On Friday, developer Codemasters confirmed on Twitter that the rallying game will also be offered on the Oculus Rift. While there are no further details, it’s safe to say that experiencing the game in VR should be a wild ride — you’ll be able to turn your head to look all around (probably not the best idea while going 120 mph over a blind summit).The game’s predecessor, Dirt Rally, also offered a virtual-reality experience that launched two years ago. Dirt Rally 2.0 promises “rebuilt and improved handling” and upgraded graphics. As ever, you’ll be able to drive a wide range of rally cars, with virtual tracks including locations in the US, New Zealand, Australia, Spain and Poland. It’ll also offer FIA Global Rallycross cars and courses.
