Video game puts you in driver’s seat of a Great Lakes freighter
Players can drive lake freighters the full 750 miles from Duluth to Port Huron in the upcoming Great Lakes Simulator game
A new game set to release this December will put players into the driver’s seat of a Great Lakes freighter and simulate the journey from Duluth to Port Huron, Michigan, according to a news release from video game service Steam. Players will be able to sail the full length of both Lake Huron and Lake Superior at 1-to-1 scale.
The game was created by Jason Dial and Digital Light, the creators of Suez Canal Simlulator and Panama Canal on Steam, the online video game platform.
With the at-scale speeds, this journey will take players a few days to complete, though there is an option to compress time.
The journey will take players past some of the Great Lakes’ noteworthy locations including well-known lighthouses. The game has simple controls to ensure a short learning curve.
The game is set to release on Steam on Dec. 15.
