Feral Interactive have adjusted their mirrors and put things into high gear with DiRT 4 on the way to Linux. Originally developed and published by Codemasters for PC and consoles, this is the same studio that made titles like F1 2017, DiRT Rally, GRID Autosport and more.
Word went out in public on Twitter earlier today from Feral to confirm a 2019 release. This means we will be getting it quite a while after the original release, which according to Steam was in June of 2017.
Thanks to that, we now have quite a few Linux ports from Feral due next year. DiRT 4, Life is Strange 2, Shadow of the Tomb Raider and Total War: THREE KINGDOMS. Already gearing up to be busy!
From the press release:
DiRT 4‘s fleet of over 50 rally cars, buggies, trucks and crosskarts includes the Ford Fiesta R5, Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution VI, Subaru WRX STI NR4 and Audi Sport quattro S1 E2. Players will put these incredible machines through their paces on the world’s most demanding rally routes, from the dirt roads of Australia to the hazardous snowdrifts of Sweden and on to the open gravel tracks of Michigan USA.
Feral’s press release also mentioned that DiRT 4 gives you the ability to generate your own stages, based on players’ choice of location and route parameter. That sounds pretty interesting, not something that has been done before in the franchise.
Are you excited? Let us know in the comments, just be sure to stay on track.
More info when we have it.
