Construction Simulator made its triumphant return, with a brand new entry to the series. Whilst its predecessor was set in a fictional U.S. state, Construction Simulator 3 transports the earth-churning, pile-driving action back to Europe — in this case, a central Alpine region. As you work through the game’s 70 missions, you’ll be able to freely roam its 10-square-kilometre map. You have towering mountains, evergreen forests and idyllic towns as your backdrop, all rendered in 3D.

Of course, you’re not just here to admire the scenery. Once again the aim of the game is to build your construction business from the ground up, one project at a time. You’re tasked with building everything from bridges to office blocks. Choose from more than 50 specialized vehicles by famous manufacturers like Caterpillar, Liebherr and BELL. For the first time in the series, players are also granted access to vehicles made by Bobcat, CASE, BOMAG and the WIRTGEN group.

Another new addition is the cockpit view. Now, whether you’re laying foundations in your Liebherr drilling rig or landscaping in your T5990, you can switch to first-person view. Internal controls have been faithfully reconstructed for all the vehicles in Construction Simulator 3, giving you that added layer of authenticity and immersion. It’s also a helpful vantage point when it comes to delicate, accurate maneuvers.

Construction Simulator 3 is now available for purchase on the App Store and Google Play.
