Taking on the brave if not somewhat daunting task of going head-to-head with the undisputed king of the truck driving game franchise, SCS Software, Dutch development studio Triangle Studios are putting the final touches to their new and admittedly rather cool looking new game - Truck Driver.
Now from the title I'm sure it will leave none of you in any doubt what the game is set to be about when it launches later this year - yep, you guessed it - truck driving!
One would be forgiven for thinking that a game based on hauling load isn't that fun, but with the frankly astounding success achieved by SCS Software with their European Truck Sim 2 and American Truck Simulator titles, it certainly appears that games based on truck driving have a very large and keen player base within the PC gaming community. Rather than copy and paste what SCS have achieved with their enviable back catalogue of titles, Soedesco are looking for a slightly different take on the truck driving genre, whilst incorporating much of the empire building and realism features that have made the aforementioned titles so popular in recent years.
One thing that Truck Driver will certainly hold above its rival when it launches later this year is multi platform release, with the game set to deploy on both PC and Xbox One and PlayStation 4, bringing the joy of long distance deliveries to an entirely new audience.

Looks like this could be a fun game. Looking forward to hearing more about it as build up to release continues.
