Alaskan Road Truckers gets the fine details of its gaming title name down to a tee, plus some gameplay footage is on show.
In the harsh virtual environments of Alaska everything must be calculated and carried out with precision, and thats exactly what Alaskan Road truckers has done with its name. With a planned release in 2023, this challenge of a driving title will be rather cool….. and chilly!
When you’re making a game everything needs to be as perfect as possible. Not only in how the game plays, its graphics and sound, but also the game’s name. Sometimes you have time to think – is the game’s name right for what you’re making?
After some long drives and many hours musing on this, we decided to go for a rename. So long, Alaskan Truck Simulator – we’re very proud to introduce you all to… Alaskan Road Truckers!
To celebrate the name change we in conjunction with our friends at IGN have put together an exclusive work-in-progress look at Alaskan Road Truckers showing an Alaskan summer along with some of the jobs you’ll do as a trucker:
Please do remember this footage was captured using a previous version of the game, we’ve made tons of progress since. Here are some of our latest screenshots, feast your eyes!
You’ll get to see more of Alaska soon, we’ll be giving you a look at the different regions, seasons, and climates so keep your eyes peeled for future announcements!
Why have you changed the name?
In Alaskan Road Truckers you aren’t just a truck, you play as a trucker with a focus on life both inside and outside of your vehicle. After all, you’ll be getting in and out of your truck, hitching uploads, fueling up your truck, and maintaining the health of your driver in the Alaskan outdoors.
We want to make sure you know when you look at our game that it’s something different and unique, so we thought – what are you? You’re a trucker, you go on roads…in Alaska.
And so Alaskan Road Truckers was born!
As the game has developed, we feel this brand new name better aligned with our ambitions for the game.
What does this mean for the game?
It means we’ll be changing the logo for the game and the name wherever we have it but that’s it – we’re still making sure we create the definitive Alaskan trucking experience.
We’re working on creating expansive vistas of Alaska filled with life, variety, and treacherous conditions. We’re working to create an in-depth game which gives you an authentic trucker experience alongside a realistic driving model and a full career mode. All the same things we were working on before, just now the name fits better.
Please keep your feedback coming – you are essential in helping us make Alaskan Road Truckers the best trucking life simulator. Let us know what you think after watching the video above and let us know what you’d like to see in the game – we’d love to hear from you.
