Dakar released in 2018 was a much sought after title for an epic racing event which undoubtedly deserves more recognition among both sports and motor racing fans alike. Dakar 2018 had some good ideas and lofty ambitions, but ultimately wasn’t in a place to meet the expectations of gamers. With wonky physics, complex map system, irritating co-driver and numerous bugs. Dakar was an idea, yet the final execution left a lot to be desired, eventually scoring a lowly 4/10 in our review. A sequel might have been expected a year or two later, but all silence on the development front. Had the project been canned? No idea till now, and good news! Dakar Desert Rally has finally been announced and will be releasing in 2022.
The title has a new approach , rather than Dakar 2021 or Dakar 2, Dakar Desert Rally is already setting itself apart. Not a yearly franchise but instead a full reboot, hopefully taking on board both the elements players enjoyed from the 2018 version and combining the positive feedback into making this game all it has the potential to be. Let’s take a look at the trailer:
S, we can say too much, the trailer appears pre-rendered and without actual gameplay we can assess an potential improvements that have been made. However it is epic in approach, bringing new more colourful vibes an that action gaming feel. More news when we have it.
