Nice trailer, but some actual gameplay would be nice. I'll definitely play if it's good, but first I still need to buy that Baja game that got released on the PS4 not long ago. :)

This is what I wanted since I heard about Dakar and the Dakar Game on Xbox in 2003!

I will cross my fingers this is decent at least.

Finally a Dakar game that sounds like it is catching the real atmosphere of Dakar (open world, car damage, thrilling navigation). Remember I brought Dakar for PS2 but it was a huge letdown with only a few short stages of racing and that was is. Have not touched the series since then.

This announcement came out of nowhere. Dakar is really interesting rally for a game, hoping it will be decent. I enjoyed driving in FUEL's big open world, and this is even bigger map.
By the way, FUEL was first going to be more realistic dakar style game before they changed it to post-apocalyptic themed.

I'm buying this day one.

I absolutely love the Dakar Rally and its rich history. The car maintenance bit is what I'm all about. I wish racing games included maintenance of vehicles in their racing campaigns.

I just hope that the map is not a square like Fuel, but something thinner (but still wide, of course) and longer.
Definitely. That would make point-to-point racing a lot more fun in the sense that it would give better direction.

I seriously cannot wait for this. If anyone is interested, I will be making a club for this on Xbox when it releases.

I guess I may be too biaised against the Dakar, the first thing I thought was : "at least in the game you can't run over natives pedestrians".
But hey, maybe the game will be good, we'll see.

The world on those promo pics looks great, this could very well be Forza Horizon 4 in South America. Hopefully the actual gameplay material will be as good. :)

I've wanted a massive off road game since fuel! hopefully the developer improved as the previous games were underwhelming.
Yeah hoping this scratches that Fuel itch, if the can nail the free roam and get decent physics should be fun at least.

lighting looks really good. sadly i don't have much faith in the game actually being very fun...at least based on previous games of the sport. but i'd love for it to turn out great.

I wonder if it has both condensed race modes so you can get the overall experience in one sitting as well as a fully real race mode that you can actually save in parts of it (maybe requiring you to stop and lose time like if the driver had to take a leak, lol) and continue later. Either way it looks very promising going by these media tidbits so hopefully it's very good and very fun :o)

Great natural looking colors there, if it wasn't for the weird animation it could have looked real (at least in that low quality/res clip, more flaws when actually played probably).

Really looking forward to seeing how this pans out, I am wondering how they are going to present "jeopardy" in this game, I could end up really boring, just you and a huge empty world (like FUEL), but if they can manage to get the brutal nature of the race, mechanical, repairs, management etc, it could be good.
