Dakar Desert Rally is out in just over one week on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and PC, with a release date set for 4 October.
With WRC Generations sliding onto PC and consoles a week later on 13 October, October is going to be a great month for off-road racing game fans.
