Focus Home Interactive’s surprise hit simulation MudRunner is getting a chilly sequel in the shape of SnowRunner. As you may have guessed from the name the game is swapping swampy mud flats for snow drifts and icicles, check out the reveal trailer.
Here’s a little more on the game:
Brave chilling maps, vehicles, terrain and challenges in the ultimate off-road sim’s official debut gameplay trailer!
SnowRunner, the highly anticipated follow-up to the surprise trucking sim hit MudRunner, developed by Saber Interactive and published by Focus Home Interactive, was fully revealed today at gamescom. Teased previously as MudRunner 2, SnowRunner is the ultimate off-road experience, made bigger and better with stunning visuals, advanced simulation physics, massive maps and vehicles, and the introduction of snowy terrain.
SnowRunner puts you behind the wheel of a huge roster of customizable heavy-duty vehicles from manufacturers like Pacific, Navistar and more in some of the world’s most untamed, unforgiving environments. There are more than 15 new sandbox maps to explore, some up to four times larger than those in the original MudRunner. Master extreme hazards like snowdrifts, ice, rivers and mud — each with their own unique challenges — to get your cargo safely to its destination as quickly as possible. Take on the elements alone or with friends online in fully-synchronous four-player co-op multiplayer!
We gave the previous game 7/10 in our review. “Spintires: MudRunner is utterly unique, and as a driving simulator of a niche field it is basically unparalleled,” commented Dom. “However, the difficulty level and lack of pace are likely going to make it a very niche game, while the camera is an extra challenge in itself. Still, there’s grit, determination, freedom and reward to be found here for those ready to wade in.”
SnowRunner will be available in 2020 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC through the Epic Games store.
