Dakar 18 is a racing video game developed by Bigmoon Entertainment and published by Deep Silver for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Microsoft Windows based on the most famous annual rally organised by the Amaury Sport Organisation.

The Dakar Rally is a rally raid endurance race that's regarded as one of the most arduous and demanding events on the motorsports calendar. Running for the 40th time in 2018, this year's edition has a route of 9000 km, is also the 10th Dakar Rally to participate in South America since the series' relocation from Europe and Africa in 2009.


Dakar 18 is a racing game set in an open world environment. It features both offline and online single-player and multiplayer modes. The world of the game is over 5,791 square miles (15,000 km²) in size, which is roughly the size of the U.S. state of Connecticut (or the Moquegua Region of Peru), and completely explorable.[4] Five categories of vehicles will be available, including cars, trucks, motorcycles, quads and UTVs. Players also have the option to exit their vehicle and explore the world by foot.
