DiRT Rally Is Coming To macOS Sometime This Year

Posted by October 10, 2017 Comment

Feral Interactive announced today that DiRT Rally, the acclaimed rallycross sim, will be released for macOS later this year. Developed and published by Codemasters for Windows and consoles, DiRT Rally has been praised for its realistic handling and pure focus on rally driving. DiRT Rally will support Metal 2, Apple’s latest graphics API. Feral Interactive are pretty well known for doing macOS and Linux ports of PC and console titles. They mostly work with Square Enix, 2K Games, Sega, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and Codemasters specifically to publish mac and Linux versions of their games. As Codemasters are one of Feral’s partners, them giving us a DiRT Rally port is pretty much par for the course.

DiRT Rally is the most authentic rally game ever made, with a highly sophisticated handling model that perfectly captures the exhilaration of driving cars at the edge of control while tearing along treacherous, undulating tracks at breakneck speed. Its high-risk, high-reward gameplay challenges players to learn and master three different disciplines: the point-to-point races of Rally, the tight circuits of Rallycross, and the legendary slopes of Hillclimb.

Players will hurtle down the most dangerous tracks in the world, from the crumbling hillsides of Greece to the icy forest trails of Sweden and on to the rain-drenched dirt roads of the Welsh countryside. As they get to grips with rain, snow and fog as well as hairpin bends, slippery asphalt and loose gravel, players will fine-tune their cars to suit the terrain, weather and their own driving style.

DiRT Rally puts players behind the wheel of over 45 of the most iconic cars from the 1980s to the present day, including the MINI Cooper S, Peugeot 205 T16 Evo 2 and the Lancia Delta S4 from the celebrated Group B era of rally racing.

DiRT Rally offers players a thrilling, mud-splattered racing experience, but under the bonnet, it’s a meticulously-crafted game,” said David Stephen, Managing Director of Feral Interactive. “As they tweak the brake bias and gear ratios of their cars, and take their skill and concentration to the limit on every combination of road surface and weather condition, players will discover a great game that’s driven by detail.”

DiRT Rally for macOS will be available from the Feral Store and Steam for $59.99/£39.99/€49.99, and from the Mac App Store for $44.99/£43.99/€49.99.

System requirements will be confirmed closer to release, but you probably don’t want to try running the game on a 2009 macbook pro, I speak from personal experience there.
