Watch On

Star Trucker, like many other trucking simulators, will invite players to pilot their own trucking rig, attach cargo, and dock at stations to deliver the goods. Of course, this is in space, now, so there’s also a need to learn how to manage and repair your hull when you run into issues, as well as just successfully navigate the stars. Jobs are procedurally generated in Star Trucker, meaning the player will never run out of quests to keep them busy. 

Side quests featuring fully-voiced characters help to make the galaxy feel alive, and players can communicate with those characters using a CB radio.  Players will have the ability to leave their rig to spacewalk while repairing the rig or collecting salvage. Goods and contraband can be traded, and a functional economy will continue to shake up the galaxy. Star Trucker will be a single-player simulator, and there are no plans from Monster & Monster to introduce multiplayer or co-op in the future.

The PC edition of Star Trucker will support game controllers at launch, along with keyboard and mouse support.
