As lifelike as it can possibly be

Heavy Duty Challenge is a non-racing but heavily competitive motorsport game inspired by Europa Truck Trial Motorsport Championships. This real-life event with huge trucks and over 30-years of tradition is now taking place via the Internet for the first time in history due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Developers from Nano Games took this very seriously and are working to make Heavy Duty Challenge the best possible reflection of Europa Truck Trial. Using the amazing possibilities of photogrammetry technology and the studio’s own original engine, they took authentic vehicles and locations and implemented them into the gameplay.

Check out the first gameplay teaser to find out how realistic this simulator game is going to really be:
