SnowRunner – New Season 4 expansion and more coming to Switch

Saber Interactive and Focus Home Interactive will soon be releasing the illustrious off-road sim SnowRunner to the Nintendo Switch, as revealed a few weeks ago. This seemingly great though late port is making up for its tardiness with the inclusion of all the released content up to this point, including the brand-new Season 4 expansion.

Season 4 of SnowRunner is going to take players into the new area of the Amur Oblast in Russia. The goal is rather exciting: rebuilding the infrastructure of an abandoned rocket launch facility and the surrounding town in order to help a private company achieve its goal of spaceflight. Of course, this means that gathering, transporting and assembling the stages of a rocket are also included. This expansion also includes two new Russian vehicles, and also various smaller (and free) bits of content such as new trials and customization options.

The new Season 4 expansion of SnowRunner is going to release on the same day as the Switch release—May 18, 2021. That’s just a few days from now! The game also launches on Steam the same day. Switch users will get to enjoy all of the content that SnowRunner has to offer if they splurge a little for the Premium Edition of the game, which includes the Season Pass that grants access to all of the previous paid expansions as well as the new Season 4 content. Alternatively, the core game can be bought on its own and then the Season Pass can be acquired at a later date.

Conquering the wilderness on-the-go

SnowRunner on Switch is shaping up to be a decent port. Though its visual quality has been reduced compared to the other versions, it’s still going to contain all of the content that other players have been enjoying and also looks impressive enough in its own right. This also seems to include, surprisingly, mod support. The developers have stated that it won’t be coming at launch, but customers can look forward to hearing more details in the future.

The game is available for pre-order now via the Nintendo eShop and will also weigh in at just 5.0GB digitally.
