Bus Simulator 21’s previously announced Tram Extension will make a stop on PS5 and PS4 from 14th November – but developer StillAlive Studios has even bigger news. Anyone who owns the core game and the aforementioned Tram Extension – or the Season Pass – will be eligible to download an upcoming standalone game named Tram Simulator Urban Transit, which is coming next year.
The developer’s keeping the lid on specific details about that new title for now, but is promising new missions as part of its anticipated DLC pack and “the opportunity to drive and manage trams on both maps [in the game] and to coordinate the rail traffic with that of the bus lines”. We’re really fascinated to see how well this integrates with the core game.
The press release explains: “The DLC brings two drivable trams into the game – including a detailed and interactive cockpit. In addition, the expansion adds a dedicated tram line management section to the route planner of the main game, allowing not only to create tram lines, but also to coordinate them with bus line schedules.”
The Tram Extension will cost $19.99 when it launches on 14th November, and as previously mentioned, you’ll get the standalone Tram Simulator Urban Transit for free next year if you own the DLC or Season Pass. It all seems like a pretty good deal to us, eh?
