Dakar 18 first DLC pays tribute to series

Bringing the Desafío Ruta 40 Rally to fans of the series.

Bigmoon Entertainment, alongside publisher Deep Silver, are happy to announce the upcoming DLC for Dakar 18, titled Desafío Ruta 40 Rally. The DLC will be free for all owners of Dakar 18 for a limited amount of time when it launches later in the year. Apart of the world-famous “Dakar Series”, the infamous race includes a number of cross-country rallies and is the first event of this to be added to the game. The original race took place between August 27th and 31st in Argentina and as with the main game, Bigmoon Entertainment focused all their efforts on simulating the challenge to make it as realistic as possible.

Paulo J. Gomes, CEO over at Bigmoon Entertainment, recently had this to say about the upcoming release of the DLC and how they want to honour all the competitors who face the challenges of the Dakar Rallies each year.

“Not only do we want to offer more content to our fans and fans of the Dakar franchise, but we also want to take this chance to honor all competitors facing the multiple harsh challenges of the Dakar Rallies every year, in particular to the heroes who didn’t have the chance to reach the finish line.”

No release date has been confirmed for the DLC as of yet, but hopefully we will get more information surrounding that shortly.
