BMT sees the player take command of an 18-wheel rig, trucking from city to city, wheeling and dealing and upping the stakes as they battle to build up a personal fortune. Along the way players will run into the local biker gangs, corrupt sheriffs and even their own redneck siblings, who are also out to amass their own fortune – even if it’s at the player’s expense!
Empire recently reported its preliminary results for 2001, where it announced it would release multiple titles on the next generation consoles and PC in the second half of 2002.
