Porsche 924 GTS Rallye and Porsche 959 Rallye are coming to Gravel
Milestone, one of the leading and longest established racing game developers in the world, is proud to announce more officially licensed Porsche cars in Gravel, Milestone’s latest off-road adventure.
With the pre-order on digital stores and selected retailers starting in the upcoming weeks, players will be given the exclusive opportunity to get the DLC Porsche Rallye Pack for free, which includes the Porsche 924 GTS Rallye, two official liveries taken from the 1981 and 1982 official events, the Porsche 959 Rallye and the 1986 official livery. The Porsche Rallye Pack aims to give all Porsche enthusiasts the adrenaline of driving in the wildest locations around the world with their favorite Porsche lightning: the 924 GTS and the 959 Rallye, in fact, will join the 911 RSR Rallye and the Cayenne Transsyberia, already available in the game. The two cars included in the DLC not only are among the most recognized sport cars of all times, but have also made their mark in the world of Rally racing, being driven by Rallye’s legendary pilots during legendary races around the world.
Porsche 924 GTS made history in 1981, when legendary rallye driver Walter Röhrl made a strong appearance at the German Rallye Championship with a Porsche 924 GTS, gaining a second place in the very first race with this car.
Porsche 959, produced in 1986, was the most technologically advanced sports car of its times. To put the technology demonstrator through its paces, it was entered in the toughest rally in the world: the Paris-Dakar, the famous Rallye race which crosses Africa’s deserts and savannahs for 13,800 kilometers. The all-wheel-drive 959 coped effortlessly with the wide-ranging conditions, gaining two thirds of the podium with René Metge and Dominique Lemoyne arriving at first position, followed by Jacky Ickx and Claude Brasseur in the second one. A third 959, only really intended as a support vehicle, finished the race in sixth place.
Celebrating off-road racing by bringing back the pure arcade genre, Gravel promises even more fun with exclusive additional content: the DLC Porsche Rallye Pack will be part of Gravel’s Season Pass, set to bring players to exotic locations, racing with the most exciting vehicles ever created. Gravel will be released on February 27th 2018 on PS4, Xbox One and PC/STEAM.
