Funselektor Labs has released a new teaser image of a new location coming to their fun racing title art of rally this year.
The one-man development team – Canada-based Dune Casu – released an atmospheric image showing the hyena (art of rally’s interpretation of the Nissan 240RS Group B rallying machine) in action on a muddy stage – with roadside palm trees evoking memories of the World Rally Championship’s (WRC) visits to Indonesia in 1996 and 1997.
However, the WRC also visited the Ivory Coast a number on a number of occasions through the 70s to the 90s, sharing similar characteristics to Rally Indonesia. Both rallies were known for their car-breaking nature – the 1972 edition of the Ivorian rally ended with no finishers.
Ivory Coast or Indonesia, either way we’ll be guaranteed mud, water and a big challenge from the new location.
In a soon to be released interview for a new season of the Traxion.GG podcast, Casu stated: “There’s new content planned [for art of rally]. It will be tropical, a brand-new location with six stages and freeroam – we will be putting out some hints eventually.”
With the hint duly revealed, we’re looking forward to getting to grips with the new stages, and if they match the quality and attention to detail of last year’s Kenya update, we’re sure to be in for a treat. We will keep you updated when a release date is announced.
The good news is the update will be eminently playable on the Steam Deck version of art of rally, after it gained full Steam Deck Verified status last month.
