Dirt 4 will be released on June 2017 for the Xbox One and PS4 platforms. This rally racing game will entail a variety of rally stages around Australia, the United States and Spain among other places. It will also offer many historic rallying cars dating back to the 1980s. This game has great online features including access to many live racing events.
You deserve a quality racing wheel to play Dirt 4 with instead of just using your standard gaming controller. There are a few good racing wheels worth considering for both the Xbox One and PS4. These are made with not only a variety of controls but also some of the most realistic textures and setups around.
Budget PS4: HORI Apex
The first PS4 option to see is the HORI Apex. Available for about $100, it uses a 270-degree rotation setup with pedals included plus a full mounting system to create a steady surface on any platform.
The clamps used to secure the pedals and wheel are especially easy to implement and will establish a solid and carefully orchestrated grip. You can also program all the buttons on the wheel. The wheel is about 11 inches in diameter as it is heavily inspired by what you’d find in traditional luxury cars.
Premium PS4: Logitech G29
Another PS4 option to find is the Logitech G29. The wheel uses a realistic design with a stitched leather cover plus solid steel ball bearings to keep the movement natural. The shifter is also made with stainless steel.
The vibration feedback works efficiently while the quiet gears create a smooth drive. The brake pads will even become stiff when added pressure is imposed onto your ride. This works perfectly for Dirt 4 and other newer racing games that offer more realistic functions and is not necessarily for older games.
For the Xbox One, the Thrustmaster Ferrari 458 is a good choice to find. Designed with two paddle shifters and a pair of pedals, this establishes a realistic feel. This is also a 7/10 replica of the wheel used by the real Ferrari 458 Spider vehicle.
The rubber grips come with bright red bodies. You can adjust the steering sensitivity feature as well. The 240-degree rotation especially establishes a realistic approach to driving. The mounting setup for this is sold separately but it should be easy to keep a quality grip ready on this unit no matter where you put it at.
Premium Xbox One: Logitech G920
The Logitech G920 is the second Xbox One wheel worth looking at. It also has solid steel bearings and a leather grip. The dual-motor force feedback can be felt while turning and accelerating among other things, thus giving it a more realistic approach.
The intensity of the feedback varies during each movement. LEDs are found in the wheel. The helical gearing setup also creates a smooth approach to driving while the three metal pedals give you more control over your experience. This is especially very easy to set up through a simple mounting system.
