GeForce 368.69 drivers are ready for Dirt Rally VR

Nvidia is keeping up the pace with its "Game Ready" driver releases, and today marks the release of the 368.69 WHQL driver. The big-ticket item this time around is support for Dirt Rally. The latest entry in Codemasters' rally-racing franchise briefly had VR support, but it was buggy and lacking in basic usability features like VR-friendly menus. Codemasters' next update to the game, due "any day now," will be reintroducing VR support with Oculus SDK 1.3, and the game will be debuting on the Oculus Home storefront, as well.

Also included in the new driver are SLI profiles for Armored Warfare, Lost Ark, and iRacing: Motorsport Simulator. No new known issues have cropped up since the last release, but that multi-monitor power bug that Jeff wrote about awhile back is still listed. GeForce owners can pick up the latest driver through the GeForce Experience app or download it from Speaking of GeForce Experience, Nvidia is offering a beta test of version 3.0, and it's giving away GTX 1080s to random testers for the trouble. Sign up for that beta here.

    Driving games and flight sims seem to be a good match for the current version of VR, since you’re supposed to be seated and tethered into into a helmet/visor and anyway.

      I kind of want to splurge and buy the Vive, wheel+pedals, a seat and a GTX1080 to power it, but I’m afraid I’ll just play with it for a bit and then get bored of it despite it apparently being very immersive

    Dirt Rally and Project CARS both benefitted greatly from lots of community feedback, but also suffer from feeling perpetually unfinished.

    The hard launch for Dirt Rally felt like an arbitrary milestone at least 3-6 months early.

      Agreed. Dirt Rally still feels like a [i<]mostly[/i<] baked product. I really enjoy it, but it seems to be lacking a lot of features. You can't even choose your track/location in singleplayer mode. You can tell it what type of race you want to do, select your car, and it just randomly decides whether or not you're going to run a mild, short sprint in England, or a grueling full-length run in snowy Swedish backroads. I will say that Project Cars certainly seems much more "done" than Dirt Rally, though.

        You can select everything including specific track or weather in “custom” games in Dirt Rally. I agree that it still feels only “mostly” finished though – the ingame stuff is quite solid, but the surrounding stuff (particularly the “campaign” and “crew” stuff) is very half-baked.

        Still very much looking forward to Dirt Rally VR support!

    Great, maybe next they can add Trackball support.
