[This unedited press release is made available courtesy of Gamasutra and its partnership with notable game PR-related resource GamesPress.]

Jalopy, the quirky road trip simulation game set in the former Eastern Bloc, will make its console debut on Xbox One on 27 September 2019. With over half a million players on PC, the genre-defining driving and repairing simulation game has been long requested for the Xbox One.

Check out the announcement trailer here. Players can sign up for news here and be notified when they can pre-order.

Navigate miles and miles of tyre changing, fuel burning, carburettor busting, mud clattering terrain, through night and day, rain and shine. Adapt to whatever the procedurally generated world of Jalopy can throw at you.

Upgrade, maintain and care for your Laika 601 Deluxe motor vehicle. Keep close attention to everything from the state of your tyres, the condition of your engine and even the space in your trunk. Repair each aspect of your scrappy little car and install unique upgrades to deal with the changing world. Everything from cargo weight to the condition of your carburettor will determine how your car performs on the open road.

Jalopy is developed by Greg Pryjmachuk, who worked on the Codemasters Formula 1 franchise from 2009 to 2014.
