The Linux port of DiRT 4 from Feral Interactive is releasing March 28th

Posted by , | Views: 4,229

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.

You will be able to get it from the Feral Store, Humble Store and Steam.

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.

Sad to see they are porting old and not very good game. Luckily it seems there are people who liked the regular DIRT series and not DiRT Rally, so i hope it will sell enough for them. I myself was hoping DiRT Rally 2.0 port closer to release, but sadly not the case. Luckily it works wonderfully with wine-staging (sadly FFB doesn't work with proton)

This is oddly true for a few games, where FFB doesn't work with Proton but does with Wine. Hopefully they can get that fixed as racing games are still a patchwork of remembering which works where...

Is this meant as a general statement or specific to DR2? I'm playing Assetto Corsa Competizione with Steam Play/Proton and FFB works just wonderfully with my G25.

Wernerwhy is that stupid? Feral maybe use Vulkan and for that it needs a Driver to support it or the specific Vulkan extension. To install the ppa which has the driver is really not a issue and if you use a Nvidia Card then you know already how to install a driver.


Because not everyone is running that version of driver nor Ubluntu.

it is certainly interesting, to say, at least, taking in consideration that the game has worked for a long time on wine and also for some time on proton; that, there is still market share to milk the cow a little more. Maybe the game being older has something to do because it has a wider audience, because of the hardware. makes you think with so many companies releasing linux games post-proton era, that we are not such a small market after all, (maybe in percentages but not in hard numbers).

and thats the reason that Feral is stupid? because your distro doesn't support the driver? How about installing the Nvidia driver from the Nvidia site.

Maybe to DR2, and a few other titles. I think Project Cars works with Proton without FFB, but if you run it through Wine FFB works...
