Dakar Desert Rally announced for PC and consoles

Dakar Desert Rally

The world’s most difficult motorsport events are coming to consoles and they look incredible.

Saber Interactive, in collaboration with Saber Port, has announced one of the most complex driving simulation video game projects in recent years today. Dakar Desert Rally is a driving simulator game that simulates the speed, adventure, and thrill of the world’s longest and most difficult rally race, the Dakar Rally.

One of the best competitions in motorsports

When many people think of the ultimate test of racing, they think of Formula 1. When they think of one of the most intense, they think of WRC. When they think of one where all the races are extremely close, they think of NASCAR or Indy car. Although many people are unaware of it, the Dakar Rally combines all of these categories into a single race filled with shocks, risk, and a breathtaking landscape.

Dakar Desert Rally has all of the things you’d expect in each stage of the real-life event, including several open-world locations, realistic physics that make each stage a challenge, dynamic temperatures, and of course licensed vehicles, teams, and pilots from the 2020 and 2021 seasons.

A full-fledged simulation

Saber Port aims to transport the experience that pilots have had in the more than 30 stages of the Dakar Rally over the last two years, not only because they were scanned telemetrically for greater immersion, but also because the Dakar Desert Rally features all four seasons and a full day-night cycle. Whether confronted with blowing sandstorms, searing desert sunshine, arduous rain and snow, or thick muck, gamers must react to these occurrences exactly like the drivers do during the levels.
