Simteract, a Kraków-based game development studio, has announced the official release date for its upcoming title "Taxi Life: A City Driving Simulator," set to launch in February 2024.

The game promises to immerse players in the bustling urban sprawl of Barcelona, challenging them to manage both the steering wheel and the intricacies of a taxi business.

With realistic cityscapes and dynamic passenger interactions, "Taxi Life" aims to replicate the daily hustle of transporting city dwellers, balancing customer satisfaction with the unpredictable ebbs and flows of urban traffic.

The game features an expansive replica of Barcelona, offering 286 miles of roads to explore, all reproduced at a 1:1 scale.

Players will start with a car and a vision, gradually building their taxi service into a thriving business. To succeed, they must navigate through the city's notorious traffic, adapting to rush hours, changing weather, and the diverse demands of passengers.

"Taxi Life" encourages strategic route planning and skill development, rewarding players with experience points for discovering new city landmarks and unlocking the ability to accept more lucrative fares.

Since its inception in 2014, Simteract has evolved from crafting professional training simulations, including a train driver simulator for US trainees, to focusing on premium simulation games.

Their transition has seen the studio grow to over 60 specialists, leveraging original technologies and modern equipment to push the envelope in simulation gaming. With "Taxi Life: A City Driving Simulator," Simteract taps into its technological proficiency and simulation expertise to deliver an engaging experience for fans of the genre.

The game, compatible with popular steering wheel peripherals and game controllers, represents the studio's ambition and growth as they steer their way into the gaming industry's fast lane.

You can wishlist it on Steam now and keep up with the final stages of its development by following Simteract's X account and YouTube channel. It will also be available on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S.
