BUS SIMULATOR 18 OFFICIAL MAP EXTENSION LAUNCH TRAILER

Moenchengladbach, Germany, May 22, 2019 — Renowned international simulation publisher astragon Entertainment and developer stillalive studios proudly announced today that new map content for best-in-class transit sim Bus Simulator 18 is now available on Steam.This map extension adds two new districts to Seaside Valley: Kerststadt, a bustling education and tech hub containing Seaside Valley’s airport, and Sonnstein, a rustic alpine village with winding mountain roads that encircle its gorgeous vistas. Also included are new tasks, mission-givers, and rider dialogue that further enrich the experience. Starting today, the map extension for Bus Simulator 18 is available on Steam for 12.99 EUR / 15.99 USD / 11.69 GBP. The base game is also available on Steam for 29.99 EUR / 34.99 USD / 26.99 GBP.

The trailer for Bus Simulator 18’s official map extension shows off the new roads and scenery coming to Seaside Valley. Players will be tasked with expanding their transit empire into industrious Kerststadt and tranquil Sonnstein to join them up with the rest of Seaside Valley. Along the way they’ll meet new NPCs and unlock new livery for their buses.

This Official Map Extension DLC adds nine missions, two new districts with 20 stops, new cosmetics, and unique rider dialogue to explore as you build upon your transportation network. The vibrant and busy Kerststadt will be full of students, entrepreneurs, and other busybodies that have places to be and want an efficient way to get there. On the other side of the spectrum Sonnstein is a laid-back, rural town where you can unplug and take time to appreciate the simpler things in life. New characters will help you lay the groundwork, but it will be on you to determine how you develop your company into these new regions. If that's too much pressure, recruit some friends and run your routes in multiplayer, fully supported in these new areas, just like in the base game.

Julian Mautner, CEO of stillalive studios says of the team, "We're really grateful to our community for supporting the game and helping us to get this far. We invite everyone to pick up the DLC and hop back behind the wheel alone or with some friends for a tour of the new districts."
