Bus Simulator 16 is coming in March, here are the system requirements

When I talked about Farming Simulator 17 recently I thought that would be the strangest and most niche game I'd cover this week but much to my surprise a strong contender has shown itself today.

The game in question is Bus Simulator 16 which not only allows you to drive your very own bus but also run an entire public transport company in both single player and multiplayer. Here's the trailer, system requirements and a bit more information:

 

Compared to more free-flowing simulator games out there Bus Simulator 16 has opted to go for the more serious route. You will be expected to follow traffic rules, calm down unruly passengers (good luck with that), maintain a pristine reputation as a driver, handle various holidays, rush-hour traffic and so forth.

Early on you will have access to only one district but as your company grows so will your contracts and with them the available area you will be expected to cover. Since cities tend to have more than one bus you will need to entrust the rest of your fleet to either NPC partners or actual people.

Bus Simulator has actually realistic busses

To the developers credit, this looks exactly like the buses in my area, including the yellow hold-bars

Before you get excited about 32-man bus races I'm afraid that the multiplayer is essentially the same as the single player game except real people will going over the routes you designed rather than NPCs.

Bus Simulator 16 is coming to Steam on March 2nd and just to be on the safe side here are the system requirements:
