Is this game any good for someone not into navigation?
If you are willing to learn it than definitely! Maybe watch a couple of videos first (rl and game) to see if you'd like to take it a step further yourself 😁


@Scaff : how is your adventure getting along? As soon as you hit level 26 and 27 the whole Dakar events open up and maybe sooner in free run . Looking forward to your further impression, that is if you are enjoying yourself and want to do it of course 😊

Ok baffled by the update, I’ve got the extended map DLC installed but don’t see the new events in Sport and/or Professional modes.

What am I missing this time..?

I don't see them either, maybe you have to unlock them or something

There are 2 updates! One is a patch and the other one is an update for the Saudi map. Both about 3.5 GB in size
According to my log, the map downloaded on 11/17, and the 1.05 patch last night.

Anyone have a screen shot what the additional events look like? They could be in plain sight and I’m just missing them.

You have the old version of the map. The latest version should show 29/11. I'll grab a screenshot euh video from the pro events.

You have the old version of the map. The latest version should show 29/11. I'll grab a screenshot euh video from the pro events.


Thanks, I clearly don’t have that map/events even though my system says the map was downloaded.

I’ll reach out to Saber support who have been helpful but not entirely successful. Still never got access to the Audi e-Tron for preordering.

Would it help if you delete the map extension and download it again?

For what it’s worth; I can confirm the DLC map is downloaded because I’m at level 27 and have access to the ‘20, ‘21, and ‘22 full Dakar rally events in Simulation mode. Fine.

Still doesn’t explain why the new Sport and Pro events from @doblocruiser YT video and post above are missing.

Strange.

You are on PS4 aren't you? Even if you have the map, there should have been an update. I'll see if I can figure out which version of the Saudi map I am running. Will report back later.

@cjr3559 map version 1.000.1

I bought the game with the black friday deal and just started playing. I did the first few events in sport mode and used the free electric audi and the vehicles from the spins after the events. But i noticed there is a throphy where you need to spend more than 100,000 Dakar points. Can you just spend the points on any car you like or is it better to save them?

Overal I like the game, it gives a bit of motorstorm feel with the sport events. The graphics are nice and after I changed some of the controller sensitivity settings most of the 4 wheeled vehicles drive fine. With the bikes it depends on the type of terrain so i think i need to adjust my driving for that.
