Ready for a new kind of rally experience? Unlike the harshness of the likes in DiRT Rally, Funselektor Labs seem to have crafted a more accessible game with art of rally.
With a top-down viewing so you know what's coming and easy controls, you get to dive right in and just have fun right away. art of rally is a stylized experience inspired by the golden era of rally from the creator of Absolute Drift and going by the demo, there's a lot to look forward to.
Their short release date trailer is below:
At release it's going to be crammed full of playable content too as this is a proper release with 60 different stages from Finland to Sardinia, Norway, Japan and Germany. There's 50+ cars available, although not officially licensed since it's a small indie game, you generally know what each is if you've followed rally a little. There's plenty of vintage on display ranging from the 60’s to the 80’s, Group B, Group S and Group A.
While it's a single-player game, it's still going to be a little competitive thanks to the leaderboards with daily and weekly challenges too.
For some footage that's a bit longer, they also showed off another new video a day ago with the Group 2 selection of vehicles you can expect to see in game:
Something I also appreciate is the Photo Mode. If there's a particular car or track you really love, it will enable you to stop everything and get some seriously cool shots to show off.
