DiRT 4 is officially coming to Linux, port from Feral Interactive

By - | Views: 13,036

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.

Dunno why they decided to port a game that already works w/ proton. They'd better go for shadow of mordor 2...

It may be old, and it's not Dirt Rally 2, but I don't care. I'll definitely buy it anyway.

Because some of us don't play games in Proton and would rather wait for actual Linux ports that actually help support the platform rather than developers that don't give a damn about your existence.

Remember that Proton doesn't works on OSX yet, we aren't they only market they point towards.

If it’s released on GOG and is more arcade than Dirt Rally (playable with a gamepad), then hell yeah.

KimyrielleOne thing I don't understand about Feral's porting choices is that it (to me) makes very little sense to port games older than half a year. There is a very high chance that people interested in the game already bought it for Windows and run it in WINE. The rest isn't going to buy it anyway.
I don’t buy games for Windows unless I really want them and they cost less than 5€.

I'm looking forward to this, and will probably get it as soon as it's released. It's the expanded career mode that interests me most. I know some people don't like Dirt 4 so much, or find the handling a step down from Dirt Rally, but I've really had so many hours of fun out of Dirt Rally, that even if it's a little lacking in some areas, it'll certainly be on my playlist. I think pretty much anything Feral releases which can be controlled by a wheel and pedals is a buy for me.
