The Bus Simulator 21 was announced today with a first trailer. The successor will be released in 2021 for PC, PS4 and Xbox One. The backward compatibility of the next-gen consoles will also make the title compatible with PS5 and Xbox Series X. In the new simulation, players can look forward to a new map and the return of multiplayer mode. The campaign and sandbox mode are also back.
Publisher astragon Entertainment and the team from stillalive Studios today announced the next offshoot of the simulation series, Bus Simulator 21. It is the direct successor of Bus Simulator 18 for the PC and the Bus Simulator for consoles. The new part will appear in stores in the course of 2021 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Thanks to backward compatibility, the title will also be playable on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X without any problems.
According to those responsible, fans can look forward to the most extensive simulation to date. Among other things, the vehicle fleet offers an "enormous number of officially licensed and lovingly reproduced bus models" from various manufacturers. For the first time there will also be e-buses and double-deckers in the game. The team has also worked on a new map for Bus Simulator 21. In addition to a revised version of "Seaside Valley" including all expansions, there will also be a brand new map with "Angel Shores", which is based on the San Francisco Bay Area in the USA.
The multiplayer mode from its predecessor also returns in Bus Simulator 21. Here players can build their own local transport empire together. The successor gives fans even more freedom and new functions for setting up their local transport company. But there will also be an extensive campaign and a varied sandbox mode in the single player.
