Loading, unloading, planning routes, shunting, refueling and above all driving, driving, driving – all this and much more is now possible even with the controller in hand and from sofas at home. Because as of today, On The Road – Truck Simulator by Aerosoft and toxtronyx is available for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
As the first deep truck simulator for consoles, it comes with quite a few features: players drive original replica truck models from MAN (TGX) and Skania (R-series) in different configurations on a road network of almost 7,000 km with autobahns and country roads throughout Germany. In the process, they complete a wide variety of transport assignments with goods of all kinds, pass through well-known traffic junctions and explore 16 major German cities with all their traffic peculiarities and characteristic sights.
At the beginning, the players start as the boss of their own small haulage company, which they can gradually expand into a flourishing business. This requires not only good driving skills, but also organizing ability. Because with an increasing number of orders, more vehicles, additional personnel and efficient route planning are needed, while observing the legally prescribed rest periods.
On The Road – Truck Simulator is the third title that Aerosoft is releasing for consoles. Previously, the game has been released for PC and has been continuously improved since its launch

We’re very much looking forward to the exchange and feedback from fans.“
