Dirt 4 screenshot of a car sliding on an off-road track

Dirt 4 is a rally-themed racing game that forsakes the well-maintained racing tracks in favor of a more off-road experience, with races often taking place in both rough terrain and weather. After being available on Windows and consoles for around two years at this point, Dirt 4 has now finally made its way to Linux and macOS as well!

The new ports have not been made by the original developers, however, but rather by Feral Interactive. They've previously worked on the macOS and Linux versions of games like Total War: Warhammer, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided and Tomb Raider, so while I haven't tested Dirt 4 myself, chances are it's going to be a pretty competent port.

As for whether Dirt 4 itself is worth grabbing, I'm afraid I'm entirely the wrong person to ask given that I don't really play racing games, but what I can tell you is that the reviews are currently somewhat mixed. The main point of contention appear to be the somewhat arcadey and unrealistic car physics, so if you're looking for a completely serious rally game, Dirt 4 might end up being a bit of a disappointment.

Whatever the case may be, I would highly recommend reading a bit more about it on Steam before making up your mind. And just for good measure, allow me to leave you with the launch trailer. Enjoy!
