Simulation titles like SnowRunner certainly aren't for everyone, but we're big fans of these oddly satisfying games. This one in particular is all about driving large haulage vehicles through extreme terrain and conditions, and while in some ways it's a chore, it can be a deeply compelling experience. Today, players will get to push these trucks and cars to their limits in new levels of fidelity, as Focus Entertainment brings the title to PS5.
The native, current-gen version of SnowRunner benefits from 4K resolution, a smooth 60 frames-per-second, improved depth of field, and speedier loading times. There's no mention of the DualSense and its bells and whistles, but this seems like the perfect game to take advantage of the fancy pad, so hopefully that's included too. The best bit is that owners of the PS4 game can upgrade to the PS5 version for free, and save data will transfer over. You can also claim the Anniversary DLC at no cost, giving you access to a pair of additional trucks.
It also happens to launch right alongside Season 7: Compete & Conquer. Available as standalone DLC or as part of the Year 2 Pass, it introduces racing elements to SnowRunner. A map based on Tennessee and two new vehicles are added, and you can compete on dirt and road circuits as well as a rough off-road course. There are time trial challenges, or you can race friends online.
