DiRT 4 has a solid release date of June 9th. It’s set to arrive on Steam for PC, PS4 and the Xbox One. The title is currently available right now for pre-purchase eight weeks ahead of its launch, and a lot of fans are completely stoked for the upcoming game’s release.

The Sixth Axis recently reported that due to the dearth of VR content for the PlayStation VR, it’s possible Codemasters could look into supporting PSVR functionality post-launch. Codemasters noted that PSVR support is something they’re “considering”, giving hope to owners of Sony’s VR headset…

“DiRT 4 won’t be PS VR ready at launch, as until then we’re focusing on making the base game as best it can be. However, it’s definitely something we’re considering once that’s done. Don’t worry – we’ll keep you posted on any updates on that front!”

This follows up on a recent video from PlayStation Access who captured 13 minutes worth of gameplay across the different racing disciplines in DiRT 4 based on a press event in Barcelona. You can check out the video below.

A lot of people loved the gameplay and the graphics, but they complained about the game’s “robotic” co-pilot who gives players constant instructions on how to race through the narrow turns and the hilly tracks.

The footage above is from the alpha build of the game. We later get to see the Rallycross championship where multiple cars are duking it out on a wide track in 4×4 trucks. There’s more bumping and grinding going on than a VIP room in a strip club located in downtown Atlanta.

The final segment features a Ford Focus racing lean and mean against a handful of other cars on an asphalt track at Montalegre in Portugal.

The physics look good, the frame-rate looked stable, and the driving looked solid.

You can expect to get your hands on DiRT 4 come June 8th in just two month’s time. For more info feel free to visit the official website.

    Looks more like Dirt 2 than Rally, so it’s going back to a more arcadish style. That’s not necessarily a bad thing as I enjoyed both games.

    Would’ve been nice to get the track builder for Rally though, making it a true successor to RBR. Maybe they’ll patch it in?

    The Co-driver’s are generally robotic in all rally games but Rally has track specific pace notes, I’d imagine they just weren’t ready for the alpha test.

    Anyways, looking forward to this, love my rally games!
