About Bus Simulator 21

About this game

Look forward to Bus Simulator 21, and the most comprehensive and advanced fleet in the history of the series. For Bus Simulator 21, a fleet of 30 officially licensed buses by well-known, international manufacturers such as Alexander Dennis, BYD, Grande West, and Blue Bird will join the models by popular brands already included in the preceding installment (Mercedes-Benz, Setra, IVECO BUS, and more). For the first time, you will have the chance to master the challenges of daily traffic in the cockpit of double-decker and electric buses.

Get ready for the brand-new, impressive US map Angel Shores and a revamped version of the European Seaside Valley map from the previous game installment – including its map extension. 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. Different difficulty levels and play modes are also available for a wide range of player types.
In Bus Simulator 21, you will not only become a capable driver with countless miles on the road – you also have the option to use extended management elements. Creating detailed timetables, buying and selling buses, and planning efficient routes that take into account the daily number of passengers at peak hours – these and more varied tasks are available for you to enjoy.

Do you prefer getting up from behind the desk and taking steering your buses into your own hands? No problem! The auto-features of Bus Simulator 21 can take over your management duties and let pure bus drivers simply enjoy their time on the road.

Plus, the revised traffic and pedestrian AI, improved graphics, and a dynamic day-night cycle tightly linked to the peak hours system as well as different weather conditions ensure an even more immersive bus driving experience.

Play in either single-player or synced multiplayer mode, transport your passengers safely and promptly to their destinations and be rewarded for your timely and safe driving at the end of pay day.

Freely usable convenience features, such as quickly jumping to desired stops on the map (fast travel), fast forwarding time, and directly taking over the routes of your NPC buses, all complete the virtual bus driver package and guarantee even more fun behind the wheel!

Enjoy Bus Simulator 21 on PC or consoles for the most comprehensive bus driving experience in the history of the series!

I have also the 2018 version, and while that game was their first attempt with the Unreal engine, this second attempt is pretty much lazy and disappointing. They made a new map, which has nothing to do with an American city for sure, just looking at how the streets are connecting to each other and the overall look and feel; there are some updates on the bus and graphics overall and the main feature advertised is the company management, which is really barebone and not much to write home about. The neat thing is that you can see the other bus now and let the AI to drive them, but that is really too little to justify the full price asked. The bus still drive like BS2018, the passengers are still looking quite similar, and you get a lot of "twins" version, the bugs are off the chart, with people walking around and disappear, getting stuck or lost while walking and with the same overall look of being there just to say "we have passengers that board the bus". This is more of a DLC than a real upgrade; in 3 years they could not fix most of the horrible traffic for pedestrians and vehicles, and make the game more enjoyable. The extras added are nice but again, they are more in the DLC territory to be honest, not something I would call a new version, especially because the game still look very amateurish, and if you can't make a game made in Unreal to look outstanding, clearly it is not the fault of the engine. Buy it only on sale; this game should be bought as DLC for the extra map and the new AI drivers mechanic; nothing more.

Astonishing game! Now with the latest updates all glitches are gone, graphic is perfect and steering and driving seems so realistic! Although, my steering wheel is still not supported, but I use Xbox 360 emu and everything works just fine!
