    DAKAR 18 in game screenshot.jpg
    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!

    Not true, blur screenshots are the worst for observing graphics.

    But that one is close to that... I look at some stuff, and I am not sure what I am looking at.

    what's this supposed to mean?:unsure:
    what it can show to us? that they are afraid of showing us some informative in-game screenshot so they decide to show us the most uninformative scene? ok, they are the devs and they like to keep their project secret to the release date,it's their right! but a sunset screenshot ! it could be nice if the game was a walking/sightseeing simulator :geek:
    after reading the title i thought cool i'll see some in-game screenshots containing/showing cars [in action! not at something like a showroom] and roads's graphic quality...
    not showing a sunset screenshot to us as a in-game screenshot of a "racing game" would be the best strategy ,it's like trolling, i was not optimistic about it , and now i have more doubts about its real quality:D

    P.s i'm not so serious:p and i'll buy it anyway , i like to support every devs who make racing games or sims

    Setting sun and stars in the sky at the same time...they're obviously going for the realism factor ;)

    Paul, I'd like to know if there will be a demo for us or at least for RD and others to give us some idea what the physics and graphics will be like?

    Also are they developing this as a sim, an arcade or some of both?

    If we take in count the way this game have been showed to the community (i mean by the developers), this going to be a total bull$hit of game, lot of lies around

    Honestly I expect it to look on-par with Milestone's latest games. Maybe a little worse. They're both using Unreal, but Milestone has more experience. So those CGI trailers and renderings are absolutely going to be bullshots, could've seen that coming a mile away. But it's still possible that the game will look fine.

    I'm at the point where I wouldn't buy this game based on their stupid pre-release trickery.
