Of course, the main focus here is SnowRunner Season 6. After four successful post-launch expansions, there’s even more content to come during Year 2.

SnowRunner Season 6 – Haul & Hustle – includes two new maps as truckers brave the chilly forests of Maine. Players are also invited to master two new vehicles including the Aramastu Forwarder and Tayga 6455B, both of which will help you in setting up a base and make runs across Maine’s harsh terrain. This new content is available now on PC, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch, and arrives on PS4 tomorrow.

In our SnowRunner review, we scored the genre-defining sequel an almost perfect 9/10:

“SnowRunner is a game thoroughly, single-mindedly, in love with the open road. It just happens that it’s the kind of love that’s bred by getting that road so thoroughly under your nails, you occasionally have to wonder whether it’s actually hate. Care, attention and time will show that SnowRunner is a passion project worth putting the extra mile in for.”
