    DAKAR 18 Updated.jpg
    Bigmoon Studios have updated DAKAR 18 to now include world player rankings within the title.


    Having started off life in rather difficult circumstances, Bigmoon Studios have remained hard at work on DAKAR 18 as they look to bring the simulation up to a level that the no doubt loyal fanbase believes an event such as the DAKAR Rally deserves.

    Although certainly improved over the launch product, work does still remain for the young Portuguese studio to fully maximise the potential of DAKAR 18, and it appears that the studio are still hard at work on the project some months after the game first hit the paying public back on September 25th last year.

    Continuing the updates that have admittedly slowed down recently, Bigmoon have now added the ability for players to share their times with all the other competitors to compete worldwide for the best position in each class category: Cars, Bikes, Quads, Trucks and SxS.

    Alongside the inclusion of world rankings, other features of the new update include:

    New Features:
    • NEW: Added Online Rankings features in the game. When the player completes each stage, and has the online ranking registry active in the game Options, stage times will be registered and displayed to other players.
    • NEW: Added “ONLINE RANKING” to the Explore Menu. Player will be able to list a global ranking comparing the best time, per category and difficulty level.
    • NEW: Added the option “USE ONLINE RANKING” to participate in the online ranking chart.

    General Bugs fixed:
    • FIXED: Game now saves the progress after a Neutralization.
    • FIXED: Achievements with progressions are now saved to allow a progression after an interruption.
    • FIXED: Option to return to Menu when in Bivouac.
    • FIXED: Bike Roadbook is now working even if the player turns off the HUD in the options.
    • FIXED: Roadbook notes correctly updated even if RoadBook On/Off option is activated during a stage.
    • FIXED: AI penalties are now correctly calculated when player arrives last in a Stage.

    DAKAR 18 is available for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 now.

    Well, despite the flaws the game had, and that no one wants to buy an unfinished game (bought this Day One, because Dakar), the devs have been constantly updating and supporting the game. I hope that for a 2019 edition they will keep all the improvements they already have, plus new features (also, more classic content would be welcome).
    Let's see what the future have for this game.

    P.S.: Sorry if I messed some words guys, English isn't my mother language :unsure:

    Even more luck, it is actually priced 12,69€ on cdkeys.com (legit keys, they just sell keys from other countries).
