Tilt to steer with Dualshock 4 for Dirt Rally VR on PS4


I had recently bought the VR add-on for Dirt Rally, but I'm disappointed at the moment as I cannot find an option anywhere for steering via tilting the controller (you can do this in Driveclub) - as the DS4 supports this thanks to its in-built motion sensor. Is there an option somewhere that I have missed? Or is it not a feature? It would be greatly appreciated if it could be implemented in Dirt Rally if it currently isn't.

    Any help, anyone? I'm not sure if the devs read these forums.

    Thanks for the reply. That's awfully disappointing though. I just don't feel immersed in the game at all at the moment (as a result, I've only played the VR version twice - for five minutes each time), and I think that the lack of tilt to steer is the reason why. I hope that Codemasters will add it in soon, because it does wonders for immersion in Driveclub.

    I hope the devs take note. It should be really simple to implement and it would add a whole new dynamic to the game. The tech is there, just patch it :smile: Cheers

    I really hope it's added in. But I've tried reaching out to Codemasters, and they're dead silent on the issue.

    Agreed. I was looking for looking for a VR racing game after getting into Project Cars 2. Don't think I'd be ok with giving up tilt-to-steer though. going back to pad to pad input seems unappealing and i'm not going to invest in a full driving wheel setup...

    As AndreyVrey says, it's just mapping a new input and hopefully wouldn't be too tough. It'd be a definite purchase for me if they could implement this.

    I asked about this before DiRT Rally's release and never got a response.

    I don't know why this isn't standard in driving games. When I bought by PS4 4 years ago the only driving game I had for it was Driveclub (actually, that might have been the only one available). I didn't have a wheel and can't drive anything with a stick, even GTA but got on fine with the motion control. Initially I didn't buy Project cars because they said they wouldn't implement this.
     I now have a wheel and it's no comparison but tilt steering is a big step up in immersion and control over a stick.
    Some sim snobs will tell you it's only for Mario Cart but surely it's more realistic than a stick?
