Fans Port Driver 2, A PlayStation Exclusive, To The PC

While the first Driver—inspired by the original GTA titles, but released before the later 3D editions—was a multiplatform affair, its 2000 sequel was a PlayStation exclusive. Until now!

(Yes, I know it came out on Game Boy, but like many Game Boy ports it was basically a different game).

REDRIVER2, a project led by SoapyMan, has brought the game to the PC by...reverse-engineering the original’s code and then making a proper port. This means the game is now running from the ground up on a personal computer, not through an emulator.

The release is just in time for the game’s 20th anniversary, and it looks great!
