If you’re familiar with the show Ice Road Truckers on the History channel, you know just how dangerous it is to drive on icy conditions. In addition to braving the elements, these truckers risk their lives to transport large loads to target destinations. One wrong move could be fatal. Now imagine these dangerous scenarios in a video game. That’s the vibe SnowRunner is going for.

This trucking simulator received a lot of spotlight at this year’s Gamescom. It’s a sequel to the first MudRunner, which by all accounts, was an amazing and authentic trucking simulator. The sequel is upping the stakes with dangerous snowy environments. If you thought traversing through muddy roads was difficult, wait until you get a big rig out on the ice. You’ll be on the edge of your seat all the way through your perilous travels.

Looking at the trailer, SnowRunner looks like the perfect challenge. We see heavy-duty rigs traveling through some insane environments. Traveling across mountain tops is particularly nerve-wracking. One wrong maneuver will send your rig tumbling down on either side. You must thus exercise extreme caution and master the mechanics of driving on ice.

We also see rigs heading through icy waters, muddy environments, and cluttered forests. The trailer concludes with a huge rig losing control and falling down a mountain. These are the dangers you’ll face with every mission in SnowRunner. If your heartbeat isn’t racing after seeing these dangerous driving simulations, you better check your pulse.

As if the environments weren’t enough of a challenge, you’ll have to get accustomed to different vehicles. Some are large and harder to turn while others are smaller and don’t have as much power. There will be a good variety of vehicles to choose from, depending on the challenge you’re looking for.

That’s not all. There will be many open-ended maps you’ll get to travel through. Each one will have unique challenges you’ll be forced to overcome. The developers of SnowRunner do such a great job at taking a dangerous industry and showing what challenges these truckers experience on a daily basis. It does real-life ice road truckers justice.

If you’re hoping to get your hands on this authentic, intense trucking game, it will be available sometime next year on PC. You’ve probably never experienced driving like this in a video game. Come prepared to make quick decisions and overcome tough obstacles with all sorts of different vehicles. You’ll get hooked with your first haul.
