'Bus Simulator 18' Details Its Licensed Buses - Screens

by Rainier on May 25, 2018 @ 11:24 a.m. PDT

With extensive modding opportunities and a 2.5x bigger game world compared to its predecessor, Bus Simulator 18 will deliver the most complete Bus Simulator experience ever.

In addition to buses by Daimler Buses and MAN as well as a more the twice as large game world compared to its predecessor, players of Bus Simulator 18 can already look forward to even more possibilities in regards to bus and city modding as well as a synchronous multiplayer mode.

Bus Simulator 18 is being developed in Unreal Engine 4, which means even more and better creative options in regards to the game’s graphics for stillalive studios.

Further interesting features of Bus Simulator 18 include a day/night cycle as well as an enhanced progression system.


Astragon Entertainment and developer stillalive studios are happy to reveal the first details about the bus models that the player will encounter in the game...

Bus Simulator 18 will include eight officially licensed buses by the world-famous makers Mercedes-Benz, MAN, IVECO and Setra. Players will be able to drive these faithfully recreated buses either as single players or together with friends in the game’s synchronous multiplayer mode and create their very own bus company in the fictitious European city of Seaside Valley.

Virtual bus drivers will start their game with a two-door Mercedes-Benz Citaro K. Later on they will also encounter bit by bit the other bus models of Bus Simulator 18, with which they will be able to gradually expand their company fleet. These include the two-door Setra S 416 LE business, the three-door MAN Lion‘s City bus, a three-door, twelve meter long IVECO BUS Urbanway with natural gas drive as well as a three-door, 18.1 meter long Mercedes-Benz Citaro G articulated bus. In addition, there are the triaxial three-door Setra S 418 LE business, a three-door 18 meter long IVECO BUS Urbanway CNG articulated bus and finally the 5-door, 18.7 meter long MAN Lion´s City CNG articulated bus, which also comes with a natural gas drive.

Thanks to this huge selection of different bus models with their diverse range of lengths, seating capacities and turning circles, players will always have the right vehicle for each possible route at hand in Bus Simulator 18 – no matter, if they are driving through narrow and twisted Old Town lanes or bustling, high-traffic city areas, through Seaside Valley’s rural surroundings complete with picturesque villages, the business park or the harbor district.

In comparison to its successful predecessor, Bus Simulator 16, Bus Simulator 18 comes with a brand-new, freely driveable map that is 2.5 times as large as the one of Bus Simulator 16 and will offer an even greater number of interesting city districts. Another new feature that will delight Bus Simulator fans: In addition to the originally licensed city buses by famous makers such as Mercedes Benz and MAN, Bus Simulator 18 will for the first time also include buses by the manufacturer IVECO.

Players will also find that many wishes coming from the game’s faithful community have been implemented in the newest version of the game. This includes the options to drive by day and night as well as an improved progression system and significantly expanded modding options, which now allow not only for the addition of the player’s own bus models but also the creation of whole new cities. To top it all off, Bus Simulator 18 now comes with a synchronous multiplayer mode where up to four players will be able to play together at the same time.

Thanks to the advanced modding support in Bus Simulator 18 players will not only be able to create and implement new buses but also whole new cities!

Bus Simulator 18 will be released on June 13, 2018 in retail as well as a digital download for 29.99 EUR/$34.99 USD/26.99 GBP.
