A touch of Rocket League in Euro Truck Simulator 2

The guys at Psyonix have pushed the pedal to the metal again, and their just-updated Rocket League is once again attacking the top positions the Steam Top Sellers chart, congratulations!

A lot of truck driving players are not locked into just the sim niche. Looking at RL and ETS2, you could hardly find two driving games that are more different, and yet, there is quite an overlap between the player bases. People are having fun, and that's great, no matter which game they choose to play.


So if you happen to be a fan of both games, it's a matter of fortunate timing that today, we are bringing you a couple of Rocket League toys to install into your Euro Truck 2 cabin. As covered in a recent announcement, these include the iconic Rocket League ball and the Octane car to decorate your dashboard with. Have fun!

PAX East

In 1998, two guys have started an innocent webcomic focused on video games and the games culture. Fast forward to 2016, and Penny Arcade is a massive cultural phenomenon of its own. It is spawning four huge gaming expos every year, and here we are, showing American Truck Simulator at PAX East in Boston, MA.





The scale of the expo is overwhelming, even though not quite as giant as Germany's Gamescom and fortunately not as loud. A tiny team from SCS is on the showfloor as well, manning two demo seats with American Truck Simulator, and definitely not ducking under the pressure as the crowds keep pushing by.





It is our first time showing the game at a public event since it was released. It is great to see the line of people always waiting for their turn behind the wheel! We have met several dedicated fans of our truck sims with hundreds or even thousands of hours spent in the world of Euro Truck or American Truck, and enjoyed the conversation with them (yeah, we know, we should hurry up with Arizona!). It is also quite an inspiration to see first-time players experimenting with the game, trying foolish things, or some taking it very seriously and driving super carefully.





We would like to thank our publishing partners at http://www.imgn.pro/ for inviting us to participate at their expo booth. They have managed to strike some great partnerships for the ATS demo stations. The game is running very smooth at 400% scaling on the XoticPC computers powered by NVidia GTX 980 3D cards, and visitors seem to be having great fun driving the big rigs while sitting in Playseat gaming seats equipped with Logitech G29 steering wheels. Cannot get much better really. Thanks guys!

“With its stellar gameplay and presentation, Euro Truck Simulator 2 set a new standard for the simulation genre.”
95/100 – Gaming Nexus

“There are titles in the simulation market which can be sold on the novelty factor alone, but tend to be disappointing games. Euro Truck Simulator 2 is not one of them, it is strangely cathartic, engaging and relaxing.”

honestly i don't even enjoy playing video games anymore. I feel so dead and empty inside all the time, nothing gives me any pleasure at all, the only reason i play anymore is as a distraction from the hole inside my heart. I come home from work and have nothing else to do because I'm so exhausted, so I'm just like "what game should I play?"

Euro Truck Simulator 2, every time.

Anything else requires too much commitment, I have to learn how to play the game and all the meta which isn't worth it since I couldn't possibly enjoy anything at this point, but this is just comfy as ♥♥♥♥ and immerses me in a world where I'm far more successful and own a small trucking company. I have 3 lil truckers in my company and i like to think about who they are/what they're doing and that's half the fun. When I fire people, I like to imagine myself pulling them into my office at the garage like "Cameron, uhh, noticed you brought home a profit of only around 300 euros 3 trips in a row and then... huh... yeah, it looks like you couldn't even find a job and charged me 588 euros for maintenance and fuel? I mean, honestly, I've already hired your replacement, Jeff. Why don't you finish the route you're scheduled for and hand over the Volvo to Jeff. I'm sure he'll do a better job than you, you piece of ♥♥♥♥."

EDIT: due to the rising popularity of this review, a surprising number of worthless NEETS have somehow found it appropriate to send me friend requests to ask if I will buy them a copy of this game. I have no idea where you guys get off thinking this is an okay or normal thing to do. It's rude enough to directly ask a friend to give you a gift, but it's a whole 'nother level of delusional entitlement to think it's okay to ask a stranger to spend their money to buy you a video game. If you were considering adding me to do this, try adding me on Skype instead so I can make eye contact with you while you kill yourself.

Most of my friends would look at me playing Euro Truck simulator and say "Why would you play that boring game??". The thing about this game is that it is so relaxing, but at the same time very enjoyable.

Think about coming home from a tough day at work or school, just depressed or tired. Just hop in your truck, turn on the radio, and diseapear into the land of the calm.

I definately recommend this game. But as every game, it's not for everyone. If you want a relaxing game, buy it straight away!

In the real life :
I took 2 hours a day driving to my office, get payment every month... and I'm going mad

In ETS2 :
I delivered tomatoes and took 16 hours in the road, hitting a lot of cars, paying fare for my speed, and get minus payment because i need to pay for my failure machine .... I'm Happy


10/10
Would like to sleep in the gas station again

ETS2 = Worth every penny

I did a review before, Back then i had 17 Hours playtime. Now i gained a lot more hours on it :D
Back then my Review was not very detailed and since then Euro Truck Simulator 2 got updated constantly and has much more to offer by now, i decided to redo my review. So let's begin shall we? :3
(For those who don't want to read a book and expect a review in form of an IGN Joke - 10/10 would relax again)

The General Idea of the Game/Whats it about
The easiest answer would obviously be "Driving Trucks" B-But wait! That's not all there is to know silly. This game is in all reality a "Relax and listen to a Podcast/Music while you drive Simulator". This game is about you, your truck and an open Europe to travel across. How you do it, what trucks you will drive, what cargo you will haul or the places you will see is all up to you.

Gameplay

Game Start and Quick Jobs
The game starts you off as a hired driver. You have no money, no truck and only a rusty empty garage to work with. So what do you do? You work your butt off with "Quick Jobs" In these jobs you will get put inside a truck and just drive to the destination. In this starting phase of the game your goal should be to make as much Money as possible and of course to level up (More to the level system below).

Freight Market and your own Truck
After you are level 6 or 7, which is about 2 hours in the game, you finally have enough Money to buy your first truck!
(You could also take a bank loan and do it faster. This is where the game starts to become fun and somewhat addicting. There you sit. In your own little truck, in your rusty garage. What now? Now you can start making the big money. Instead of getting hired for an apple and a hug, you will now be paid directly by the Companies. All that freight money goes into your pocket. So you select a freight from the "Freight Market" Unlike "Quick Jobs" you will not just spawn in place. You have to physically drive to the loading spot. So don't choose something on the other side of the Country because you will have to drive there. This will be your life from now on. You pick a job, you drive to the loading dock, pick it up, and deliver it to the destination. Then you will get paid, and based on how you did you will get rated with XP to level up.

The Level System:
As mentioned many many times above. The game has a level system. You earn XP to spend in the following categories to unlock freight and boost income.

Skill Description
ADR Lets you haul more dangerous cargo like gasoline or toxic stuff
Long Distance Lets you take on jobs with a longer distance which will be higher paid
High Value Cargo Expensive equipment such as diggers and forklifts
Fragile Cargo Glass, Cars, Electronics and so on
Just-in-time Delivery Deliveries with a shorter but more rewarding deadline
Ecodriving Makes your trucks consume lesser fuel

In addition to your own skillset, your hired drivers will also level up in these. Which makes a level 30 driver far more productive than a rookie. Hired drivers brings us to the next aspect: Management

The Management Aspect
After you made some Money, leveled up, bought more trucks and upgraded + bought new garages. You should start hiring drivers on your own. They will deliver cargo for you, just like you do. You equip them with a truck and they will bring in money. At first very little, up to 1000€. But soon you will have lots of drivers, and the higher their level, the more money they will make you. In the late game you will have so much money that you don't know what to do with it. Which is one of my biggest concern about the game. Once you reach a certain point you will just never run out of money. You will have millions and millions. Which makes it so the late game is literally only about the driving aspect. Which is not a major problem for me, but it might be for you, so please keep that in mind.

Tuning
As your level grows you will unlock more trucks and more parts for you to customize your truck with. You can even install mods that add more tuning parts. (Like you can install mods for basically everything in this game) You can also upgrade the trucks of your hired drivers, though that doesn't really do much since you won't see them on the road. :D

Graphics, Audio and Performance

Graphics
Don't expect Crysis. But the game looks beautiful enough in my opinion. The weather effects just got overhauled and I catch myself sitting there thinking "What an amazing View, lets take a Screenshot of that" far more often than in a lot of other Games. The Truck models look beautiful and they are all fully licensed. The Dashboards all are functional and you really feel the love SCS (the developer) has put into them. I had some odd Shadow bugs earlier on but it seems they have been fixed since then

Audio
This is one of the strongest aspects of this game. To be fair, SCS improved quite a lot here as well, compared to when the game was first released. From the sound of rain dripping on your cabin, to the rumbling of a thunderstorm, the sounds are just beautiful. The trucks themselves sound amazing! And not just the engine sounds, also the little levers in the truck itself has sound, and it just helps to immerse you in this game so much. Only the beeping sound. when you reverse from inside the cabin is way too loud in my personal opinion. I have never used a sound Mod since playing this game. I know they exist, and of course I use them for modded trucks but i never used one that changes the original sounds, but i just never felt the need to do so.

Performance
Now i have to say my PC is one of the weakest. I'm still using an old ATI HD4650 and a dual core processor, but I can get the game to a steady 30-35 FPS (20 in cities) on Medium Settings. If you use mods, especially big ones, such as the ProMods Map or the TSM Map, that number will obviously decrease, but I'm very happy with that aspect of the game.

Pros and Cons + Verdict

Pros
+ Fun and Relaxing Driving
+ Fully Licensed Trucks
+ Customization
+ Big and Active Modding Community incl. a MP Mod
+ Decent AI
+ Amazing Audio
+ Great Performance
+ Good Looking
+ Full Steering Wheel and Controller Support

Cons
- Late Game far too Easy
- Managment Aspect not deep enough

Verdict
Its one of my favorite driving games and the fact that I can only find 2 flaws with it makes me give it a strong 95%. If you are into trucks, or just want a relaxing open world driving game, get it.
