Our most recent World of Trucks event is over today. Almost 82K participants finished the 12 deliveries required to complete it. That's a huge number of hours invested in the game, in addition to people staying on the regular gameplay or experimenting with the many cool mods available.

It's great to see so many screenshots and videos of you flashing the new paint job and cabin accessories earned during the event.



As promised, we are also ready to announce the two lucky participants who will get tickets of their choice to any of the upcoming FIA ETRC races of the 2018 season, plus VIP treatment at the hands of SCS Software's On the Road crew there. The random generator script has crunched all the players who have completed the event and these two nicks popped out:

  • Jarniekieboy
  • Gonga1967
Congratulations! Please get in touch with us to claim your reward. Please check out your World of Trucks profile page and follow the instructions which we've sent to you to claim your reward.

We are already looking forward to launching a new event for American Truck Simulator players. Tentatively, we are looking at launching it early next week.

This is a follow-up to our previous article about new industries coming to the Beyond the Baltic Sea map expansion for Euro Truck Simulator 2. We would like to share more insights into the variety of industrial installations that you will encounter while on deliveries; these are just some of the custom "prefabs" that our 3D model team is creating.

You can see parts of production chain buildings, like a material store at a concrete batching plant, or a paper mill along with a furniture factory. Advanced engineering industry is represented by the locomotive service/producing factory prefab.

It is clear that the truck sim fan community is enjoying our World of Trucks events a lot. The ongoing ETS2 Start Your Engines event has already been completed by over 70,000 players!

Please keep in mind that the event ends in one week, on June 17th.

Thousands and thousands of new deliveries are finished every day, and you are sending us a lot of beautiful screenshots from your journeys. We have a lot of fun retweeting your pictures on SCS Software's Twitter.



On the Editor's pick section on World of Trucks, we are also overwhelmed by the number of great pictures added all the time, thank you!

The citizens of Portugal celebrate their big day on Sunday, and we thought that it provides a nice opportunity for us to offer them something to decorate their trucks with - Euro Truck Simulator 2 - Portuguese Paint Jobs Pack.




We know that the players of Iberia would want us to give them more than just truck cosmetics. We strongly believe that Euro Truck Simulator 2 still has enough life in it that eventually, we will also get to build a new map DLC comprising Portugal and Spain. Just please have patience with us, we keep strengthening our map design teams to cover more territory in both our games faster and better, but there is no denying that creating our huge worlds is a project that will take years. With your support, we are here to make it happen.

In a few days, our SCS On the Road team will be packing and setting on a new journey. Destination: Hungaroring! We are joining the fun at the 2nd race of the FIA European Truck Racing Championship season on this famous Hungarian circuit.



We are trying something new for this event, and we are really looking forward to it. Our core team will be complemented by János and Gábor, two very experienced Euro Truck Simulator players and long-time passionate fans of SCS Software games. This should help us bridge the language barrier, and make it easier for us to deal with input and feedback from the local players.

Who knows, maybe YOU would be helping us on one of the following events? ;-)

As usual, everyone who's going to come to the races will have a chance to visit our Sim Trailer. Stop by and try our games on our tuned 4D Motion Seats or have a chat with our crew, and perhaps even get a piece of our cool merchandise to remember the day.

If you can't make it Hungaroring on 16th or 17th of June, keep an eye on our social media channels. We will be sharing some moments, pictures, and videos during the weekend.

To illustrate the atmosphere of the roadshow, here is a couple of images from two weeks ago, when our sim trailer traveled to the first race of the FIA ETRC 2018 season at Misano World Circuit, Italy. It was a really hot and sunny weekend and we all had a great time with tons of visitors interested in our work. You can find even more photos if you visit our SCS Software Facebook profile.

A small team from Krone Trailers visited SCS Software's office to check on the progress of our work on implementing their trailers into Euro Truck Simulator 2. We have spent two days with our guests to explain and demonstrate the process of vehicle creation and discuss the challenges ahead of us when building the new DLC while aiming to push the quality bar up again. Their camera guy took the trip rather seriously and recorded a lot of footage.


During our visit to Krone manufacturing plant a couple of months ago, we have been provided with tons of high-quality reference material and access to the actual trailers in the manufacturing plant. It gives us a chance to portray them at an unprecedented level of detail. On top of it, this is going to be our pilot project into implementing new cool trailer-related features into our games! ;) As a result, we have a massive amount of work to do to make sure all the pieces of the puzzle fit together. We really hope that you will appreciate our effort eventually, even if it's a test of patience as it takes a lot of time for the team to pull this all off.

The team from Krone has created really nice video reports from the visit, and we think they may also be very interesting for our fans. There are two different versions of the videos, one in English, the other in German, but they are definitely not identical. The commentary, as well as some of the things shown, are different.

Our work on Krone Trailers DLC continues at full pace. We are not yet ready to announce a specific release date other than "later this year," but we hope that these videos will serve as a nice teaser for the project.

It is really exciting when major manufacturers from transportation industry pay closer attention to our games, and we certainly hope that our ties and involvement with the industry are going to further improve. Our SCS On the Road team (see their calendar) working "in the field" is helping us attract attention, not just from the numerous visitors of various events, but also from industry decision-makers in attendance. Our currently ongoing World of Trucks special event (have you given it a try yet?) is a clear indication that our games can connect the world of simulation games and truck industry really well.

Shameless plug at the end to promote the work of our friends at Krone Trailers media team: Fans of their production should consider checking out their social media channels including YouTubeFacebookTwitter, and Instagram. They are definitely very professionally managed and full of interesting content.

We are excited by all the positive feedback coming back from the fan community regarding the comprehensive Euro Truck Simulator 2 Update 1.31. You must be wondering already what we have in store for Update 1.32, so let's take a peek!

We know that one of the items very high on the community's wishlist is that we put some attention on older parts of the game world. We are happy to reveal that a small but passionate team of map designers is already working on retouching and refreshing parts of our base game map to bring it up to or at least close to our current standard of visual quality as present in the latest map DLC. The oldest regions we built years ago need the most care, so our choice of where to start was clear: Germany.




We cannot redo the whole country in one quick step, though. The land area is huge, comparable to any newer map DLC. For comparison, we are in the process of pumping well over 30 man-years of effort into our upcoming Beyond the Baltic Sea DLC! We do not want slow down our progress on new content for ETS2 nor ATS, quite the contrary. So we need to dedicate a separate team within SCS that would be committed to refreshing the older map content. All in all, it is definitely going to take considerable time across multiple game updates to go over not just Germany but to eventually revisit the whole of core game map. And by the time we are done, we may just as well start with the older DLC ;)




As you can see in the screenshots, the touches to the German autobahns are considerable. Some cities are altered in a major way, some will only get a bit of polish for now with new textures, vegetation, and cleanups of the worst visual sins. Again, the changes in Update 1.32 should only be considered "stage 1" with several more steps to follow, as the team's focus will gradually shift from the north towards the south of the region. The results of all this work will be a part of regular game updates, available for all existing owners of ETS2 for free of course.




We have one more related cool picture for you on Euro Truck Simulator 2 Facebook page, the result of a little teaser we were doing on the page today. Make sure to check it out!

As SCS Software continue to add to Europe with Euro Truck Simulator 2 (the next expansion focuses on the Baltics), older parts are starting to look a little scrappy. The latest update added more life to its roads but now SCS are thinking bigger. They’re currently working on revamping Germany for a free update overhauling its autobahns, touching up its cities, replanting its forests, and generally making it a nicer place to chill out. This process will take some time but SCS today shared a few peeks at the impressive improvements. They’ll overhaul more countries later too. (more…)

The SCS Sim Trailer and crew are getting ready for the first round of FIA European Truck Racing Championship 2018. Mighty roars of the racing trucks will sound at the famous Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli in Italy from 26th to 27th of May. And we'll be there!



Becoming a part of the roadshow for the 2017 season of the championship was the first experience of such kind for us, but it has proved to be a great opportunity to meet with our fans as well as to introduce our truck sim games to new audiences. We have fallen in love with the unique feeling of such events, the massive crowds, and all the diesel beauties and mighty trucks.

Let's give in to a bit of nostalgia with a short flashback of FIA ETRC 2017 events as seen through our eyes, and a teaser of new things to come!

Out first stop will be in Misano, May 26-27. As always, if you plan to stop by, you can look forward to meeting our crew, trying our motion rigs, and perhaps even getting answers to some tough questions. ;)

To celebrate the start of the FIA ETRC 2018 season and our participation on the travelling circus accompanying the race series on eight circuits in eight countries, today we are launching a new cool World of Trucks event!

As you can see in the image below, we did our homework through the winter months, including inviting the iconic Pace Pete to visit SCS Software's office for a little chitchat.



Truck racing motorsport is attracting huge crowds around Europe, with over 400k visitors showing up to see the races during a season. The racing teams need to be very organized and well supplied to last through the season. All in all, a huge amount of various goods and parts must be moved all around the continent for the events to happen! And now you can lend your helping hand, too, at least virtually, by participating in the new event. To celebrate in proper shape, we have added a special trailer to the game for the duration of the event, sporting the marks of the main sponsors and organizers of 2018 FIA ETRC races: Krone Trailers, Goodyear, and FIA ETRC.



If you'd like to participate in the event, please read carefully the detailed info listed below. Everyone who will succeed and pass the event rules will be rewarded with five in-game items in the motifs of racing or decorated with the colors and logos of the main sponsors of this year's championship.

Event Rules
Deliver Racing Components to at least 12 different cities. Only deliveries over 200km are eligible.

Rewards
  • Paint Job with a racing motif - "Slipstream"
  • Cabin accessory/toy - "Pace Pete Bobblehead"
  • ETRC Window Pennant
  • Goodyear Window Pennant
  • KRONE Window Pennant

And that's not all! At the conclusion of the event, we'll randomly pick two lucky participants who will each get a very special reward - two tickets of their choice to any one of the upcoming rounds of the FIA ETRC 2018 season. Plus a bit of merch, with ETS2/ATS and ETRC cap as a bonus.




As you probably remember from the previous events, we are taking advantage of Steam's Inventory infrastructure to "drop" the rewards to you. As a consequence, the individual items can be traded or even sold through Steam. Just remember that if you get rid of a particular Inventory item, you will no longer be able to see it in the game's Upgrade Shop and equip your truck with it.

This event will last until the 17th of June, 2018. Have fun, and see you at the races!
