DiRT Rally 2.0 Force Feedback Update Has Arrived


It’s what everyone’s been waiting for, the DiRT Rally 2.0 force feedback update is now available to download. Update 1.4.1 adds a new option to the Vibration & Feedback tab called ‘Suspension’ which will have its default set to 100, meaning players may experience some severe force feedback starting today.

Codemasters has acknowledged that many fans were unimpressed with the DiRT Rally 2.0 force feedback and have been busy working at ways to provide every player with the best handling they could want. The new Suspension option should give players more control over their wheels, and give a more responsive feel to their vehicle as it hits every bump on the road.

For players that were happy with how their force feedback was before the update, turning the Suspension slider completely off to 0 will configure your handling to how it was before update 1.4.1. Check out the official Input Device Guide for DiRT Rally 2.0 here. To read more about the DiRT Rally 2.0 force feedback update, check the official blog post here.

Codemasters has also announced that information regarding season 2 content will be released tomorrow, so stay tuned for more exciting news on DiRT Rally 2.0.
