directly at the wheel of some of the most iconic cars ever to ever take to a stage.

Every game mode within DiRT Rally is playable as the driver in VR including rallycross and hill climb. In addition, the new Co-Driver Mode means that on the rally stages a second player can 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. Timing and accuracy are vital, just like in real life, in order for you to complete the stage in the best time possible.
