The Endless & Expert Update brings easy and hard modes for Mini Motorways on November 3rd

From Press Release:

WELLINGTON, New Zealand – Oct. 24, 2022 – Mini Motorways, the award-winning minimalist strategy traffic management sim with more than four and a half million players from developer Dinosaur Polo Club, opens new roadways with The Endless & Expert Update – its biggest update so far. Expand the spectrum of ways to play from calming to challenging with two new game modes, Endless Mode and Expert Mode respectively, across Apple Arcade, Nintendo Switch, as well as PC and Mac via Steam on Thursday, Nov. 3, 2022.

Transform 15 iconic cities like Tokyo, Lisbon, and Los Angeles into a canvas of artistic roadwork and traffic efficiency in Endless Mode, the most requested community feature to date. Start a new city in Endless Mode or choose to continue after a Game Over for a chance to build the metropolis of your dreams. Play at your own speed without the threat of the city ending before you want it to, earning upgrades along the way by achieving milestones and building an efficient city.

Prepare to tackle new obstacles and a chance to beat the best in Expert Mode, inspired by Mini Metro’s Extreme Mode. Learn what commitment really means as road tiles and upgrades quickly become a permanent part of the city. Play strategically with access to the full suite of upgrades at the end of each week, but make sure to plan ahead as an upgrade cannot be selected twice in a row. Climb a brand new Expert Mode leaderboard on each map and compete against the highest tier of civil engineers for the top spot.

More quality-of-life improvements requested by the community will accompany The Endless & Expert Update. Discover a new multi-level manual zoom option to choose your preferred way to draw roads across the city on every platform, and make well-informed decisions with the ability to view your current city layout before choosing an upgrade at the end of each in-game week.

Since launch, Mini Motorways has seen nine updates with a grand total of 15 maps and many new features and upgrades. The community of Mini Motorways continues to encourage one another and foster connection all around the world, one road at a time, so to celebrate them, here are some updated accomplishments the game and our community have achieved together in their road-building endeavors:

  • Winner of the Audience Award at the Independent Games Festival 2022, as well as receiving nods in the Excellence in Audio and Excellence in Design categories.
  • 96% “Overwhelmingly Positive” rating on Steam across 13,000 reviews since launch.
  • Over 4 million Daily Challenges and 2 million Weekly Challenges taken on since their addition in late 2020 across all platforms.
  • Delivered more than 20 billion commuters to their destinations across all platforms.

Our team has been hard at work all year to bring Endless Mode and Expert Mode to life.
