The open world of 20,000 square kilometres is built on the solid Unreal 4 game engine, meaning a good standard of graphics is matched to an environment so big it's required some technical shuffling to fit it onto a PlayStation 4 disc. That work pays off the moment you climb your first blind-drop dune and creep up to the peak and see swathes of the expansive land including Peru, Bolivia and Argentina's stages under a baking sun. It's genuinely one of the best sights in motorsport video gaming.


  • Pilots are real, not only the hands/heads. Full body. (in regards to real life)

  • They are scanning and using pictures of all of the pilots, so their faces will be in the game

  • Creating your own is not possible, you can only choose an existing character.


  • Open world, more than around 20.000km2

  • Different kind of weathers/climates

  • Because they are going from Peru to Bolivia to Argentina. All of the countries are scanned, they have collected pictures ( high resolution, 4k is what he said.) which are projected on the 3d map using filters(?). “Exactly the 3d replication of those. “

  • Because these locations have different climates they will have different dynamic weather.

  • One of Open worlds biggest

  • 14 stages

  • Each taking 1 -2 hours depending on your skill (navigating and driving).

  • the game will autosave at each waypoint and you can always return to that.

There are number of different vehicle types in the game. You can race in trucks, 4x4s, cars, quads, and bikes, with each vehicle fundamentally changing how you approach a course. For instance, trucks are obviously heavier and more cumbersome to manoeuvre through some of the obstacles, so it’s often wise to deviate from your roadmap and try to find an alternative route around steeper dunes or risk ruining your vehicle or getting stuck.
Meanwhile, bikes are a lot more fragile, flightier and will have a hard time in water, as well as throw you off if you hit an obstacle at a high enough speed.
This variety gives a lot of replayability to the individual stages and heightens the tension of certain scenarios depending on what you choose to race with. To give an example, getting out of soft sand in a car might be a much easier experience than in a truck where it will naturally sink further in due to its weight.
