On Thursday, the team behind SnowRunner dropped a bomb that their popular terrain simulator is being formatted for Next Gen gaming fairly soon. In a tweet on Thursday, Snowrunner gave a glimpse of what’s in store for Year 2 and added at the end that they are “working on a next-gen version of the game.”
The current edition of the game on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One runs at 1080p and 30fps while the Xbox One X and PlayStation 4 Pro can handle it optimized at 4K and 30fps. If it winds up working correctly on a PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series X/S, we could be in store for 4K trucking at 60fps. Count me in for a copy of that, please.
Other news from the tweet includes some time frames for the next content releases coming in Year 2. There are four seasons in store as it was in Year 1, and on top of that, there is some free content coming for all SnowRunner players. Focus Home Interactive already dropped a TATRA Truck pack earlier as a preview of what’s to come.
Here’s how things are stacking up for SnowRunner Year 2:
- Season 5: “Build & Dispatch” – Coming Summer 2021
- Season 6: “Haul & Hustle” – Coming Fall 2021
- Season 7: “Compete & Conquer” – Coming Winter 2021 or 2022
- Season 8: “New Expansion” – Coming Spring 2022
The free-for-all updates during the year will include updated cosmetics, crossplay between different platforms and “immersive mode”, something I’m sure we’ll learn more about as the year progresses.
The popular off-road trucking game saw great successes in the first year of the game, launching on all major platforms by the end of it with continuous updates throughout. As the game progresses into its second year, the aim is high as they look to go Next Gen gaming.
