    It's all digital now Decks, no more sexy cardboard boxes.

    Hopefully this one will have more tracks than the last. It was excellent indeed.

    YAS. Hand crafted stages as well none of that procedural shit from 4. Deformation on the tracks as well. If they fuck up the handling I'm shooting up their offices.

    Loved Dirt Rally. It actually affected my ability to enjoy other racing games for a while. Definitely my favourite sim racer.

    I imagine this will refine the first Dirt Rally rather than continue the changes within Dirt 4.

    To be fair there were things to like with the handling in 4. The tarmac handling was much improved for one. If they can keep improvements while returning to the sim style handling of Rally it should be amazing.

    Please don't do that, I quite like my office.

    They haven't done vr in anything since dirt rally, have they actually confirmed vr for this?

    The Quattro S1 E2... oh dear. I know it's always been a popular request, and I welcome it too, but I'm not looking forward to becoming an utter nervous wreck. I'm going to age years next March

    Don't think so. I'm just hoping, but I doubt they'll add it.

    Looking good. And also very doable on PSVR.

    Well my interest in Dirt Rally 2 has now sunk to zero :(

    https://www.usgamer.net/articles/dirt-rally-20-has-no-vr-support-planned

    Guess I'll stick with the first one, I just can't go back to flat screen driving.

    Yeah a damn shame.

    From the article it might be something they do down the line eventually if there is "demand" so that's something to hold on to I guess but it still means I won't be buying at launch....on the plus side if they do put support in the game will be cheap as chips to buy at that point.

    Some snippets


    Confirmed locations:

    Waikato (NZ)
    Argentina
    Spain
    Poland
    Australia
    USA


    More locations to come via DLC. As for the locations of DR1, chief designer Rodd Gowing says "in the first six months after launch we're going to bring back some of the fan favourites", so I guess at least Wales, Monte Carlo and Finland are coming as DLC at some point.


    Rally pro Jon Armstrong (that's the rally driver involved in DR2 development) doing NZ in the Golf mk2:




    VR: apparently not CM's major concern right now, but they hinted at it possibly being implemented later

    I know motion platforms are a crazy idea, but this thing seems kind of "elegant" from a technical perspective, as it's just half a sphere and base with a couple motors in them.

    It's great in VR but I'll still be all over it on release. I just hope it is he track deformation doesn't fuck things up.

    I'd be cool if you could be the co-pilot in co-op. Then switch places after each race.

    It is impossible to go back that's why :)

    Personally after I got my rift in February I exclusively play driving games in VR. That now means any game that doesn't have support is automatically uninteresting to me regardless of the quality sadly.

    I've ignored F1 & Forza Horizon 4 this year and the only reason was no VR support. There is just no point buying them as I would not play them as that's not how I play these days so why buy and play flat screen driving games when I can buy and play the games that do offer the experience I want?
