Virtual trucking can be a very relaxing experience. The prospect of hauling cargo through the beautiful Italian countryside is something many gamers are looking forward to in Euro Truck Simulator 2’s upcoming Bella Italia DLC. But, it doesn’t have to be all calm, clean, and straight forward. In comes Spintires: Mudrunner. While just as realistic, most of your trucking will be done in the extremely challenging and harsh conditions of the Siberian Tundra.
Face the Elements
While Spintires: Mudrunner is still a few weeks away from release, developers Saber Interactive have released a new gameplay trailer. In it we get a glimpse of the challenging environments that await. From driving a small 4×4 down steep slopes, to dragging cargo through deep pits of mud, this game is everything that trucking on asphalt is not.
With near-photorealistic graphics and incredible physics simulation, Spintires: MudRunner puts you in the driver’s seat of powerful off-road vehicles and challenges you to face extreme sandbox environments with only a map, a compass, and your driving skills to survive.
Through numerous missions and challenges, off-road vehicle fans will enjoy traversing mud, braving rivers with strong currents, and climbing perilous peaks aboard their 4x4s, trucks, and sturdy logistic vehicles designed to withstand the most extreme conditions. Dedicated players and driving enthusiasts will appreciate the hyper-realistic driving sensations thanks to an advanced physics engine, including fuel simulation, a differential transmission system, soft-tire simulation, as well as realistic interactions between vegetation, mud, water, and your vehicle.
Perhaps most interesting is the ability to take on the environment as a group in an all new co-op mode.
Spintires: MudRunner releases October 31 on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. Spintires owners benefit from an exclusive 50 percent discount on Steam on top of the 10% discount on all pre-orders.
