SnowRunner Trailer Clearly Inspired By Death Stranding

Technology

The team behind SnowRunner, Saber Interactive, has been releasing a number of trailers for their sequel to Spintires: MudRunner in the lead up to the release.

Usually simulator games like this don’t bother with any kind of story, instead focusing on the realism of whichever simulation they are playing out. Here, it seems that Saber Interactive has decided to add a new level of seriousness to the genre.

The trailer seems to be paying homage to the truck drivers around the world, who get the job done no matter what. However, the melodramatic tones and voice over feel a little too similar, instead coming off as a Death Stranding tribute video. Even the font is the same.

The two games share the idea of deliveries being of the highest importance, so it makes sense that SnowRunner would take some inspiration from the Kojima game, though whether or not the fate of the world will be determined by the driver in SnowRunner has yet to be determined.

SnowRunner is set to be released on April 28 on the Epic Games Store, Xbox One, and PS4.
