Bus Simulator 18: Closed Beta Test - Apply now!



Today we are happy to officially announce the start of the application period for the closed beta test of our upcoming Bus Simulator 18!

The development of Bus Simulator 18 is a big step into the future of this popular city bus simulation franchise for creators and players alike. Thanks to the use of Unreal® Engine 4, bus fans can now not only look forward to huge changes in the game’s visuals but also the implementation of a wide variety of new features and detail enhancements.

In comparison to 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.

In order to give players and fans of the series a chance to thoroughly test the already very advanced stage of development, publisher astragon Entertainment and developer stillalive studios have now opened applications for a closed beta test of Bus Simulator 18. A unique chance not to be missed by any bus or simulation fans!

If you would like to test Bus Simulator 18 already before its official release and provide the developers with valuable feedback during the polishing phase of the game, you are welcome to complete your application form between March, 27 and April 4, 2018 under the following link: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSfVnVsj0-CR6j_7V54FjKmncOu3IceiBa15ZxylM9m9zvsBpQ/viewform

About This Game

A gigantic, freely accessible world is waiting for you in Bus Simulator 16. Transport your passengers to their destinations across five authentic city districts safely and on time. Drive a two-door, three-door, or a true-to-life articulated bus through commuter traffic at rush hour, watch out for emergency vehicles, and take detours around construction sites. Make sure that you are always aware of your surroundings or you will get into trouble for accidents and traffic violations!

Apart from driving you will also have to maintain order on the inside of your bus. Calm upset passengers, repair stuck doors, sell the correct tickets, and extend the ramp for wheelchair users in a timely manner. You will have to be efficient if you want to stick to your schedule and increase your reputation in the city, earn the trust of your passengers and most importantly make lots of money! The better your reputation, the larger the contracts you will be able to secure, and the more buses will be available to your company in the shop. Unlock additional districts of the city and carefully plan routes for bus drivers in your employ, who you can hire through the ingame job exchange.

As you grow more and more successful, you will also be able to acquire advertising banners for your buses, which will bring in some additional funds. If you are not satisfied with the appearance of your buses, you can paint and decorate them with unlockable decals, ensuring that your passengers will reach their destinations in the coolest way possible.

Multiplayer Mode

You think bus drivers are lonely? Not in Bus Simulator 16! Invite your friends into your game in the multiplayer mode and let them take over some routes for you. The money they earn can be used to expand your shared company and thus contributes to the optimization of public transport in your city.

Modding

You want to drive even more buses and arrange Sunny Springs to fit your expectations? Reconstruct the city to suit your own taste: Bus Simulator 16 is mod-friendly, and you can use programs like Blender and Gimp to adjust the visual appearance of the existing buses to your liking, as well as integrate your own custom buses and buildings into the game.
