OverviewOverview

Art of Rally is a racing game that focuses on stylised off road motion from the creator of Absolute Drift. Slide through the hand-crafted stages set in Finland, Japan and Spain with varying weather and time of day.

It's a combination of instinct and memory that Lonely Mountains Downhill delivered so well. The environment and rendering of trees and sunsets impact what you can see of upcoming hazards. It looks exquisite, but it is the motion of the car and sense of skill needed from the driver that really works well.

You progress through 60 stages (from Finland to Sardinia, Norway, Japan and Germany) of the golden years of rallying in Career Mode with over 50 iconic cars from the 60s, 70s, 80s, Group B, Group S & Group A. You repair your vehicle in-between stages to enhance performance. Or you can simply head into the leaderboards for daily and weekly challenges.

The handling model has been overhauled from that in Absolute Drift and is much more predictable and less punishing.

From beginner-friendly options to driving modes that’ll challenge the most expert drivers, all players can tackle the races using their favourite rally driving tricks: Scandinavian flick, counter steering, left foot braking, handbrake turns.
