astragon Entertainment and stillalive Studios have announced that the next iteration in their acclaimed vehicle simulation franchise, Bus Simulator 21, will include two brand new, officially licensed Mercedes-Benz eCitaro buses for the first time in the series history when the title launches for PC, PlayStation®4 and Xbox One on September 07, 2021. Buses from the celebrated German manufacturer’s impressive Citaro and CapaCity series will also be featured in the game.

A long-standing relationship with Mercedes-Benz has allowed astragon and stillallive to recreate eCitaro buses in remarkable detail. In addition to a small two-doored, 12-meter-long, maneuverable eCitaro electric bus with two axles, Bus Simulator 21 will include a large three-door, 18-meter-long eCitaro G articulated bus equipped with three axles and plenty of space for passengers. Enthusiasts will also be able to hit the road with other Mercedes-Benz buses like the Citaro G, the agile Citaro K, an up-to-date version of the Citaro O 530, the CapaCity and the extra-long CapaCity L articulated bus.
Overall, 30 officially licensed buses from world-renowned brands will be featured in the final game. Fans will be able to steer city buses, articulated buses, e-buses and a double decker bus while brushing up on their driving skills and taking in the sights of European-based city “Seaside Valley” and a new San Francisco Bay Area-inspired setting called “Angel Shores.”
Bus Simulator 21 will also allow fans to manage their own local transport company alone via single-player or with friends via the game’s cooperative multiplayer component. With two massive open-world maps, refined driving gameplay and a variety of expanded features, enthusiasts can look forward to rolling around in the most extensive bus driving experience in the history of the popular game series later this year.
Bus Simulator 21 will release on September 07, 2021 for 34.99 EUR / 34.99 USD / 29.99 GBP (RSP) for PC as well as for 49.99 EUR / 49,99 USD / 44.99 GBP (RSP) for PlayStation®4 and Xbox One. The title will be playable on PlayStation®5 and Xbox Series X and S via backwards compatibility.
