Your Setup

As you know by now, iRacing is found on the PC as its only platform. so that's the first thing you will need. In terms of specs, however, the good news is that iRacing is not demanding. As long as you have a somewhat modern system, you should be in the clear and not needing any updates or so.

The monthly membership

Furthermore, the game runs in a peculiar way. You don't pay for the game itself, but to play, you have to subscribe to the iRacing membership.

This is a deal-breaker for many because of having an additional monthly subscription on top of your Netflix, Spotify, PS Plus, and so on. You might not be interested in paying more monthly subscriptions, even if you like racing. However, iRacing can be worth the price. It's up to you to decide!
