SnowRunner Release Date
We’ve known it was coming for a while, and as of just over a week ago, we can now tell you when it will happen. On the Focus Entertainment forums on March 28th, it was announced that our favorite terrain simulator, SnowRunner, would be coming to the next generation consoles natively.
We’ve known this was coming since July of 2021. From May 31, 2022, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S owners will be able to enjoy the icy, muddy, and all-terrain truck driving classic in 60 frames per second and 4K resolution on the next generation of consoles.
SnowRunner is a game developed by Saber Interactive and published by Focus Entertainment that can be played on PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and, most recently, Nintendo Switch. While SnowRunners were able to play in 4K at 30 frames per second on the PlayStation 4 Pro and Xbox One X, older generation platforms were limited to 1080p at 30 frames per second.
The best thing is that if you already own the game on an older generation console, you can update it for free to the newer consoles. In case you were wondering, the regular edition of the game costs $39.99 / £34.99 right now.
According to the amended roadmap, the seventh SnowRunner Season, Season 7: Compete and Conquer, will begin in the spring of 2022, around this time.
Originally set to premiere in the winter, possibly at the end of 2021 or at the start of 2022, Season 9 has been pushed back to spring 2022, while Season 8 has been pushed into the summer. These dates, according to the forum, are not set in stone and could change at any time.
Crocodile Pack DLC, modding tools, and bug patches are all included in Update 16.1.
Update 16.1 is now available for download on PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Nintendo Switch in preparation for Season 7. A new Crocodile Pack DLC, modding tools for the Nintendo Switch game, and bug fixes are included in the newest SnowRunner update.
Complete & Conquer is the name of the Season 7 expansion for SnowRunner. In keeping with Season 6’s theme of the United States, Complete & Conquer is set in Tennessee.
A dirt circuit, a big river, and new racing events are featured on the summer map. You can engage in solitary time trial events or multiplayer races with your buddies.
SnowRunner Seasons Roadmap
The creators behind SnowRunner dropped a bomb on Thursday, revealing that their popular terrain simulator will be adapted for Next Gen gaming in the near future. Showrunner teased what’s in store for Year 2 in a tweet on Thursday, adding at the end that they’re “working on a next-gen version of the game.”
The current PlayStation 4 and Xbox One editions of the game operate at 1080p and 30 frames per second, but the Xbox One X and PlayStation 4 Pro can handle it optimized at 4K and 30 frames per second. If it works properly on a PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series X/S, we could be looking at 4K trucking at 60 frames per second. Please include me in the request for a copy of that.
Some time frames for the upcoming content releases in Year 2 are also included in the tweet. There will be four seasons, the same as in Year 1, and some free material will be available to all SnowRunner gamers. As a glimpse of what’s to come, Focus Home Interactive released a TATRA Truck pack earlier this year.
Here’s how the second year of SnowRunner is shaping up:
- Season 5: “Build & Dispatch” is set to premiere in the summer of 2021.
- Season 6: “Haul & Hustle” is set to premiere in the fall of 2021.
- Season 7: “Compete & Conquer” is set to premiere in the winter of 2021 or 2022.
- Season 8: “New Expansion” is set to debut in the spring of 2022.
Updated cosmetics, crossplay between platforms, and “immersive mode” will all be part of the year’s free-for-all improvements, which I’m sure we’ll learn more about as the year goes.
The popular off-road trucking game had a strong first year, launching on all major platforms by the end of the year and receiving regular updates. As the game enters its second year, the goal is to go to Next Generation gaming.
We recently spoke with you about the SnowRunner Year 2 pass, which will get you access to a series of updates over the course of a year (new maps, new vehicles, etc.). A roadmap posted on the Focus Home Interactive forum gives us more information regarding the release dates, although without going into detail.
As a result, we find that the first season, dubbed “Build and Dispatch,” will be released this summer. This fall, “Haul and Hustle” will follow the upgrade. We anticipate the release of the “Compete and Conquer” season 7 update for Christmas, followed by a period of peace before the arrival of the last phase 8 “New expansion” in the summer of 2022.
Free stuff is also revealed in the roadmap, including new car skins and crossplay (PC and consoles?). There’s also an “immersive” option that hides UI elements automatically. “New game” is mentioned… but no further information is provided. Isn’t the sequel to Snowrunner already in the works, set to release around the end of 2022? Why not, but we’ll need to allow gamers some time to go through all of the new stuff!
