2014 Steam hit Spintires is coming to consoles. Spintires: Mudrunner, due in October for PS4, Xbox One and PC, upgrades the original off-road driving simulator’s graphics while adding a sixth sandbox map, a challenge mode and 13 new vehicles.
Spintires is a popular Steam driving game. Recently, it stopped working under mysterious circumstances. People came to believe the game’s own programmer, Pavel Zagrebelnyy, sabotaged it because he wasn’t getting paid. That’s (probably) not true.
Something curious happened over the weekend: a game called 'Spintires' rose through the Steam charts, eventually becoming the top-selling game on Steam for a few days. Right now, as of this writing, it's number two. One thing lots people, myself included, couldn't help but asking was: why?
Off-road truck simulator Spintires is now out on Steam, exactly one year after the successful conclusion of its Kickstarter campaign. The launch trailer, which was released a few weeks ago, should be able to show you what the finished game is like (though I believe the actual game has significantly less wubs).
British software outfit Oovee has been tweaking and beta-testing their off-road simulator SpinTires for many moons. Now that the full-featured version is almost ready to go, I'm ready to believe this game might be the first and last title for ultra-realistic, aesthetically beautiful, off-road adventuring.
One of the best things about driving games on the PC is that they're not all about racing sports cars. There's stuff like Euro Truck Simulator. And now this, Spintires, which is basically a game about trying to keep trucks on the road on some of the world's worst roads.
