Surrounded by the warm waters of the Mediterranean Sea between France and Italy is the island of Corsica, best known for its stunning scenery and mountainous areas.

We are excited to announce that you will be able to explore this beautiful island for yourself as a free addition for the Vive la France ! map expansion in the upcoming 1.36 update.



The Island of Corsica in Euro Truck Simulator 2 features 6 cities (Ajaccio, Calvi, Ile Rousse, Bastia, Porto Vecchio and Bonifacio), a number of landmarks, sleepy villages and an atmosphere similar to regions surrounding. And as with other islands, the biggest road you'll find here is a motorway. So if you like meander climbs on rural roads surrounded by vineyards leading to spectacular coastal viewpoints, Corsica is the place for you!

To get there, you can take a ferry from Marseille to the picturesque town of Porto Vecchio, or - if you're already an islander on Sardinia, you can jump boat in Sassari and get off in Ajaccio, the biggest city on the island, also serving as its capital.

Looking forward to it? Because Corsica is just around the corner!

We are only one week in with the World of Trucks Pink Ribbon Charity event and the community response has simply blown us away. So far we’ve reached over 730,000 deliveries of Pink Ribbon goods and there’s still 12 more days to go.

https://steamcommunity.com/games/227300/announcements/detail/1604895289728391993

Our #PinkMyTruck hashtag has been used for more than 2200 tweets and 420 Instagram posts, and hundreds of hours of the video has been uploaded to YouTube and Twitch with hundreds of posts on Facebook. We’ve also seen some really cool Pink Ribbon Charity paint jobs made by the community of modders, and have been inspired by the impressive online multiplayer convoy events, organised by the online Virtual Trucking Companies, in support of the Pink Ribbon Charity event – you guys rock! And some of you even gifted the Pink Ribbon Charity Pack to fellow players! What a fantastic contribution and a good deed with a direct impact on both sides!



The event is far from over, yet we are already delighted and very proud to report that we’ve so far managed to secure more than $20,000 from the Pink Ribbon Charity Pack DLC sales and we will be sending out the first cheques to the designated Breast Cancer charities very soon.

We would like to take this opportunity to state again how much we support breast cancer awareness, research and patient support. We'd like to emphasize how important regular doctor visits and self-examinations are in fighting this terrible disease. By organising this event we have discovered many support groups around the world that all state the same message, which is to not be shy about checking yourself. Early diagnosis is the best defence.



We're proud to be part of this campaign alongside many other advocates who're bringing awareness to this important cause - such as NHS England, MetLife, Renault Trucks, MAN Trucks & Bus, DAF Trucks, Chevrolet, Mack Trucks and many others. And of course, a big thank you to every single person who have joined in and shared a screenshot or video under the #PinkMyTruck hashtag!

We hope you will join us tomorrow, Wednesday the 9th October, for our 2nd special charity stream which will be broadcast LIVE on Twitch and Steam with SCS team members, Alex (LondonLad), Nemiro, and Pavel Sebor himself from 15:00 UTC (17:00 CEST). They'll be updating you on the progress, participating with jobs from the ongoing event, and handing out some more giveaways including Steam keys and one Tobii Eye Tracker 4C device!



Last but not least, if you weren't already aware of it, our e-shop is also doing its part in the fight against breast cancer. 100% of any income from selling the "TO TRUCKERS WITH LOVE" T-shirts will also be donated to the selected Charities, starting with the Breast Cancer Research Foundation and the Alliance of Women with Breast Cancer. We will be adding to that list soon!

Before a time of GPS and travel maps, landmarks played an important role for travelers. These places of interest were used as a way of knowing where they are, and which way to go. Thanks to today's technology we no longer have to rely on this method of travel. However, these landmarks still stand as a unique monument of history's past and times present.


In our upcoming map expansion Road to the Black Sea for Euro Truck Simulator 2, you will discover many landmarks on your journey. From impressive historic castles to beautiful cathedrals and remarkable bridges, you never know what you might discover next on your journey through these new lands.


Make sure to add Road to the Black Sea for ETS2 to your Steam Wishlist to be the first to be notified of its release!

Pink ribbons, and the colour pink in general, are most commonly seen during the (International) Breast Cancer Awareness Month, an annual health campaign organised by major breast cancer charities every October to increase awareness and raise funds to fight the disease.



Inspired by truck manufacturers and truckers from around the world, this October we are proud to be joining the Pink Ribbon Breast Cancer Awareness campaign! We’re asking the community to join us in supporting this great cause by delivering Pink Ribbon goods across Europe and the USA in our international Pink Ribbon Charity World of Trucks event.


To further help spread the word, we've created our very own Pink Ribbon Charity Pack DLC for this event. We will be donating 100% of the Pink Ribbon Pack DLC proceeds to reputable Breast Cancer research and awareness charities, starting with the Breast Cancer Research Foundation and the Alliance of Women with Breast Cancer. We hope that the list of charities we contribute to will grow as we collect more money over time.

We look forward to seeing your screenshots and videos of you supporting this special charity event. In whatever way you are participating, make sure to tag us and use the hashtag #PinkMyTruck across our social media platforms (TwitterInstagramFacebook)

Everyone probably knows what's coming - at least everyone who saw any part of our hint and tease campaign on social media coordinated with Renault Trucks. So let's say it out loud - the wait is over! There were many hurdles to overcome to get here, but from this moment on, the Renault Trucks T Range is officially available in Euro Truck Simulator 2!



We absolutely loved your reactions since the first teaser post and we'd like to confirm that, as many of you had wished, the T Range in the game has a wide variety of configuration options. It comes with 2 cabins, 6 chassis, 6 engines, 7 transmissions, 5 interiors and a load of accessories! The T Range will be the third member of the Renault Trucks family in our game. Just as it is a true game-changer in the real-world, we foresee many Renault Trucks fans making the T Range their primary truck right away!









The T Range comes as a free addition for every owner of the game; if you update the game on Steam (which may or may not require a restart for some users), it will automatically be downloaded. Be sure to opt-out of any beta branches first!

The screenshots and video here are just appetizers for those who can't play right away, as we're sure that those who can will be sitting in their very own brand-new T Range pretty soon! Those still not persuaded to try it out should watch our stream (on Twitch and Steam) with Alex (LondonLad) and Oscar at 15:00 UTC (17:00 CET) and they'll change your minds!

From cities filled with culture, industries, and history to tiny villages nestled in the mountains. The Trakya region of Turkey is the gateway to Istanbul, which is Europe's largest city by population, and also the largest city among our sim-games. As you travel towards the city you will begin to see a mix of past and present infrastructure, such as historical landmarks found near rising modern apartment buildings.


With people comes the need for work and industry. With manufacturing being one of the country's biggest economies, you will be sure to find a range of interesting and unique deliveries to and from these cities.


We are excited to bring these new regions to the world of Euro Truck Simulator 2 for you to explore. Make sure to add Road to the Black Sea to your Steam wishlist to be the first to know when it releases! But until then yolunuz açık olsun.

We know how much drivers in our community love customising their trucks. From creating company paintjobs to cabin accessories, we love seeing how you personalise your rigs!

We can't wait to see how your Actros looks using this latest tuning pack, so be sure to tag us on social media with your photos. Which parts of your truck will you tune-up first?

We have been super busy in the recent days. Our On The Road team had to split up to visit five different countries on three continents in the past two weeks! Finally we are back in the office today to prepare the summary of both the Goodyear event and the community screenshot contest.

It is clear that our World of Trucks events engage and entertain the player community, we have been in fact surprised by the level of participation. We were glad to see that nobody complained much when we extended the event to give people more time to complete all the event jobs. The numbers are in, and so many people finished 10 jobs and earned the achievement!



For the community screenshot contest, there were over 2,000 valid entries (and much more photos actually, as many of you posted more than one). Many of the shots were absolutely stunning! Same as with our previous competitions, judging those entries was a pretty hard task because there's always way more beautiful pictures than there are slots for the winners.



Nevertheless, it had to be done and here are the winners! Feel free to express your love for these pictures too; the names are hyperlinked, so you are welcome to click on their names and give them a like!
All the winners above will be contacted shortly via the same platform they entered through; if you're one of them, do check your messages and choose your reward from our e-shop!

Thank you all for participation in Goodyear event. Until next time!

We are always excited and humbled at the same time when we hear that our games have profoundly and positively affected the lives of our fans. Marcus Armstrong sent us his story:

#Discussions_QuoteBlock_Author
To everyone at SCS Software, especially those dealing with Euro Truck Simulator and American Truck Simulator. I just wanted to say a massive thank you to everyone involved, even though you have kind of lost a player.

I use to be an avid fan of the series playing Euro Truck Simulator, UK Truck Simulator and then both Euro Truck Simulator 2 and American Truck Simulator, investing in steering wheels, Track IR and gear sticks for my PC.

Two years ago the company I worked for had been turning in a direction I was not overly comfortable with. I felt that it was moving away from its core values and what defined it as unique and I started considering an exit strategy. This exit strategy becomes more important when, out of a team of three, one of us had to take voluntary redundancy.

As the youngest team member in my mid-thirties, I decided that I would be in the best position to get started a new career, a career in different industry as I was a little burnt out doing what I was doing. I needed to be able to get into an industry where I could retrain quickly and earn what I was earning before, or more. I ended up, within a two month period, passing both HGV Class 2 and then Class 1 license. By the third month, I had a job with R.T. Keedwell which I have been doing for the last couple of years, driving a Mercedes Actros MP4 (which I am currently writing this from a truck stop for the night, good ol' Hotel Mercedes).



So why am I thanking you guys and gals at SCS? Well out of several industries I had been trained in; Web Dev, 3D Animation, Administration and Finance, it was ETS2 and ATS which I had enjoyed playing so much that I decided to take out a loan to cover the training costs and then base not just my career on, but my lifestyle as well, I am a Trucker (even grew the beard). I'm currently racking up 2500km a week driving all over the UK where no two days are quite the same and I meet countless people from the companies we haul for and other drivers.

SCS, you gave me the inspiration to venture out into a career I had never would have thought of and now love doing. So again, a huge heartfelt thank you and keep up the good work!

Marcus A.
Trucker nameplate "4 1/2 Days"

Thank you, Marcus, we are so happy for you! We wish you all the best and safe returns from your hauls.

Marcus is actually an Actros driver as you could notice from the text and photo. What a lucky coincidence - conveniently, we happen to have a very related project in the very final stages of development. More information will be available really soon.

We are back home after an exciting and exhausting marathon that is Gamescom.

It was our honor and joy to meet so many of our fans in person. Thank you for stopping by! We are proud to have captured the attention of thousands of visitors, with so many people ready to stand for hours in the long queue to give a try to our truck sim motion seat setups. There was a reward there - a chance to be the first to drive through segments of the upcoming American Truck Simulator - Utah and Euro Truck Simulator 2 - Road to the Black Sea map DLC expansions.

Of course, we are well aware that only a small fraction of our games' fan base can make it to any gaming expo. So if you are interested in at least getting an impression of the atmosphere of a major gaming show from our perspective, we have created a short video recap for you. We'd also like to thank all the hardware and equipment manufacturers for their support in making sure that playing our games at Gamescom has been a first-class experience.
