For those with a ButtKicker, the haptic feedback system for sim racing, now there’s the option of enhanced native support for four popular sim racing titles.
While the ButtKicker has always worked with the following titles, a new update for the associated HaptiConnect software allows for the use of dedicated plugins:
- Automobilista 2
- Project CARS 2
- RaceRoom Racing Experience
- rFactor 2
If you use the HaptiConnect Standard system, which costs $29.99 to start with, each game plugin is available for $4.99 each. If you have HaptiConnect Ultimate – which costs $59.99 – then you now have access to these additional haptic feedback models for no additional charge.
HaptiConnect Standard includes iRacing, Assetto Corsa, Assetto Corsa Competizione, DiRT Rally 2.0, F1 2021 and F1 22 (from August) are included. HaptiConnect Ultimate includes these plus the four new additions and any future titles.
ButtKicker recently launched two new models, the PLUS and PRO. The PRO is aimed at hardcore sim racing enthusiasts, while the PLUS caters for those using gaming chairs or small-scale rigs or cockpits.
While these four new plugins became available on 12th July 2022, a fifth is due ‘soon’ when F1 22 is supported from next month. Further updates are scheduled for ‘the coming months.’
