DLC Scandinavia signs in progress

Today we would like to show you a glimpse on an element of ETS2: Scandinavia assets that we are currently finalizing. Populating the game world with signs that look real and make sense is a task requiring hundreds of man-hours of careful work. We dedicate a lot of attention to this feature of the game, after all there are players who challenge themselves to journey the world without the use of built-in Route Advisor GPS unit, and we had better make sure it is possible.

For DLC Scandinavia, we want the raise the quality bar with signs as well. Check out a compilation of a subset of new navigation signs:

“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.”

This game is meditation, the thought-cleansing effect of driving a thousand kilometres along the highway cannot be understated. Occasionally poor AI choices behind the wheel may spike your blood pressure but overwhelmingly ETS2 is a relaxing thing to stick on after a rough day. And if that's not enough you can just drive into oncoming traffic in your indestructible death machine.

An alternate title for this game could be "Zen and the Art of Logistics".

Top-notch truck driving simulator. With support for TrackIR, wheels and pedals, this game has become a gem of the simulation genre.

Before having tried it, it's hard to see why this game will be so addicting. I suspect much of that feeling comes from the progression from a lowly truck driver not even owning a truck to a multi-country Logistics company owning a hundred trucks and employing as many drivers.

You "level up" various skills which improve the rewards you get from certain types of deliveries or open up more jobs such as longer distances or different categories of dangerous cargo.

Driving the trucks is a pleasure. It's surprisingly therapeutic driving from city to city, obeying the road rules rather than smashing things up like a madman. That said, if you disable the speed-limiter in options (90kph) you can get a bit crazy, getting as high as 150kph+ on some routes, a bit of a thrill considering the cargo you have in tow! Speed cameras will become your enemy though.

Unfortunately the AI of the other traffic can at times frustrate. In some instances such as in underpasses under freeways you can find intersections where the cars always fail to give way, probably because the intersection was not programmed correctly. Don't get me started on the kamikaze AI at roundabouts either.

In any case, this is the most fun you can have driving a truck in a game. Having a controller or steering wheel would be highly recommended, and if you have head-tracking equipment it's icing on the cake.

When I first saw it, I thought, "How could driving a truck around Europe be fun?"

Now, driving that beautiful truck around Europe is one of the things I look forward to doing everyday.

Much like my sentiments of Farming Simulator 2013, I fell in love with Euro Truck Simulator 2 and I have no idea why. Mundane job simulators are overwhelmingly garbage, but a select few (including ETS2) are surprisingly compelling.
There is no way I can think of to describe this game without sounding terribly drab. You’re a truck driver, and are starting your own shipping company. You have to drive according to the law, take rest breaks, buy fuel, pay for upkeep. There is nothing on paper that should be exceptional about this game, yet for what it is, Euro Truck Simulator 2 is disturbingly enjoyable. I recommend everyone to give it a try.

A LOT more fun than it should be.

1. Find Job 2. Gather trailer 3. Deliver trailer - Get paid... "i guess that can be fun...?"

Maybe it's the idea of creating and expanding a business. Maybe it's that wierd infatuation people have with locomotives . Maybe it's just a cool job that works perfect for an easy going simulator.

It's just good fun. Jump in and out, no hassle. Simple and relaxing.

Your only objective is to create a successful business and ultimately: earn money. Money buys accesssories and upgrades for your trucks, along with recruiting drivers and buying garages. Naturally your truck is the whole game, so customizing and improving it is your primary motivation. Working towards unlocks is a major incentive to keep you engaged.

There is a also a huge community with tons of fantastic mods to try out. They're easy to use and the content is full of good work. There are enough mods to improve upon nearly every aspect of the game.
There are a lot of sites with a lot of re-uploads and out-of-date crap, so It took me a while to sift through to find the ones i wanted. But it was totally worth it, I have an awesome menagerie of mods - I will share them if requested.

Its an otherwise pretty dull scenario for a game, there isnt a whole lot more underneath than what's delivered at face value.
There isnt anything truly unique or special about it. A European truck driving simulator, you shouldnt think much of it...

But even if you have a remote interest, it might be enough to get some real enjoyment out of this.

Quality of the game put all other simulation games to shame. Because of its realistic approach, Euro truck simulator 2 is a awesome simulator. Thanks to the Prism3D engine, the driving looks a lot better than before. Anyway EU2 is not for everyone but if you enjoyed trucking simulators than you've come to the right place!

Gameplay:
+ Lots of licensed trucks. - DAF, IVECO, MAN, RENAULT, SCANIA and VOLVO trucks officially licensed, Although there is a not officially licensed company. (Mercedes-Benz changed to Majestic)
+ A vast world to explore. - Hours of gameplay for fans of truck simulators.
+ Customization. - Unlock a huge range of customization options, from cabin and engine to interiors and paint job.
+ Management. - Buy garages, recruit drivers and create your own company.
+ Built-in Music player. - listening your favorite musics or internet radio.
+ Awesome physics.

The atmosphere and graphics:
+ Excellent UI. - Simple, clear and readable fonts on wide range of screen sizes in any devices.
+ Stunning realistic world.
+ Realistic day-night cycle.
+ Quite nice landscapes.
+ Good texture quality.
+ Beautiful 3D graphics.
+ Incredible detailed trucks and interiors.
+ Good music and sound.

Performance:
+ Running pretty well and smooth on a mid-range PC.
+ Stable.
+ Almost bug free.

Additional:
+ Moddable.
- No steam cloud.

This is game is weird because although you would think its boring and just driving trucks its really not. The multiplayer mod makes this a blast to play with friends and besides, Who doesn't want to travel over Europe with friends, its even better with the going east DLC since you can explore even more of Poland and i really can't wait for the Scandinavian update :)


This became my addiction for a short while but now i have no one to play it with.

Would deliver loads of cargo across Europe again, I r8 10/10

Listening to Franz Ferdinand while driving through Austria is the funnest thing you could do in this game. The ability to do that gives the game a solid 10/10.

I, I have never had this much fun in months.
I got this game today and i just HAD to write a review.
Day 1- Mom said go find a job.
Found an AD for a truck driver job.
Called got the Job. Got paid 3,000 euros the first day.

Day 2- Woke up thinking "why should i get paid half and work using a company's truck".
Went to work as usual and got paid 3,000. Commited lots of driving law infringements. Ended up getting a call from the bank that i am in debt and that i have negative funds in my accounts. (They were nice enough to give me funds to sort things out).

Day 3- Said "Screw it, i'm buying my own truck"
Went to the bank, got a 100,000 Euros loan (Thanks Merkel) and bought a volvo (Should change license plate to Diretide soon).
Now i make 8,000 euros a day. I still sleep inside a truck tho (Don't worry it's warm).

What's next? Well i will probably save 180,000 euros to buy a garage and hire some employees and hit the road daily as usual. Life on the road never ends.

Thank for everyone at SCS Software who worked on this.
10/10 Game totally recommended!

Euro truck is an interesting game. The first time i played it, i didn't understand it. After playing it some more, i realised that it is one of the most engaging games i have played. For me, driving in a truck for countless minutes on end was quite boring but the deeper you go, the more there is to it. Leveling up and earning cash became more and more rewarding. As you begin to build up a fleet of trucks and drivers, the game becomes more exciting and engaging. Building a company and driving long distances is really what this game is about. If you enjoy the game you will probably try to install mods, addons and large maps that can sometimes even be a whole country. They have also added a radio in the game that can give you actual live music from real stations around the world! Its a sensible game with a user-friendly interface that anyone withought any previous trucking knowledge can play around with.

Now to the negatives... The AI is just unbearable, having to bear with stupid drivers is a huge let down and ruins the realism the game tries so hard to deliver. [This will probably be updated in the near future so dont worry too much] Cargo choices are quite broad but the game somehow chooses to give you the same load frequently. One of the largest flaws of the game is head turning, i say this because everytime you look right or left at a turn. As a result you won't be able to achieve proper speed of decision-making. Although there are many more flaws, they are mostly tiny and you usually wont realize them.

I guess what i am trying to say is that it has great potential as a game directed towards very particular group of gamers and the team (consisting of only afew people) have put a great load of effort into it. If you ever see this game on a good sale i recomend picking it up and trying it for a few hours.
