Yeah yeah, we know we’re only just in the opening stages of 2021, but if you’re looking to gaze well into the future you’ll be glad to know that Ultimate Games have got your back, with news that the rather unique, slightly disturbing, Smuggler Simulator is coming to Xbox, Playstation, Switch and PC.

In development by those at the Polish studio of 3T Games, with publishing rights handled by Ultimate Games – they also behind the likes of Ultimate Summer and Farm Mechanic Simulator – Smuggler Simulator for Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S will allow you the chance to make a career for yourself in the extremely dangerous profession of smuggling. 

Due to launch on Xbox in 2023, Smuggler Simulator will attempt to bring a dose of humour to the situation as you work through procedurally generated locations and missions, working your creative angle in the hope that you can move various goods across borders. 

Also confirmed for PC, PS4, PS5 and Nintendo Switch, the key to success here will be found in the cunning and creative approach you take to challenges, all as you transfer goods and other commodities while remaining unnoticed. With an extensive crafting system in play, as well as the need to maintain and upgrade tools of the trade, how you go about taking on these smuggling challenges will depend on your own imagination. 

According to the creators, individual tasks can be performed in different ways, and players’ creativity will play a vital role. For example, they will be able to use traditional smuggling tricks or decide to go for a solution taken straight out of Jackass. Smuggler Simulator will also offer very diverse locations in different parts of the world and, thanks to the procedural generation system, each gameplay session will prove unique.
