A new name and ready to go!

TruckSim becomes TruckSimulation 16 - now available for iOS® and Android™!

Moenchengladbach/Germany, November 25th, 2015 – In order to avoid confusion with other brands, astragons new truck simulation for iOS® and Android™ has been renamed and will appear today as TruckSimulation 16 in the Apple® App Store℠ and on Google Play™. The new game by German publisher astragon Entertainment and multi-award-winning developer kunst-stoff, offers players the chance to get behind the steering wheels of originally licensed trucks by German maker MAN and become the largest logistics entrepreneur in Europe!

The player starts out with a MAN F8 vintage truck and earns his first money as a logistics provider by fulfilling varied delivery orders. The so accumulated funds can be invested in seven further realistically reproduced trucks such as the officially licensed MAN TGS and TGX traction engines as well as the 1.100 horsepower strong racing truck of several-time European truck race champion Jochen Hahn!

The player will not only himself take a seat in the driver’s cab of his trucks but also be able to hire other AI-drivers, who will in turn carry out delivery missions and earn additional funds for the rising logistics company.

Numerous delivery orders will lead the player across roads and into cities of big parts of Middle and Western Europe within a freely drivable game world. Additionally to the already mentioned trucks, he can make use of eight trailers suitable for different groups of goods such as container semi-trailer, tipping semi-trailers for bulk goods, a low-loader for transporting construction machines and other heavy materials and even a tank container with which he can safely deliver chemicals and other hazardous liquids.

TruckSimulation 16 offers not only a realistic and almost endless driving experience on its highways but also more than 20 cities with their iconic landmarks. New challenges await the player throughout his virtual career. Delivering your goods without accident will be awarded with bonuses which can be used to expand the company and its vehicle fleet. Good driving skills will therefore be just as rewarded as the competent management of employees. In this way capable company bosses will soon be happy to call the highly coveted Castrol Team Hahn Racing Truck their own and test its full power on the roads and highways of the game.

TruckSimulation 16 for iPhone®, iPad® as well as smartphones and tablets using Android™ can now be found in the Apple® App Store℠ and on Google Play™ for Euro 2.99/2.99 USD/GBP 1.99. The game will be initially released fully localized in German, English, French, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, Polish and Turkish. Japanese and Russian language options will follow soon.
