Expeditions: A Mudrunner Game will feature four seasons of new content throughout the year

Clear your schedules, it’s a packed year of off-roading ahead

Published: 21 Feb 2024

Upcoming all-terrain sim Expeditions: A Mudrunner Game wants you stuck in the mud all year - it’s dropping four seasonal updates after launch, each of which add new missions, specialists, gameplay mechanics, and vehicle drops.

Due for release on 5 March for PC, Switch and both current and last-gen PlayStation and Xbox consoles, Expeditions is a different kind of driving game. One curiously bereft of lap deltas or podiums or drivers hollering ‘let’s goooooo’ into their radio mics at ear-splitting volume.

Instead, your opponent is the terrain itself. Harsh rocky landscapes, slippery mud and water are all around, and you and your hardy 4X4 need to clear them in a variety of challenge scenarios like rescuing stuck vehicles (that’ll be us, most likely) and exploring new areas then scanning them to gather geographical data.

We rather like the look of it. So much, in fact, that we placed it among our most anticipated driving games of 2024.

In the latest trailer from publisher Focus Entertainment, there are also details of the game’s co-op mode. Probably a tougher sell than ‘fancy a few laps of Forza?’ for the more casual racers on your Discord server, but the idea of setting up a base together, delegating missions or just yomping around the scenery to take in the views sounds like weapons-grade chillout time to us.

The four seasonal content drops are available to players who purchase the Year One Edition and Supreme Edition of the game. It hasn’t been confirmed whether seasonal content will be available to buy individually after the game’s released, but we can’t imagine the publishers putting up too much of a barrier for you to spend extra money.
