Last November, the combined sales of SnowRunner’s off-road simulator on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One reached 1.5 million copies. But this is not the limit – as reported by the publisher Focus Home Interactive and the studio Saber Interactive, the simulator of off-road driving and extreme cargo transportation will appear on Nintendo Switch on May 18.
As the developers promise, realistic physics, real car models and tons of road mud and snow will be transferred to the portable-stationary system. However, the graphics, judging by the screenshots provided, will be noticeably simplified. But all the possibilities will remain: players will be able to drive faithfully recreated cars of Ford, Chevrolet, Freightliner and other automakers outside the home, paving the way in the open world.
SnowRunner allows you to challenge the untamed wilderness, dealing with mud, mudflows, snow and frozen lakes, as well as completing dangerous missions. Players will have to expand and customize their fleet with a variety of improvements and additional equipment, including a snorkel to overcome rough rivers and a chain on tires to deal with snow.
There are 40 off-road vehicles available in SnowRunner. The exploration of harsh routes takes place in three new regions (Alaska, Michigan and Taimyr) and in 11 open locations, and in terms of the total area of landscapes, this game surpasses the previous simulator from the same developers – MudRunner.
Along the way, you need to conduct reconnaissance of the terrain from watchtowers, plan a route, improve the engine, suspension and tires on SUVs. To complete the task, you will have to break through the swampy lowlands to the high snowy peaks.
At the same time, you can go on an expedition with two or three friends to complete a wide range of new tasks and challenges – from delivering goods and rescuing stuck cars to restoring infrastructure and laying new roads.
