The Dakar Desert Rally videogame is now available for popular gaming platforms. The game has 30 stages of rally racing derived from the 2020 and 2021 Dakar Rally races with officially licensed vehicles, teams and pilots across multiplayer and single-player modes.
Players navigate a full day-night cycle through sandstorms, blazing desert sunlight and grueling rain and snow. And, in true Dakar fashion, players can tow and rescue a competitor out of a jam for extra repair points, and, hopefully, have the favor returned down the road.
