Trailmakers is part creative vehicle-building sandbox, and part open-world rally expedition. You begin your journey in a desolate canyon on a distant planet, and must scavenge for discarded vehicle parts. Your goal is to get as far as you can! Build a rig and experience the sweet rush of freedom that follows the acquisition of motorized transportation.
The world in Trailmakers is an inherently dangerous place. To progress in the expedition you need to continuously adjust your vehicle to overcome obstacles and conquer the environment. Play alone and see how far you can get, or join your friends for a fun co-op quest. In Trailmakers, the adventure is in the making.
Trailmakers was released in early access on January 30, 2018.
Features[edit | edit source]
The Game[edit | edit source]
Trailmakers is about building awesome vehicles and machines, but you don’t need an engineering degree to get started. The intuitive builder will get you going in no time. Everything you build is made from physical building blocks. Each block has unique features like shape, weight and functionality. They can be broken off, refitted and used to build something new. Individually the blocks are fairly simple, but combined the possibilities are endless.
Building[edit | edit source]
The core of Trailmakers is the builder – an intuitive, easy-to-use creative space where making your constructions is as simple as playing with LEGO. The goal is to avoid the feel of complicated 3D-software, and make it an accessible part of the game. You can build anywhere in the game!
World[edit | edit source]
Trailmakers is set in a big world with different environments that require you to continuously adjust and upgrade your vehicles. You don’t reach snowy mountain tops, dry savannahs, or grassy fields in the same old rust bucket. While it is a living place with hazards, challenges, and wildlife, the world is also a place where you can just relax and explore.
Multiplayer[edit | edit source]
Trailmakers is even more fun if you play it with a friend. Put two seats in your vehicle or race each other towards that last jet engine - it is up to you. Both Creative and Expedition Mode support multiplayer.
Mod Support[edit | edit source]
Since Trailmakers is all about being creative, we want to extend the customization aspect of the game into modding territory. We hope people will experiment with Trailmakers and surprise us with brand new game modes and creations.
