MudRunner Sequel Revealed At Gamescom
I had a lot of fun with MudRunner, chewing through terrain with a full load of whatever they asked me to deliver, but as a Canadian there was clearly something missing…copious amounts of snow.
Fortunately Saber Interactive and Focus Home Interactive saw that and addressed it in the sequel to MudRunner – SnowRunner. With maps up to four times larger than that in MudRunner, gamers can expect some truly hellacious terrain to conquer.
SnowRunner is expected to hit in 2020 on PC, PS4, and Xbox One. Here’s the press release:
FOCUS HOME INTERACTIVE AND SABER INTERACTIVE’S MUDRUNNER SEQUEL SNOWRUNNER FULLY REVEALED AT GAMESCOM
Brave chilling maps, vehicles, terrain and challenges in the ultimate off-road sim’s official debut gameplay trailer!
COLOGNE, Germany — Aug. 21, 2019 — SnowRunner, the highly anticipated follow-up to the surprise trucking sim hit MudRunner, developed by Saber Interactive and published by Focus Home Interactive, was fully revealed today at gamescom. Teased previously as MudRunner 2, SnowRunner is the ultimate off-road experience, made bigger and better with stunning visuals, advanced simulation physics, massive maps and vehicles, and the introduction of snowy terrain.
Get a first look at SnowRunner’s intense automotive action in its debut gameplay trailer:
SnowRunner puts you behind the wheel of a huge roster of customizable vehicles from heavy-duty manufacturers like Pacific, Navistar and more in some of the world’s most untamed, unforgiving environments. There are more than 15 new sandbox maps to explore, some up to four times larger than those in the original MudRunner. Master extreme hazards like snowdrifts, ice, rivers and mud — each with their own unique challenges — to get your cargo safely to its destination as quickly as possible. Take on the elements alone or with friends online in fully-synchronous four-player co-op multiplayer!
SnowRunner is expected to launch in 2020 on PlayStation®4, Xbox One, and Windows PC through the Epic Games store.
