TransRoad: USA is a management simulation that grants players the opportunity to discover the sophisticated logistics that are indispensable when it comes to keeping the US economy up and running.

After conquering the Seven Seas twice in TransOcean: The Shipping Company and TransOcean 2: Rivals, the newest game by German developer team Deck13 Hamburg will take you to mainland USA. Or more precisely to a city of your choice from where you will manage your very own transport company.

Players can then take the fate of a young transport company into their own hands and – by applying all their management skills and savvy planning - turn it into the biggest hauler of the whole USA!

In the course of the game you will send countless trucks and their valuable freight along the legendary US highways, which connect not only federal states and time zones but also important industry sectors and their suppliers. With TransRoad: USA you will gain entrance into the challenging world of cross-country haulage and by cleverly employing your management skills seize the opportunity to lead your business to the very top!

In TransRoad: USA ambitious future haulers can be looking forward to three such game modes: campaign, quest and sandbox.

The campaign of TransRoad: USA lets the player take on the role of an experienced trucker, who, together with friend and colleague Billy Bowman, delivers cargo across the USA in the employ of an established hauler. They are both looking forward to a long planned camping trip to the Grand Canyon that is to follow the completion of their current contract. This plan is however thwarted by none other than their own employer – both truckers are fired! After getting over the initial shock, Billy and his friend hatch an ambitious plan: they will use their expertise and found their own truck company! Luckily the two young entrepreneurs are not only able to secure a first loan, with which they buy a company site in Augusta/Maine, but there is also Billy’s very own truck and trailer, which gives them the opportunity to start tackling deliveries right from the start. First successfully completed contracts see their popularity rising with their clients and soon they are able to hire other drivers and invest in new trucks. Everything is going great, well that is, until the first official prosecution letters arrive that talk of irregularities concerning the company’s foundation and other serious accusations. Who might be behind this nasty act of sabotage?

The campaign mode of TransRoad: USA has not only an interesting story to offer to the players, but is also perfect for introducing them to the gameplay mechanics of the management simulation game, which they will also encounter in the quest and sandbox mode and which are absolutely necessary to lead their businesses to success.

More information about the quest and sandbox mode will follow soon.

TransRoad USA: will become globally available for PC and Mac, both in retail and as a digital download, on November 9, 2017 for 24.99 Euro / 24.99 USD (RSP).
