One of the most popular driving sub-genres on PC now has a console analogue with Truck Driver, now available on both PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
It’s a little surprising that it’s only now, in the tail end of 2019, that a long-haul simulator is available on consoles. Truck Driver follows in the footsteps of another niche PC driving title making that move, with Wreckfest smashing its way onto PS4 and XB1 just last month.
Developer SOEDESCO has released a launch trailer to give players a taste of that sweet, sweet 18-wheeler action:
Here’s what we already knew about Truck Driver. Players will inherit a big rig from their uncle, and progress through a single-player story to make him proud. Along the way they’ll meet characters that task them with various challenges, like moving an ancient marble statue. Judging by the short section in the above video about the quote-unquote bananas, not every person will be the most upstanding of individuals…
SOEDESCO has also promised extensive customization. This will extend not only to the driver avatar, but also the trucks, with options for different paints, grilles, fenders and more.
The reveal trailer also shows off the open world progress SOEDESCO hinted at this past summer. As players complete missions, businesses expand and thrive, changing the landscape.
