Arriving in October 2020 for the PC, PS4 and Xbox One (and in November for Nintendo Switch), the new Monster Truck Championship content trailer shows more of the customisation options for your vehicle in the game.
It looks like you’ll be able to select bodyshells, paint and additional objects for your Monster Truck in a way that’s reminiscent of arcade racers like Wreckfest. That’s not a bad thing, as for those of us who aren’t talented livery designers, having an easy way to create a good looking truck means we can get back to driving over, and through, things.
The changes won’t just be visual, as you can change engines, tyres and suspension before tuning them to handle the way you want.
As previously revealed, you’ll get to drive at 25 circuits in Monster Truck Championship, with a choice of 16 customisable trucks to pick from. Modes include Race, Time-Trial, Drag Races, Freestyle and Destruction.
Perhaps the most interesting thing about Monster Truck Championship is that developers Teyon and publishers Nacon are apparently opting for a realistic approach to driving rather than an arcade style game.
It’ll be hard to judge whether they can accurately achieve this without any experience of actually driving a monster truck. But what I hope it means is that the game makes it feel as if I’m really in control of one of the huge wheeled beasts, even if it’s not completely 100% accurate.
