Saber Interactive has finally slapped a release date on Dakar Desert Rally, as the racing title will be out on PC and consoles in early October. The game has been put up for pre-order as you can snag the normal version for $40, or you can get the Deluxe Edition for $60. The latter includes the full base game plus the Season Pass, which comes with the DAF Truck Turbo-Twin and the Peugeot 405 Turbo 16 as Day One vehicle unlocks. You'll also get access to five upcoming DLC packs they have planned that will add a new map, new vehicles, and two new rally events. If you pre-order either version, you'll get the exclusive Audi RS Q e-tron, which was the first electric vehicle to win a desert rally.
