DiRT 4, the rally game from Codemasters that was previously announced for Linux now finally has a date and it's this week! Feral Interactive just announced today that it's releasing this Thursday, 28th of March.
As for the system requirements, Feral also announced those details today as well. As expected, it's going to be using the Vulkan API.
At a minimum, you will need:
- OS: Ubuntu 18.04
- Processor: Intel® Core™ i3-3225 3.3ghz
- GPU: 2GB Nvidia 680, 2GB AMD R9 285 (GCN 3rd Gen and above) or better
- System RAM: 4 GB RAM
- Storage: 39GB
They did say other distributions are expected to work, however they're not supported by Feral. As for graphics drivers: If you have an NVIDIA GPU you will need driver version 418.43 or later. As for AMD, it will need Mesa 18.3.4 or later.
As usual, I will take a look at the game after release since there's no prior access and let you know how it runs plus some thoughts. If there is a built-in benchmarking mode, I will show that off too. I should also be doing a livestream of it on release day, so do follow GOL on Twitch!
Good to see more from Feral and there's other games on the way too remember. They're also officially porting Total War: THREE KINGDOMS, Shadow of the Tomb Raider and Life is Strange 2. Their work is always good, as is their support, so I do hope they continue after those titles.
