Sébastien Loeb Rally Evo Hits the Gravel on January 29th

Touted as the ultimate rally simulation with more cars, more km of track and more content than any other rally game, Sebastien Loeb Rally Evo will go head-to-head with the acclaimed DiRT Rally when released on the 29th of this month.

Pushed back from its original release window of October 2015 to allow for more development time, the game will feature more than 300 kilometers of track, over 50 cars from over 20 manufacturers, 15 game modes, and the ability to customize your car with different liveries, stickers, and plates.

Sebastien Loeb Rally Evo will be available for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

    I tested the demo on PS4, completely undriveable with T300RS, I will not buy it, just wait for CM rally on console.

      Are you joking? If you find this undriveable, you’re gonna smash your TV when you get Dirt Rally. Dirt Rally is ten times more difficult but not necessarily in a good way.

      If you want another Dirt 3, you’re out of luck. CM and Milestone are going for realism not simcade but Rally Evo is still very driveable, especially compared to Dirt Rally.

      I have a T300RS too and this game is great with it. I think you just need to practice. Keep in mind the San Remo rally is incredibly narrow and one of the toughest rallies in the game

      I think you should go in the Career option and select either the Toyota Celica or Abarth500 (I recommend Abarth for you first) you may have to tweak the settings a bit, especially all assists off and changing the pacenote timings etc, but once you get a hang of the Abarth in easy AI settings, slowly notch it up. For me too, it was too difficult at first with the Citroen but now I beat the medium AI on San Remo with the Citroen quite consistently, may be a mistake and I end up 2nd or 3rd, but I’m getting a good hang of it using the T300RS. I love the test drive function and how it is very nicely tied in / in the game.

      HAven’t played Dirt Rally yet, awaiting a demo or release on consoles, but for now, SLR-E looks promising (and indeed the best rally game as of right now for me)..

      As TomBrady mentioned, it does have a learning curve, but once you get a hang, you’ll love it..

    It might be good, but it look exactly like WRC4, that game I have on PS3. “A PS4 release that looks exactly like a PS3 game, that alarming!. You might assume a higher level, but I’m getting of the train here. Same stile also, they might call it WRC6, Sebastian Löeb Edition.

      In fairness, they remain a small studio without a big budget, mostly due to bad and often unfair press. Poor graphics didn’t really harm The Crew overall.

    2. TomBrady

      You need to get your eyes checked dude. When’s the last time you played a PS3 game? This game looks better than anything on PS3. Not every game can look like Driveclub dude

    3. Johnnypenso

      Oh DriveClub you devil!! They’ve set the bar for graphics so high on the PS4 I’m not sure even GTSport can measure up!

    I’d like to like this one, but after playing demo I’m still mixed felings.

    It looks decent but there are some terrible slow downs in demo when racing at night in cockpit cam, still ffb is ok, but nothing to talk about, on top it is “milestone” game and to be true they haven’t released any really great game but their bike franchise.WRC3 was good and fun, but still a tier or two beneath sim or games of that time (2013).For sure I’ll buy it when it is 30€ in a month or two after release, but 65€ or even 85€ for preorder nad season pass? Probably not.

    1. MeanElf

      I must say that back at the start, when Milestone brought out their first WRC game, I hated the demo too. Ended up getting the game later on though and really appreciating it (as well as the following three.)

    2. IBZ6L20VT

      I just think as you do. It’s not bad, but definitely not worth what they’re currently asking for it. I’ll buy it when the price drops, for the sake of variety and to try all that long mileage of stages.

    3. MeanElf

      And that is how studios remain small and under-funded.

      If you like a genre, surely supporting the developers who makes the kind of games you’d want to play might be a better idea than having no choice at all in a few years time. In a world where even the wealthy nations are now struggling, only the big game producers will survive if the small ones aren’t given the chance.

      @tom – PSN /PS4/t300…drivers view, one closest to the windshield (but it also happens in 3rd person/day … but it is less noticeable. Right after 1st U turn, road keeps going uphill until second U turn on top of a hill. I got that slow downs few turns before top and then 2nd and 3rd turn after U-turn on top and also some other turns after that,but not as much as on the uphill/top.Game slows down,frames are skipping and then game speeds up to catch up with whatever it wants to catch – physics?.It takes a second but it is annoying and not a sign of good optimization.In general something like XO version of pC is doing.One would expect at least locked 30fps and not something like variable 25-30.After all , It is rally game with one (1 !) car on the track and it can’t keep up > Milestone)))

    5. Magic Ayrton

      @ MeanElf – Yes because we are all going to spend our hard earned money funding devs that release games we don’t like.. If you game on PC – Dirt Rally owns this from a great height.

    6. MeanElf

      Did IQs drop recently? I already said ‘games you’d want to play’ – of course it’d be foolish to support a genre or game developer you don’t value…
