Code Horizon and Playway S.A., announced that they have yet another simulator on the horizon, this time it’s a lot less risque than the upcoming Plastic Love game. It’s called Diesel Brothers: Truck Building Simulator. The game is exactly what the namesake infers. Players will have to find four-wheeled scrap heaps from the junkyard and rebuild the trucks to working order and then race them for cash. The official release date for the game has been set for May 10th, 2019 on Steam for PC, and it’s scheduled to release this fall for the Xbox One and PS4.
Diesel Brothers is actually based on the Discovery TV series of the same name, but the game itself is very similar to the Car Mechanic Simulators, only instead of working on production and sports cars, you’ll be working around truck culture instead. You’ll also have commentary from the four main characters from the Discovery TV series providing voiceover work as you progress through the game.
It all starts with a procedurally generated pile parts in a scrap heap where you’ll need to collect a chassis, front and rear axles, and everything required to build out the frame of your truck, just like in the show.
Scour the scrapyard for an engine, hood, doors, wheels, manifold, exhaust, and every other part you can think of.
Once you collect the basics, you’ll need to head back to your garage and proceed to fix-up the truck by putting everything together so you can get it into working order.
You have to manually modify each and every part across every inch of the truck. You can also get a little bit of help from friends by inviting up to three other players to your garage to help you build your truck, which is kind of cool.
Once you finish making tweaks, ensuring everything is perfectly tuned, and your four-wheeled motorized beast looks and feels exactly how you want, it’s time to take out for a test drive.
Here is where the game gets pretty cool because you can head out on the dirt track to test your custom built truck against your friends in multiplayer races. You can check out the video below to get an idea of what the truck handling and race physics are like.
It reminds me a lot of Test Drive: Off-Road.
Beyond that, there’s also the custom decaling and paint works.
I was pleasantly surprised to find out that the paint tools are quite detailed. You can grab a rusted door, remove the rust, use the paint mixer to come up with your own custom color, and then give each part the color you feel it deserves.
From there you can add decals, logos, and other custom liveries to your truck, just like Forza Motorsport.
You know what this means right? You can make a Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice big anime tiddy livery.
Now that’s the kind of truck that would make game journalists cry in shame and gamers weep with joy.
Anyway, you can look for Diesel Brothers: Truck Building Simulator to launch on Steam for PC starting May 10th, 2019 next month. For more info feel free to visit the Steam store page
