We've been waiting a while and now it's here, the very first in game screenshot from the upcoming DAKAR 18 game! Taken during sunset conditions out on the stages between Pisco and Marcona in Peru, this first WIP screenshot of DAKAR 18 comes as something of a surprise considering the developers wished to hold back in game footage until at least March, and goes some way to assuring fans that it appears the new DAKAR Rally title will be nothing if not a looker when it releases later this year. We at RaceDepartment are curious to see what new developers Blue Moon Studios have in store for DAKAR 18, and we think the best way to find out what the plans are is simple - ask! So with that in mind, over the next day or two I'll be in touch with the devs to pose a bunch of questions about the future for this title and development team. If you want us to ask anything on your behalf, be sure to leave your questions in the comments to this article, or in the comments HERE. Be quick, I'll be talking to them very, very soon..! DAKAR 18 is scheduled to release 2018 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC. To keep in touch with all the latest news from this simulation, and to share the excitement with your fellow fans of the great event, be sure to check out the brand new Dakar 18 sub forum right here at RaceDepartment.com!
