"Be your own boss behind the wheel of your big rig. Bid on jobs, then hit the road to deliver faster than the competition. Road hazards, low fuel and even the police can affect the timeliness and condition of your deliveries - and impact your bottom line. It's all in a day's work when you're driving the big rigs."
Hard Truck: 18 Wheels of Steel is the first ever created truck simulation game by SCS Software. It is part of ValuSoft's Hard Truck series that also includes games by other developers. It is also the first installment of the 18 Wheels of Steel series.
Hard Truck: 18 Wheels of Steel has very similar gameplay to most other installments of the 18WoS series, focusing on taking jobs and delivering cargo. The game also features AI traffic, a fatigue simulation, road hazards, weigh stations, a time limit for the jobs and a simple business management simulation, where drivers can be hired and routes set up to make profit. Earlier games of the series also had racing options, but they have been removed in this one.
There are three maps of different parts of the United States in the game:
- West Coast
The game includes 7 fictional truck models that are not customizable
- Rusty (based on the truck from Spielberg's Duel)
