Players may pick from five vehicle categories, namely car, motorcycle, quad, truck, and SxS, and play alone offline or race with up to 7 others in fierce multiplayer competitions. A full roster of authentic teams, vehicles, and pilots is included, with one rally legend available as a pre-order bonus.

Dakar 18 is scheduled to launch September 25, 2018 on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
