Saber Interactive today announced the release of Dakar Desert Rally, an open-world, off-road racing game based on the largest rally race on the planet. Dakar Desert Rally authentically captures the full scale of one of the world’s most challenging off-road events across over 20,000 square kilometers of diverse terrain with dynamic weather. Choose from some of the sport’s most renowned racing teams, or create your own and build up your garage with a long line of cars, bikes, trucks, quads and SSVs from the world’s top manufacturers. Forge your path to victory across various game modes, including an arcade-style Sport mode for quick pick-up-and-play action, Professional and Simulation modes for a true rally experience, and online multiplayer for up to four players for the ultimate competitive challenge.
- The Real Dakar Rally Experience: Discover more than 30 stages of authentic rally racing from the legendary Dakar Rally, fully captured with officially licensed vehicles, teams and pilots.
- Immense Open-World Action: Compete at high speeds across sprawling open-world environments that let you explore and forge your own path to victory. But be careful not to break down in the wild…
- Dynamic Seasons & Weather: Endure hazardous weather from all four seasons with a full day-night cycle. From blistering sandstorms and blazing desert sunlight to grueling rain, snow and mud, you’ll need to overcome both the elements and the competition to win.
- Single-Player & Online Multiplayer: Supercharge your single-player career with a variety of hardcore and arcade game modes, and compete in online multiplayer for up to four players.
- Create Your Own Rally Events: Make and share your own intensely challenging race events and stages with the world with Dakar Desert Rally’s custom roadbook editor (available in a free post-launch update).
Soon after launch, the free “Saudi Arabia Extended Map” DLC will be released, letting dedicated simulation players replicate the 2020-2022 Dakar Rally events for a true challenge once they reach later levels. From arid deserts to exotic nature and mountainous terrain, players can experience all the regions of Saudi Arabia while passing ancestral monuments and racing their way to the top.
Developed by Saber Porto, Dakar Desert Rally is out now on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC via Steam for $39.99. The game is also coming later this year to the Epic Games Store.
