Oculus Rift VR support for DiRT Rally on PC available now

Kevin Dooley On July 11, 2016

Codemasters have released a new update for the PC version of DiRT Rally today which allows players to play the game in VR using the Oculus Rift headset.

DiRT Rally Subaru Impreza
The version 1.2 Steam update is around 10GB in size and is available right now, also DiRT Rally is now available to buy at the Oculus Store. We've had no confirmation yet whether or not DiRT Rally will be supported by the HTC Vive or PlayStation VR headsets but we're keeping our fingers crossed for that.

Codemasters have shared some VR tips which should help you get the most out of the technology, check it out below.

VR in Dirt Rally – Quick Tips

• To get the game to boot in VR, simply plug in your Oculus headset before you press Play in Steam.
• We don’t recommend you turn on VR in the Steam Client, as doing so will disable the Steam Overlay on the desktop image of the game.
• To re-centre your view, just hit the Left Ctrl key.
• We have added configurable options in the HUD settings in order to reduce motion sickness, which are active by default. We’ve also given each track a comfort rating as a guide to help control motion sickness.
• DK2 does work with the VR version of DiRT Rally.
In terms of fixes, it’s a very short list – but this is one that will improve some of your replays no end:
• Graphics – Motion blur being applied to AI cars.
