We zijn er al achter gekomen dat Playstation VR uitermate geschikt is voor racegames. Ook Codemasters ziet dit in en komt binnenkort met de toevoeging van een VR mode in DiRT Rally!

Codemasters kondigt vandaag aan dat het in de komende weken PlayStation VR support zal toevoegen voor DiRT Rally op PlayStation 4. Deze VR-compatibiliteitsupgrade zal verkrijgbaar zijn als een losstaande DLC Add-On voor bestaande spelers via de PlayStation Store, en als de nieuwe ‘DiRT Rally PLUS VR Upgrade’ retail versie, en dompelt je al racend onder in een complete VR-ervaring van de volledige game, die elke auto, track en manoeuvre ondersteunt.

Paul Coleman, Chief Games Designer, DiRT Rally, zegt het volgende:

“The PlayStation VR upgrade allows you to get closer than ever to the experience of being a real life rally driver. The addition of the co-driver mode also allows you to work together with a friend to get through the stage and adds an even deeper level of realism and immersion to the rally stages.”

“As well as allowing you to drive any of the stunning rally, rallycross and hill climb cars in full VR, the update to DiRT Rally will add a completely new Co-Driver Mode to the rally sections of the game. This new feature allows a second player to 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. Just like with real life co-driving, timing and accuracy are vital in order for you to complete the stage in the best time possible.”
 
“The update will immerse players into the world of rally like never before as they take on some of the most challenging rally stages in the world, as well as multi-car racing at three locations in the FIA World Rallycross Championship.”
