Astragon Entertainment has announced that its popular PC title, Bus Simulator 18, has come to the Playstation 4 (PS4) and Xbox One. This game involves a fictional city with 12 "vibrant" districts, 8 high-fidelity models of the vehicle in question and a multiplayer mode. It can be downloaded now for US$39.99 from the Microsoft and PS Stores.

Finally, the ultimate use of the modern-day console has arrived. Astragon Entertainment and StillAlive Studios are now in a position to present Bus Simulator 18 for the PS4 and Xbox One. Like its PC version, this game has its own specially-created fictional city, Seaside Valley, around which to drive elongated multi-seat vehicles. It is split into 12 different districts, each of which has its own routes and missions - or services, rather.

The player can choose between 8 vehicles, which are intended to replicate real-world models from familiar marques such as Mercedes-Benz, Setra and IVECO. The game also has a multiplayer mode, by which up to 4 competitors can battle to be the best driver. Alternatively, a single player can simply drive around on routes they make up themselves.

Bus Simulator 18 is available as a download, and has been set at US$39.99 from the Microsoft or PS Stores. For this, the player can also choose between various different types of the vehicle in question (from country-style to articulated), experience the pedals used by real-life drivers and generally have all the fun of driving a virtual bus. Let's see a GTA title do that.
