You wait a while for some good work simulators, and a couple arrive all at once. Hot on the heels of the very likeable Train Sim World, Astrogen has announced that Bus Simulator will make a stop on the PlayStation 4 next year. The popular public transport experience will be playable with a DualShock 4 for the first time ever at Gamescom 2018 next week.
According to the press release, Bus Simulator “will offer players the unique opportunity to create their own bus company in the fictional European city of Seaside Valley and establish a veritable bus empire with official licensed buses by well-known brands such as Mercedes-Benz, Setra, MAN, and IVECO BUS.”
The press release continues: “Another highlight of Bus Simulator on consoles will be the game’s multiplayer mode, which will offer players the unique opportunity to create and manage a bus company with up to three other virtual drivers. Together they can set out to complete numerous missions, expand the city's new bus network, unlock and develop new city districts, drive alongside each other in co-operative convoy trips, or utilize the ticket inspector mode, which will allow one player to drive the bus while a colleague checks the passenger’s tickets or assists in the many in-bus events such as customers listening to loud music or blocking the doors.”
We don’t know about you, but we’ve already booked our tickets ahead of launch next year.
