Ah, Euro Truck Simulator 2. I've never especially been interested in trucks (trains are more my guilty pleasure), but there's something compelling and, well, downright fun about this game, which let me tell you, is very rare in a simulator, especially if you're not an enthusiast of the particular subject at hand. It's a pretty rare example of how simulators can, well, actually be decent, when executed properly.
And despite being released back in 2012, it's still being supported with new DLC content, and free engine updates, albeit not to the gross extent at Train Simulator's £10,000+ worth of DLC content. It's decent, actually, and it's latest, Beyond the Baltic Sea, is releasing next week.
The DLC takes you to new areas within Russia and Finland, with over 13,000km of new roads, 24 new cities, and brand new trailers.
Lots of classic landmarks from places as far as Lithuania to St. Ptersburg are included, along with the incredibly atmospheric environments, such as docks, trams, and city landmarks
If you've yet to jump onto the Euro Truck bandwagon, it's still well worth doing so, despite it's age, it still looks great, plays nicely and is weirdly soothing to play. The new DLC is available next week on Steam for $18 US.
