In Bus Simulator 18 players will have the unique opportunity to create their very own bus company either solo in single player mode or together with up to three friends in multiplayer mode and lead it to success in the fictional European city of Seaside Valley. During the course of the game they will be able to access and drive eight officially licensed and lovingly recreated bus models by the worldwide renowned makers Mercedes-Benz, MAN, IVECO BUS and Setra.

In the course of the game driving their own buses will not be the only important task for bus enthusiasts, they will also manage their aspiring bus company, create new bus lines, hire new drivers and complete entertaining missions to gain access to more and more city districts and buses.

Thanks to the new progression system as well as a wide range of special events and features the game will offer long-term entertainment even for players after they have successfully unlocked all buses and city districts, as this system will enable them to focus on the further advancement of their bus company.

Creative bus drivers will also be happy to hear of the release of the Bus Simulator 18: Modding Kit. The Unreal® Engine 4 based modding kit will give them the opportunity to create not only their own buses, decals, adverts and skins but also completely new maps and cities. The finished mods can then be included in the Steam Workshop, where other players will be able to download and add them to their own game.
