Spintires is one of those games that kind of passed us by at Team VVV, it came out somewhat under the radar in 2014, then found a huge, almost cult following on YouTube. Spintires 2017 took all of that investment and success into relaunching the console game many of you will know as Mudrunner. A game or should I say, sim, that continues to satisfy its audience. Indeed, today sees the release of the latest DLC pack, entitled ‘Spintires – SHERP Ural Challenge DLC’ a rather unusual name for a very unusual vehicle.
Now traditionally I see Spintires as a big truck game, that big truck that is usually pulling huge logs with a largely impossible yet realistic terrain to traverse. This requires, skill, experience and dexterity. However, when you set eyes on the SHERP® N 4X4 ATV, this amphibious vehicle has more in common with a tank or military vehicle rather than your standard truck challenge. Besides the addition of vehicles SHERP® N 4X4 ATV and seemingly unstoppable SHERP® the ARK 10×10 ATV, the additional DLC map was inspired by the Yugyd Va National Park in the Ural Mountains. Picturesque yet tough terrain to maximise the limits of the SHERP in all condition.
This update also includes amphibious vehicle support, self-inflating tires that are controllable, differential steering, vertical steering for articulated vehicles and rather surprisingly, entirely rewritten mud physics. The DLC costs $3.99 or £2.99 and is available now for PC via Steam, meanwhile you can check otu the latest trailer of the SHERP in action below.
