Driving video games

There are lots of driving video games out there that you can download to help pass the time during lockdown. They’re great fun to play by yourself or in an online competition with your friends. Take a look at some of our driving video game recommendations for your next download.

Dirt Rally 2.0

For an incredible virtual off road experience, give Dirt Rally 2.0 a try. The hyper realistic racing experience offers you the chance to compete in a variety of timed stage events. The weather changes just as much as the terrain forcing you to change up your driving style if you want to win.

Need For Speed

There are a lot of Need for Speed games that you can buy, but we’d recommend either Hot Pursuit or Most Wanted. Race your way through very realistic worlds, avoiding the police and other traffic wherever possible to secure your victory.

F1 2020

Forget race cancellations, F1 2020 lets you play the championship that should have happened were it not for coronavirus restrictions. Create your race team and put your virtual driving skills to the test, increasing your driver rating to unlock new goodies.
