Scania Truck Driving Simulator has finally arrived for PC. If you enjoyed the Euro Truck Simulator series then you will definitely enjoy this game. In many ways, Scania Truck Driving Simulator is a lot like Euro Truck Simulator. But instead of owning your own trucking company, the game is about driving through dangerous locations and completing different challenges.
The game includes different game modes that really help to break up the monotony of making deliveries. These game modes are – Dangerous Locations, Competition and Driving Test Challenges.
You can also drive around the city in Free-Roam mode. In this mode, you can pick up cargo and deliver it without any restrictions. Fans of the Euro Truck series will definitely appreciate this feature.
There are ten different truck driving maneuvers that need to be mastered before you can earn your Truck Drivers License. This involves learning how to park, backup and operate your rig properly. Plus, there are dangerous driving locations that will push your driving skills to the limit.
Just like SCS Software’s other simulations, Scania offers night and day driving along with a real-time weather system. Heavy rain and other weather conditions can make driving treacherous, and like Euro Truck, it requires good driving skills to keep your truck on the road.
Unlike the Euro Truck series, deliveries do not earn you money since you don’t own your own company. In return for doing deliveries, you earn points that are used toward your overall score. An online leader board ranks the player based on how many points were earned and the amount of deliveries made.
The game can be very competitive as gamers fight for better ranks on the leader board. As a fan of simulators, I find this exciting since it makes you work harder to deliver your cargo.
Since Scania Truck Driving Simulator is based on the Scania truck brand, the simulation is limited to one truck. While this may seem off-putting to some gamers, the additional challenges make up for the lack of trucks. And since the graphics inside the truck’s cab are stunning, you won’t even miss not having the additional vehicles to drive.
Scania is just as realistic as SCS Software’s other simulators. While it may not have as many features as some of their other games, it’s just as challenging and fun to play. So if you’re looking for the next best thing in driving simulators, but want an experience that doesn’t include micromanaging a business, then Scania Truck Driving Simulator is definitely the game for you.
