For those that love realistic racing videogames and virtual reality (VR), Codemasters’ DiRT Rally franchise has been one of the go-to series for several years with DiRT Rally VR arriving in 2016 and then DiRT Rally 2.0 adding VR support last summer. Today, the studio has announced DiRT Rally 2.0 Game of the Year Edition will be rolled out in a couple of weeks for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. There’s an extra boon for those that own the Oculus Store version, free access to all post-launch content.
In a blog posting, Codemasters confirmed that: “DiRT Rally 2.0 Game of the Year Edition brings with it a significant milestone to our players on the Oculus platform, who have only had access to the Standard Edition up until now.”
When the launch takes place: “all Oculus users will have their game updated to the Game of the Year Edition, making all post-launch content (including the Colin McRae: FLAT OUT Pack) playable in the dramatic world of virtual reality. If you’ve just got a headset and are ready to take on the world of rally, this is the perfect place to start,” the team adds. That means over 80 cars like the Peugeot 206 Rally and the Skoda Fabia Rally and 26 locations to race such as Wales, Monte Carlo, Sweden, Germany, Greece and Finland.
If you happen to own the Steam version which supports Oculus Rift, HTC Vive and Valve Index headsets then you’ve been able to access additional content for a while. Those that purchased either DiRT Rally 2.0 Deluxe Edition or any full Season pack receive the new Colin McRae bonus content for free.
DiRT Rally 2.0 GOTY includes seasons 1-4 and the Colin McRae ‘FLAT OUT’ pack’ featuring a new Scottish location, Perth and Kinross, with 12 routes, the SUBARU Impreza S4 Rally and SUBARU Legacy RS, and 40 scenarios spanning the legendary rally driver’s career from 1984 to 2006.
The digital edition of DiRT Rally 2.0 Game of the Year Edition will be available on 24th March while the physical versions (Xbox One and PlayStation 4 only) arrive on 27th March. For further VR related updates and announcements from Codemasters keep reading VRFocus.
