The latest edition of this long-lasting series is here and it comes stacked with new content!

Bus Simulator 21 comes with more bus models and manufacturers than ever before.

At launch, there will be 30 models of well-known manufacturers from all around the world. You will see some familiar brands from previous games, such as Mercedes-Benz, Setra, IVECO BUS, and MAN, but for the first time ever, you will be able to drive buses made by Volvo, Alexander Dennis, Scania, BYD, Grande West, and Blue Bird.

In addition, there will be new types of buses as well! The legendary double-decker bus will make its debut in the series with Bus Simulator 21, alongside the environmentally friendly e-bus. Of course, the classic rigid and articulated buses are here as well.

The list of all models is currently unavailable, but we will update the article as soon as we know all the models.

Bus Simulator 21: Maps and locations

Bus Simulator 21 comes with a brand new US map, Angel Shores, alongside the familiar European Seaside Valley map from Bus Simulator 18, but extensively reworked and adjusted for the latest game.

"The even greater open-world approach of Bus Simulator 21 means that you will get to experience the exciting daily life of a bus driver in two massive, freely explorable cities, including industrial and outlying districts, a vibrant Chinatown district, a promenade, the surrounding hilly countryside, and the business park," developers reveal.

Asides from driving your bus and becoming a seasoned bus driver, Bus Simulator 21 implements some new elements in the mix, which will make the gameplay fresh and give players more things to think about and roleplay.

There are a lot of management options added to the game, including selling and buying busses, planning optimal and efficient routes depending on the traffic and pedestrian AI, gaining reputation based on how safely and timely you bring your passengers to their desired locations, and much more.

In short, you will not only be a bus driver you will also manage the whole bus transport company.

And, of course, there will be countless customisation options for both your driver and your busses, as developers promise "more than 15,000 design combinations for you to customize your bus driver's body shape, clothes, skin colour, hair, and much more".
