Is EA Sports WRC VR compatible?

Virtual reality in racing games is growing more and more in popularity. With sim titles like Assetto Corsa and iRacing being compatible with VR, rally fans are wondering if EA Sports WRC will support VR also.

Considering F1 23 does support VR, but only on PC, it seemed beyond doubt that EA Sports WRC would also allow players to experience rallying in VR.

Thankfully, EA Sports WRC will bring players into the action with VR support on PC. Now players can ride every bump, hairpin and tree-lined dirt track closer than ever before on their VR headsets.

Sadly, EA Sports WRC won’t support PSVR 2, just like F1 23. This is another big blow to console players.

EA Sports WRC will support triple-screens

Triple-screen is the best alternative to VR for players who don't have a VR headset. Whether for hardware or motion sickness reasons, not every player wants to play a racing game in VR.

WRC players without a VR headset, don’t worry. EA Sports WRC will have triple-screen support from launch according to the Steam page for a wider view of the action. Now you can create the perfect panoramic triple-screen setup to see every square inch of every stage in EA Sports WRC.

PC players can also configure the graphics settings to optimise EA Sports WRC for their setup, but Codemasters has yet to reveal which options are available.
