After last week’s announcement-of-an-announcement, SOEDESCO has revealed the release date of Truck Driver. Long-haul hopefuls on consoles will get their chance behind the big rigs on September 19.
PS4 and XB1 players have so far missed out on the rather popular sub-genre of trucking sims. Truck Driver will change that, providing players with a series of missions for their 18-wheelers. Check out the release date trailer below:
As the trailer shows, players won’t just be hauling a boring old rectangle. An ancient marble statue, a bunch of lumber, and even a boat show up.
SOEDESCO has also unveiled the story for the single-player portion of the game. It’s pretty simple really: you inherit your uncle’s truck, and you’re aiming to make him proud. Fair enough.
Curiously, the press release makes mention of the vast open world progressing alongside the player. It isn’t clear what developer Triangle Studios has in store, though the trailer does feature a day/night cycle.
When it launches this autumn, Truck Driver will feature driver and rig customization. Players will also earn XP via their missions, which they can then spend on a skill tree.
Truck Driver pulls into its final stop on PS4 and XB1 on September 19.
