Publisher: Milestone S.r.l, Square Enix Co.

Release Date: 27/02/2018

We're just weeks away from GRAVEL's pre-orders opening ahead of its release on February 27 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC (with a Switch version to follow), and developer Milestone has now revealed the pre-order goodies you can expect for the off-road arcade racer.

Players who pre-order GRAVEL will get access to the Porsche Rallye Pack DLC for free, which includes the Porsche 924 GTS Rallye with two official liveries taken from the 1981 and 1982 official events, and the Porsche 959 Rallye with the 1986 official livery. You can take a look at the pre-order content in the video teaser below.

The 924 GTS and the 959 Rallye will join the 911 RSR Rallye and the Cayenne Transsyberia, already available in the game for a total tally of four Porsche models.

If you are on the fence about pre-ordering GRAVEL, you can still gain access to the Porsche 924 GTS and 959 Rallye as they will be part of Gravel’s Season Pass, presumably, the pack will also be made available separately too.

For more info on the two Porsches from the Porsche Rallye Pack DLC for GRAVEL see the notes provided by the developer below.

 


Porsche 924 GTS made history in 1981, when legendary rallye driver Walter Röhrl made a strong appearance at the German Rallye Championship with a Porsche 924 GTS, gaining a second place in the very first race with this car.

Porsche 959, produced in 1986, was the most technologically advanced sports car of its times. To put the technology demonstrator through its paces, it was entered in the toughest rally in the world: the Paris-Dakar, the famous Rallye race which crosses Africa’s deserts and savannahs for 13,800 kilometers. The all-wheel-drive 959 coped effortlessly with the wide-ranging conditions, gaining two-thirds of the podium with René Metge and Dominique Lemoyne arriving at first position, followed by Jacky Ickx and Claude Brasseur in the second one. A third 959, only really intended as a support vehicle, finished the race in sixth place.
