Ari Vatanen Joins DAKAR 18 as a Pre-Order Bonus

By Rebecca Smith, 28 days ago
The legendary Finnish drive Ari Vatanen won the Dakar rally four times between 1987 and 1991. The only reason he didn't win it the fifth time was because his car was stolen during the 1988 rally and he was disqualified. It only seems fitting that such a successful driver is included in a game representing the biggest off-road endurance event in the world. Developer Bigmoon Entertainment has confirmed that the driver will be included as a bonus for those pre-ordering DAKAR 18 before its release, or those who purchase the limited physical Day-One Edition.


As well as the driver, players will get to take control of his Peugeot 205 Turbo 16 that was the first car to take him to victory. If you wish to take on the role of the driver, make sure to get those pre-orders in before the game is released on September 11th.

We don't have them yet, but we'll publish a story as soon as we pick up the DAKAR 18 achievements.
