  • Hello players!

    I'm Andreia Mendes, Social Media & Community Manager at Saber Interactive Porto, the development studio behind Dakar Desert Rally.

    I will be here to help the community and give support to our game. If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to me.

    I'd also like to share with you all our most recent video that shows two legendary Dakar vehicles from the 80s: the DAF Truck Turbo-Twin and Ari Vatanen's Peugeot 405 Turbo 16, both playable as day one in-game unlocks when you purchase the Deluxe Edition of our game.

    Hope you enjoy it!

  • Hi, is vr supported?

  • Hello Andreia!

    I saw on the dakarthegame website, that the Fanatec GT DD Pro wheel for PS is not listed under the supported wheels. Do you plan on to supporting it as well?


  • So this will be like snowrunner from the same developer which means no support if you have for example fanatec wheel and heusinkveld pedals because the game supports only one game controller? If so, it so lazy from the developers... You will alienate thousands of possible players like that.

  • Odd that that list shows compatibility with a bunch of different Fanatec wheels, and not the actual wheelbases. 🤔

  • So is the csl dd supported with this game? Want to pre order but only if my set up is supported on xbox

  • That is the million dollar question… maybe Andreia can help us out here?

    Just tried the game with my DDpro 5nm and I have no force feedback what so ever, not even in compatibility mode. Shame on me finding out about this after the purchase.

    What a shame, hopefully this will be supported down the line. No reason in playing with my rig like this, absolutely atrocious.

    This is on PS5 with McLaren Rim.

  • Thank you for taking the bullet for all of us here! I’m really curious when and if we here something official here… I actually was looking forward to this game, but this kind of “support” is really worrying tbh.

  • More or less good news, I found this (picture) on the official website under wheel support. So GT DD Pro support should be coming - yesss! The question is only when?

  • Getting a refund as it should of launched with support.

    CSL DD steering axis isn't mapable. So can't use the wheel. The buttons work but not the axis.

    It's a joke that a game in 2022 on pc just doesn't let you map whatever axis you want. RBR has that function and that was 18 years ago. Crazy. Simply not good enough. Really amateur behaviour.

    Seems we were right to be suspicious about the lack of any reviews or proper gameplay content before release.


  • DD2 Steering do not work in the game Dakar Desert Rally.

    Handbrake is inverted.

    The others buttun work.
