astragon Entertainment GmbH and the developers of
stillalive studios are celebrating the release of Bus Simulator 18 today. The
gripping bus simulation game for PC is now available in retail and via download
in digital stores. Bus drivers who would like to try their luck with creating
their own bus models, new maps, cities and other equipment will be happy to see
the simultaneous release of the Bus Simulator 18: Modding Kit, which will be
available free of charge for owners of the main game at the Steam Workshop!
In Bus Simulator 18 players will have the unique opportunity to create their
very own bus company either solo in single player mode or together with up to
three friends in multiplayer mode and lead it to success in the fictional
European city of Seaside Valley. During the course of the game they will be able
to access and drive eight officially licensed and lovingly recreated bus models
by the worldwide renowned makers Mercedes-Benz, MAN, IVECO BUS and Setra.
In the course of the game driving their own buses will not be the only important
task for bus enthusiasts, they will also manage their aspiring bus company,
create new bus lines, hire new drivers and complete entertaining missions to
gain access to more and more city districts and buses.
Thanks to the new progression system as well as a wide range of special events
and features the game will offer long-term entertainment even for players after
they have successfully unlocked all buses and city districts, as this system
will enable them to focus on the further advancement of their bus company.
Creative bus drivers will also be happy to hear of the release of the Bus
Simulator 18: Modding Kit. The Unreal® Engine 4 based modding kit will give them
the opportunity to create not only their own buses, decals, adverts and skins
but also completely new maps and cities. The finished mods can then be included
in the Steam Workshop, where other players will be able to download and add them
to their own game.
Bus Simulator 18 for PC is now available at a price of 29.99 Euro, 34.99 USD,
26.99 GBP in retail and digital stores. On SteamTM there is a special launch
offer for at least the release week including a 10% discount as well as a bonus
