Truck & Logistics Simulator: Steam release today
In Truck & Logistics Simulator, developed by Simula Games, the players get to fulfill the hands-off tasks of a logistics company: loading cargo trucks with a vast array of loading vehicles, from simple forklifts to wheel loaders; driving big and small transport vehicles to their destination on a realistic map and safely unloading the cargo again. More than 20 vehicle types are available for loading and transporting.
In addition to particularly challenging missions with fragile cargo, players can also expect jobs that must be completed in the shortest possible time. The goods are finally transported to the recipient, either alone or in a convoy with other players in multiplayer mode (cross-platform) – all of this in compliance with traffic regulations. If they ignore red lights and speed limits or deliver damaged goods, players can expect fewer experience points and a smaller mission reward.
“Together with Simula Games we have worked very hard for this special day: Fans of deep simulations now for the first time have the opportunity to experience the everyday work of a logistics company firsthand,” says Winfried Diekmann, Managing Director of Aerosoft, “Truck & Logistics Simulator represents a major milestone for us, as it is our first game that will also be available at retail as a boxed version for Nintendo Switch.”
Truck & Logistics Simulator was in development since 2014 and offers players a large open-world map (24 km²) with varied areas such as ports, highways and urban areas, but also off-road routes. A day and night cycle as well as changing weather conditions including snow, fog and rain affect the driving characteristics of the different transport vehicles and present players with further challenges.
