Dakar 18

Dakar 18 will launch for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on September 11, publisher Deep Silver and developer Bigmoon Entertainment announced.

Here is an overview of the game, via Deep Silver:

Based on the world famous annual rally raid organized by Amaury Sport Organisation (A.S.O.) in South America, Dakar 18 is a realistic simulation of the biggest cross-country rally in the world and features a variety of official vehicles and one of the biggest open worlds ever created. Players will have to use the real road books – provided by the pilots to the development team – to find the way across each of the 14 stages across Peru, Bolivia and Argentina.

Players will compete in fierce online multiplayer races as well as playing offline to harness and grow navigation and racing skills. Dakar 18 is focused on the realism and promises stunning visuals, which faithfully represent many of the official vehicles and pilots for each of the five racing categories (Cars,Bikes, Trucks, Quads and SxS) of the Dakar Rally 2018. In addition, the game will feature a single player, online and split screen multiplayer experience.
