Spintires: Mudrunner

Discussion in 'Console & PC Gaming' started by imported_rik19, Aug 20, 2017.

  1. It does look boring, but it is the perfect chill game. There are times I turn the playstation on because I want to play something, but flick through my games and I'm not in the mood for anything fast paced or where I need to concentrate, enter Spintires. It's worth buying in the sale, you wont know if you like it if you don't try it.

    There actually aren't that many gaming experiences I've had that are as gratifying as narrowly escaping a sticky situation in Mudrunner. It keeps you on your toes like you probably wouldn't expect from gameplay videos.

    Careless driving can easily screw you over.

    The lack of speed in this game would probably annoy me. :lol:

    Perhaps you should try it instead.

    Yes I should. Is there a demo?

    Don't think so. It's on Xbox game pass if you have Xbox.

    No Xbox. Only PC.

    Does Mudrunner have a replay?

    Ah that's a shame. I can only really echo what others have said and that the whole premise of the game is extremely entertaining and it's very easy to lose hours and hours playing without it ever feeling strenuous or dull. It's definitely a mainstay on my Xbox.

    I thought so, too. And then I played it.

    On Steam, every game is a demo if you play it for less than two hours over a period of like 5 days. Just buy it, play it, and if you don't like it request a refund.

    This game looks simple but it's EXTREMELY addictive. There were many times when I launched Spintires just for a short drive in the evening, but then "OK, just a little more" and "I'll just refuel my truck and leave", then looked at the clock and it was 3 a.m. already.

    After reading all those posts I felt like playing MudRunner again, so bought it for the 3rd time, but on PS4 now. (Had original SpinTires and MudRunner on pc for year, but sold a gaming pc some time ago). Also picked up AW dlc. It's going to be fun on a 55" TV this time! :dopey:

    Looking at youtube clips, Mudrunner's vehicles look so realistic and stunning. Every detail is working, like the drive shaft. Even how the chassis works is very beautiful to watch. The driver looks funny the way it moves in the cockpit.

    The environment is not that good though. Too much fog or pale colours.

    Yep, that game engine is old and limited, they use fog to hide the low draw distance. Hopefully MudRunner 2 is going to fix that by looking at first screenshots from MR2 compared to old pre-release screenshots of MR1.

    The vehicles are one of the most beautiful models I have ever seen in a video game. But I like old rat-looking beaten up rusted vehicles.

    UE4 engine with the same beautiful vehicles and I this game is superb.

    Had some fun trying to get the F150 up the waterfall rockface on The Bog last night. Kept failing, but the rollover physics never fail to amuse me and the V8 sounds fantastic.
     
  18. The graphics are a but flat, could do with a little more contrast. But the environment as a whole really captures that relaxing outdoor feel. The sunrise is nice too.

    Can't wait for this one! I really hope that those maps are truly vast.

    Is SnowRunner a separate title from MudRunner 2?

    It is MudRunner 2, that was the development title.

    I saw an International Harvester Scout (0:20). The vehicle list will be interesting to see. More compact 4x4s? :)

    Like @MXH said, I hope the maps are vast indeed. I'm also curious what they could have in store in terms of missions and gameplay. MudRunner was a great step forward in terms of compelling content for this sort of game.

    Excited, but I didn't realize it would be exclusively on the Epic Game Store. Which means...no Steam Workshop mods. :indiff:

    Epic Store? Guess I'm not buying it then :indiff:

    Although, maybe the store won't be trash by the time the game releases.

    They've confirmed that the game will support mods on PC at launch and they're hoping to have them on console post-launch too. I imagine they're building in their own workshop system.

    I see on consoles it will be 2021. That must mean the new generation of systems then, don't you guys think?

    I hadn't even noticed that, I think you might be right.

    Where is the information about consoles in 2021? I've only seen 2020 as date for epic store, ps4 and xone.

    Looks like Russian vehicles will be there again.
    I see a GAZ 69A at 0:18 and 0:27 (but the front grill is different, no license again).
    [​IMG]

    The 8-wheeler at 0:23 seems to be a GAZ 59037A, a civilian off-road vehicle based on the BTR-80, an amphibious APC.
