Bored of repeatedly travelling the usual lines with the same old passengers in Train Sim World 2, or had enough of the monotonous bus routes in Bus Simulator, and just fancy cruising around as a no-nonsense trucker instead? Then haul your backside into the nearest cab with On The Road – Truck Simulator, which has just arrived on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One and PS4.
Edit: 20/02/21 – Our full review of On The Road – Truck Simulator on Xbox is now live.
Whatever your trucking heart desires, On The Road – Truck Simulator aims to deliver in this realistic truck simulation. Get behind the wheel of licensed vehicles from Scania and MAN, which should behave like the genuine articles as they include automatic transmissions, retarder/intarder, and assistance systems – all the essentials. Then head out on the roads belonging to 16 different German cities, such as Berlin, Cologne, Hamburg, and Hannover; for that’s how you’re going to earn a living.
The idea is to be in charge of a trucking company that accepts and fulfils cargo orders, which could see you hauling loads that require anything from a mere semi-trailer to the rather huge Gigaliner setup. Plan the routes thoroughly for maximum efficiency, while remembering to factor in rest times, and the money will start rolling in. The more profit you garner, the more that can be reinvested into the business to acquire additional trucks and drivers.
Germany awaits your arrival, but if you wish to get trucking along the 6000km of motorways and head down the country roads, a toll must be paid via the Xbox Store or PlayStation Store. Only after paying £24.99 can you live out your dreams in On The Road – Truck Simulator and try to make a career of it. Leave us a comment below and tell us whether you’ll look to carve out a pathway in this line of work, or not!
