April 30

Almost There!

In one week, the day we have all been looking forward to for so long will finally be here, and the Scandinavia map expansion for Euro Truck Simulator 2 will be released.

What took us so long? It's fair to admit that we have taken much longer to build it than we planned. We are pursuing a lot of goals at the same time, perhaps more than is healthy for a predictable, robust release schedule.

In the past two years, we have doubled the man-power in the company, but we have quadrupled the number of projects we try to handle at the same time. Some of the focus was traded for wider reach. We are committed to expanding ETS2 world with more areas, we have started working on American Truck Simulator, we have several people working on coach buses project, we have the long-term vision for World of Trucks to become the ultimate trucking meta-game with persistent massive-multiplayer online capabilities. We have experimented with virtual reality, we dedicated time to create better tools for the modders, we talk to way more transportation-related companies now about having their brands appear in our games. In the middle of this all, a core team of engineers is constantly working on upgrading our in-house game engine, to improve the graphics and sound capabilities, teach the AI new tricks, make the physics simulation more detailed, while introducing new features and tools for the content creation team - only to have them live through the pain of having to re-do parts of the work to upgrade to the new data formats and processes.

We thought that after over 15 years of making games, we were quite experienced, but switching from the mode of small company with a start-up mindset into a bigger multi-project team has not been an easy ride; obviously we still have a lot to learn. The good thing is, we are still around, stronger than ever, with multiple projects staffed by passionate development teams who want to see them through to completion, and even if the wait was long, we still managed to nurture a very loyal hardcore fan community motivating us in turn to keep pushing.

The next few days are going to be very hectic for us. We are still polishing the 1.17 update to be released early next week, we are working on zero-day update for Scandinavia to make sure it's as optimized as possible on release, we are preparing to re-launch the Euro Truck Simulator 2 website with all new presentation graphics, we have to orchestrate the release of multiple "SKUs" across many digital and retail channels, while loudly trumpeting the PR message that the Scandinavia DLC is better than sliced bread. (Not to speak about having to arrange for an open beta test of update 1.18 which will start immediately after Scandinavia release, wink wink, so that the Mercedes-Benz New Actros truck is introduced into the game at last without additional delays!)

What can you do for us to help spread the message and make Scandinavia a success? Add Scandinavia DLC to your wishlist on its Steam store page, check out and like the new official promotional trailer embedded below, follow us on our SCS Software Twitter account, like us on our Facebook page and make an account on World of Trucks if you haven't done so already, register on forum and give us feedback on the currently running Open Beta of ETS2 1.17 update, pester your favorite star YouTuber or streamer to take a look at our game!

Also, if you live nearby, come to Truckfest Peterborough to say "Hi!" and meet SCS Software's CEO Pavel Sebor in the DAF Showtrekker trailer - a presentation of DAF Euro 6 truck as featured in the latest version of Euro Truck Simulator 2 will be taking place there with Pavel as a guest.

“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.”

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.

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.

My wife was attempting to park the truck: she only needed to reverse straight for about 60 feet. I watched this spectacle for 20 minutes and laughed so hard that she threatened to divorce me.

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!

Looked away for a second to answer a text, wracked up about £2000 in car damage fines.

This game has taught me the importance of not texting and driving.

10/10.

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.

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.

The Simulator you expect to never like but somehow fall in love with, Euro Truck Simulator 2 lets you experience the world of cargo haulage right at your PC and it does it very well for the most part. You start with nothing, just taking low paying jobs in the quick job menu but gradually you will expand your company until you have your very own fleet of trucks and truckers all across Europe.

+Great graphics, the trucks and trailers in particular are very high quality
+Large map made even larger by the Going East DLC and it will be soon be made larger yet with a Scandinavia pack
+The system of building up your company works well and as you improve as a driver it becomes easier to improve your company
+It's a very relaxing game and is a perfect excuse to listen to music, podcasts or the radio
+You can play your music or a radio station through the game's menu
+Trucks have lots of customisation options
+Lots of different skills to improve to make yourself a better driver or to unlock new types of cargo
+The paint job packs are very high quality and in my opinion are worth their price (especially on sale)
+Plenty of great mods and it's very easy to install mods
+Controls are fully customisable
+Plenty of different cargo types, especially with the High Power pack and some of the skills you can unlock
+Several truck manufacturers with several truck designs each
+Seat heights, lights used etc are all customisable
+Has a photo mode with lots of different options allowing you to take plenty of nice shots of your truck
+The devs run events which give you the opportunity to unlock exclusive content through the World of Trucks website
+It's easy to progress through the game without taking loans from the bank which is good for players who want to maximise their rewards in-game

+/-Pretty hard to play with a mouse and keyboard but this is more than made up for with the controller and wheel support, if you don't have a controller or a wheel you might find this significantly more challenging to play

-The AI can be pretty poor sometimes, AI vehicles almost always travel faster than the speed limit, trucks in particular have acceleration faster than makes sense, cars will sometimes accelerate into you while you are turning rather than stop
-For the most part even if another vehicle causes a vehicle collision with you, you have to pay a fine for it
-Everything looks the same, i.e. there is not much variation with scenery
-Major cities do not resemble cities in anyway, they are very small and all cities have a similar layout (a repair shop, two distributors, somewhere to sleep and a garage)
-Major cities do not have gas/petrol stations so you have to rely on service stations on major highways for fuel
-Doesn't have different seasons which seems odd considering they run seasonal events, such as the Winter Holiday event (seeing as you had to deliver presents it would seem logical to have snow)
-Motorways/Highways feel empty at times and there are rarely traffic jams which takes away from the game's realism

Verdict:
8

Despite the game's flaws I find myself absolutely addicted to it and would recommend this to anyone, there's nothing quite like the open road especially when you're building a business empire.

I love this simulation, the graphics are awesome and SCS does a great job with updates to the game and I don't mean just fixing problems they also add a lot of new things to the game as well. I would consider the game to be of medium difficulty. Besides driving routes there is some managerial tasks in the game as well. Once you get some money going you can form your own company. Once you do this you will be buying garages and upgrading them, hiring drivers and also buying trucks and upgrading those as well if you wish. Besides hiring drivers you can also decide what the train in for their skills as well.
The map you drive consists mostly of central europe and the UK as well. Going east adds a few countries of course from the east. I would recommend this game to any simulator fan.

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 got this game in a bundle for close to nothing, the bundle had some other good titles in it, which led to this game being untouched for a long time. But one day I thought I would give it a try, I didn't own a wheel and I played with keyboard and mouse which was terribly boring. If you don't own a wheel - don't buy this game until you do.

But if you do own a wheel, or planning on buying one, you should definitely get this game. ETS2 is the best simulator game I've ever played, it's as relaxing as it should be, but if you are to relaxed you might end up with the truck up side down on the side road and a trailer full of damaged goods you need to pay for. This game has almost everything a real life of truck driver has, consequences such as big fines when you drive too fast or wreck any other veichle.

When you have enough money doing freelance jobs you can buy your own truck and start your own business and hire other drivers. You have a garage which you can upgrade along with more employees hired.

If you find the game abit repetetive and restricted - there is alot of mods you can install by downloading them from various websites, just google it, and no - this game do not support workshop modding, atleast not at the moment. However the mods are really easy to install and they can be (de)activated in your profile settings in the game menu.

I find this game really enjoyable and I think it's a must-buy if you own a wheel.

This is not goat simulator, or grass simulator, or bread simulator, or another "stupid" simulator. This is truck simulator, so your job is driving a truck, delivering stuff across Europe. So far as a casual gamer, I didn't find it hard to drive these trucks. Though the AI can be ridiculuos stupid.

So.. you started to get a job, using company's truck. Get some money to buy your own truck so you can start building your own empire.. ehh I mean company. And then buy a garage. Buy trucks and hire drivers. Buy garages in every town. Upgrade your garages. Manage your trucks, your drivers and your garages because you're the boss.

Also, I love how the developer works on this game. Not like *ahem* unity stuff.

You will feel bored 'cause of it's repetitiveness. But sometimes, you will back to drive your trucks again. And then bored, and then drive it again, and feel bored again. And again. Overall, 9/10. Recommended for fans of driving games. Sorry for bad english, **** my grammar <3

Best game I've ever contemplated playing. It's one of those games where your friends call you a "♥♥♥♥ing weirdo" for playing, or they question your life choices. Don't listen to them, because they are idiots. Yes, this game includes it all, from action to adventure, romance and lust, and even good vs. evil. Why am I even writing this? I should be playing this game.
