Truck Driver’s newest trailer has the air of a corny sitcom, which is just bolstered by the sim’s setup. You have inherited a truck out of your father, moved to a brand new city and now you have to use your trucking abilities to earn respect from a vibrant solid of characters. And likewise do some crimes, apparently.
Forging ties with the local people will contain a little bit of shady enterprise, in keeping with the trailer, together with smuggling “bananas” and eliminating a trailer to assist a man with a pile of debt. It is maybe not the healthiest solution to make mates, however there may also be loads of authorized gigs so that you can tackle.
Characters, like Sven, the horny lumberjack, will supply higher jobs as your relationship improves, and serving to out the locals additionally expands the city. Possibly it is simply because Sven’s chest cannot be contained by his shirt, however I am getting relationship sim vibes and I very a lot approve.
Truck sims often cater in the direction of gamers trying to chart their very own course or simply go for an aimless drive, however I at all times find yourself craving story, so this appears proper up my avenue. Whereas it is a bit extra story-driven, it is nonetheless an open world sandbox the place you may drive round at your leisure, selecting up jobs, customising your truck or forking out on a brand new trip.
Sadly, whereas Truck Driver is launching this month on Xbox One and PS4, we’ll have to attend till November 11 to play it on PC.
