New ‘Euro Truck Simulator 2’ DLC Hits The Road December 5th
- Road to the Black Sea is just around the corner.
- Experience Romania, Bulgaria, and Turkey.
- New trailer, but no price listing yet.
Euro Truck Simulator 2 is the game that just keeps on trucking. Even as American Truck Simulator is taking SCS Software through the western United States right now, the company’s well-traveled European tour keeps expanding eastward, and yet again it’s about to reach further in Road to the Black Sea.
The latest trailer for the upcoming DLC puts the beautiful Eastern European setting on display, with music to fit the mood. Driving through townships, rolling hills, massive cities, and even showcasing a rather intimate search by Turkish border patrol makes it look like Road To The Black Sea is SCS Software’s way of saying they’ve only just begun with Euro Truck Simulator 2. The latest DLC will sport the following features as listed on Steam:
- Over 10.000 kilometers of roads to drive on.
- Romania, Bulgaria, and European part of Turkey to explore.
- Europe’s largest city, Istanbul.
- 11 new local company docks and industries.
- 20 new major cities and many smaller towns and settlements.
- Famous landmarks and recognizable places.
- Characteristic Balkan architecture.
- Brand new unique 3D-assets.
- Lush regional vegetation.
- Local AI trains, trams, and traffic cars.
- Horse carts – for Bulgarian and Romanian countrysides.
- Border crossings – including feature-rich border controls.
- River ferry over the Danube (Dunaj).
- Black Sea region achievements to unlock.
If you’re not big into simulation games, it’s quite possible you’ve never heard of Euro Truck Simulator 2. Shoot, even if you’re into simulators that possibility is still relatively high since it seems like the most popular simulators are either flight simulators or war simulators. Euro Truck Simulator 2 was released in 2012, and each year it’s had a plethora of both free updates and paid content drops. There’s a lot of cosmetic and optional DLCs to buy which can definitely add up, but for region DLC that brings new areas and new features, they’ve always been worth the money and usually run between $15 and $30. If you need a relaxing experience, Euro Truck Simulator 2 is easily one of the best ones I can recommend.
If Elite: Dangerous is what many people would call a “space trucking simulator” then SCS Software’s trucking games are for those who want to keep things more grounded. You start out with freelancing jobs and then eventually build up your own company while driving all over Europe, and each year there’s more to experience. What’s not to love? I actually wrote about the game at length earlier this year if you missed it, you may consider giving it a read. Now if you’ll excuse me, the open road is calling me again.
